HP has introduced a set of specialty displays targeted at pros and consumers, including an interactive virtual reality display, 4K and 5K ultra high-definition displays and curved displays. The new 23.6-inch HP Zvr Virtual Reality Display lets users move, rotate and navigate 3D images from the interactive screen, giving creators of virtual-holographic 3D images more intuitive ways to work and design in real time. Built with HP's zSpace technology, one of the company's Blended Reality technologies, and featuring dual-link DVI and DisplayPort connections, the Zvr display can connect to collaborative PC workstations, including HP's Z line (reviewed recently here).
HP's new Ultra High-Definition (UHD) line includes the HP Z27s and HP Z24s 4K displays and the HP Z27q 5K Display, which all feature scalar technology and standard IO ports (DisplayPort, DVI, HDMI, Mini-DP, MHL(3) and USB 3.0) to easily connect multiple devices like a mobile phone, notebook and tablet and display their media all at once on the same screen. The 5K Z27q packs 14.7 million pixels and 1.07 billion colors onto the 16:9 screen. The display also features picture-in-picture and picture-by-picture options. Due out this spring, pricing for the displays is available upon request. The HP Z27s displays are expected this month starting at $749. The HP Z24s 4K displays are scheduled to ship in April for $549. The HP Z27q Display is expected to begin shipping in March around $1299.
The HP Z34c, HP Envy 34c, HP EliteDisplay S270c and HP Pavilion 27c curved displays come with a wide 178-degree field of view, a 3000:1 CR and a low-haze feature that reduces reflectiveness without losing sharpness and clarity. The Z34c's 34-inch (diagonally measured) screen has a 21:9 aspect ratio and 3440×1440 resolution.
The HP Z34c and HP Envy 34c are scheduled to ship in April for around $999. The HP EliteDisplay S270c and Pavilion 27c Curved Displays are available now for $399.
