Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next important specification of a Display is its Color Reproduction, which is defined by its color gamut specification.

Apart from giving you a truly world-class experience, it is also ideal for professional photographers who are interested in photo editing and color grading business.

Understanding the Color Gamut Specification

Color gamut spec of a display indicates the range of colors that the monitor can produce.

What this means is, it tells the ability of a monitor to produce accurate colors. A monitor with low color gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), so the image produced will look "washed out" in colors.

It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 etc. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.

For example, the color gamut of this Monitor is specified using DCI P3.

But you don't need to worry about that, here is a chart that you can use to choose a Monitor with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

Now, next in the list of important specifications that will impact your experience is Static Contrast.

Understanding the static contrast specification

A display with high enough static contrast ratio will produce natural deep blacks while a display with low contrast ratio (<1000:1) will produce images that will look dusty as shown below.

Example of a display with low contrast ratio

As you see, this will impact your experience considerably.

Also, a Display with high constrast ratio enables you to see more details. So, resolution and static contrast ratio go hand in hand in a sense.

This Display features a static contrast ratio of 3000 : 1, well enough to display deep blacks and eye-catching visuals.

DisplayHDR 400 is also supported on this Monitor, so that's a plus.
