HP Expands Creative Workflows with Z

PALO ALTO, CA — At Adobe MAX recently, HP Inc. announced its latest innovations to the HP Create Ecosystem to capture, create, and experience. HP continues evolving the Create Ecosystem, offering creators new remote solutions and the necessary tools to collaborate, accelerate workflows, and iterate, ensuing they can truly share their creations and work in real-time from any environment. 
Additionally, the next-generation Z by HP and DreamColor displays are reimagined with the creator in mind, providing seamless color accuracy, industry-leading performance, and an ultra-thin frameless design.

As creators work in new hybrid work environments, the need for the right technology and tools to keep them productive, connected, and collaborative has never been more essential. Eighty percent of companies are doing what they can to keep up with today’s new normal by accelerating the adoption of collaboration applications for workers. Even in a pandemic, the creative community never stops creating as consumers still crave the entertainment and the escape that artists, designers, and engineers bring to the world. The importance of enabling remote work forcreators will continue to increase, with 80% of creators reporting a desire to continue to work from home post- pandemic.

HP is expanding its HP Create Ecosystem vision, announced at Adobe MAX 2019, to include new projects, partnerships, and products that support the creative communities evolving workstyles.

HP ZCentral makes it easy for creators to take advantage of remote access to workstation power with Emmy-award winning ZCentral Remote Boost software. The real-time collaboration capability of this solution is a powerful tool for artists, designers, and engineers – enabling them to be productive and collaborate while at home, in the office, or working in a remote studio. Additionally, artists can now capture ideas, conceptualize, and work with remote teams using natural inking with the enhanced Wacom display and tablet4 experience.

NVIDIA Omniverse coupled with ZCentral, which supports multiple OS environments, provides artists and designers hardware flexibility. NVIDIA Omniverse enables designers, artists, and engineers to work in real-time across multiple programs to create and render 3D environments. Artists can work within their preferred 3D creation program like Substance by Adobe and contribute to a shared 3D scene at the same time within the Omniverse platform.

HP ZCentral and NVIDIA Omniverse advantages include: remote real-time collaboration and co-creation tools designed for 3D workflows, the ability to choose the end-point device and app with HP’s open multi-OS ecosystem (Windows, MacOS, Linux) and NVIDIA’s multi-application support, and seamless support for multi-display setups, 4K, and 60 FPS.

Now creatives can experience ideas in new ways by bringing them to life on Z displays specifically curated for creatives. On top of delivering over a billion on-screen colors to guarantee color accuracy out of the box, the new HP Z25xs G3 and Z27xs G3 DreamColor displays elevate and simplify creative workflows. Compatible with all devices and platforms, the dynamic new DreamColor monitors are designed to elevate the screen experience and simplify creative workflows. These are the world’s first color critical HDR monitors with one-touch brightness adjust, simplifying the creative’s workflow with the ability to increase screen lighting in a single movement.

The six new Z Core displays round out the next generation of premium displays – delivering flawless color accuracy out of the box and ultra-thin profiles. Meeting the need for expansive screen space and ultimate precision, these displays offer a frameless viewing experience with an 82% thinner design than the previous generation. In a survey of creatives, 83% said they use a notebook with USB-C as their primary computing devices, thus a desire for compatibility, with no limits connecting and powering a Mac or a PC. The new line-up comes in a range of sizes, up to 4K resolution, and offers complete compatibility across devices with 100W USB-C power delivery. For IT managers, Z displays come equipped with HP Display Manager, an end-point management solution for displays. HP Display Manager brings the ability to monitor, track, and adjust a fleet of displays remotely, extending the life of the display and saving energy.

With HP Eye Ease, the Z Core displays bring wellbeing to the workforce as the world’s first performance monitor series with always-on low-blue-light, keeping users performing in ultimate comfort with zero impact on color fidelity.
