Press Release

ASUS Announces PA328Q

Taipei, Taiwan (5th January, 2015) — ASUS today announced the ProArt Series PA328Q 4K/UHD (Ultra-high definition) color pre-calibrated monitor. Designed for photographers, video producers and graphics professionals, this 32-inch, 16:9 aspect ratio display has native 3840 x 2160 4K/UHD resolution, a pixel density of 138 pixels per inch (ppi), and a super narrow bezel design. PA328Q is factory pre-calibrated to give industry-leading color accuracy (∆E ≤ 2), and supports 100% sRGB color space, as well as Rec. 709 (HDTV) color space for video production. PA328Q has an ergonomic design and ASUS Eye Care technology, along with extensive connectivity options that include HDMI 2.0 and MHL 3.0 for viewing 4K/UHD content from mobile devices at 60Hz and 30Hz respectively.

 

Detailed 4K/UHD visuals on a large 32-inch display

PA328Q is a 32-inch display with a super-narrow bezel design. It delivers stunningly detailed 3840 x 2160 resolution visuals and has a pixel density of 138ppi — four times the pixel density of Full HD (1920 x 1080) displays. It has an in-plane switching panel with wide 178-degree viewing angles for minimal color shift even when viewed from extreme angles. 

 

Factory pre-calibrated for professional use

Designed for photographers, video producers and graphics professionals, PA328Q is factory pre-calibrated to give outstanding industry-leading color accuracy (∆E ≤ 2), with a wide color gamut of 100% sRGB and Rec. 709 color space support — the latter being the standard HDTV format for video production and editing.

PA328Q uses a 12-bit internal lookup table (LUT) and supports gamma values of 2.4, 2.2, and 1.8 to enhance color accuracy, smoother color gradations and a more natural transition between hues. PA328Q has a color uniformity ranging between 91-103%, solving common problems like fluctuations in brightness and chroma on different parts of the screen to give accurate and consistent onscreen colors.

 

Extensive connectivity with 4K/UHD support at up to 60Hz

PA328Q has extensive connectivity options that include DisplayPort 1.2, mini-DisplayPort 1.2, two HDMI 1.4 ports, and HDMI 2.0 / MHL 3.0 for true 4K/UHD content support at refresh rates of up to 60Hz1. Users can connect their MHL-compatible mobile device to the PA328Q for instant 4K/UHD content playback. PA328Q also has four USB 3.0 ports.

 

ASUS-exclusive technologies for increased user comfort and productivity

PA328Q features ASUS Eye Care Technology with TÜV Rheinland-certified Flicker-free technology which eliminates onscreen flicker to provide a more comfortable viewing experience.  PA328Q also has Low Blue Light technology which is the basis for the Reading and Darkroom modes in ASUS SplendidPlus Video Intelligence Technology; these modes effectively reduce the level of blue light to reduce eye strain and fatigue for users.

 

ASUS-exclusive QuickFit Virtual Scale, and Picture-by-picture & Picture-in-picture functions

In addition, ASUS QuickFit Virtual Scale allows users to preview actual-size photos and documents on screen prior to printing. Onscreen square grid overlays provide users with alignment, adding to the overall flexibility and productivity aspects of the PA328Q display.

There is also Picture-in-Picture (PiP) and Picture-by-Picture (PbP) support, with users being able to simultaneously view and switch  between multiple input sources easily. Users can configure how they want to view the various source windows; PiP mode lets users display content from a second input source in a window placed in one corner of the display, while PbP mode splits the screen down the middle.

 

Red Dot Award-winning ergonomic design

PA328Q is ergonomically-designed and has a full range of swivel, tilt, pivot and height adjustments to provide the user with an ideal viewing position. The PA328Q has a quick release stand and is VESA mount compatible for wall or stand mounting. PA328Q is a recipient of a 2014 Red Dot Award for its outstanding design.

 

AVAILABILITY & PRICING

ASUS PA328Q will be available from January 2015 in Taiwan, Asia Pacific, and Europe. Please contact ASUS Computer International (ACI) for availability in North America. Please contact your local ASUS representative for further information.
