ViewSonic Announces VP2785-4K 27-inch Ultra HD Monitor

ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solution products, introduces the VP2785-4K, a 27-inch 4K UHD (3840x2160) monitor that delivers precise and consistent color representation and performance to ensure incredible image quality. Built to deliver unmatched color accuracy for professional color-critical applications, the ViewSonic VP2785-4K ensures vibrant and intense color reproduction, making this monitor the perfect display solution for photographers, video and content producers and editors.

The ViewSonic VP2785-4K offers 4K UHD resolution, a wide color gamut and consistent performance with 99 percent Adobe RGB and 98 percent DCI-P3 colors and factory calibration to achieve Delta E <2 across multiple color spaces. Hardware calibration capability allows users to ensure best-in-class color accuracy, while the built-in uniformity function guarantees screen consistency. With USB 3.1 Type C, HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort, Mini DisplayPort 2.1 connectivity options, the VP2785-4K can be used with a variety of external devices. The HDCP 2.2 input provides content protection for 4K content playback, streaming and gaming.
With a built-in backlight sensor, the VP2785-4K can stabilize color in just three minutes, maintaining Adobe RGB and sRGB brightness stability for longer periods of time. Instead of the typical 30 plus minutes for a monitor to stabilize its brightness, chromaticity, and tone characteristics, the VP2785-4K has shortened the warm-up time to mere minutes.

Professional-grade features built into the ViewSonic VP2785-4K deliver richer color, contrast and enhanced details of content. From Broadcast and Cinema Presets for EBU, Rec.709, SMPTE-C and DCI with ready color spaces and gamma values; as well as Film Mode for smoother video playback, the VP2785-4K also supports HDR10 (High Dynamic Range) content decoding and playback. Skilled creative professionals will appreciate the built-in ambient light sensor, presence sensor, and KVM switch, which provide superior screen performance.

"The ViewSonic VP2785-4K was built for the professional photographer, content creator, videographer, graphic artist, or anyone that deals with color critical applications," said Kenneth Mau, senior product marketing manager at ViewSonic Americas. "With the VP2785-4K, we offer color uniformity and accuracy. From a 10-bit panel, 14-bit LUT and 6 Axis color adjustability, connectivity options, a frameless design and newly designed ergonomic stand, this monitor delivers color coverage and output performance. The VP2785-4K is ideal for MacBook work stations or environments that need reliable color representation and image performance that is compatible with Type-C connectivity and 4K content."

The ViewSonic VP2785-4K will be available in August 2017 for an MSRP of $1,200.00 (USD).

That price makes no sense. When will companies understand that with such prices on 4k monitors we might just get a TV? Weird

Yup, 32" for (well) under $1,000 is what I'm waiting for as well. Though in this case it may the gamut that drives the price up.
I'm not sure about its availability, but the LG 32UD99 manages all that and HDR10 for $999.

I'd guess it's the backlight, which they're probably exaggerating somewhat, and all the other features piling up. Having hardware calibration always drives up the price too.

As pro-line monitors go and for the feature set this doesn't seem horribly priced.

Yes, forgot about the hardware calibration, that never comes cheap. Though I wonder if professional actually trust that over a separate device that you can use on multiple monitors with repeatable results.

27-inch 4K...

Have fun squinting in 80% of all apps.

When will they understand that 4K only makes sense at 39-40 inch? No, seriously, I need to know...

My eyes put eagles to shame, hearing that puts rabbits to shame and reflexes that put cheetahs to shame. I know it's such a shame.
