Unveiled: New HP DreamColor Displays
HP announced two new DreamColor displays today that once again see HP bringing to market critical color accuracy for digital artists, photographers, and videographers—the HP Z27x and HP Z24x displays for PCs and Macs. They provide up to 1.07 billion on-screen colors, giving them a color-correction error margin so small that it is not discernible by the human eye.
The new displays are capable of showing off 60% more pixels than the previous DreamColor monitors, with a 4,000% increase in the internal color palette. They’re also 57% thinner than the previous model, with the HP Z724x only 25% of the price of the original DreamColor display.
The HP Z727x features three times the color accuracy of the previous generation, an integrated color-calibration engine with support for third-party calibration instruments, and Ethernet-based remote management of the display through an integrated web server. It is also capable of 4K support. A software development kit is available that allows the end user to integrate the monitor into their workflow.
"There will be consistent 10-bit color accuracy..."
Both displays are designed with HP’s engineering expertise behind them. There will be consistent 10-bit color accuracy, the ability to create custom color spaces with total control over important areas like color primaries, white point, and tone response, and one-button access to color space presets such as sRGB, Adobe RGB, Rec. 709, Rec. 2020, and DCI-P3.
The HP Z727x will also feature an ultra-wide Digital Cinema Color range that will include 100% of AdobeRGB, 100% of sRGB, and 99% of DCI-P3. In addition, it will include a Night Vision interface with auto-fade backlight and selectable red-button backlight color for enhanced low-light viewing in dim working conditions.
