ASUS preps 27-inch QHD monitor

ASUS has introduced a new 27-inch QHD monitor – the VA278Q – targeting professionals that require 2560×1440 screen resolution.

The novelty comes with some technological improvements that distinguish it from other 27-inch monitors. First, the pixel pitch has been lowered to 0.233 mm which is 25% smaller compared to other generic 27” monitors. The lower pixel pitch will bring users sharper images. Another tech improvement is the extreme viewing angles that the monitor features – now the ASUS VA278Q provides 178° wide-viewing angles on both vertical and horizontal planes.

The LED-backlit panel provides 100% sRGB color space compatibility to give impressive image reproductions with color shift kept to a minimum. The contrast ratio has also been improved to 80 000 000 : 1. The monitor can also dynamically adjust the contrast by adjusting the luminance of the backlight to get the darkest black and brightest white hues.

Also featured is the ASUS Splendid™ Video Intelligence Technology. This provides six pre-set picture modes (Theatre, Scenery, Gaming, Night View, sRGB, and Standard) to provide settings optimized for the content onscreen.

The VA278Q also comes with dual-link DVI compatibility and DisplayPort and a bunch of other connectivity options. It also comes with an ergonomically-designed stand that provides tilt, pivot, swivel, and height adjustments.

Pricing is currently unknown.
