The company also showed off new 4K gaming monitors, and an inexpensive monitor with a built-in webcam for easier video conferencing.
At CES 2021, electronics display company ViewSonic unveiled several new monitors for work-from-home setups, gaming and home entertainment .
Its most premium offering is its first 8K ColorPro monitor, the VP3286-8K, designed for photographers who need a high-quality workstation. The 32-inch monitor with native 8K resolution includes Adobe RGB 99% for a wide color gamut coverage, and a color-blind mode with advanced color adjustments. It will come with a small puck that acts as a calibration device, and a module that will act as a backlight for photo editing. It will also include a Thunderbolt 3, DisplayPort and a USB hub. The new ColorPro monitor is slated for summer 2021, with an estimated price tag of $5,000.
For those who want a solid home office monitor for working and video chatting but don't need all those bells and whistles, ViewSonic's new VG2440V monitor may be of interest: Arriving this month for $220, the 24-inch video conferencing monitor includes a built-in webcam and native 1080p resolution. The HD webcam is adjustable and includes a shutter for privacy, and an omni-directional microphone and dual 2W speaker stereos. Connectivity includes VGA, HDMI , DisplayPort, USB A/B and Audio-Out.
