A Billion Colors on LCD - Now Not Only for DreamWorks

    HP ZR30wYesterday, HP released the next replenishment of its DreamColor monitor line, designed for professionals in the printing industry, 3D animation, industrial design and all those who really care about color accuracy. Thanks to the 30-bit S-IPS matrix, the 30-inch HP ZR30w is capable of displaying more than 1 billion colors, 64 times more than the vast majority of modern 24-bit LCD monitors.

    ZR30w displays the entire sRGB palette and 99% Adobe RGB. For the average user, this will mean that all the colors will look more like themselves, and the objects on the screen will appear deeper, brighter and sharper than on the monitor on which you are reading this text.

    Together with outstanding color gamut settings, the ZR30w is distinguished by a resolution of 2560x1600 pixels and a dynamic contrast ratio of 3000: 1. Thus, the traditional lag of S-IPS matrices in contrast was practically overcome.

    But the most important, in my opinion, parameter of the new DreamColor is its price, in the USA starting from $ 1,299. Is it expensive?

    But let me remind you that in June 2008, HP introduced the HP DreamColor LP2480zx monitor , which is also capable of transmitting a color depth of 30 bits (10 bits per pixel). LCD monitors with such parameters were then available only to professionals who were not confused by the 5-digit dollar amount on the price tag. The same model was developed for two years specifically for the DreamWorks Animation studio, which did not want to invest so much in the upgrade of the jobs of its employees, who were still forced to use CRT monitors. The starting price of the HP LP2480zx was $ 3,499 - and it was radically cheap!

    Of course, it is too early to wait for a novelty in Russia. And its price in rubles will not be so good ... But this is a completely different, sad story.
