CES 2022 is well underway — virtually or otherwise — and, aside from new gaming equipment, Dell is reportedly set to deliver on a new camera-enabled 4K monitor aimed at ramping up productivity.

Dubbed the U3223QZ, the new 4K monitor announced by Dell isn’t just camera-enabled though. The camera itself, built directly into the frame, shoots in up to 4K at 30fps. Or at 1080p, for those who’d prefer 60fps captures. And it’s Windows Hello compatible too. So buyers can log into whatever Windows machine they hook this up to, and with just their face.

For specifications and ports, the 31.5-inch 4K, IPS monitor is DisplayHDR 400 certified, covering 98-percent of the DCI-P3 color gamut. And, according to Dell, the U3223QZ is the first monitor in its class to feature a 2,000:1 contrast ratio, via IPS Black technology. Meaning that the monitor will show darker shades at around double the contrast of traditional IPS panels. So it will display deep colors much much more closely to how OLED does.

For ports, there are both Display Port 1.4 and HDMI 2.0 ports available. In addition to no fewer than five USB-A ports and two USB-C ports. The former supports speeds of up to 10Gbps while one of the USB Type-C ports can handle 90W PD. The other supports up to 15W PD.

What other features are included in the new 4K productivity monitor from Dell?

Rather than simply shooting in a higher resolution for video chats, meetings, or recording, the 4K Dell U3223QZ monitor is also a great-looking device in terms of its other specs. The Stravis CMOS sensor from Sony features an adjustable field of view. Letting users choose between 65, 78, or 90-degrees of view.

That means that users don’t need to allow those they’re video chatting with to see more of their surroundings than is necessary. And that they can adjust just how much of their environment is visible, on the fly. When not in use, the feature also enables an automatic shutter feature. Which itself closes off the system’s access to the camera when there’s no video conferencing app open. Or, conversely, users can manually disable the camera with the built-in toggle.

It is worth noting, however, that this monitor will not be the best for gaming, unlike Dell’s other announcements for CES. The monitor will reportedly only support a refresh rate of 60Hz and won’t support FreeSync or other gaming technologies.

Pricing isn’t available just yet

Now, Dell hasn’t offered any insight into just how much this new monitor will cost when it officially goes on sale. But those details will become available as that timeframe approaches. As of this writing, the company expects to begin selling the display starting in March.
