ViewSonic has released the ViewSonic VP2768-4K, a 4K UltraHD (3,840 x 2,160) version of its well over a year old WQHD Monitors VP2768. Like its predecessor, the 27-inch (68cm) ViewSonic VP2768-4K is aimed at professional users: its factory color-calibrated IPS panel has a color accuracy of Delta E <2 and a slightly above-average brightness of 350 nits, a 14-bit 3D LUT function, a color depth of 12 bits (10-bit + FRC) and covers 100% of the sRGB color space and 99% of the Adobe RGB and REC709 color spaces.
HDR is supported by the HDR10 standard. The viewing angle is 178° (horizontal/vertical) standard. An integrated color uniformity function ensures consistent color display across the entire screen area. Optionally, it can also be easily color calibrated by hardware using the optional ViewSonic color calibration tool (CS-xRi1).

The display of the nearly borderless monitor can be adjusted 130mm n in height, tilted 21° forwards or 5° backwards, rotated 90° vertically (pivot) and tilted 120°. The interfaces include two HDMI 2.0, a DisplayPort 1.2, a Mini DisplayPort and a 4-port USB 3.0 hub.
The ViewSonic VP2768-4K costs about 150 dollars more in the USA than the WQHD version, which is available here from about 450 Euro - the RRP is still 715 Euro. The optional ViewSonic color calibration kit CS-xRi1 of the calibration specialist X-Rite costs about 280 dollars.
