During Computex, Viewsonic showed a 31.5" monitor with an extremely high resolution of 3840x2160 pixels, four times the resolution of the Full HD screens most LCD-screens have. With the new resolution, the screen has a pixel density of 150 ppi, which, compared to screens used in the latest smartphones and tablets, is still relatively low. Viewsonic's new 31.5" uses an efficient LED backlight and a panel that is compatible with 10-bit colours. This means that the screen has significantly more colours than a regular 8-bit panel with 16.7 million colours. Two dual-link DVI connectors are required to produce the resolution.
Engadget has taken a closer look at the screen and was impressed by both the clarity and colour reproduction of the screen. The images and video Engadget made of the new VP3280-LED showed that Viewsonic is raising the bar of LCD-technology with its latest addition. While the quad Full HD resolution allows for fullscreen 1080p playback, the monitor is intended for business purpose. The extra high resolution and exceptional colour reproduction should make the screen perfect for image editing, graphics design and 3D-modelling. The price will also scare off most consumers, as Viewsonic mentioned that the screen is similarly priced to a new car.
