What is mini-LED technology?
We have been talking about the mini-LED technology, for many the next great revolution in the sector of the manufacture of screens and it may be so. Because this new way of manufacturing panels brings together the advantages of current LED panels and also those of OLEDs. Of course, before you go ahead and see the new Dell monitor, you need to know what it really is.
The mini-LED technology, as you can imagine, makes use of LED diodes that are five times more dreams than the current ones. If a conventional LED panel uses diodes with a size of 1,000 microns, mini-LEDs make the leap to 200 micron diodes. And be careful, because then there are the micro-LEDs that will allow you to go down to 100 microns, but for now we focus on the first.
Thanks to this size reduction five times more points of light fit on the same surface. Therefore, on screen Full Array Local Dimming the management of the different lighting zones is much more precise than what we had until now. Thus approaching OLED, where each pixel is really a light emitter.
So what are the direct benefits of such technology? Well to start a higher contrast and dynamic range with more intense and darker colors. Therefore, we would also have blacks that would be closer to that quality that OLED offers and that, despite its disadvantages, is still so desired by many image connoisseurs.
Dell UltraSharp 32 HDR PremiereColor
Now that you know roughly what mini-LED technology consists of, the new Dell monitor, the UP3221Q or UltraSharp 32 HDR PremiereColor. This 32-inch diagonal screen is the first to offer this type of panel when it comes to computer monitors and has 2,000 backlit zones that can be managed independently.
Thus, along with 99.8% of the DCI-P3 color space and 93% of that of Adobe RGB, the most outstanding thing next to that quality in the image colorimetry is the high gloss level that is capable of reaching. Some values that allow you to obtain compatibility DisplayHDR 1000, or what is the same, reaches 1,000 cd / m2.
In addition, to obtain a more accurate image, it also has a built-in Calman calorimeter as well as several ports, as has become tradition on the manufacturer’s screens. So that you can not only connect other video sources and even take advantage of functions such as Picture in Poctire, you also enjoy HUB-like devices that are then connected to the computer through a single cable.
As you can see, at a technological level it is frankly striking and surely it is already part of the top of monitors for demanding users. The only “problem” is that like any other technology that lands on the market for the first time, its price is not economical.
This mini-LED panel, multi-connection 4K resolution display from Dell has a price of 4,499 euros And it will be on sale November 5. Now the question is whether at a quality level it is at the same level or higher than the Apple Pro Display XDR, one of the most advanced monitors on the market. Yes, the one whose base only costs 999 euros.
