Dell’s first HDR display is aimed squarely at video editors

by John_A

HDR10 and Dolby Vision are the two main competing standards for high dynamic range displays. Today, Dell lent its support to the former as it announced its first HDR10-compliant display, the Dell UltraSharp 27 4K HDR Monitor. Dell revealed the new device at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show today, along with two other UltraSharp monitors and various PC workstations for high-end image, video and VR production.

While 4K is the term bandied about most often, HDR brings better contrast, brightness, and vibrant color to the mix. It’s not just the number of pixels that are important anymore, but what your monitor does with them. Dell’s new 27-inch monitor, then, is meant for creative professionals who view and edit HDR content, but it will also work just fine with consoles like the NVIDIA Shield, Xbox One S and PlayStation 4, all of which support the standard. Dell is also showing off a couple of products it had at CES: the Precision 5720 All-in-One workstation PC for digital content creators and the Dell Canvas, its 27-inch touchscreen device that’s set to take on Wacom’s devices for digital artists.

You’ll be able to get Dell’s new display at Dell.com in the US on May 23rd, and it will retail for $1,999.99. Of course, if you want a 4K display but don’t need HDR, Dell’s standard 27-inch 4K monitor is a much more affordable $550.
