It is being squarely aimed at creative professionals where color accuracy is paramount. Dell is also claiming that the UltraSharp 32″ has the widest DCI-P3 color coverage in a professional monitor at 99.8%. It is a true 10-bit display.

The monitor has a peak brightness of 1,000 nits which gives it VESA certified HDR 1000 support. It features an Ultra HD 4K (3840×2160) IPS panel and it has 140ppi.

It is also being touted as the world’s first 31.5-inch professional monitor with a built-in Calman Powered colorimeter which allows the monitor to do
its own scheduled calibration with or without having a computer attached.

The monitor also has a mode called Picture-by-Picture (PBP) that allows users to hook up two separate computers so you can display content from both simultaneously. You can even work on different color space for each input source.

The UltraSharp 32″ weighs 11.31 kg (24.93 lb). Once you add the stand assembly, hood, and cables the weight is 24.33 kg (53.62 lb).
