Apple’s new monitor is the pro display XTR. It’s $5000 think about that $5000 for a computer model. Still, it’s got some pretty cool features. Let’s take a look at the XTR is intended not for your average PC user. It’s for hardcore users who need the absolute best display to get without spending tens of thousands of dollars on an actual studio reference display. The resolution of the protest by XTR is 6 K.
Yeah, that seems like a ton of pixels. It is, but that’s not the only advanced feature that the XTR displays half the idea behind. The Xterra display Apple says that you will be able to select from reference presets, so let’s say your editing HDR video, or you are working on a specific type of photo.
There were presets built into mac OS. They will let you adjust for different things the gamma white balance color space and the luminance brightness of the display. A couple of the various reference modes that will be available on the XTR include things like HDR video. If prince layout design and, of course, the toxic and you can select those three sets from within the mac OS system preference now the pro display, XTR is not just about advanced features for display this expensive.
You’re going to expect that apple gets the basics right. Some of the basics include an option for either a glossy display. Which we’ve got here for a match version of the Mac version is ideal for environments .where there’s lots of ambient light because the map to finish of the display helps not reflect that in delight as much apple’s take on the map displayed.
Constitutional $0 over the base model. You get a matte finish, and the apple will filter out those clears without actually adversely affecting picture for the pro display XTR does not come with the stand the Stamkos of $0 extra as well. Still, he does everything you’d expect to stand to do if you go down. Go up.
And once you get the display into the full upright position, you can unlock something on the back of the screen and rotate it. In mac, OS will automatically detect the orientation and switch it in the software. Now, of course, you know this is revolution other displays from other manufacturers like dell can do this too, but it’s nice to see the apples, including that for the immense amount of money that you’re going to spend.
You’re probably thinking about buying the produce play XTR with the apples’ latest desktop for mac pro if you do that you will get the same design aesthetic. It’s this cheese grater type finish. That has a pretty essential purpose because LEDs generate so much heat you need to have enough room for that heat to dissipate, and this cheese grater type grill serves that purpose pretty well. I’m touching top right now. It’s warm to the touch.
But it’s not hot, which is what we liked it this is an Apple device. So it’s exclusively available free there are there is one thunderbolt three input right here to connect your laptop or desktop. There are three additional ones that you can compare digital peripherals to. What we’ve got it set up here is a 16 inch MacBook pro connect the pro display XTR in the show itself is connected. To a power source right here, it’s charging the laptop through this single Thunderbolt port and providing the video signal and the bandwidth for connecting additional preference.
That we’re looking forward to testing out the protest by XTR to see if all these advanced features like reference modes translate into what apple says they’re supposed to do, unfortunately. We can’t quite do that yet because a lot of the software required that’s built-in that will be built into mac OS to enable these features isn’t ready.
Yet, most notably, what is missing right now from the settings is the ability to customize your parts of those references about, so let’s say you want to adjust the white balance independently of the other three modes. That will be coming in the future apple says, but currently, it is not available in Mac OS, so we’re looking forward to putting the pro display XTR through its paces once those updates are available.
Who is the pro display? XTR, for well, an obvious use case would be if you’re working for a small production studio in the article space. Maybe you want to add a reference-quality displays without spending the type of Hollywood type cash that you would typically need to do so.
But for everyone else, the pro display XTR is overkill overall for the proteas play XTR is an exciting new screen from apple, and we’re looking forward to testing it out check back soon for our full review.
