ASUS Launches the ProArt PA32UC

I’ve never had the chance to play with one of ASUS’s “Pro” monitors, but I’ve been really happy with my “decidedly not Pro” model (much more so than the Samsung that sits next to it, but that’s a story for a different day ;)). The ProArt PA32UC is a massive 32″ IPS panel that offers some pretty fantastic spec’s, and it should because it will run you $2,000.

— ASUS’ latest ProArt series monitor offers a 32-inch 4K UHD IPS display that delivers wide color-gamut technology for stunning HDR performance —
Fremont, CA (March 9, 2018) — ASUS today launched the ProArt™ PA32UC, a 32-inch 4K UHD IPS professional monitor with Thunderbolt™ 3 connection, an Ultra HD Premium™ certification, and delivers an extremely lifelike HDR experience along with high-end video editing capabilities. ProArt PA32UC also features advanced calibration technology that includes a 14-bit lookup table for color accuracy and 5 x 5 grid uniformity testing. Windows- and Mac OS-certified, every ProArt PA32UC is pre-calibrated to ensure color accuracy with a ∆E value below 2, providing ideal performance for graphic designers, photographers, or anyone looking for high color accuracy for content creation.
Extreme Contrast and High Color Fidelity

ProArt P32UC features a 32-inch 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) 138ppi panel that delivers extraordinary clarity with the finest details. With a wide color gamut, the monitor exceeds industry standards by achieving 85% Rec. 2020, 99.5% Adobe RGB, 95% DCI-P3 and 100% sRGB. ProArt P32UC features 14-bit color capability to display more than 1.07 billion colors. It also uses a 14-bit internal lookup table and supports Gamma values of 2.6, 2.4, 2.2, 2.0, and 1.8 to produce natural-looking images with smoother transitions between hues.

ProArt PA32UC monitors are pre-calibrated to guarantee industry-leading color accuracy with a ∆E value below 2. Each monitor comes with a report of calibration levels 63, 127 and 255, and features advanced gray-scale tracking technology to ensure your images are accurately reproduced onscreen. The monitor also includes technology to ensure 95% uniformity compensation to guard against brightness and chroma (color) fluctuations on different parts of across the screen.

Deepest Blacks, Brightest Whites

ProArt PA32UC has an Ultra HD Premium certification — the industry standard for HDR. Designed to enhance the contrast between the brightest and darkest parts of an image, HDR technology delivers exceptional onscreen clarity and detail. Featuring a full-array LED backlight with ASUS LED Driving technology, ProArt PA32UC has 384 LED zones and a peak brightness of 1,000cd/m2, so it can produce the deepest blacks and the brightest whites.

Thunderbolt 3: The USB-C that does it all

For unrivaled expandability and versatile, ultrafast connections, ProArt PA32UC offers two Thunderbolt™ 3 ports for data transfer speeds of up to 40Gbps, DisplayPort and USB 3.1 with power delivery for providing up to 60W of power to external devices. In addition, users can daisy-chain two 4K UHD monitors through a single port without the need for a hub or a switch.

ASUS ProArt Calibration Technology

Whether on a desktop or laptop, PC or Mac, ASUS ProArt Calibration Technology offers color accuracy tuning and uniformity compensation to make things easy when it’s time to recalibrate the display’s brightness and color consistency. Users can choose from a variety of advanced setups to achieve optimum color accuracy; get 3 x 3 and 5 x 5 uniformity compensation matrices to ensure consistent brightness; and save all color 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.

ASUS ProArt PA32UC is available now at B&H Photo Video at an MSRP of $1999.99 USD. Please contact your local ASUS representative for further information.
