ASUS PB287Q 4K/UHD Monitor Features
The ASUS PB287Q features a 16:9 aspect 28-inch white light emitting diode (WLED) display that delivers next-generation 4K/UHD visuals, with resolutions up to 3840 x 2160. With a pixel density of 157 pixels per inch (PPI), the PB287Q provides four times the pixel density of standard Full HD displays for astonishingly detailed visuals. With 300% more onscreen space than similarly-sized Full HD displays, the ASUS PB287Q provides a larger area for multiple work windows for more productive multitasking.
Capable of displaying 1.07 billion colors, the PB287Q delivers outstanding color reproduction and saturation thanks to its 330cd/m² brightness and a 100,000,000:1 ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio (ASCR). With real 10-bit display colors, PB287Q has smooth color gradations for a more natural-looking transition between hues. The PB287Q also boasts an impressive 1 ms gray-to-gray (GTG) fast response time and a 60 Hz refresh rate for fluid and responsive visuals required by today’s games.
The ASUS PB287Q features extensive connectivity options that include DisplayPort 1.2 for true 4K/UHD content support at refresh rates of up to 60 Hz, two HDMI ports, with the second HDMI port providing MHL support. Users can also use the MHL connector to view content from their mobile device on the PB287Q whilst charging the mobile device at the same time.
There is also Picture-in-Picture (PiP) and Picture-by-Picture (PbP) support, with users being able to switch between video sources easily. 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.
The ASUS PB287Q features the new SplendidPlus Video Intelligence Technology that optimizes videos and images by enhancing color brightness, contrast, and sharpness. It features two new modes – Reading and Darkroom – in addition to the Scenery, Standard, Theater, sRGB, Game, and Night View modes found in previous versions. The PB287Q also comes with ASUS EyeCare Technology, which adopts Flicker-free technology and uses DC adjustment backlighting to reduce onscreen flicker and provide a more comfortable viewing experience. ASUS EyeCare Technology also provides the basis for Reading and Darkroom modes in SplendidPlus, these modes effectively reduce the level of blue light to reduce eye strain and fatigue for users.
ASUS VividPixel Technology adds to the PB287Q’s crystal-clear and detailed visuals by enhancing image outlines and reducing noise bars.
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 Asus PB287Q display.
The Asus PB287Q features a slim, ergonomic design with a full range of swivel, tilt, pivot and height adjustments to provide the user with an ideal viewing position. The PB287Q is also VESA mount compatible for wall or stand mounting.
