We are often inspired by creators who see the world in the widest range of colors. Emerging technologies and tools continue to provide content creators with more precise, accurate and consistent color experiences, maximizing their creative potential. A recent Dell-sponsored IDC research study1 further concluded that with the adoption of immersive technologies, it will necessitate more advanced monitors designed to support new emerging workloads like data-centric and design tasks. As the world’s number one monitor company2, we are relentless in our pursuit to help unleash creativity and maximize productivity for the ultimate visual experience.Today at Adobe MAX, Dell is excited to introduce the Dell UltraSharp 27 4K PremierColor Monitor (UP2720Q) – the world’s first 27-inch 4K monitor with a built-in colorimeter and ThunderboltTM 3 connectivity3 for content creators who require color-critical performance.Beginning in January 2020, photographers and still or motion picture editing professionals will be able to use this monitor to fully maximize the Adobe RGB color gamut and create brilliant content with precise color and amazing detail. The Dell UltraSharp 27 4K PremierColor Monitor offers 100% Adobe RGB, 98% DCI-P3 and 80% BT2020, providing a wide range of color reproduction across different color space standards. DCI-P3 is increasingly being adopted as a color standard on more devices like smartphones, web browsers and television due to the larger color gamut and higher color accuracy, leading to more content being developed in the DPC-P3 color gamut space.The built-in colorimeter helps users stay productive and get work done faster with quick and easy calibration – on-demand or scheduled after hours for consistent and optimized color performance every time. Users will also experience a more efficient workflow with a responsive built-in colorimeter that maintains consistency from production to delivery. The UltraSharp 27 4K PremierColor is a CalMAN® Ready monitor and works seamlessly with CalMAN® color calibration software (sold separately) to perform a variety of tasks, including calibration with a built-in or external colorimeter.Creative professionals will also appreciate the finer details that show up crisply with 4K Ultra HD resolution. The high contrast ratio and low dark luminance offer impressive contrasts and deep blacks. Any unwanted glare and reflection on the monitor from sunlight or overhead lights can be reduced using the easy-to-attach shading hood.This performance-packed monitor offers ThunderboltTM 3 with speed up to 40Gbps4 – the fastest5 and most versatile connectivity with two ThunderboltTM 3 ports, and can charge up to 90W to a connected notebook while simultaneously transferring video and data signals6. You can daisy chain up to two 4K monitors with ThunderboltTM for multitasking efficiency and increase your productivity by up to 21%7. Finally, the Picture-By-Picture (PBP) feature is ideal for comparing visual content side by side, allowing users to view the same image in different color spaces, or compare images from two different sources.The Dell UltraSharp 27 4K PremierColor Monitor will be available Jan. 15, 2020 worldwide starting at $1,999.99 USD.Be sure to stop by our booth at Adobe MAX, located at booth #901 to check out the monitor as well as other creative solutions from Dell Technologies!

(AP Photo/John Bazemore)PINEHURST, N.C. (AP) — Lucy Li’s friends back in California have been filling her inbox with emails.That’s the only way they can reach her at the U.S. Women’s Open.The 11-year-old is too young for a cellphone.“They’re like, ‘Oh, you’re famous now,’” she said, laughing.Li made quite an impression at Pinehurst No. 2 — even if she didn’t make it to the weekend. The youngest qualifier in the history of the tournament mostly held her own at the Women’s Open.For the second straight day, a couple of rough holes proved to be her undoing.Hurt by a double bogey and a triple bogey, Li shot her second straight 8-over 78.According to her caddie, this week was never about her score.“She was here for the experience and the opportunity to play with the best players in the world,” caddie Bryan Bush said. “She proved that she can.”Li was 22 strokes behind leader Michelle Wie and 19 behind Lexi Thompson, who both know about playing the Women’s Open at a young age.Wie’s first was in 2003 when she was 13. In 2007, Thompson became the youngest to qualify at age 12 — until Li supplanted her.“I hope she’s having a blast out there,” Wie said.All eyes were on the pre-teen from the Bay Area who showed a beyond-her-years knack for bouncing back from mistakes and rough holes.She bounced back from her roughest hole — the par-4 13th — with one of her best.Li’s tee shot on 13 landed in some thick weeds, and she missed the ball when she tried to punch it out. After a brief chat with USGA President Tom O’Toole, she took a drop and her shot from that rough ricocheted off the green and near the seating area.After she chipped to about 15 feet, she pushed that putt wide right and tapped in for her second triple bogey of the tournament.She came back strong: Li birdied the 14th — her favorite moment of the tournament — and closed her round with pars on three of her final four holes to match her opening-round score.“I’m really happy with how I bounced back from the big numbers,” Li said.Marlene Bauer’s place in tournament history as the youngest player to make the cut remained safe: She was 13 in 1947 in the second Women’s Open before going on to become one of the founders of the LPGA Tour.___THE CUT LINE: A couple of the LPGA Tour’s most recognizable names didn’t make it to the weekend.Cristie Kerr, who won the Women’s Open the last time it was held in the North Carolina sandhills in 2007, was at 10-over — missing the cut by one stroke.Cheyenne Woods — Tiger’s niece — had six bogeys during her 75 and was at 13-over. And Morgan Pressel was at 12-over following her 75.Two other players who began the day in danger of missing it used strong rounds to earn tee times on Saturday and Sunday.Defending champion Inbee Park, who shot an opening-round 76, had three birdies on the back nine of her 71 that moved her to 7-over.“It’s never too far back in the U.S. Open, I think,” Park said. “Anything is possible on this golf course.”Lydia Ko joined her at 7-over after two late birdies during her 71.___AMATEUR HOUR: Minjee Lee was a fan at last year’s Women’s Open, spending the week hanging around with her hero — fellow Australian Karrie Webb — at Sebonack in New York.“It’s like the best experience ever,” Lee said. “So yeah, it was good last year.”This one’s even better.Playing the Women’s Open for the first time, the amateur moved to 1 over after her second-round 71 that pushed her into a tie for third behind Michelle Wie and Lexi Thompson.Now, after spending most of her life looking up to Webb, now it’s Webb who’s looking up at her — on the leaderboard.“It is my first and I’m in contention,” Lee said. “So I can’t ask for anything more, really.”Said Webb: “Another Aussie flying the flag. So that’s good. She’s a great little player.”___OFFLINE: Na Yeon Choi doesn’t Google herself anymore.Not after the 2012 Women’s Open winner read all those news stories about her back home in South Korea while she pushed to become the world’s top-ranked player.“I read all the Internet news in Korea and sometimes that gave me a lot of pressure,” Choi said, adding that now, “I try not to search my name on the Internet.”After climbing to No. 2 in the world rankings last year, she said she “tried so hard to be No. 1, that gave me a lot of pressure.“Last year, when I go to a tournament, I only think about winning,” she added. “I can’t control the winning, but I think that all the pressure affected my game in a negative.”Choi came to Pinehurst at No. 15 in the current rankings and was 1 over through two rounds.___EARLY EXITS: Two players withdrew Friday.Jane Park withdrew midway through the second round with a back injury. She shot a 75 in the first round and had five bogeys and a double bogey in nine holes in the second round.That came a few hours after the USGA said Lizette Salas withdrew due to food poisoning. Salas had eight bogeys in an opening 78.___Follow Joedy McCreary on Twitter at http://twitter.com/joedyap
