★ HP DreamColor Professional Display LCD


Have a gander at what has arrived on my desk, talk about one seriously cool monitor. This is the HP DreamColor LP2480zx Professional Display LCD and I’ve received it in from HP Australia to review.

What’s the difference between this and other monitors on the market, it has the ability to display one billion active colours!

The HP DreamColor is aimed at professional photographers and graphic designers who need true colour representation on a consistent basis, ie. it pretty well displays the same day to day and no matter whether it’s been on for 10 minutes or 6 hours.

Anyway, I’ll be having a play with it over the next week and I’ll let you know how it goes. Meanwhile here’s a few of the features and some more photos. Enjoy!


  • Billion-color possibilities. Enjoy support for over one billion active colors—64 times the colors supported by traditional LCDs—from the innovative 30-bit LCD panel technology
  • Breakthrough color control. Achieve what you intended with unprecedented color fidelity through a tri-color LED backlight; work with deeper colors, CRT-class black, and programmable white all on a 24-inch diagonal wide-aspect screen.
  • Vision-to-production precision. Customize seven color space presets for luminance, gamma, gamut, and white point; achieve completely accurate rendition of sRGB, Adobe RGB, SMPTE-C, and Rec.709, and 95% of DCI at the touch of a button.
  • Enhanced connectivity. Get connected to all your devices with analog, DVI-I, Display Port 1.1, HDMI 1.3, component, S-video, and composite inputs, HDCP support for protected content, and an integrated USB hub.
