The new DreamColor Displays, along with HP ZCentral and NVIDIA Omniverse, will make creating with teams easier.
The global pandemic has shown us that we need new solutions when it comes to working from home. Many of us creatives need to collaborate with team members daily, but that is now harder than ever. HP, however, has been trying to figure out solutions to help us stay in touch. Today, HP announced new DreamColor Displays that are Pantone validated and a new remote collaboration tool called ZCentral, which allows us to create and collaborate in real-time. We have all the details for you after the break.
The biggest news for photographers to come from these HP announcements is the new HP Z DreamColor Displays. It’s absolutely essential for us to have color-accurate monitors that can display our images cleanly without detail loss. If you work as part of a creative team, you might also be interested in the new HP ZCentral.
HP DreamColor Displays
According to HP, the new HP Z25xs G3 and Z27xs G3 DreamColor displays are precise and color accurate. HP Z DreamColor displays are compatible with all devices and platforms. HP says that these are the world’s first color-critical HDR monitors with one-touch brightness adjust. The one-touch feature is actually quite nice. Faffing around in menus on monitors can be incredibly frustrating. Some of the key features of HP’s new DreamColor displays include:
- Over a billion on-screen colors, PANTONE Validated™ color gamut, up to HDR 600 for greater contrast.
- Vibrant colors, customized workflow color presets, and factory-calibrated color right out of the box.
- Experience complete compatibility without limits connecting to a Mac or PC with a single USB-C cable
- One-touch brightness allows users to quickly view work at maximum brightness with the touch of a button and then back to its previous state without breaking your workflow
The DreamColor displays will deliver flawless color accuracy. They also feature ultra-thin profiles with frameless viewing. HP Easy Eyes is another new feature that includes an always-on blue light that does not affect color accuracy.
The new line-up comes in a range of sizes, up to 4K resolution, and offers complete compatibility across devices with 100W USB-C power delivery. The HP Z25xs G3 QHD USB-C DreamColor Display is expected to be available in March 2021 for a starting price of $599. The 4K HP Z27xs G3 USB-C DreamColor Display is expected to be available in March 2021 for a starting price of $749.
There will also be more new HP monitors that range from 24-inches in size up to 27-inches. These displays feature display technologies ranging from FHD, WUXGA, QHD, and 4K. Their prices range from $239 to $599.
HP ZCentral and NVIDIA Omniverse
If you have a large team and need to work and design together remotely during the pandemic, HP Z Central with NVIDIA Omniverse might be for you. The real-time collaboration could be a powerful tool for photographers, artists, and designers.
Creators can capture ideas, conceptualize, and work with remote teams using natural inking with the enhanced Wacom display and tablet preview experience. That’s right; you can design and edit on the fly together with Wacom tablets (see our review of the Wacom Intuos Pro Creative Pen Tablet). The new real-time service supports multiple operating systems and programs. If you would like more information about the new DreamColor Displays or HP ZCentral, head on over to HP’s official website.
