New Dell monitors display images at four times full HD

Dell has announced three new additions to its UltraSharp range of professional graphics monitors, each capable of displaying four times the resolution of full HD footage.

Ultra HD resolution at 60Hz
Unlike Dell’s existing UltraSharp monitors, which have an optimal resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels at 60Hz, the new UltraSharp 24, 28 and 32 Ultra HD have an optimal resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 at 60 Hz.

Compared to the UltraSharp 30 PremierColor, Dell’s previous top-of-the-range model, the safe viewing angle is marginally decreased (from 178° to 176°) and response time marginally increased (from 6ms to 8ms), but colour gamut remains unchanged, at 99% of Adobe RGB (10-bit/1.07 billion colours).

Pro-grade panels are very pricey; the consumer-grade model will be cheaper
Buying now will set you back a lot: at $1,399, the 24″ UltraSharp 24 Ultra HD costs more than the 30″ UltraSharp 30 PremierColor, while the 31.5″ UltraSharp 32 Ultra HD comes in at a whopping $3,499.

However, the final model in the range, the 28″ UltraSharp 28 Ultra HD, which uses a consumer-grade LCD panel, will be priced “under $1,000”. It’s due to ship in “early 2014”.
