It does seem that hardware industry is dictating terms to content world with more advanced technologies surfacing in the market very frequently of late. As of now, there is a shortage of Full HD content, but the likes of Dell are already preparing the markets for better content and sharper images. Dell, of course, is the latest entrant in the league of 4K monitor manufacturers. The market name for its new monitor is UltraSharp 32. Technically though, this model is referred to as UP3214Q.
The monitor is about 31.5 inches in size with resolution of 3840 by 2160 pixels. Consequently, it comes under 4K category, which is the Ultra HD category. In comparison to UltraHD 4K, full HD monitors have a resolution of only 1080p. This is also the largest monitor from Dell as of date primarily aimed at graphic designers, engineers, CAD / CAM users, photographers, game developers, and video game players.
Other specifications of this monitor include IPS panel IGZO, viewing angle of 176 degrees, DCR (Dynamic contrast ratio) of 2000000: 1, brightness of 350 cd/m2, and gray response time of 8ms.
The degree of viewing angle includes both vertical as well as horizontal. Normally DCR is about 1,000: 1, so Dell’s monitor is considerably superior.
As to connectivity, this monitor includes 1.2a version DisplayPort as well as mini DisplayPort. In addition, it includes other ports, i.e., 4 USB 3.0 ports for downstream and 1 USB 3.0 for upstream connectivity apart from HDMI and media card reader.
The world is not yet prepared for Full HD experience. This perfection, while technologically desirable, is perhaps much ahead of its time. However, the product will be appreciated in its targeted market, even though it carries a price tag of $3,500, which is a tad on the higher side considering its lack of demand in gadgets market.
