Ah CES, the time of year when a journalist’s eyes bleed there’s so much ‘news’ out there and you can’t help but wish your pockets were a bit deeper so you could afford all the new goodies being announced. One such company that’s showing off a lot of new gear is ASUS, which today debuted a new ProArt monitor called the PA328Q which features a 32 inch, 4K display and a nicely thin bezel.
Of course the size, shape and resolution are all important when buying a display, but the big selling point that ASUS is pushing with this one, is that it’s been “colour pre-calibrated,” to make it especially appealing to professionals like photographers, video producers and graphics professionals. As an ASUS spokesperson puts it, “the PA328Q is factory pre-calibrated to give industry-leading colour accuracy (∆E ≤ 2).” It is also able to display at colour profiles that are accurate for HDTV and sRGB.
In terms of connectivity, the display comes with DisplayPort 1.2 and mini-DisplayPort 1.2 connectors, two HDMI 1.4 ports and a single HDMI 2.0 port for 4K content support. It also comes equipped with four USB 3.0 ports to save you digging behind your PC for high-speed file transfers.
In terms of raw numbers, it has a refresh rate of 60Hz and has a native display resolution of 3840 x 2160 4K/UHD. It has a pixel density of 138ppi and a 178 degree viewing angle.
Additional features include flicker-free technology to prevent onscreen flickr and ASUS’ Eye Care technology to make it easier to read in darkened rooms and to reduce eye strain and fatigue.
Expected to release sometime in early 2015, UK pricing is set to be announced soon.
