LaCie Displays Increase Gamut

David Schloss - Products Editor

Photographers are always looking for the most accurate color solutions possible. However, one of the most common parts of the color management chain often is the weakest—the monitor.

While LCD displays, now the norm in most photographic environments, are great in terms of sharpness, they don't have as wide a gamut (the range of reproducible colors) as do CRT displays.

LaCie's new 700-series displays offer 123-percent of the AdobeRGB spectrum, which means that they can display a wider range of colors than other monitors.

Available immediately in 20-inch, 24-inch and 30-inch (at $1599, $2299 and $4599 respectively) the displays all act as USB hubs and the two largest models have a 16:10 wide-screen aspect ratio. All three are available today

The latest addition to the PDN family, the PDN Gear Guide in print, has a total circulation of 30,000, and covers the latest and greatest in photographic equipment. Initially created in 2006 to be the official guide to PDN's annual flagship photography event, PDN PhotoPlus International Conference + Expo, the PDN Gear Guide is now also available online for gear news and updates 365 days a year.
