HP has announced today that it is launching three new monitors, one of them using an IPS panel. The HP ZR30w makes use of an S-IPS panel to display 1.07 billion colors which covers the entire sRGB spectrum and 99% of the Adobe RGB spectrum. The monitor is a 30 inch model with a resolution of 2560x1600 and a 3000:1 dynamic contrast ratio.
