ViewSonic has announced new monitors with specific kinds of support for accessibility in content creation. The OEM claims they come with color accuracy certified by Pantone out of the box, and also include color-blindness modes. These 24- and 27-inch displays are also equipped with a USB type C port that can support video, audio and charging.

ViewSonic has unveiled its ColorPro VP2468a and VP2768a (24- and 27-inch respectively) monitors. Their maker asserts that they are ready to deliver the Pantone color-standard credited with reliability in editing, assessing and viewing content, having been evaluated by the group in question for their ability to reproduce the full 2,161-color range of its Formula Guide.

These new ViewSonic peripherals also accomodate those affected by color blindness through 2 specific techniques: filtering and simluation. The first of these enhance on-screen detail for people with the condition, wheras the second allows creators to see how their work looks to those with the same.

The ColorPro VP68a series can also connect to a PC via a USB type C port that is also rated for up to 90 watt (W) charging for devices including smartphones or some laptops. However, the new monitors lack pricing and availability information at present. ViewSonic has also neglected to detail their resolutions or other pertinent specs thus far.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
