Adobe rgb coverage is something I would like to have.


Tom,

The Monoprice monitor that you mentioned/linked above will not support full Adobe RGB coverage. According to the Monoprice description, that monitor "only supports Dual Link Digital DVI-D input."

I'm not an expert on color management, but I'm slowly working my way into learning/building a color-managed workflow, and here's what I've learned. Others with more expertise, please feel free to correct me if any of the following is inaccurate:

- The DVI interface only supports 8 bits per color channel (~16.7 million colors). The HDMI interface also only supports 8 bits per color channel. sRGB gamut is approx ~16.7 million colors.

- The DisplayPort interface supports 6, 8, 10, 12 or 16 bits per color channel. Full (or nearly so) Adobe RGB coverage is approx ~1.073 billion colors. So, 10 bits per color channel is required (~1.073 billion colors).


So, for full (or nearly so) Adobe RGB coverage, the software, graphics card, and monitor, must all support a 10 bit workflow. Effectively, you'll need both a graphics card and monitor with Displayport interfaces to support full AdobeRGB coverage.

Bit depth and gamut are completely unrelated.

Dell U2413 is a good choice.
