ViewSonic VP2780-4K

Animation Magazine - - Visual Effects -

For those out there who like their res­o­lu­tion huge and their col­ors deep, ViewSonic has the VP2780-4K.

This is a mid-priced mon­i­tor — it costs about $1,000 — aimed at pro­fes­sion­als who are cost-con­scious but need the color-ac­cu­racy for their clients. And it looks like, at a rea­son­able glance, that it de­liv­ers the goods.

Each mon­i­tor is tested be­fore it is shipped, and my mon­i­tor came with its cal­i­bra­tion grade re­port rank­ing its sRGB and Na­tive col­ors at an av­er­age Delta-E less than or equal to 2 ( Delta-E be­ing the dis­tance be­tween two col­ors, 1.0 be­ing the low­est num­ber then hu­man eye can per­ceive). Not too shabby. This means that my mon­i­tor is tested at near the tar­geted 100 per­cent of sRGB’s color range. ViewSonic also states that the mon­i­tor will hit 80 per­cent of the AdobeRGB gamut. Along with the wide color, ViewSonic has a t h r e e - yea r war­ranty that cov­ers any dead pix­els.

The dis­play it­self is crisp through its matte, anti-glare LCD sur­face sur­rounded by the thin 22mm bezel. There is no flicker as it dis­plays 3,840 by 2,160 res­o­lu­tion driven through the Dis­playPort jack by an NVidia K5200. Ad­di­tional in­puts in­clude another Dis­playPort, but mini-size to Ap­ple specs, plus an HDMI 2.0 jack (also sup­port­ing 60mHz re­fresh at 4K), and a cou­ple more MHL jacks.

The mount is not the most ro­bust piece I’ve ever seen, but the mon­i­tor is so light that it doesn’t re­quire much.

The pri­mary tar­get — the color-grade spe­cial­ists — I feel should be rea­son­ably happy. And the fa­cil­i­ties will be happy be­cause com­pos­i­tors will be able to have color-ac­cu­rate mon­i­tors with­out blow­ing the bud­get.
