The aforementioned color calibration is intended to deliver accurate reproduction across all color spaces including sRGB, EBU, SMPTE-C, Rec.709, and DICOM-SIM. The VP2771 also utilizes a 14-bit 3D LUT capable of generating up to 4.39 trillion colors. Additionally, an integrated color uniformity function claims to deliver consistent chromaticity across the screen. Lastly, users will be able to adjust six primary colors: red, green, blue, cyan, magenta, and yellow.
The VP2771 uses an IPS panel with a resolution of 2560x1440 and a 16:9 aspect ratio. The IPS panel is framed in ultra-thin bezels, making for a sleek multi-monitor setup. Perhaps another focal point of the VP2771 is the USB 3.1 Type-C input, now growing in popularity among most PC components USB 3.1-C supports video, audio, power draw and data. In its alternate mode, it can also carry DisplayPort signals. Other connectivity includes DisplayPort, mini DisplayPort, HDMI, and MHL 2.0.
The VP2771 also incorporates a Picture-by-Picture mode, permitting two different inputs to be displayed. Also built in are an ambient light sensor and KVM switch, the latter proving useful to users working across multiple machines. Rounding-out the notable ascribes are the 1000:1 contrast ratio and 5ms response time.
