ASUS Unveils ProArt PQ22UC OLED Monitor: 4K, 99% DCI-P3, 0.1 ms Response Time

LAS VEGAS, NV — ASUS has announced its first professional OLED display at CES 2018. The ProArt PQ22UC features a 4K resolution and covers 99% of the DCI-P3 color space, making it a good solution for professionals who need this spectrum. ASUS says that the compact dimensions and light weight of the device make it a good option both for post-production and on-set routines.

The ASUS ProArt PQ22UC is based on a 21.6” 4K RGB stripe OLED panel made by JOLED (a joint venture between Sony and Panasonic) using the company’s printing method. The panel features a 3840×2160 resolution, a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1, and a response time of 0.1 ms. The monitor can reproduce 1.07 billion colors and covers 99% of the DCI-P3 color space. ASUS does not say anything about the brightness of the panel, 3D LUT, sRGB, and Rec. 2020 support. The company does say that the “dynamic range is wide enough to support HDR content”, so the look-up tables are there, but it is unknown whether the PQ22UC supports the HDR10 or other high dynamic range specs. In any case, HDR requires relatively high brightness levels and luminance is not a strong side of the OLED technology in general, so the actual HDR experience on the PQ22UC is something that remains to be seen. Meanwhile, 3D LUTs can be used on set to emulate specific display devices for quality assessments.

ASUS positions the ProArt PQ22UC as a professional solution for those on the go, which is why it uses USB Type-C and micro-HDMI inputs (no word on exact protocols, but DP 1.2 and HDMI 2.0x are likely) to save space. The display features an angled stand that can regulate height & tilt and can be detached and folded flat for easier transportation.

The display is factory calibrated to Delta E≦2 color accuracy and comes with the ASUS ProArt Calibration feature that saves color parameter profiles to the monitor rather than to a host PC, which is particularly useful for a mobile solution that can be attached to different computers.

ASUS has not released any details regarding pricing and availability timeframes of the ProArt PQ22UC. Meanwhile, JOLED says that its 21.6” 4K OLED panels are in production.
