The ASUS ProArt line of monitors has always carried a great reputation amongst creative professionals. As we head towards 2021, there is going to be a new ProArt monitor coming, this time with a QHD resolution, IPS panel and Calman verification.
According to DisplaySpecifications, the ProArt PA278CV monitor uses a 27-inch IPS panel with a QHD resolution, 5ms G2G response time, and a 75Hz refresh rate. The panel has an 8-bit colour depth and comes with a typical brightness of 350nits and a contrast ratio of 1000:1. This results in covering 100% of the sRGB and Rec. 709 colour spectrums, but it also supports the DCI-P3 wide colour gamut.
As a monitor aimed at creative professionals who need the highest colour accuracy possible from their displays, the PA278CV comes calibrated out-of-the-box. The Calman verified PA278CV has multiple colour presets available to use, but you can also freely customise the display colours to your liking with ProArt Palette, allowing you to adjust the colour hue, temperature, and gamma. Other features worth mentioning include the 6-axis colour adjustment, Color Temperature Selection, QuickFit, flicker-free and low-blue light mode technologies certified by TUV Rheinland, and Trace Free technology.
Connectivity options include an HDMI 1.4 port, 2x DisplayPorts 1.2 supporting daisy-chain, a USB-C upstream port with USB charging and DP alt. mode, a USB hub with 4x USB-A 3.1 downstream ports, and a 3.5mm audio-out jack. There are also 2x built-in 2W speakers. The included stand allows you to pivot, swivel, and tilt the monitor, as well as adjust its height. You can also easily mount it on a VESA monitor arm thanks to the screw-free attachment system that is also used to mount on the included stand.
Asus hasn’t shared details about the pricing and availability of this monitor yet.
