Four monitors. One Display. That’s how Dell presents its new monitor, a 43 inch display designed to increase productivity for specialized users in a single array offering crisp text, graphs and colors.
Dell’s new monitor follows on the steps of the recently presented Philips BDM4350UC. Both monitors enter, when it comes to size, the realm of TV sets, offering working space that allows users to open multiple applications in a single panel. Or, as Dell suggests with this monitor, connect up to four independent clients to a single monitor with customized views, all without bezel breaks, so you can take total command of your tasks.
While this may not be your first choice for photography or video, this monitor points towards a direction we will probably see Dell explore more, also, on their offer for photography and video: massive displays. This unit, though, was designed in conjunction with financial services customers, to give traders a large, crisp viewing experience a 43-inch (108 cm) screen that delivers Ultra HD 4K (4K available when connected to single input, using all connectors except VGA. FHD available when using multiple inputs.) or four separate Full HD resolution screens without the interruption of bezels, as well as a matte finish that reduces glare and strain on eyes. The monitor was also conceived with software developers in mind, as they demand multiple screens for source code reading, something that the P4317Q can offer.
The P4317Q was designed to be energy efficient. By replacing four monitors with a single display, the Dell 43 Multi-Client Monitor provides a 30 percent energy consumption savings, according to Dell. The P4317Q also features dual 8W speakers andio input and headphone output. Priced at $1349.99, the P4317Q offers a 8ms G2G response time, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 350 cd/m2 brightness, 178/178 viewing angles, 1.06 billion colour depth and standard sRGB gamut W-LED backlight. In terms of connectivity options it offers 1 x DP 1.2, 1 x mDP 1.2, 2 x HDMI 1.4 (MHL), 1 x VGA, 1 x USB 3.0 port – Upstream, 4 x USB 3.0 port and 1 x RS232.
