Siloed systems tend to complicate interconnectivity and operations, which have ultimately led to a fragmented user experience.
The Super Device experience is designed to address this problem. It provides a common language for different kinds of devices to connect and collaborate, providing users with a more convenient, smooth, and secure experience. It uses distributed technology to meet the varied needs of all types of different devices with a single system, enabling flexible deployment as needed. It also combines previously independent devices into a cohesive and holistic Super Device that integrates all hardware and resources to freely leverage the capabilities of its component devices based on the user’s real-time needs.

The Ultimate Buying Guide for Creator Displays
For content creators, a high-quality display is indispensable. However, the challenge arises when it’s time to select one. To simplify this process, we’ve compiled a comprehensive guide to buying displays, which should assist you in making an informed decision.
As you sift through the myriad of display models on the market, you’ll undoubtedly come across a variety of specifications. Some of these are self-explanatory, while others necessitate a grasp of certain concepts. Let’s deep dive into the key features of a display.
Monitor size plays a significant role, with a broad range to choose from. Typically, a monitor for video editing should measure between 24 and 32 inches, with the sweet spot around 27 inches. This size allows for split-screen editing while maintaining overall screen focus.
Monitors smaller than 24 inches are generally designed for laptops, while those larger than 32 inches are primarily suitable for movie viewing or playback. However, as the display size increases, so does the need for higher resolution to maintain quality.
Monitor resolution is a frequently debated topic, and if you’re considering a career in photography, video editing, or content creation, a 4K monitor is a minimum requirement. Given that most contemporary cameras capture in 4K or higher, investing in a 4K monitor enhances your viewing experience. This also ensures that you’re prepared for the future, as camera technology continues to improve annually.
Typically, a monitor with a high refresh rate is likely to have a lower resolution. Monitors with high refresh rates are ideal for gamers who prioritize high frame rates over high resolution, a preference that doesn’t apply to video editing.
Such monitors can reach up to 144Hz, which is somewhat excessive for video editing. In this context, 60Hz is perfectly adequate and even favoured by some gamers. This is particularly relevant considering that most projects are edited in the 24-30fps range, which corresponds to approximately 24-30Hz.
For those involved in creative work, having a monitor that can display a wide range of colours is crucial, and this is where 10-bit technology comes into play. Although 8-bit monitors may be adequate, they fall short when it comes to colour grading.
This is because an 8-bit monitor can display 16.7 million colours, while a 10-bit monitor can display a staggering 1.07 billion colours. Moreover, most professional cameras used by videographers and photographers nowadays shoot in at least 10-bit. Therefore, to fully utilise your camera’s capabilities, ensure that your monitor isn’t limiting you to viewing only a small portion of what your camera can produce.
The contrast ratio is a specification that is frequently disregarded, yet it’s crucial to examine. A standard contrast ratio of 1000:1 on a monitor implies that a pixel can be 1000 times brighter than its darkest state. It represents the luminance difference between the deepest black and the brightest white. As a rule of thumb, aim for monitors with a contrast ratio ranging from 1000:1 to 3000:1 to avoid being misled by marketing tactics. Generally, a higher contrast ratio equates to superior image quality.
This guide to buying monitors provides all the necessary information for making an informed choice. It’s essential to consider your specific needs and select a monitor that will contribute positively to your work. Here then are some of the best displays in the market for content creators.
