Whether we’re in the office or at home, productivity has become a precious commodity for workers. For some of us, the challenge is staying focused amid a million daily distractions. For others, it’s simply finding ways to optimize our performance as much as possible. But across the board, it’s clear that having the right technology has become an essential component of a productive workday.
Studies have shown that the monitor(s) workers use can play a key role in enhancing productivity. That’s why Dell is focused on designing monitors that solve productivity and performance challenges. Now, we’re excited to announce the expansion of our innovative Dell UltraSharp line of monitors to better meet the needs of users in color-critical professions and professionals who work simultaneously with multiple applications.
Dell UltraSharp 30 Monitor with PremierColor (UP3017)
As anyone who’s worked in a visual field knows, small changes to color can immensely change the mood, tone, accuracy and even professional credibility of videos and images. That’s why it’s crucial that users responsible for setting those color levels be presented with a crisp, color-accurate image as they design or edit.
The Dell UltraSharp 30 Monitor with PremierColor (UP3017), the newest addition to an impressive lineup of Dell UltraSharp Monitors with PremierColor that address a wide range of color-critical needs, takes this commitment to color a step further than its same-sized predecessor (U3014) with 99 percent coverage achievement across four professional color spaces – AdobeRGB, sRGB, REC 709 and DCI-P3. These last two color spaces are of key importance to animation designers and video editors when ensuring color accuracy during post-production work.
Perhaps one of the most exciting enhancements is the ability for users to fine-tune their colors using Custom Color mode or calibrate the monitor in-house using Dell UltraSharp Color Calibration Solution software with the optional colorimeter (sold separately). With the software development kit, you can tweak your color parameters according to your proprietary color solution.
This new monitor also addresses another key need of professionals in color-critical fields – the ability to adjust and rotate the monitor to suit their current viewing needs. While our original 30-inch model offered a wide range of adjustability, the new release offers even more options, including the ability to rotate the monitor panel clockwise or counter-clockwise to view the entire screen in portrait orientation, a greater height adjustability range and wider forward and backward tilting angles. Users will have the flexibility to adjust the screen to suit them, rather than the other way around.
And since we know that dual monitors can enhance productivity, we’ve made it easier to view dual content in two ways. First, users can connect two PCs to the same UP3017 monitor in order to view and interact with content from each source side-by-side or as picture-in-picture, using a single mouse and keyboard. Secondly, users can daisy chain two monitors to replicate or extend content across both monitors, without requiring both to be connected to the source. Both of these options offer significant productivity enhancements for editors and designers who can save a great deal of time and energy by viewing multiple source files simultaneously.
Dell UltraSharp 34 Curved Monitor (U3417W)
For users looking for productivity enablers that minimize distractions and help them stay focused on a singular task, we’ve created an even more immersive and comfortable viewing experience with the Dell UltraSharp 34 Curved Monitor (U3417W).
The U3417W model builds on the innovations we’ve introduced with our line of curved monitors by providing an increased screen curvature. It takes the benefits of curved, ultra-wide screens even further by better optimizing users’ field of view, while continuing to minimize reflection and offering near-uniform visual focus. It also optimizes eye comfort with a flicker-free viewing experience, ComfortView which minimizes blue light emissions, and less head-turning needed to see the entire image on screen, all of which can be significant benefits for users who view the monitor for hours on end. This has obvious applications for not only workers but gamers and those using the immersive viewing experience for home entertainment. It’s also ideal for executives and discerning professionals who work with multiple applications or files at the same time.
The new release offers this increased curvature on top of the same impressive specs, including powerful dual 9W speakers and Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture features, offered by the U3415W. PC Mag named the U3415W its top pick for ultra-wide monitors, while TechRadar Pro called it “the ideal replacement for dual-monitor setups.”
Of course, both monitors build upon the already-solid foundation of the preceding Dell UltraSharp products, including precise, accurate colors right out of the box, and crisp, high-contrast images. And our Premium Panel Guarantee and Advanced Exchange Service provide the reliability our customers have come to expect.
The same philosophy that has made us a successful PC brand for over 30 years has made us the world’s number one monitor brand for three years and in North America for 16 years. We listen to our partners and customers and provide practical innovation based on real needs. Whether you’re a worker in a color-critical field, a multi-task-oriented professional or both, let us know how these new monitors are affecting your workday. We look forward to working with you to continue meeting pressing needs as Dell technology and the workplace evolve together.
