Dell today announced its very first monitor to feature support for the HDR10 standard by the UHD Alliance. Carrying the model number UP2718Q, the new UltraSharp monitor features a 27-inch IPS monitor with UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution.
With Ultra HD 4K resolution, the monitor can resolve four times more detail when compared to conventional monitors with full HD resolution. It also boasts a 1.07 billion color depth with a broad color gamut coverage. The monitor covers 100 percent Adobe RGB, 100 percent sRGB, 100 percent REC 709, 97.7% DCI-P3, and 76.9% of the REC2020 color gamut. Just like other high-end UltraSharp monitors from Dell, the UP2718Q too is factory-calibrated for optimum color accuracy. With such impressive specs, the UltraSharp UP2718Q is undoubtedly a dream monitor for all the video editors and other professionals who perform similar color-critical work.
Since it supports the HDR10 standard, Dell claims the monitor reaches peak brightness of 1000 nits when showing HDR content, while with SDR material it drops to around 400 nits. Connectivity options offered by the UP2718Q include two HDMI 2.0a ports, 1 mini-DisplayPort 1.4, 1 DisplayPort 1.4, 2 USB 3.0 ports, and a USB hub with four USB 3.0 ports.
Dell will begin selling the new monitor in the US through its online store starting May 23rd for $2,000 (SGD 2795).
