ViewSonic introduces the VP2468 as a monitor with professional level colour precision for colour-critical applications along with ergonomic features including tilt, swivel, height adjustments and more.
The resolution of the 24 inch VP2468, at 1920×1080, may seem too humble for many users and uses, but the truth is that it was not so long ago we would accept this as the norm. While it may not be enough for many people, it is still one monitor to look at if you need an alternative or a second monitor.
I ‘ve used a 30 inch 2560×1600 since 2007, first the HP LP3065, which was unique when launched, with three dual-link DVI ports and built-in USB hub with four ports, and a Dell UltraSharp U3011 after the HP stopped working. I would not dream of going to a monitor with lower resolution and dimensions on normal conditions, but the VP2468, which has a weight of 5.7kg (12.5 lbs), is a good option if you need to take your editing work with you. Besides, it can be used as a second monitor, alongside your main monitor. That’s something I would consider.
The ViewSonic VP2468 is also a good first monitor if you don’t want to spend much money and accept that all you need is a 24 inch Full HD 1080p (1920×1080) monitor. On the other hand you get a monitor that offers professional level colour precision for colour-critical applications, something that seems to be the aim of ViewSonic with this unit. Built with an edge-to-edge SuperClear IPS panel, the ViewSonic VP2468 design features one of the world’s thinnest bezels for a frameless viewing experience.
ViewSonic says its software, which was co-developed with colour management experts X-Rite, offers hardware calibration functionalities which help align graphics card and monitor scalar to ensure long-term consistency and accuracy of colour output. With hue and saturation fine tuning as well as five gamma settings, the VP2468 allows content to stand out with true-to-life colours. The sleek and frameless design is ideal for multiple monitor set-ups, which makes it the perfect choice for photography enthusiasts, graphic artists, content and development designers and other creative professionals.
For precise and uniform colour, each VP2468 is factory calibrated to a Delta E≤2 value for superior accuracy of all the pre-set colour spaces, including sRGB, EBU, SMPTE-C, REC709 and DICOM mode, so whether you’re a photographer shooting in sRGB, or a video editor in need of REC 709/SMPT-C/EBU standards, the monitor can deliver the accuracy you need to complete your best work.
The VP2468 is engineered with an integrated colour uniformity function that ensures consistent chromaticity across the entire screen, while a 14-bit 3D look-up table generates a palette of 4.39 trillion colours for astoundingly precise and exact image reproduction. A six-axis colour enhancement function allows users to individually adjust six different colours: red; green; blue; cyan; magenta and yellow.
“Whether you are a digital artist, a photography enthusiast or a content developer, true-to-life colours on a monitor are essential,” said Claire Chuang, LCD Business Line Manager at ViewSonic Europe Ltd. “The VP2468 features an edge-to-edge SuperClear IPS panel and offers super-wide viewing angles to ensure content on the screen can be seen from any viewpoint. With one of the world’s thinnest bezels, users can easily hook up multiple monitors for a more immersive viewing experience.”
ViewSonic’s VP2468 is equipped with future-proof DisplayPort (1x in, 1x out) technology, Mini DisplayPort, dual HDMI inputs, and four USB 3.0 ports for maximum flexibility and connectivity to a variety of devices and peripherals. The DisplayPort interface provides multi-stream technology that allows the daisy-chaining of multiple monitors with a single cable.
In addition, the VP2468 comes with ergonomic features including tilt, swivel, height adjustments and auto pivot with built-in G sensor that allows the screen image to pivot automatically when positioned vertically. The ViewSonic VP2468 is available for $269.99.
