HP Announces DreamColor Color Critical Display

HP announced the immediate availability of the DreamColor LP2480xz professional display for color critical work on Tuesday. The 24-inch LED-backlit display supports 30-bit color for a range of more than one billion colors, and is designed for animation, game development, film and video post production, broadcast, product design and graphic arts.

Unlike other LED-backlit displays, the DreamColor display uses RGB LEDs instead of white, allowing for better control over color and color consistency.

The DreamColor LP2480xz ships with several pre-defined color workspaces including Adobe RGB, sRGB, Rec. 601, Rec. 709, and DCI-IP3, and users can create and save their own custom color workspaces. User definable attributes including primaries, gamma, white point and luminance are all controllable through the optional HP DreamColor Advanced Profiling Solution with colorimiter, too.

The display sports DisplayPort 1.1, HDMI 1.3, DVI-I, analog, component, S-video, and composite inputs, along with HDCP support for protected content. It also includes tilt, swivel, height and pivot adjustments, and a built-in 4-port self-powered USB 2.0 hub.

The DreamColor LP2480xz is Mac OS X and Windows compatible and priced at US$3,499.
