ASUS ProArt Display PA32KCX: a “creative” 8K mini-Led monitor


In the ProArt family, here are the monitors. At the NAB Show, Asus has presented two monitors in this range, the ProArt Display PA32KCX 8K/DP2.1 and the ProArt Display PA32UCDM QD-OLED. Both are designed for creative and imaging professionals.

The ProArt Display PA32KCX is a 32″ mini-LED display capable of 8K (7680 x 4320) resolution. ASUS claims that this is the world’s first 8K mini-LED monitor for professionals. The monitor has 97% cinema-quality DCI-P3 color gamut coverage. Thanks to its 4,096-zone Mini LED panel, it offers a maximum brightness of 1,200 nits and 1,000 nits of sustained full-screen brightness. The monitor also supports the HDR10 standard.

This high-end product is aimed at creators at the cutting edge of exceptionally high-resolution image production. This is clearly a high-end production tool. The screen supports self-calibration. It also incorporates LuxPixel technology, a suite of the latest advances, including Anti-Glare, Low-Reflection (AGLR) and Eye Care . With all this, ASUS claims that designers can follow their inspiration and preserve the image quality of their work without light disturbance or eyestrain.

In addition to its HDMI 2.1, DisplayPort 2.1 and USB hub ports, its two USB Type-C Thunderbolt 4 ports offer unrivalled versatility with up to 96 W USB Power Delivery.

For its second model, Asus offers a more “affordable” product. The ProArt Display OLED PA32UCDM features a 31.5″ QD-OLED panel rated at 4K UHD (3840 x 2160). This ProArt monitor has 99% DCI-P3 color gamut coverage. In addition, it has a maximum brightness rated at 1,000 nits and supports 10-bit color depth. More modest in terms of connectivity, this monitor offers a Thunderbolt 4 connection with up to 96 W of power, HDMI 2.1 ports and an integrated USB hub.

For the moment, there’s no official information on the price or availability of these two monitors. But it looks as if Asus really wants to extend its ProArt range to several product categories.
