Two new displays from ASUS feature at NAB: the 8K Mini LED ASUS ProArt Display PA32KCX and the ProArt Display OLED PA32UCDM.

While 8K in the home has yet to really get, well, anywhere much really, shooting in 8K gives creators at the cutting-edge of XR and virtual production exceptionally high-resolution footage, affording them wide flexibility in post-production without sacrificing the ability to produce final products in a full 4K resolution. It’s becoming a high-end production format, in other words, and high-end production formats need suitably high-end production tools.

ASUS ProArt Display PA32KCX

The new ASUS ProArt Display PA32KCX is billed as the world’s first 8K Mini LED professional monitor. This 32-inch 8K (7680 x 4320) display offers an average ΔE value of less than one for world-leading color accuracy, and it also covers 97% of the cinema-grade DCI-P3 color gamut for beautifully saturated color reproduction. 

A 4096-zone Mini LED backlight capable of 1200 nits peak brightness and industry-leading 1000 nits full-screen sustained brightness, makes it an excellent candidate for HDR workflows. As such, it supports multiple HDR metadata formats, including HLG and HDR10, allowing creators to check how content will appear for a wide range of target displays before it is sent off for final delivery.

A built-in motorized flip colorimeter makes it easy to maintain the display’s professional-level accuracy over the long term, and it supports auto/self-calibration to ensure that calibration never interferes with creative workflows. It also features LuxPixel Technology, a suite of the latest advancements including Anti-Glare, Low-Reflection (AGLR) tech, and Eye Care+. With all this, ASUS says that creators can follow their inspiration and preserve the image quality of their artwork without light disturbances and being held back by eye strain and fatigue. 

As you would expect, there is also a rich selection of connectivity options for supreme flexibility on the set or in the studio. In addition to its HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 2.1 ports and a USB hub, its dual Thunderbolt 4 USB Type-C ports offer unmatched versatility with up to 96 W USB Power Delivery.

The new ProArt Display OLED PA32UCDM 31.5-inch 4K UHD monitor delivers beautifully saturated and accurate colors with 99% coverage of the DCI-P3 color gamut. It is factory pre-calibrated to achieve an average ΔE value of less than one for world-leading color accuracy. ProArt Hardware Calibration technology provides color-accuracy optimization and color profile write-back.

It delivers what is described as ‘exceptional’ HDR experiences with true, inky blacks, 1000 nits of peak brightness and true 10-bit color depth. This display too supports multiple HDR metadata formats, including HDR-10 and HLG, and it works seamlessly with Calman and Light Illusion ColourSpace CMS professional hardware calibration software.

Connectivity options include Thunderbolt 4 with up to 96 W Power Delivery, HDMI 2.1 ports, and a built-in USB Hub, give creators versatile options for connecting their full workstation. It offers a 50% smaller base than the last-gen and versatile placement options with built-in anchor points and a partition wall bracket.

Pricing and availability is TBA on both.

And, of course, don’t forget that ASUS is also holding a series of ProArt Masters’ Talks at the show (C2934) today and tomorrow bringing industry experts, individual professionals, and communities together to share the latest trends, cutting-edge technologies and practical workflow tips and tools in the field.
