Color that keeps up with whatever you dream up

The optional HP DreamColor display on the EliteBook 8730w Mobile Workstation helps ensure the color you see on your screen is as consistent and true to the original image as possible. Its 24-bit color depth supports millions of active colors. 

DreamColor helps you achieve the exact color you need with breakthrough color control features. The tri-color LED backlight allows unprecedented color fidelity. Its support for the NTSC color gamut (CIE 1972) means you can fine-tune your colors precisely.

You won’t miss a thing on a screen where the nit luminance is brighter and the contrast ratio higher than many traditional notebook displays.

Further, DreamColor technology delivers the color you want and expect every time and across products and technologies. This means the color you see on your notebook PC is consistent with the printed image you present to your customer.

Customize your color space with adjustments for luminance, gamma, gamut and white point. Achieve completely accurate sRGB and Adobe RGB color spaces with the easy-to-use HP Mobile Display Assistant application. The integrated color sensor automatically calibrates to maintain accurate white point.

So, whether you’re presenting to hundreds of conference attendees or printing hundreds of color copies, with DreamColor technology you won’t be surprised by color variations.

See the world in a whole new light

With top performance, advanced graphics and impressive display options, you can’t help but brighten your world with an HP EliteBook 8000 Series notebook or workstation system. Get one and become the envy of the conference room – or wherever your work takes you!
