HP EliteDisplay Monitors: Enhancing Productivity for UK Creative Professionals

Jamie Finch
|
Computer display technology has advanced beyond recognition in the last few decades. The latest models offer graphics in far greater detail than their predecessors, and modern monitors come with features like ergonomic designs and multiple connectivity options.
With numerous features available, computer monitors come in designs that meet a wide range of needs, including those of creative professionals. This includes EliteDisplay monitors packed with tools that will help creative professionals work more comfortably and efficiently while achieving impressive results.

Key features of HP EliteDisplay monitors

HP EliteDisplay monitors typically offer numerous benefits over other displays that can help you work better and for longer. Some of these benefits include:

High-resolution displays

A feature that most monitors for digital art should have is a high resolution, which lets your monitor display highly detailed images. A display’s resolution is defined by how many individual pixels the screen uses, with more pixels offering enhanced detail. Another related feature is the aspect ratio, which is the display’s width-to-height ratio.
For example, the HP EliteDisplay E243i WUXGA monitor has a 24-inch display and widescreen ultra extended graphics array (WUXGA) display. Such displays differ from standard displays in that they are taller, giving more vertical screen space to work with. As such, this aspect ratio is ideal for people who use more than one app at once and might have a cluttered desktop with a standard aspect ratio. A WUXGA display is also a good choice for people who spend a lot of time browsing and reading from their display.

This monitor also features in-plane switching (IPS) technology. The benefits of this technology include accurate colour reproduction and screen visibility from wide angles. Wide-angle viewing is best for people who collaborate with others because it's easier for colleagues to see what you’re working on and provide feedback.
When considering a monitor’s resolution, you will also need to think about the computer's graphics processing unit (GPU) and central processing unit (CPU). These components, in particular, are essential for quality images, and a monitor can only display what your machine is capable of producing. Random access memory (RAM) also plays a large factor in what your machine is capable of, and solid-state drive storage (SSD) will help your machine work faster than traditional hard disk drive storage.
Another appealing feature of this display is the ability to divide your screen into sections, helping you work more efficiently. You can also mount a variety of HP computers directly onto the monitor, helping to prevent clutter.

Ergonomics and design

Monitors for graphic design should also have features that will help keep you comfortable and productive. You might otherwise become uncomfortable and struggle to focus on your work, while discomfort will tire you out faster. As such, it’s important to use a monitor and other components to help you stay comfortable, helping you work for longer and more effectively.
For example, the HP EliteDisplay E223 FHD IPS monitor lets you pivot, swivel and rotate your screen to get your monitor in the right position. Also, your HP EliteDisplay monitor will protect against eye strain thanks to anti-glare technology. Security features include dimming unauthorised displays to help protect valuable data.

This model offers a 21.5-inch FHD display and micro bezels that increase screen space while also making this model suitable for muti-display setups. This monitor also offers plenty of connectivity options, helping you connect to the internet and other devices. At 300 nits, this display offers the brightness that creative professionals need.

Connectivity options

Another key feature of HP EliteDisplay monitors is the variety of connectivity options available. Being able to connect devices will help improve your display’s functionality by integrating it with other devices. For example, having access to the right ports will let you use more than one display, potentially giving you a productivity boost.
The HP EliteDisplay E243d Full HD IPS USB-C Docking Monitor offers a range of ports that help keep you well connected, enhancing your productivity. These ports include a VGA, HDMI, DisplayPort™, and four USB 3.1 ports.

This machine is also ideal for use in busy offices because they are compatible with a range of mountable HP products. Mounting a computer directly onto your display will help keep your desk clutter-free, helping you work more efficiently, and compatible HP devices are designed to complement each other.
This display also comes with the HP Display Centre, making it easier for you to get your monitor just as you like it. For example, the platform lets you calibrate your screen to your requirements. You can also create and save presets for projects that require different settings.

Webcam and audio

Among the biggest benefits of the internet is communicating with others over very long distances. This ability means it’s no longer necessary to travel into town for a business meeting because modern conferencing tools can help you hold a meeting remotely.
The HP EliteDisplay E273m has a built-in High-Definition (HD) webcam that pops up at the rear of the screen at the top. This computer also includes a microphone and high-quality audio courtesy of dual Bang & Olufsen speakers. The 27-inch Full High-Definition (FHD) display ensures high-quality images, while IPS technology further enhances image quality and boosts your display’s visibility.

This display also comes with micro-edged bezels that offer sleek aesthetics while also making them ideal for use in multi-display setups. Four-way adjustable ergonomics help keep you comfortable, and you can switch between portrait or landscape orientation at the click of a button.

Ease of use

The best monitor for creative professionals will ideally be easy to use and ready whenever needed. This includes an easy set-up and an interface that makes for easy customisation. An easy-to-navigate display menu helps you find and adjust settings per your requirements, while plug-in and play technology means devices will work with your monitor with little or no set-up required.

Size

Size is one of the most important considerations when choosing any display. Many creatives prefer larger screens to see in greater detail, while large screens can also help make it easier to work with multiple apps at once.
On the other hand, a large screen will take up a lot of space, potentially causing clutter, meaning you will need to find the right balance between the two. You might also need to weigh up the pros and cons of various features because small displays can offer fewer features than their larger counterparts.

Customisability

What you need from your display will depend largely on the task at hand, and creatives tend to work on various projects. This means that you need access to easy customisation so you can adjust your display for optimal performance.
For example, the HP EliteDisplay range includes models that let you partition your screen, giving you multiple desktops to utilise. Other important customisability features include being able to adjust your screen so it is in a comfortable position for you.

Sustainability

As the climate crisis deepens, consumers are responding by expecting companies to use sustainable practices where possible. The HP EliteDisplay is designed with the conservation of our planet in mind by using sustainable materials where possible. This means you can get the computing power and high-quality images you need while doing your part for the environment.
Approximately 85% of the plastics in the EliteDisplay range are made from recycled materials. Not only that, but these monitors are also ENERGY STAR-certified, meaning they are energy efficient. This range is also Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT®) certified, giving assurance that this product is environmentally friendly.

Summary

With so many options to choose from, it can be difficult to find the best monitor for creative professionals. However, the HP EliteDisplay series is full of features ideal for creatives, making the models above a good place to start looking.
This range offers the high-quality images that creative professionals need, along with other features that help you work effectively and create stunning results. Not only that, but this range also offers a range of features that will help you work more comfortably and tap into your creativity.
Before you buy, it’s a good idea to define how you will use the monitor to ensure you get a model that works best for you. Not only that, but it’s also advisable to check your computer’s hardware to ensure you get the most from your machine. Checking the hardware requirements of the software you expect to use is a good way of ensuring you get the tools you need.
For example, if your computer has an advanced GPU and CPU, then a display with a higher resolution will help you get the most from that processing power. If remote working capabilities are important for you, then a model with a built-in webcam may be a priority.
