Share this content

Dell have today announced their new UltraSharp 32 4K Video Conferencing monitor, the U3223QZ. Featuring what Dell claim is the “most intelligent webcam in a 31.5″ 4K video conferencing monitor” the U3223QZ is also based on LG.Display’s new ‘IPS Black’ technology. It offers a wide range of features and extras for enhanced productivity in office and work environments.

Dell UltraSharp U3223QZ Spec

The screen is 31.5″ in size and offers a 3840 x 2160 “4K” resolution IPS panel. This also has a 5ms G2G response time (Fast mode), 2000:1 contrast ratio (more on that in a moment), 400 cd/m2 brightness, 178/178 viewing angles, 1.07b colour depth and a wide colour gamut covering 100% sRGB and 98% DCI-P3. The screen comes factory calibrated in the sRGB, Rec.709 and DCI-P3 modes apparently with a dE <2 listed.

The screen features Dell’s “ComfortView” low blue light technology as well. HDR wise don’t expect much as the screen only carries the lowly HDR 400 certification. We know there are the colour enhancements associated with HDR included at least, but don’t expect any local dimming or any major improvements to peak brightness either.

IPS Black Technology

This is LG.Display’s latest IPS panel innovation which is designed to increase contrast ratio, and improve dark image viewing from an angle (i.e. reduce common “IPS glow”). We brought you some early information back in July 2021 about this in our last LG.Display panel roadmap update and we knew at the time that one of the two currently planned panels was a 31.5″ 4K offering – which is what Dell are using here for this monitor.

Spec wise the Dell U3223QZ offers an impressive 2000:1 contrast ratio, doubling that of most IPS technology panels. It will be very interesting to see how this performs in real use once it’s launched. This could be a positive sign of things to come for IPS panels if manufacturers can improve contrast ratio. It also remains to be seen what improvements it offers to dark content viewing from an angle, and reducing IPS glow.

Intelligent Webcam

A large part of the marketing and promotion for this new screen is around its integrated webcam. It includes a 4K HDR Sony STARVIS™ CMOS sensor. This offers features like automatic focus with AI auto framing, light adjustments, ‘Digital Overlap HDR’ and 3D/2D video noise reduction; all designed to enhance visual clarity. Video is possible at 4K 30fps or 1080p 30/60 fps.

To help you communicate clearly there are integrated dual array echo cancellation mics and two 14W speakers. For ease of use you can rely on secure interactions with automatic camera disable mode, and get to work fast with Dell ExpressSign-in that senses when you are close and signs you in via Windows Hello. The system also allows you to launch MS Team meetings effortlessly on the monitor which has been “Certified for Microsoft Teams”. The camera is also adjustable with 0-20° tilt, while you can also customize how much show of your surroundings by adjusting the field of view to 65°, 78°, 90°.

Productivity Enhancement with USB-C, KVM, RJ45 and PiP/PbP

Other productivity enhancing features include USB-C hub (90W power delivery), RJ45 Ethernet connection, built in KVM functionality, Picture In Picture (PiP) and Picture by Picture (PbP). With this you can connect to two PC sources and the Auto KVM will seamlessly switch controls over to the second connected PC. Use KVM (keyboard, video and mouse) to control both PCs with a single mouse and keyboard. The stand offers tilt, swivel and height adjustments (no rotate).

Connectivity

For video connectivity there is 1x DisplayPort 1.4 (with DSC), 1x DisplayPort output (for daisy chaining), 1x HDMI 2.0 and 1x USB type-C (DP Alt mode with DSC, 90W power delivery. There is also then 1 x USB-C data upstream 10Gbps, 4x USB 3.2 ports, 1x RJ45 Ethernet on the rear of the screen. On the bottom for quick access is also 1x USB 3.2 with fast charging, 1x USB-C (data only no video, 10Gbps, 15W power delivery) and a headphone/mic combo jack.
