Dell has used Adobe MAX as an opportunity to announce the UltraSharp 27 4K PremierColor Monitor, a new 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels) Thunderbolt 3 monitor made with photographers and videographers in mind.
The monitor, which goes under the product code UP2720Q, is the world’s first 27-inch 4K monitor with a built-in colorimeter and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity that not only makes it possible to daisy-chain two monitors together but also lets you fully power a connected laptop at up to 90W.
The monitor features 100-percent Adobe RGB coverage, 98-percent DCI-P3 coverage and 80-percent BT2020 coverage — impressive numbers considering all of the other features this monitor has to offer. The stand-out feature of this monitor is a built-in colorimeter that pops out of the bottom bezel of the display and works with CalMAN color calibration software to consistently check the monitor’s color accuracy.
Other specs include a pixel density of 163ppi, a 1,300:1 contrast ratio, an 8ms response time and a less-then-stellar 250 nits ‘typical’ brightness. Aside from the two Thunderbolt 3 ports (one upstream, one downstream), the display also features one Display Port 1.4 connection, two HDMI connections, three USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports (downstream) and a single USB 3.2 Gen 2 port (downstream) with 2A ‘Power Charging.’
The monitor comes with an included shading hood and is expected to ship January 15, 2020 for $1,999.99.
