Lenovo has finally released the ThinkVision Creator Extreme 4K Mini LED monitor. Initially introduced back in CES 2020, the ThinkVision Creator Extreme is a monitor aimed at colourists, editors, and VFX specialists because of its high contrast and accurate colours.
Featuring a 27-inch IPS panel with a 4K resolution, the ThinkVision Creator Extreme has a 6ms response time (4ms in Extreme Mode) and a 60Hz refresh rate. Certified as a DisplayHDR 1000 monitor, the ThinkVision can reach a peak brightness of 1200 nits (620 nits of typical brightness), and features a contrast ratio of up to 1000000:1.
The backlighting has 1152 local dimming zones spread across 10,368 Mini LEDs. In terms of colour accuracy, this 10-bit panel covers 99% of the DCI-P3 wide colour gamut, 100% of the sRGB and BT.709 colour spectrums, and 78% of the BT.2020 colour gamut. To ensure colour accuracy out-of-the-box, the ThinkVision Creator Extreme comes factory-calibrated with a ΔE<1.
The Lenovo ThinkVision Creator Extreme features a USB-hub, bringing a USB-B 3.2 Gen1 upstream port, 4x USB-A 3.2 Gen1 downstream ports, and a USB-C 3.2 Gen1 downstream port with 100W of power delivery and DP alternative mode. For video and audio outputs, this monitor also features 2x DisplayPorts 1.4, 3x HDMI 2.0 ports, and a 3.5mm audio-out jack. The included stand is very ergonomic, allowing users to tilt (5º to 35º), swivel (±45º), pivot (±90º), and adjust the height by 135mm.
The Lenovo ThinkVision Creator Extreme is available now at Lenovo's website, priced at $2499/€2500.
