Dell has unveiled its first “UHD Premium” certified monitor (UP2718Q), meaning that it can reproduce HDR more faithfully than the first batch of HDR monitors. The company will also release two monitors compatible with “Dell HDR”.

”UHD Premium“ monitor

Dell has been on a roll lately with the first OLED PC monitor for the consumer market, the first 8K PC monitor, and now the new UP2718Q “UHD Premium” certified monitor.

UP2718Q is a 27-inch monitor with 4K resolution and support for the HDR10 format. It is one of the first monitors to receive the UHD Alliance’s “UHD Premium” certification, meaning that it achieves at least 1000 nits and covers a good portion of the DCI-P3 color space.

- "As the No. 1 monitor brand in the world, we deliver the latest, most innovative display technology to our customers to meet and exceed their expectations, whether that's at work or at home," said Bert Park, senior vice president and general manager, Dell Software & Peripherals. "At NAB 2017, we're proud to continue Dell's tradition of world-class innovation – our first HDR monitor that meets HDR10 standard – by providing creators with the most strikingly accurate images and lifelike, unparalleled color performance."

Dell adds that UP2718Q has been created with creative professionals working with video. It covers 100% AdobeRGB, 100% sRGB, 100% Rec.709, 97.7% DCI-P3, and 76.9% Rec.2020. Each monitor is factory-calibrated.


Monitors with ”Dell HDR”

The company will also release two 25 and 27” monitors with “Dell HDR”, which a little ironically given the name, conforms to much lower standards than UP2718Q.

- ”Dell's HDR feature has been designed with a PC user in mind and supports specifications that are different from existing TV standards for HDR. Please review the specs carefully for further details,” the company said.

We saw a third model with “Dell HDR” at CES 2017 and it appears that the company is using standard LCD panels with added support on HDR10 on top. However, as you may know HDR requires specific and powerful hardware.

The 27” 4K U2718Q and 25” U2518D will both feature an ‘InfinityEdge’ design

Pricing and availability:
  • Dell UP2718Q will be available May 23 on Dell.com in the U.S. for $1,999.99.
