    Game Developers

    Take advantage of the 48 to 120 Hz refresh rate to create fast-rendering games and conduct quality checks on a single display.

  • Cinematographers


    The 32-inch mini-LED backlit 4K panel offers higher luminance and deeper black hues for exceptional color contrast and accurate reproduction of HDR content.

  • Colorists


    Factory pre-calibration ensures industry-leading color fidelity, and a wide color gamut and Delta E < 1 color difference ensures outstanding color accuracy.

Impeccably detailed visuals

Mini-LED backlight technology uses smaller LEDs to provide up to three times the number of LEDs, compared to a conventional panel of a similar size. The densely packed mini LEDs enable increased granularity and brightness. Plus, individual backlight control across an astounding 1152 zones ensures higher luminance and deep dark colors to deliver unmatched contrast and accurate reproduction of HDR content.

Excellent color and contrast from any viewing angle

Direct type LED backlight displays have narrow viewing angles, which can make collaboration with clients or colleagues on color-critical work challenging due to inaccurate colors being displayed to viewers seated to the side.ASUS Off-Axis Contrast Optimization (OCO) technology solves this problem with a compensation layer that controls light transmittance around the edges, reducing halo effects by 80%* and providing a 7X* contrast-ratio enhancement for dark parts of the image when viewing the screen from an angle.

Color parameter profiles

ASUS ProArt Calibration technology saves all color parameter profiles on the ProArt monitor’s internal scaler IC chip, instead of on the PC. The saved profiles can be easily activated via the hotkey on the monitor.
The monitor can be calibrated and the look-up table subsequently rewritten, allowing users to connect it to devices with different operating systems or applications without needing to adjust settings. Signal distortion between the IC and the LCD optical spectrum is also reduced.

Integrated ASUS ProArt Calibration 2.0 enables swift and easy adjustments to maintain the color accuracy of ASUS ProArt monitors. It offers SDR and HDR calibration with adjustable brightness, color gamut, color temperature and other parameters to ensure consistent and precise colors.
