HP Unveils New DreamColor Displays And Z Turbo SSD
HP announced new DreamColor pro displays and a new workstation-class SSD Sunday at NAB 2014 in Las Vegas.
The new HP Z27x and Z24x displays for PCs and Macs feature HP?s second-generation DreamColor Engine and provide up to 1.07 billion colors, achieving color error so small that it is not discernable to the human eye. Compared to HP's previous-generation product, the new displays include up to 60 percent more pixels, contain up to a 4,000 percent increase in the internal color palette and are up to 57 percent thinner.
The HP Z24x DreamColor Display delivers the color accuracy and consistency that has become synonymous with the HP DreamColor brand, at less than 25 percent of the price of the original HP DreamColor display.
Key features of the new displays include:
- 10-bit color accuracy from design to production with push-button color space selection and easy color calibration
- One-button access to presets including sRGB D65, sRGB D50, Adobe RGB, BT.709, BT.2020 and DCI-P3
- Ability to create a custom color space with full control over primaries, white point and tone response
- Easy connection to existing workflows through support by Windows, Mac or Linux operating systems
The top-of-the-line HP Z27x DreamColor Display also offers:
- An ultrawide Digital Cinema color gamut with 100 percent of sRGB, 100 percent of AdobeRGB and 99 percent of DCI-P3
- The HP Night Vision interface with auto-fade button backlights and selectable red button backlight color for better low-light viewing in darkened working conditions
The HP DreamColor Z27x and Z24x are available today for $1,499 and $599, respectively.
HP's new workstation SSD is only for their Z family workstations. It can be used as both a boot and data drive and in a RAID0 array can match the performance of the Fusion-io drive that HP also sells.
The Z Turbo Drive consists an M.2 mobile form factor workstation-class PCIe SSD mounted on a PCIe card. HP says 2 Z Turbo drives can exceed 1GB/sec sustained read performance.
HP Z Turbo Drive is expected to be available starting in May. The drive will launch with two capacities available, 256 GB and 512 GB, priced at $499 and $899.
