Asus has just revealed its new massive PQ321 4K Ultra HD Monitor, which spans 31.5 inches in measurement. With its resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels and aspect ratio of 16:9, the monitor promises to have four times the resolution of a 1920 x 1080 Full HD display. The monitor has 140 pixels per inch, which is lower than the iPad’s 264 pixels per inch.
Asus says that the LED-backlit monitor is made with Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide (IGZO) instead of amorphous silicone. IGZO allows the monitor to have smaller pixels, and thus, clearer images.
It also supports 1.07 billion collors, in 10-bit RGB deep color, and has a viewing angle of 176 degrees.
Furthermore, the monitor has 350 cd/m2 brightness, 8ms (gtg) response time, and adjustments for gamma and color temperature.
Input and output ports include 2 HDMI ports, DisplayPort, 3.5 mm audio in and out, and RSC-232C. DisplayPort 1.2 and RS-232C conversion cables are also available with the monitor.
The monitor may be mounted on a wall, and adjustments for the swivel, tilt, and height are available.
It comes with built-in 2W stereo speakers, as well.
The PQ321 monitor may be used with the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4, both of which support 4K resolution. It can likewise be used as a television, since it comes with built-in speakers. Sony’s “mastered in 4K” movies would provide good use for the large monitor, as well. Those who are planning to use Windows 8.1 will also be pleased to note that Windows 8.1 appears to have support for 4K resolution.
As of the moment, Asus has not revealed the price for the monitor, but more details will likely be given during Computex next week in Taiwan. Asus is expected to showcase the monitor, along with other new products, during the computer expo. Apart from the PQ321, Asus is expected to unveil a 39-inch monitor, as well.
Meanwhile, the monitor is due to arrive in the North American market by the end of June.
