HP is readying a monitor for video post production work that has "one billion colors."  The new technology was announced at the NAB show in Las Vegas last week by HP and partner DreamWorks.  DreamWorks will be using the new monitor in animation post-production.

DreamWorks and HP have had a long association in implementing advanced technology for animation production.

But the technology is not just for the professional post-production video production suite, it will be implemented across HP’s consumer and business monitor lines, Computerworld reports.

Beet.TV caught up with HP’s Jeff Wood at the HP booth for this explanation.  The new monitor was not on display at show, just the announcement of its upcoming introduction which is expected this summer.
