Designed for photographers, video producers and graphics professionals, PA328Q is factory pre-
calibrated to give outstanding industry-leading color accuracy, with a wide color gamut of 100% sRGB and Rec. 709 color space support the latter being the standard HDTV format for video production and editing.
PA328Q uses a 12-bit internal lookup table (LUT) and supports gamma values of 2.4, 2.2, and 1.8 to enhance color accuracy, smoother color gradations and a more natural transition between hues. PA328Q has a color uniformity ranging between 91-103%, solving common problems like fluctuations in brightness and chroma on different parts of the screen to give accurate and consistent onscreen colors.

ASUS-exclusive technologies for increased user comfort and productivity
PA328Q features ASUS Eye Care Technology with TÜV Rheinland-certified Flicker-free technology which eliminates onscreen flicker to provide a more comfortable viewing experience. PA328Q also has Low Blue Light technology which is the basis for the Reading and Darkroom modes in ASUS SplendidPlus Video Intelligence Technology; these modes effectively reduce the level of blue light to reduce eye strain and fatigue for users.
ASUS-exclusive QuickFit Virtual Scale, and Picture-by-picture & Picture-in-picture functions
In addition, ASUS QuickFit Virtual Scale allows users to preview actual-size photos and documents on screen prior to printing. Onscreen square grid overlays provide users with alignment, adding to the overall flexibility and productivity aspects of the PA328Q display.
There is also Picture-in-Picture (PiP) and Picture-by-Picture (PbP) support, with users being able to simultaneously view and switch between multiple input sources easily. Users can configure how they want to view the various source windows; PiP mode lets users display content from a second input source in a window placed in one corner of the display, while PbP mode splits the screen down the middle.
