The manufacturer Asus has unveiled its first 32-inch Oled Ultra HD monitor, the ProArt PA32DC. Intended for image professionals, it incorporates a calibration probe ensuring constant color fidelity.
The Asus ProArt PA32DC is the second Oled monitor from the Taiwanese manufacturer. The first was the ProArt PQ22UC, a 22-inch Ultra HD model marketed for around € 5,000 in 2019 and still on sale for around € 4,000. With its 31.5-inch diagonal and its Ultra HD definition of 3840 x 2160 px, the new Asus ProArt PA32DC is much more versatile and can clearly replace a work monitor, which was not really the case with the 22-inch model. . This Asus monitor uses the same Oled panel as the LG UltraFine 32EP950. This 10-bit Oled panel, manufactured by Japan-Oled (JOLED), offers different characteristics to the Oled panels found on televisions. If its peak brightness is limited to 550 cd / m², while televisions can go beyond 750 cd / m², it nevertheless manages to maintain a brightness of 250 cd / m² over the entire panel. being blocked at around 150 cd / m². Only the Alienware AW5520QF monitor is based on an Oled TV panel, while newer small-sized TVs like the LG 48CX and 48C1, with their FreeSync and G-Sync compatibility and their 48-inch Oled panel, are sometimes used as monitors. .
Oled technology requires, the contrast is considered infinite with total black managed pixel by pixel, the screen also offering a response time of 0.1 ms and total viewing angles. The manufacturer claims 100% coverage of sRGB and Adobe RGB color spaces, 99% of DCI-P3 and 80% of Rec. 2020. On the refresh side, despite the very fast response time of the panel, we will be content with a refresh rate of 60 Hz. We will therefore have to wait a little longer to see an Oled 120, 144 or 165 Hz gamer monitor. Asus ensures that Delta E is less than 1 in SDR and 2 in DCI-P3 (HDR).
The most original functionality remains the integration of a calibration probe which allows to calibrate automatically on a recurring basis to avoid colorimetric drift. The free software Asus ProArt 2.0 provides calibration, but it is also possible to use professional and paid software from Calman and Light Illusion ColourSpace CMS. This is not a first, since the manufacturer Dell had already integrated a probe on its high-end UltraSharp UP2720Q monitor. This feature can nevertheless be very interesting for image professionals.
The monitor should come with a conventional stand, allowing height and tilt adjustment as well as rotation, but also with table legs to provide better stability when used as a control monitor .
Asus, which has not communicated on the connectivity or the date of availability, is even more discreet about the price. For comparison, the LG UltraFine 32EP950 Oled monitor using the same Oled panel is already on sale for around € 5,000. The Asus monitor should therefore logically be sold in the same tariff waters.
