PALO ALTO, Calif., June 1, 2010 – HP today announced its first 30-inch monitor to display a range of more than 1 billion colors, the HP ZR30w S-IPS LCD Display.
Adding to the already powerful lineup of HP Performance Displays, the 30-inch diagonal display provides 30-bits per pixel color resolution and 1.07 billion displayable colors, compared to 16.7 million colors available on most 30-inch diagonal panels.
Ideal for professionals in animation, game development, broadcast, design and graphic arts where accurate color is imperative, the HP ZR30w achieves more than 64 times the colors available on mainstream LCDs. With a wide gamut panel that covers 100 percent of sRGB and 99 percent of Adobe RGB, reds, blues and greens are visibly deeper.
“HP continues to drive innovation in the monitor space with solutions that push the boundaries of traditional panel technology," said Jun Kim, Vice President and General Manager, Display Business Unit, HP. “The HP ZR30w is the latest example of our commitment to provide customers with the technology they demand to push the limits of creativity and increase ROI.”
The new HP ZR30w features 4.1 million pixels, to achieve maximum accuracy, and touts a resolution of 2560 x 1600 in a 16:10 aspect ratio and a 3000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, for brilliant visual performance.
Building on the HP ZR30w’s wide viewing angles and outstanding visual performance technologies, the monitor is equipped with DisplayPort and DVI-D inputs, an integrated 4-port USB hub and an HP Quick Release(1) for simple out-of-the-box set up. The HP ZR30w enables maximum comfort and best visual positioning with a 6-way adjustable stand that provides tilt, swivel and height adaptability.
The performance monitor features a brushed aluminum industrial design that is complementary to HP’s Z Workstations,(2) and uses a minimum of 25 percent post-consumer recycled resin. Additionally, the monitor houses a lower power panel and comes with an 85 percent efficient power supply.(3)
Small business, big value
HP also introduced the Compaq S1922 and Compaq S2021 Widescreen LCD Monitors that are designed for small and medium businesses that want value and reliability. The Compaq S1922 and S2021’s VGA inputs make “plug and play” connectivity quick and easy, while adjustable tilt settings enable best visual positioning and VESA mounting capabilities free up desk space. The monitors also offer guaranteed out-of-the-box compatibility with HP business products and HP monitor options.(2)
Available in 18.5- and 20-inch diagonal sizes, both displays feature a broad 16:9 aspect ratios, fast 5 ms response times(3) and 5,000:1 dynamic contrast ratios. The Compaq S1922 features wide resolutions to 1366 x 768, while the Compaq S2021 offers resolutions to 1600 x 900.
Both monitors use lower power consumption panels that contain 50 percent less mercury than other four lamp LCD monitors on the market.
Pricing and availability
The HP ZR30w is available today for a starting price of U.S. $1,299. The Compaq S1922 and S2021 are also available today in the U.S. at $125 and $140, respectively.(4)
