HP’s large, professional-grade 4K display features a 10-bit color spectrum, IPS panel and more

The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show is in full swing this week with several tech giants in attendance to show off their latest products. One of the first to catch the eye is HP’s new DreamColor Z32x, a professional-grade 4K monitor that’s certainly impressive…at least, on paper.

As Digital Trends notes, HP’s drool-worthy monitor features a 31.5-inch IPS display sporting a proper 3,840 x 2,160 resolution. Connectivity options include HDMI 2.0 and 1.4 as well as a Full Size and a Mini DisplayPort 1.2. There is also a built-in USB 3.0 hub with fast charging support for mobile devices.

The display has a picture-in-picture mode that allows users to view streams from each of the four inputs simultaneously. Other noteworthy specs include a 1,000:1 static/5,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, 8ms gray-to-gray response ratio and a total weight of 23.5 pounds.

Best of all, the display offers 10-bit color reproduction and is factory calibrated to cover the full sRGB spectrum as well as 99% Adobe RGB.

The only “knock” on the DreamColor Z32x is that it doesn’t support variable refresh rates, so it wouldn’t be ideal for gaming. Again, the monitor is designed for professionals involved in content creation, so counting that against it is a bit unfair.

Pricing has yet to be revealed, but when it does arrive this summer I assure you it won’t be cheap.
