ASUS's new 24-inch Pro Monitor comes pre-calibrated


Distinguished Member
One for colour purists

Asus has announced their new professional 24-inch monitor in the PA249Q ProArt Series which is factory pre-calibrated for colour accuracy.

The PA249Q ProArt Series LCD Monitor has a native 1920 x 1200 resolution with 16:10 aspect ratio and features an AH-IPS (Advanced High-Performance In-Plane Switching) display technology for a bright image with wide viewing angles. The PA249Q also features ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio, and ASUS QuickFit Virtual Scale and Splendid Video Intelligence technologies.

Asus says the PA249Q wont leave the factory until delta errors for colour are below 3 - the point at which the human eye can't distinguish imperfections - but also features an independent six-axis color control if you want to calibrate to other gamuts. Asus says the monitor is capable of 99% Adobe Wide Gamut RGB, 100% sRGB and 120% NTSC. In addition, the PA249Q supports 10-bit ‘deep color’.


The PA249Q should be plenty bright enough for any environment with a claimed 350cd/m² peak. We'll take the claimed 80,000,000:1 ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio with several grains of salt. The only way they'll manage that is by auto-dimming. There's no way an IPS can get close to that figure.

The PA249Q ProArt Series LCD Monitor has DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI-D and D-Sub ports, and can display content from two video inputs at the same time. Picture-in-picture mode displays content from a second input in a window in one corner of the screen, while picture-by-picture mode splits the screen down the middle to display content from two separate sources side-by-side.

The PA249Q also features a four-port USB 3.0 hub for pass-through connectivity at speeds up to 10 times that of USB 2.0 with compatible devices. The monitor is mounted on a stand with full tilt, swivel, pivot and height adjustment.

We await pricing details.
