At this year’s CES, HP has showcased a hoard of new monitors. Amongst them are a 5K model and a virtual reality display.

The Zvr virtual reality display is a 23.6-inch monitor with full HD and a 3D screen that works in conjunction with 3D glasses. It also comes with a stylus that enables the user to move, rotate and manipulate objects on the screen.

It comes with four cameras mounted along the top to detect eye and head movement and HP is expecting it to be used in schools, by design studios and in engineering labs.

Along with two 4K panels (27-inch and 23.8-inch), HP unveiled the Z27q 5K monitor, which has a 5,120 x 2,880, 300-nit IPS screen, making it seven times the resolution of full HD.

The 5K monitor, along with the 4K models, supports over a billion colours and includes DislayPort, DVI, HDMI, Mini-DisplayPort, MHL and three USB 3.0 ports. The Z27q will be available from March. Pricing is yet to be confirmed.

As well as these, HP also unveiled new curved monitors, including the ENVY 34c and Pavilion 27c.

The HP ENVY 34c measure 34-inches, features a wide 21:9 aspect ratio, and supports 3440 x1440 ultra-high resolution. It will be available from April and will have an RRP of £749.99.
