The panel is, of course, an IPS type with 1,000:1 native contrast and brightness of 350 cd/m² and response time is quoted as 14ms. When working in the sRGB, EBU, SMPTE-C, Rec. 709 colour spaces, a special uniformity function comes into operation to maintain consistent color and luminance across the screen. For editing of HDR content, the monitor can support HDR10 content.

Inputs are DisplayPort, mini-DisplayPort and HDMI 2.0 and there are three USB 3.1 Type A, one USB 3.1 Type B and one Type C. The monitor has 130mm of height adjustment and support for pivoting. The bezels are very slim which could be an advantage in multi-display installations.
