The ASUS ProArt series of monitors has always had a fantastic reputation for quality. This year, ASUS is releasing an ultra-wide version, packing a 3440×1440 34-inch display, HDR-10 and industry-leading colour accuracy.
The ASUS ProArt PA34VC is a professional monitor. The panel is IPS and offers the popular 3440×1440 21:9 resolution, giving you plenty of space to work on one screen. The monitor has a 1900R curvature for better field of view. Each ProArt monitor is pre-calibrated at the factory with 100% sRGB coverage. According to Asus, this provides industry leading colour accuracy and consistency.
Other features include two Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports in addition to DisplayPort. Picture-in-Picture and Picture-By-Picture modes will allow you to display multiple sources at once.
Aside from calibrating each monitor, the PS34VC also comes with 95% uniformity compensation to guard against brightness or colour fluctuations on different parts of the screen. Users can choose from a variety of advanced setups to achieve optimum colour accuracy, including 3×3 and 5×5 uniformity compensation matrices to ensure consistent brightness, and save all colour parameter profiles on the monitor’s internal scaler integrated circuit chip. ASUS ProArt is also compatible with major hardware calibrators such as X-Rite i1 Display Pro and Datacolor Spyder 5 series.
The ASUS ProArt PA34VC will be available from April onward. At the time of writing, we are still waiting on pricing confirmation.
KitGuru Says: The ProArt monitors have always delivered on quality. It will be interesting to see how the ultrawide version stacks up.
