This information originally appeared last month, but we didn’t cover it at the time. Some details of a new and interesting monitor from ViewSonic have appeared on Chinese retailer The ViewSonic VX2781-4K-PRO is a 27″ sized display with a 4K resolution, 160Hz maximum refresh rate and an impressive 1,152 zone Mini LED backlight for high end HDR performance. Loads more details below.

ViewSonic VX2781-4K-PRO Specs

The screen is 27″ in size and based on an IPS-type panel from (we believe) BOE. It has a 3840 x 2160 “4K” resolution and a high 160Hz max overclocked refresh rate. This is supported by adaptive-sync for VRR from both NVIDIA and AMD systems with expected ‘FreeSync Premium’ and ‘G-sync Compatible’ certifications.

There’s a 2ms G2G response time (1ms MPRT with motion blur reduction backlight mode), 1000:1 contrast ratio, 600 cd/m2 brightness (1000 cd/m2 peak for HDR), a 10-bit colour depth and a wide colour gamut covering 98% of the DCI-P3 reference and 96% of Adobe RGB. The screen also comes factory calibrated with dE < 1 in the sRGB mode.

The stand provides a full range of tilt, height, swivel and rotate adjustments. For connectivity there are 2x DisplayPort 1.4, 2x HDMI 2.1 (bandwidth and capabilities not listed) and a USB type-C (with 96W power delivery and DP alt mode) for video. There are also 4x USB data ports, a headphone jack and integrated 2x 5W speakers provided. The monitor supports PiP and PbP features as well as a KVM function.

1,152 zone Mini LED backlight for HDR

The screen has a 1,152 zone Mini LED backlight to offer excellent control over the screen content with a high number of zones on a screen this size. This allows high-end local dimming for HDR content, helping to significantly improve the contrast and dynamic range (with an 8 million:1 spec listed), while also reducing halos and blooming compared with screens with fewer zones. The screen is certified to the VESA DisplayHDR 1000 standard, and includes a 1000 nits peak brightness capability, along with the wide colour gamut and 10-bit colour depth support required for this certification.

Pricing and Availability

The monitor is listed there for the equivalent of ~$1000 USD. More details from official product pages along with regional pricing and availability to follow when we get it.
