For a display used primarily for professional purposes—photo manipulation, modeling, or graphic design—accurate color reproduction is an absolute necessity. That's exactly the promise behind ViewSonic's newly-announced display, the VP2771, which ViewSonic says will offer "superior color accuracy and uniformity for color critical applications" thanks to factory calibration for Delta E≤2 color precision—a standard in color reproduction sought after by professionals.
ViewSonic says the VP2771's color calibration includes the sRGB, EBU, SMPTE-C, Rec.709, and DICOM-SIM color spaces, each of which are standards for different media, such as PC monitors, NTSC television signals, and medical displays. In addition to factory calibration, ViewSonic offers a separate hardware calibration option, the ViewSonic Colorbration kit, which is an additional $280 on top of the monitor's retail price.
The VP2771 features a USB 3.1 Type-C input, which ViewSonic says makes it one of the first professional-grade monitors on the market with the feature. The display also offers HDMI, DisplayPort, Mini DisplayPort, and MHL 2.0 inputs. The USB input is a proper USB 3.1 Type-C input, supporting transfer of video, audio, power, and data. The display also features a built-in ambient-light sensor, KVM switch, and the ability to display images from two physical inputs side-by-side.
ViewSonic suggests a $734 price tag for this display, but Newegg already has it on sale for just $539.
