ASUS Announces ProArt Display PA32UCX-P and PA27UCX
ASUS has announced their latest ProArt Display PA32UCX-P and PA27UCX, 4K HDR monitors for professional content creators. Featuring Off-Axis Contrast Optimisation (OCO) technology that maintains colour accuracy in wide-angle viewing and makes the monitors ideal collaboration tools.
ProArt Display PA32UCX-P and PA27UCX feature excellent colour and contrast with wide viewing angles. Most mini-LED monitors have colour accuracy issues when viewed from a wide angle, which presents a problem when collaborating with clients or colleagues on colour-critical work. The groundbreaking Off-Axis Contrast Optimisation (OCO) technology in PA32UCX-P and PA27UCX solves this problem with a compensation layer that controls light transmittance. OCO technology reduces the halo effect by 80% and provides a 7X contrast-ratio enhancement for dark colours when viewing the screen from a wide angle. Through OCO technology, the monitors ensure that on-screen content is displayed accurately to all viewers.
ProArt Display PA32UCX-P and PA27UCX feature ASUS Smart HDR technology, which supports multiple High Dynamic Range (HDR) formats and multiple PQ curves to suit needs specific to content creators. PA32UCX-P and PA27UCX both support Dolby Vision HDR, delivering ultravivid quality, incredible brightness, contrast, colour and detail to transform entertainment experiences and make storytelling come alive. Dolby Vision achieves astonishing image quality through cinema-inspired HDR technology that can deliver billions of colours. When compared to a standard picture, Dolby Vision ensures a brilliant picture with a full range of tones, including highlights that are up to 40X brighter and blacks that are 10X darker.
ProArt Display PA32UCX-P and PA27UCX support HDR10 and multiple PQ curves — including PQ Hard Clip, PQ Optimized and PQ Basic — to meet content creators' needs and ensure compatibility with existing streaming video services and a growing list of HDR-enabled games. HDR10 is also supported by the HDR Preview function, which enables video creators to connect their camera directly to ProArt PA32UCX-P and PA27UCX and view captured HDR content with its full tonal range. HDR Preview also automatically works in video editing software, enabling creators to view accurate simulations of final output for an easier and more streamlined editing experience.
ProArt Display PA32UCX-P offers true 10-bit colour depth with a 1200 cd/m2 peak brightness, and PA27UCX offers a 1000 cd/m2 peak brightness, providing an entire spectrum of colours to work with for video editing and post-production. Quantum-dot technology supports the cinema-standard DCI-P3 colour gamut, resulting in more realistic colours. PA32UCX-P delivers a wide colour gamut of 99% DCI-P3, 99.5% Adobe RGB, 89% Rec. 2020, 100% sRGB and Rec. 709, and PA27UCX provides 97% DCI-P3, 99.5% Adobe RGB, 83% Rec. 2020, 100% sRGB and Rec. 709. With professional-grade colour performance, both monitors are suited for high-end video editing and post-production.
ProArt Display PA32UCX-P and PA27UCX are pre-calibrated to guarantee an industry-leading Delta-E colour accuracy of less than one in the sRGB and Adobe RGB colour spaces. The monitors feature advanced grayscale technology to ensure images are accurately reproduced on screen. PA32UCX-P and PA27UCX also include technology to ensure 95% uniformity compensation to guard against brightness and chroma (colour) fluctuations across different parts of the screen.
ProArt Display PA32UCX-P and PA27UCX include ASUS ProArt software that supports top calibrators from X-Rite®, Datacolour®, Klein and others, as well as professional calibration software, such as Calman® and Light Illusion ColourSpace CMS. Users also can choose from a variety of advanced settings to achieve optimum colour accuracy, and can save colour parameter settings on the monitor’s integrated circuit (IC) chip to enable accurate, consistent colour across various connected devices.
ASUS ProArt Display PA32UCX-P and PA27UCX will be available from July 2020 in Australia. Pricing is is not set at this time.
