The Dell UltraSharp 32 4K Conferencing Monitor – a rather long name but which has the merit of illustrating its key characteristics – that the American company had presented at the beginning of the year during the CES 2022 in Las Vegas. The display stands out for its integrated webcam – as well as for its mere presence also for its specifications, decidedly high-end and well above what is normally seen in laptops.
The camera has a Sony Starvis 4K sensor with HDR certification, automatic light sensitivity adjustment capabilities, artificial sharpening technologies, AI-based auto framing and much more. It is Microsoft Teams certified and has a hardware button to quickly silence during a call (plus of course a “kill switch” to disable it completely). Two echo-canceling microphones and integrated 14W speakers complete the equation.
The monitor itself is, as we said, a 16: 9 32 “ (31.5 “, to be exact) with resolution 4K. The panel IPS it is HDR400 certified and promises excellent color fidelity – 100% of the sRGB color space and 98% of the DCI-P3 color space. The refresh is only 60 Hz and the response time is 8 ms (GtG), but the rest is not a product designed for gamers. We also have an anti-reflective coating.
As for the ports, the monitor includes:
- HDMI (HDCP 2.2)
- DisplayPort 1.4 (HDCP 2.2)
- Integrated USB: 5x Type-A + 3x Type-C
- an upstream port with power delivery up to 90W and DisplayPort 1.4
- one downstream port with power delivery up to 15W
- a port with Battery Charging 1.2
- DisplayPort out (MST)
- 3.5mm jack for headphones
In short, it is a decidedly prestigious monitor for the corporate world, and the price of 1,599 dollars (for now we only know the details relating to the USA) further confirms this. Pre-orders are open immediately, deliveries will begin at the end of July.
