By Matthew, 23 July, 2014
ViewSonic have announced that their new VX2880ml 4K2K desktop monitor, or VDU, will be out before the end of July 2014. This was a VDU first unveiled at CES 2014, and boasts the highest resolution for desktop displays. Its 3840 x 2160 4K resolution is four times that of Full HD display alternatives.
This is a VDU that is ideal for CAD (Computer Aided Design) and 4K content development. ViewSonic’s senior product marketing manager stated, “As 4K content continues to emerge and entertainment and other demanding visual applications become more progressive, there is a compelling need for premium UHD resolution displays. To satisfy 4K content developers, graphic designers, CAD, and other advanced applications requiring an extreme high resolution, the VX2880ml 4K resolution display delivers the highest level of details in an affordable yet stunning form factor.”
The VX2880ml 4K2K has a variety of input options. It includes a couple of DisplayPort inputs, one DisplayPort output, Mini DP, MHL 2.0 and HDMI 1.4. With its DisplayPort output the VDU supports high-definition daisy chains. What that means is that you can daisy-chain multiple displays to the VX2880ml, which supports Full HD on up to four daisy-chained displays.
The VX2880ml has a Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL). As such, those with mobile and tablet devices can connect them to the VX2880ml display. Mobile and tablet content is then shown in Full HD, and connecting mobile devices to the VDU also charges their batteries.
This VDU has a variety of viewing modes to select from. The VX2880ml has up to five scenario presets in total. You can choose from Game, Text, Movie, Web and Mono that enhances black levels in game and movie content.
It has a 28-inch display that can simultaneously display a couple of inputs at once to enhance detail. In addition, the VX2880ml has a 100 x 100mm VESA-mountable design so that you can mount it on either a monitor stand or wall.
The VDU will be available in both the USA and UK. It will retail at about $831 in the USA, and in the UK will be more like £431. Yes, you heard correctly, that’s a 4K display at less than £500!
