It looks like HP is interested in joining rather exclusive club of companies, including Apple and Dell, that offer a 30-inch LCD flat panel display. For connectivity, the monitor, dubbed the LP3065, requires a DVD-D dual link graphics card, with support of up to 2560 by 1600 resolution. The stand allows for 178 x 178 degree viewing angles and possesses 3 additional DVD inputs and HDCP content protection. The display also possesses a unique, new CCFL back-light.
