Lenovo announced four new ThinkVision monitors today at CES, and one of them is aimed squarely at professional creators.
The ThinkVision Creator Extreme is Lenovo’s newest high-end monitor. The Creator Extreme features a 27-inch 4K IPS panel that is HDR1000 certified. The panel has a mini-LED backlight with 1152 dimming zones and an overall peak brightness of 1000 nits. Professionals will appreciate the wide color coverage of the Creator Extreme; the monitor covers 99% of the DCI-P3 gamut as well as 100% of both the sRGB and BT.709 gamuts. The Creator Extreme’s panel has a standard 60 Hz refresh rate with a 14 ms response time. Port selection is varied, including one USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C port with DisplayPort 1.4 support, two HDMI 2.0 ports, one full-sized DisplayPort 1.4, one 3.5 mm audio jack, and four USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports. The monitor has relatively thin bezels on the left, right, and top, and it measures 245 x 462.4 x 808.6 mm (9.65 x 18.21 x 31.84 in).
Also announced today were the ThinkVision P27h-20, ThinkVision T24v-20, and ThinkVision T34w-20.

The QHD monitor has an overall brightness of 350 nits and measures 24.08 x 1.79 x 14.5 in, giving it plenty of space for its Ethernet, HDMI, DisplayPort, USB hub, and 3.5 mm audio jack.
The T24v-20 is a smaller, 23.8-inch FHD IPS panel with a brightness of 250 nits. It covers 72% of the NTSC color space, which is adequate for most general consumers.
