In this way it manages to offer exceptionally faithful colors, able to highlight even the small details even more effectively.
OLED technology achieves ultra-precise color control and an extreme level of contrast, making every single pixel a true light source. Billions of self-illuminating pixels can be activated individually to reproduce absolutely vibrant images, with incredibly deep blacks and enhanced color contrast even on high luminance images. These features make the new ProArt PA32DC a natural choice for professional HDR content management. Furthermore, VESA DisplayHDR 400 True Black certification and 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio ensure the deepest blacks and brightest whites.

All of this is backed up by a super-fast response time of just 0.1ms, ensuring absolutely blur-free video or animated content.
Uniform brightness setting
OLED displays are equipped with an automatic brightness limiter (Auto Brightness Limiter or ABL) to optimize energy consumption. So when viewing a white (or very bright) image in a particular window, the display automatically dims the image as the window size increases. PA32DC offers a rich set of inputs: One USB-C port, one DisplayPort 1.4 and three HDMI 2.0 ports for compatibility with all types of current or future displays and peripherals. It also features an audio jack and can also function as a USB hub, ready to integrate seamlessly into existing setups and workflows.
