ViewSonic VP2771 display promises precise color

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.

    I don’t know but I just can’t shake the perception that Viewsonic designs are kinda dorky. Haven’t had a Viewsonic in ages. Used to have a Viewsonic 17″ PF775 and I loved it.

    It must have really low resolution since that’s not even mentioned in the blurb. I’m guessing 1080p or even 720p. But at least those huge pixels will have extremely accurate color reproduction.

      Link says 1440p.

    Data?

      It has a USB hub built into it which can communicate back through the USB3.1 connection to the PC.

    The built-in KVM is a big deal considering I just spent $85 on a dual-DisplayPort switch.
