Lenovo hasn’t been known for the quality of the display panels they put in their products. Ever since the company took over IBM’s computer business, the ThinkPad line has been virtually useless to photographers. Bad contrast and brightness, bad viewing angles and low color fidelity–except for the incredibly expensive W series. So, understandably, we were pretty dazzled when we heard that the company known for the world’s most rubbsih notebook displays just announced a professional 30″ screen that they claim will cover 99% of the Adobe RGB color gamut.
The announcement of the ThinkVision LT3053p display has so far only been made in Japanese, and from what we can tell from the Google translation this could be very interesting for photographers. Besides the ginormous 30″ real estate and the incredible color gamut, the display sports a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels–not quite enough to edit 4k video, but still promising crisp images and a lot of space for photo and video editing.
Further specifications are:
- AH-IPSLED LCD panel
- Multi-input with PIP (Picture-in-Picture) and PBP (Picture-by-Picture)
- 45° rotatable
- Energy Star 6.0 and TCO 6.0 energy efficiency ratings
- Two USB 2.0 ports
- Dual DVI-D input
- MHL (Mobile HD Link)
The LT3053p will be shipping from April 11th at the very attractive retail price of US-$ 1599, according to dpreview.
