Mini LED displays are on the rise: Lenovo is also showing a particularly bright monitor based on the new technology, which is to be established primarily in the professional segment thanks to its accurate color display.
The technical highlight of the screen is the backlight, which is implemented in the form of more than 10,000 mini LEDs, which can be dimmed in 1,152 zones and achieve a brightness of up to 1,000 nits, including support from VESA DisplayHDR 1000. In comparison to conventional LED displays, better contrast should be achieved through finer local dimming and more uniform illumination.
Lenovo does not save on the 4K panel either: the 27-inch IPS display offers a color depth of 10 bits and almost 99 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 color space. The sRGB color space and BT.709 are completely covered, the screen is calibrated to Delta E <1 ex works. As usual for this market, speed is not a priority: the Lenovo ThinkVision Creator Extreme only comes with 60 Hz and a response time of 14 ms.
Also announced today were the ThinkVision P27h-20, ThinkVision T24v-20, and ThinkVision T34w-20. These displays are connected either via DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0 or USB-C – the latter port is also used to directly connect the integrated USB hub with four ports (USB-A 3.1 Gen 1) and to load a connected notebook with up to 90 watts.
