* Calibration eliminates slight color performance variations between individual panels of the same model. Therefore, the calibration data of each report will vary slightly from reports from other displays of the same model.
Often problematic for designers working with intricate details in dark images, Animation mode enhances the brightness of dark areas without overexposing bright regions. Animation mode provides 10 levels of display brightness to bring out every subtlety clearly in any ambient lighting.
Adjusting image brightness and contrast for superb clarity and sharp details, Darkroom mode creates the optimal setting for work in darkened post-processing environments.
A Simple and Efficient Creative Process Made Possible
The common scene in a design studio is a workstation littered by multiple cords, used papers and all kinds of tools, making it impossible for most designers to remain productive while searching for inspiration. But it doesn't have to be like this. With a cable and several other thoughtful features, designers can now enjoy a whole new level of efficiency and productivity while trying to turn their creative ideas into realities.
Thunderbolt™ 3 Port: An Upgraded Design Experience with an Added Level of Efficiency
PD2720U is integrated with Thunderbolt™ 3 connectivity through the 2 USB-C™ ports, allowing designers to get daisy-chained up to two 4K monitors and enjoy a higher speed for data transmission. It tremendously boosts the productivity at every stage of workflow. By facilitating daisy-chaining through Thunderbolt™ 3, PD2720U lets designers to extend screens while ensuring the video, audio and data of the content are all properly extended, further enhancing the efficiency at work.
Improve your workflow and enhance productivity by switching on DualView to showcase designs in two modes (e.g. sRGB and CAD/CAM) side-by-side without the need for two screens.
Effortless Control for a Productive Design Process
Keyboard Video Mouse (KVM) Switch
The newly upgraded KVM Switch function allows users to control one set of keyboard and mouse between two different computers that use one or two screens, ensuring users can seamlessly switch between different computers to execute complicated design tasks while further boosting efficiencies at work. Designers can also enjoy the added level of efficiency that comes with KVM by activating the feature through PD2720U's embedded software, Display Pilot. With a few simple steps in Display Pilot, designers can instantly benefit from the elevated level of convenience that PD2720U offers.
Hotkey Puck G2
PD2720U is empowered by the newly designed hotkey puck G2 which allows designers to customize shortcuts to their preferred features through the upgraded OSD. The hotkey puck G2 leaves 3 single function keys as well as a rotation key to let users designate them to features that they require the most at work. Additionally, designers can adjust the brightness, contrast and volume of the monitor based on their preferences through the dial on the hotkey puck. To return to the previous level of the settings, designers can simply press the return key to instantly go back to the previous level.
Caring for Your Eyes
