Billed as the ‘world’s first affordable colour-criticaldisplay’, the new HP DreamColour Display boasts 1 billion colours in a 30-bitLED backlit LCD.

Made in collaboration with DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc, themonitor is said to address, according to HP, "an increasingly critical need foraffordable and consistent color accuracy in the animation, game development,film/video post, broadcast, product design and graphic arts categories."

Currently LCD technology isn’t good enough when it comes tocolour accuracy for imaging professionals, with most still using CRTs to colourcorrect and the like. The DreamColour Display is looking to address this problem.

A filmmaker’s dream

Speaking about the monitor, Ed Leonard, chief technologyofficer, DreamWorks Animation, said: "With the new DreamColor display, HP hasbroken through barriers that have existed in display technology for the pastdecade.

"The new display packs a list of significant advances intoone amazingly powerful display, enabling an unprecedented level of colormanagement and fidelity in our production process. It’s a digital filmmaker’sdream."

The 30in monitor is out now in the states for an ‘affordable’price of $3,499 (£1,750). There’s no news of it reaching our shores in theimmediate future, but we will as always keep you posted.
