Dell today announced the release of its Dell 43 Multi-Client Monitor (P4317Q), the company’s first multi-client display designed specifically for financial institutions, trading floors and software developers. The Multi-Client Monitor is the latest example of Dell’s commitment to innovation, intentional design and meeting the needs of customers by offering users the opportunity to view up to four independent clients in a single view or easily switch between four independent systems in full-screen view.
Designed in conjunction with financial services customers, the Dell 43 Multi-Client Monitor gives traders a large, crisp viewing experience on a 43-inch (108 cm) screen that delivers Ultra HD 4K2 or four separate Full HD resolution screens without the interruption of bezels, as well as a matte finish that reduces glare and strain on eyes. This large, single-screen display allows traders to quickly focus on content from any one of the connected clients and zoom in to the full screen, and the Enhanced Dell Display Manager enables higher productivity through side-by-side or quad-screen viewing. Whether it’s a spreadsheet, a financial model or the latest stock performance, users are able to view and zoom in3 on the information they need in one place
While designed with financial services in mind, the Dell 43 Multi-Client Monitor is not just for traders and financial institutions. In fact, the P4317Q is also ideal for software developers to concurrently view development, test and production environments from different systems on one display. Developers demand multiple screens for source code reading, and with the P4317Q they can view multiple pages of source code on one screen to easily compare side-by-side. For instance, user interface (UI) development requires two monitors in order to debug.
“As the top monitor brand in the world for three years and in North America for 16 years running4, we want to show our commitment to our customers by teaming directly with those who would benefit most from this monitor, specifically financial traders and software developers,” said Bert Park, vice president and general manager, Dell Global Software and Peripherals. “The Dell 43 Multi-Client Monitor is a truly unique display that meets the diverse and dynamic needs of financial traders and software developers while also demonstrating ever-growing boundaries of innovation Dell is pushing.”
Further indication of Dell’s commitment to the needs of financial institutions is the single-power connection in addition to the RS232 connection that IT departments can use to enable simple remote management. These small but intentional details allow companies to lower total cost of ownership by reducing frequent monitor relocation and standardizing each desk set up in a trader’s environment. Further, the P4317Q replaces multiple monitors with a single display, reducing complexity for both IT and users.
The P4317Q also pairs with Dell Wyse thin and zero clients for secure, easy-to-manage, scalable desktop virtualization designed to keep sensitive financial data or IP in the data center, and make the most of valuable IT resources.
Importantly, the P4317Q was designed to be energy efficient. By replacing four monitors with a single display, the Dell 43 Multi-Client Monitor provides a 30 percent energy consumption savings. The P4317Q also features dual 8W speakers.
