Taipei, Taiwan (January 25, 2011) — ASUS today announced the PA246Q ProArt Series monitor, a 24-inch LCD monitor with a native resolution of 1920x1200 (16:10 aspect ratio) that features a P-IPS panel with wide color gamut, reproducing 98% of the Adobe RGB color space, and a 178° wide viewing angle. The PA246Q also comes with the ASUS-exclusive QuickFit Virtual Scale and a highly adjustable stand to enhance users’ productivity. DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI-D and D-sub inputs are included for easy connection to multiple devices.

Color precision of the highest level
The P-IPS equipped PA246Q reproduces 98% of the Adobe RGB color space, allowing it to accurately display almost the entire color spectrum of a photograph taken with a DSLR camera. The monitor also comes with a sRGB mode so that images meant for display on web pages will be shown as intended. The PA246Q is capable of displaying 1.07 billion colors, which is sixty-four times more colors than most conventional displays. Each PA246Q is also calibrated to minimize the color difference to Delta E less than 5, guaranteeing industry-leading color accuracy.

QuickFit Virtual Scale – One-click away for realistic scale measuring
The ASUS exclusive QuickFit Virtual Scale provides real size document, photo and grid formats on top of open windows. It enables a real-sized preview of finished artwork with a simple press of a hotkey.
• Overlay formats:
• Document: A4, Letter,
• Photo: 8”x10”, 5”x7”, 4”x6”, 3”x5”, 2”x2”
• Grid: Alignment, Centimeters, Inches
Users can use it as a guide to quickly and accurately preview images and photo in real size on the screen without actually printing it; achieve high efficiency while saving the planet by using less paper.

Highly versatile for maximum flexibility
The PA246Q is outfitted with an adjustable stand offering 100mm of height adjustment, -5°~+20° tilt, ±60° swivel and 90° pivot for portrait display. The PA246Q’s monitor body can also be removed from the stand for reconfiguration on a VESA-compliant mounting device.

Hassle-free with extensive connectivity
The PA246Q comes with numerous built-in ports for easy access to external devices and media. DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI and D-sub connections allow for a wide range of products to be displayed on the PA246Q. Picture-in-picture multitasking capability also allows users to view images from different signals. Two built-in USB ports enables instant file sharing with USB storage, charging and syncing smart phones or other media devices, and a 7-in-1 media card reader allowing for a quick and easy transfer of photos taken from a DSLR camera.
