Lenovo has announced a new widescreen monitor that's sure to be a hit with video editors and image manipulation professionals who spend long hours in front of a computer screen. The 30-inch, 2560 x 1600 resolution ThinkVision LT3053p Wide Professional Monitor offers users life-like image rendering thanks to a 1.07 billion color depth and support for 99 percent of Adobe's RGB color gamut (as well as 100 percent of the sRGB color space).

Advanced High Performance In-Plane Switching (AH-IPS) technology assures a wide viewing angle for the LED backlit LCD monitor's 25.24 x 15.77-inch (641.28 x 400.8-mm) viewable area. It benefits from 14-bit internal processing and 14-bit LUT (for color calibration), and picture-in-picture and picture-by-picture functionality helps to negate the need for a second monitor in multitasking situations.

Onscreen clarity gets a boost from 350 cd/m2 brightness and a 3 million-to-1 dynamic contrast ratio, but a pro shading hood is provided to help reduce interference from ambient light sources.

In addition to VGA, dual-link DVI-D, HDMI 1.4, DisplayPort, Mobile HD Link (MHL) connections, the monitor also sports two USB 2.0 and three USB 3.0 ports, including one that doubles as a battery charging port. It also allows for seamless switching between two connected computer systems, and supports daisy chaining, should there be enough room in your workspace for more than one of these monsters.

The ThinkVision LT3053p is currently shown as available from April 16 for US$1,599.

"Onscreen clarity gets a boost from 350 cd/m2 brightness"? For anyone hoping to make photographic prints using this monitor 350 cd/m2 would not be a advantage! For photographic printing the luminance must match that of the paper being used, which is somewhere between 100 and 120 cd/m2. I would guess that this monitor can be calibrated to this setting, however it would be nice if the writer understood this fact and did not give the impression that more brightness is a good thing in all situations.
