ViewSonic Unveils 32-Inch 8K Color-Accurate Monitor
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, January 14, 2021 @ 07:00 AM (EST)

ViewSonic has announced a new series of monitors called ColorPro ideally suited to photography. The monitors feature a “color-blind mode with advanced color adjustments for improved color recognition.”

The top model in the series is the 32-inch VP3286-8K, which offers a native resolution of 7680×4320—in other words, 8K—and displays 99% of the Adobe RGB color space. The monitor comes with a small “puck” that works both as a calibration device and as a module that acts as a backlight for photo editing. The monitor offers multiple connectivity options including Thunderbolt 3, DisplayPort, and a USB hub. Available in the summer, like all the monitors in the series, the VP3286-8K will set you back a cool $5,000.

If the 8K premium model seems like overkill, you can go for one of three 4K monitors released alongside it. Two of them, the 32-inch VP3286-4K ($2,000) and the 27-inch VP2786-4K ($1,000), offer 100% coverage of Adobe RGB and feature the same connectivity options. The third model, the 27-inch VP2776-4K ($900) covers 100% of the DCI-P3 color space (but no figure for Adobe RGB coverage has been provided). Lastly, if you’re not after high resolution, there’s a final model in the series, the 27-inch VP2776-2K ($500), which has a native resolution of 2560×1440 and offers 100% coverage of DCI-P3.
