True Color, Always Gorgeous
Experience professional-grade color fidelity and reproduction with the ASUS PA248Q ProArt series LCD display. Each PA248Q guarantees industry-leading color accuracy, having been pre-calibrated to minimize the color different to ?E < 5 right out of box. The PA248Q delivers 100% sRGB color reproduction on its 16:10, 1920 x 1200 optimal HD A+ IPS panel with 178° ultra-wide viewing angle.
It is the world’s first monitor with four USB 3.0 ports, ensuring enhanced productivity thanks to data transfer speeds that are up to 10X faster than Current USB 2.0 standards.
The True Color
Pre-calibrated right out-of box
The out-of-box settings are impressive as each PA248Q is pre-calibrated at factory to prove the best color accuracy. To ensure that each PA248Q produces the most accurate and consistent color, we carefully measure its ?E and gamma value and track its gray-scaling. It even supports both Gamma 2.2 for PC and Gamma 1.8 for Mac – offering users more flexibilities to work with.
Each PA248Q guarantees industry-leading color accuracy, having been calibrated to minimize color difference to ?E (Delta E) of less than 5 – ensuring precise reading of color input and guarantees excellent color fidelity.
Optimal HD A+ IPS Panel
The ASUS PA248Q features a 16:10 aspect ratio, 1920 x 1200 A+ IPS LED-backlit panel for 100% sRGB and 72% NTSC color reproduction; addititionally, along with a 178° wide viewing angle, it ensures quality visuals and minimal onscreen color shift from almost any viewing position.
ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio
With ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio (ASCR) of 80,000,000:1 and 300cd/m² of brightness, the ASUS PA248Q enhances display contrast and sharpness – by adjusting the luminance of the backlight to achieve the darkness black and brightest white – delivering lifelike visuals.
Customized Color Adjustment
Customized hue and saturation control with 6 color adjustment allows user to adjust six colors (red, green, blue, cyan, magenta and yellow) independently without effecting other colors.
ASUS PA248Q also delivers ultra-smooth visuals thanks to a 6ms (GTG) response time – ensuring users have a lag-free viewing experience when it comes to watching movies or playing games. Games played under the PA248Q are more vivid – as all details can be seen and true color can be shown with the PA248Q.
The World’s First Monitor with Four USB 3.0 Ports
PA248Q sets a standard by being the world’s first monitor with four USB 3.0 ports; users can easily plug in their devices and experience ultra-fast transmission speeds that are up to 10 times* that of current USB 2.0 standards.
*Experience ultra-fast data transfers at 4.8Gbps with USB 3.0 – the latest connectivity standard. Built to connect easily with next-generation components and peripherals, USB 3.0 transfer data 10X faster and is also backward compatible with USB 2.0 components.
Expand your visual horizon with multi-display setup
An extensive array of connectivity and high compatibility options are available with the PA248Q including DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI and D-Sub; the PA248Q also allows users to use up to two or three displays simultaneously.
With award-winning design, fast response time and advanced visual technology, DisplayPort-ready PA248Q gives you a leading multi-display experience – so you can see all the true color and every detail brilliantly.
ASUS Exclusive Innovation and Design
Splendid™ Video Intelligence Technology
