Capture Every Detail
The ProArt PA32UC features a 32" 4K (3840 x 2160) panel with 138 ppi for four times the pixel density and up to 300% more onscreen space than other Full HD monitors of a similar size. Enjoy great clarity with the fine details while performing visually intensive design tasks or while watching 4K video.
A Brighter, More Lifelike Viewing Experience
The ProArt PA32UC has an Ultra HD Premium certification - the industry standard for HDR. Designed to enhance the contrast between the brightest and darkest parts of an image, HDR technology delivers greater onscreen clarity and detail.
Deep Blacks, Bright Whites
Featuring a full-array LED backlight with ASUS LED Driving technology, the ProArt PA32UC has 384 LED zones and a peak brightness of 1000 cd/m², so it can produce deep blacks and bright whites.
Bring Out the Beauty of Your Pictures
The ProArt PA32UC achieves wide color coverage to exceed industry standards by delivering 85% Rec. 2020, 99.5% Adobe RGB, 95% DCI-P3, and 100% sRGB color gamuts. It features 14-bit color graphics to display more than 1.07 billion colors. It also uses a 14-bit internal lookup table and supports Gamma values of 2.6, 2.4, 2.2, 2.0, and 1.8 to produce natural-looking images with smoother transitions between hues.
Higher Color Fidelity for Expressive Hues
The ProArt PA32UC monitors are pre-calibrated to help guarantee strong color accuracy with a ∆E value below 2. Each monitor comes with a report of calibration levels 63, 127, and 255, and features gray-scale tracking technology to help ensure your images are accurately reproduced onscreen. The monitor also includes technology to help ensure 95% uniformity compensation to help guard against brightness and chroma (color) fluctuations across the screen.
ASUS ProArt Calibration Technology
Whether you're using a desktop, laptop, Windows, or Mac, ASUS ProArt Calibration technology offers color accuracy tuning and uniformity compensation to make things easy when it's time to recalibrate your display's brightness and color consistency.

Color Accuracy Optimization
Achieve optimum color accuracy when working with different types of content with a variety of advanced presets, allowing you to easily adjust color gamut, brightness, black levels, gamma correction, color temperature and uniformity.

Uniformity Compensation
Select a 3 x 3 or 5 x 5 uniformity compensation matrix to help ensure consistent brightness across the screen and to reduce color shift.

Color Parameter Profiles
The ProArt PA32UC allows you to save color profiles on an integrated circuit (IC) chip - so your settings travel with the monitor if you connect it to a different device, eliminating the need for recalibration. It also helps reduce the signal distortion between the IC chip and the LCD optical spectrum. Color profiles can be easily activated via the hotkey on the monitor, without a computer or calibrator.

Compatible with Most Calibrators
The ProArt PA32UC is compatible with most major hardware calibrators, including X-rite i1 Display Pro and Datacolor Spyder 5 series.
Thunderbolt 3 for Versatile, Fast Connections
The ProArt PA32UC includes two USB Type-C ports that support Thunderbolt 3 for data transfer speeds of up to 40 Gb/s, as well as a DisplayPort and USB 3.0 with Power Delivery to provide up to 60W of power to external devices. Thunderbolt 3 also makes it possible to daisy-chain several displays through a single port, without the need for a hub or a switch.
Picture-in-Picture & Picture-by-Picture
Both built-in Picture-in-Picture (PiP) and Picture-by-Picture (PbP) functionalities allow you to view content from multiple sources simultaneously and switch between them easily. You can even select which audio source to play.
Picture-by-Picture (PbP) Mode
To simultaneously experience different settings, place multiple input sources side by side onscreen and configure each individual window's color settings with sRGB, Adobe RGB, DCI-P3, Rec. 2020, User Mode 1, or User Mode 2.
Picture-in-Picture (PiP) Mode
Place your second input source in a window in one corner of the display.
QuickFit Virtual Scale
Save time and work smarter with ASUS QuickFit Virtual Scale ― an onscreen grid overlay that lets you align and preview documents in their actual sizes, prior to printing. An intuitive 5-way navigation joystick makes it easy to access and switch settings using the onscreen menu.
ASUS Eye Care Technology / ASUS Blue Light Filter
ASUS' Ultra-Low Blue Light technology is designed to help protect viewers from harmful exposure to blue light. The blue light filter offers four settings that are accessed through the onscreen display menu via the hotkey.
ASUS Flicker-Free Technology
ASUS Flicker-Free technology provides a more comfortable viewing experience by reducing onscreen flicker to minimize eye strain, headaches, and eye fatigue.
Ergonomic Design
A comfortable viewing position can be achieved with the ProArt PA32UC, thanks to its slim profile and ergonomically designed stand that offers tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustments. Its onscreen menu even rotates automatically to display correctly when the monitor is used in portrait orientation, which is handy when working with websites or longer documents. Swivel from -60 to 60°, pivot from -90 to 90°, and tilt from -5 to 23°. Its height can also be adjusted by up to 5.12".

Will this work on a Late 2013 15&quot; MacBook Pro at 2560 by 1600?
Asked by: Elastic
Yes! Your computer screen resolution DOES NOT effect the monitor quality. However, you have to have a powerful enough graphics card so that your computer can still run while outputting to such a powerful monitor. If you are running basic applications you won&rsquo;t notice any performance issues, but if your using something like maya or premiere you will notice a slower render/processing speed. If it slows your computer down you can always drop the quality down. I highly recommend this monitor and I love it. What programs/applications are you using (I&rsquo;m assuming something with ps or video editing because that&rsquo;s what this color accurate monitor is meant for)

Is this DP1.2? If this isn't DP 1.4, how can it support HDR. I thought real hardware support for HDR was introduced in DP1.4. My another concern is why this monitor isn't DisplayHDR1000 certified. Since it's got only DP1.2, does this monitor use software implementation to mimic HDR effect (fake HDR)?
Asked by: Sitthinart
Accordingly with the pdf specifications the display uses HDR simulation.
