Last year, a new Asus PA32DC 31.5-inch OLED computer monitor for creatives was unveiled. It was more of a teaser because not a lot of information was known at the time. Thanks to a freshly opened official product listing on various online retailers, however, there is now an accurate overall picture of the Asus OLED monitor, which is why we want to devote this report to the current status of the facts.
Asus ProArt Display OLED PA32DC comes with a built-in calibrator for automatic color reproduction, an OLED panel with 4K resolution (3840 × 2160 pixels), HDR format, and a contrast ratio of 1000000:1, which meets the requirements of the VESA DisplayHDR 400 True Black standard.
The display response time is only 0.1ms. The manufacturer claims 99 percent coverage of DCI-P3, Adobe RGB color space, and color accuracy DeltaE < 1. The screen supports 10-bit color depth and various HDR formats.
The Asus 4K monitor’s built-in calibrator uses ProArt 2.0 software and is compatible with popular professional color adjustment applications Calman and Light Illusion ColourSpace CMS.
The manufacturer notes that each copy of the ProArt Display OLED PA32DC is factory calibrated for color reproduction in HDR and SDR modes. Another interesting feature of this OLED PC monitor is the ability to send reminders to the user to recalibrate. In addition, the OLED display comes with a built-in handle for easy carrying.
