HP has been making a line of monitors that aim at very high levels of color reproduction for years now. These monitors fall into the DreamColor range and are aimed at pros that need the most color reproduction possible. Two new monitors have been added to the range including the Z27x and Z24x.




These screen swill work with Mac or PC systems and each support up to 1.07 billion colors on the screen. HP says that the amount of color error the screens produce is so small that the human eye can't even see it. Both of the monitors have 10-bit color accuracy and are made for easy color calibration using commercially available sensors.


The Z27x supports 100% of the sRGB gamut, 100% of the AdobeRGB gamut, and 99% of the DCI-P3 gamut. This monitor also supports HP Night vision interface that has fading button backlights and a red backlight color for better visibility in low light.


The major difference between the Z24x and Z27x comes in screen sizes, which are indicated by the product names, and in resolution. The 27-inch Z27x supports 4K ultra HD resolution while the Z24x supports 2k resolution. Both are available now with the Z27x selling for $1499 and the Z24x selling for $599.
