Hands on: HP Dreamcolor LP2480zx LCD monitor

gadget zone has gotten their hands on HP's new mega monitor. Designed for creative types, it can display more than a million colours. As a gaming monitor, this could really be the bees knees. Shame about the price tag though. The monitor is a result of a collaboration between HP and animation studio Dream Works.

Pretty daft article that misses the point of the monitor entirely!

Also an error in this posting - it should say displays over a 'billion colours' not a million, all monitors do that!

I'm actually getting one of these, as its a dream for me! I'm currently doing some movie post production work, and movies display in 10 bit per pixel colour space (30bit), where PC's use 8 bits per pixel (24bit). So the only way to see the proper image you'd see on the big screen has been to use a CRT reference monitor to compliment your PC display, which is awkward and not a brilliant way of working.

The newer ATI FireGL pro cards are capable of 10 bit output over a diplayport connection, so I will be effectively able to master film work on the PC monitor with no guess work involved. Prior to this monitor, the other solution I found was a sony pro mastering LCD that costs about £15K or $30K, so you can see this will be a real boon to many digital artists who have a need to do film qulaity work on PC.
