Users can adjust the webcam’s settings to make it faster for face tracking. While you can’t move the webcam away from the display when you don’t need it, you can push it down to hide it from view. The Z24m also has dual noise-cancelling microphones and dual speakers, so simple calls do not require any additional peripherals. As for the display itself, the Z24m has an IPS panel with a resolution of 2560 x 1440, a 90Hz refresh rate, a 5ms response time, and support for HDR.
The monitor also supportsHPautomatic lock and wake up function. The feature uses a built-in proximity sensor to detect when the user is in front of the screen. If enabled, the display will automatically lock when the person walks away and turn on automatically when they come back.
It’s unclear what HP’s webcam tracking feature will do withappleWhich performs better than the Center Stage, because the latter uses machine learning to help people (and others in the same frame) stay centered on the screen. The 27-inch Studio Display comes withiPhone11’s A13 Bionic chip to help drive the center stage function of the 12-megapixel webcam, among other features. However, there are some issues with the webcam’s image quality – Apple has pushed a software update to fix the issue, but it’s still not fully fixed.
The Z24m is slated for a July release, and there isn’t any price information yet. HP is also releasing the Z24q this month for $347, and the two monitors have very similar specs, but the latter doesn’t have video conferencing capabilities. That compares to a whopping $1,599 for the Apple Studio Display.
