We brought you some very early news about this screen back in August, but never published a full news pieces once proper information became available – so here it is. Dell have released a new 27″ model in their high-end semi-professional UltraSharp Premium range. The UP2720Q ‘PremierColor Monitor’ with a 4K resolution is aimed at colour critical work and even features a built in calibration colorimeter. You can save time by scheduling automated colour checks and calibrations, even when the screen is not being used or is off. The screen also works seamlessly with CalMAN software (sold separately) for calibration and colour control via the built in device or an external tool.
The screen is 27″ in size and features a 3840 x 2160 resolution IPS panel. There is an 8ms G2G response time (6ms in Fast mode), 1300:1 contrast ratio, 250 cd/m2 brightness, 178/178 viewing angles. Colour accuracy and capability is a huge focus and there is a true 10-bit panel delivering 1.07b colour depth. The backlight offers a wide gamut covering 98% DCI-P3, 100% Adobe RGB and 80% Rec.2020. The screen also comes factory calibrated offering a dE <1. Of course you will probably want to hardware calibrate the screens internal LUT with the integrated colorimeter or an external device. There is also a uniformity compensation option in the OSD menu to help ensure uniform brightness across the screen.
The screen also includes a shading hood to help prevent unwanted glare and reflections. PiP and PbP are supported. There are DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.0, 1x Thunderbolt 3 upstream, 1x Thunderbolt 3 downstream, 4x USB 3.2 ports, some with fast charging. The stand offers a full range of tilt, height, swivel and rotate adjustments, or can be removed for VESA mounting.
The UP2720Q should be available 15th January 2020 at a price of $1,999.99 USD.
