Color-critical display with 1 billion color range

HP has released its new color-critical computer professional display. The HP DreamColor Display features a new liquid crystal display (LCD) that provides a range of more than 1 billion colors in a 30-bit, LED-backlit display.

The display is the result of technology collaboration with DreamWorks Animation SKG and addresses an increasingly critical need for consistent color accuracy in the animation, game development, film/video post, broadcast, product design and graphic arts categories.

An HP spokesperson said its DreamColor display is expected to make it possible to have a color-critical LCD display on every desk to make color checks, redesigns and multiple proofs a thing of the past.

Designed for professionals for whom accurate color management is essential and consumers who seek to use new technology, the HP DreamColor display achieves more than 64 times the colors available on mainstream LCDs. Reds, blues and greens are visibly deeper, blacks are four times darker and whites are adjustable.

The DreamColor display is designed to match the requirements of professional industry standards and includes one-button access to seven pre-sets covering all the important color space standards. The display also includes a night vision interface for darkroom working conditions.

"Until now, accurate and standout color has been out of reach for the majority of digital content creators," said Jun Kim, vice president and general manager, Displays, Personal Systems Group, HP. "Our DreamColor display advances color accuracy for the world's storytellers, our most demanding of customers of performance technologies."
