ViewSonic Announces 8K Color-Accurate Thunderbolt 3 Monitor

ViewSonic has announced a host of new monitors that span a range of use cases, with its new color-accurate 4K and 8K monitors of note as the company’s latest offerings for photographers. Called the ColorPro monitor series, the mix of high resolution and wide color gamut looks particularly enticing.

Starting at the top, the VP3286-8K is ViewSonic’s most premium option and is a 32-inch monitor with native 8K (7680×4320) resolution and will hit 99% of Adobe RGB. It will also offer multiple connectivity options including Thunderbolt 3, DisplayPort, and a USB hub. It ships with a small “puck” that can be used as a calibration device as well as a module that will act as a backlight for photo editing.

The VP3286-8K will retail for $5,000.

ViewSonic also announced three different 4K monitors, each slightly different and at three different prices. The most expensive of the batch is the $2,000 VP3286-4K, which is a 32-inch monitor with native 4K (3840×2160) resolution and 100% coverage of Adobe RGB. Just like the 8K version, it features Thunderbolt 3, DisplayPort, and a USB hub.

Priced at $1,000 is the 27-inch variant called the VP2786-4K, which maintains the same spec as the VP3286-4K except for the smaller physical size.

The lowest-tier is the $900 VP2776-4K which has the same port offerings and 27-inch size, but no specification for Adobe RGB coverage was given, instead stating that it can hit 100% of the DCI-P3 color space. ViewSonic’s press language specifically avoids using the term “wide color gamut” for this monitor.

If you don’t need 4K, the last monitor on the list is the Vp2776-2K, a 27-inch monitor with native 2K (2560×1440) and the same claim of 100% of the DCI-P3 color space as the VP2776-4K. While not offering as high of resolution or a wide color gamut, it is the most affordable at just $500.

The ColorPro monitors all feature a color-blind mode with advanced color adjustments for improved color recognition. These as well as the other batch of monitors ViewSonic announced today are slated for release this summer.
