ASUS ProArt PA32UCX-PK Receives High Praise from Creative Professionals

For creative professionals in photography and film, color accuracy and image quality are paramount. ASUS recently spoke with four content creators — a colorist, a cinematographer, an animator, and a high-concept Unreal Engine filmmaker — to get their take on what it’s like working with the ASUS ProArt PA32UCX-PK monitor.

ASUS ProArt PA32UCX-PK is a 32-inch 4K HDR calibrated monitor that features variable mini-LED backlighting and 1200 nits peak brightness. It offers Off-Axis Contrast Optimization technology to reduce halo effects by 80% as well as 7X contrast-ratio enhancement. This means that on screen colors and even dark imagery are presented accurately to viewers even when viewing from an angle.

Thanks to its exceptional Delta E < 1 color accuracy, Calman Ready and Colour Space integration, multiple HDR format support (Dolby Vision, HDR-10, HLG) and ergonomic design, ProArt PA32UCX-PK has been well-received by creative professionals specializing in cinematography, animation, visual effects and photography.

“It is vital that the monitor is calibrated and accurate to broadcast standards. My work is based around color, and if I don’t have an accurate representation of it I’m basically working blind,” sayspost-production colorist Darren Mostyn. “Good color performance means that I can rely on my monitor to give an accurate account of what I’m going to be sending to the broadcasters.”

Photographer and cinematographer Brett Danton works with 4K imagery everyday, so the 4K HDR display with 1152-zone mini-LED backlighting and 1200 nits peak brightness of PA32UCX-PK are a perfect solution for him. 

“Professional-quality reference monitors have always been very expensive. Before I received this monitor I could only judge my images by going to an expensive post house,” Danton explains. “I can now work confidently at home at a level that simply wasn’t possible before. It’s completely changed my post-production workflow.”

PA32UCX-PK enables filmmaker Haz Dullul to conduct post-production color checks with the same quality and accuracy found on professional equipment used in post-production facilities. 

“Delivering 4K for streamers such as Netflix means that my display specs and color need to be of the highest industry standard,” Dullul says. “ASUS ProArt comes with a professional calibrator that puts my mind at ease, knowing that what I am creating at my home studio is going to pass the QC checks when the content is passed to content distributors, and eventually to the audience.”

Animator Julia Young notes the benefits of the ergonomic stand with tilt, swivel, pivot and height adjustability as well as the VESA mount option offered by PA32UCX-PK. “The most important thing for me is that my setup is ergonomic and that I have the most reliable equipment that I can afford,” says Young.
