ViewSonic has unveiled a wide array of monitors at this year’s virtual CES 2021 show. Among the new monitors is the company’s first 8K ColorPro monitor. The display has been designed for photographers demanding high resolution and wide color gamut coverage.

The new 32″ 8K ColorPro monitor, the VP3286-8K, has a native 8K resolution (7,680 x 4,320) and displays 99% of the Adobe RGB color space. Connectivity features include Thunderbolt 3 and DisplayPort plus a USB hub. The monitor has a color-blind mode, which includes advanced color adjustments for ‘improved color recognition.’ This color-bind mode allows the user to simulate color blindness, which ViewSonic states increases color recognition versus standard displays by up to 90%.

To ensure consistent, accurate colors, the monitor also comes with its own calibration device. CNet reports that the VP3286-8K has a module ‘that will act as a backlight for photo editing.’ It will be interesting to see how this module works when the monitor launches this summer with an estimated street price of $5,000 USD.
