 PA279Q

True, Consistent Color

Color Consistency for Photographer and Retouching with 99% Adobe RGB Color Space

The ASUS PA279Q is pre-calibrated at the factory for the highest accuracy and outstanding color space reproduction – 99% Adobe RGB, 100% sRGB, and 120%* NTSC. With a wide color gamut of 99% Adobe RGB, the colors seen in photos will be reproduced faithfully and consistently in a way that cannot otherwise be on monitors with just an sRGB color space.


 PA279Q

10-Bit Color for Smoother Gradations

The PA279Q offers 10-bit display color for over one billion on-screen colors and supports 14-bit internal look-up table (LUT), which gives smoother gradations and a more natural transition between hues.

Pre-Calibrated Right Out-of-the-Box

The out-of-the-box settings are impressive as each PA279Q is pre-calibrated at factory to prove the best color accuracy. To ensure that each PA279Q produces the most accurate and consistent color, we carefully measure its ΔE and gamma value and track its gray-scaling. It even supports Gamma 2.2 for PC and Gamma 1.8 for Mac – offering users more flexibilities to work with. Each PA279Q guarantees industry-leading color accuracy, having been pre-calibrated to minimize the color difference to ΔE (Delta E) of less than two – ensuring precise reading of color input and guarantees excellent color fidelity.

 PA279Q

Next-Generation IPS Display Technology

The ASUS PA279Q features AH-IPS (Advanced High-Performance In-Plane Switching) display technology for superior color accuracy, a brighter image from increased backlight transmission and lower power consumption. Each PA279Q also features a brightness rated at 350cd/m² and an 100,000,000:1 ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio for enhanced image contrast.

 PA279Q

See Better and Wider

The PA279Q WQHD monitor provides 109 pixels per inch (PPI), resulting in high quality 2560 x 1440 visuals – equaling four times the resolution of stand 720p sets. It allows users to view greater image detail and do more with an onscreen footprint larger than that of standard displays.

The screen's 109PPI density means there are 109 RGB matrices within one inch. Generally, the more pixels a display has, the more lighting (or power) those pixels require to achieve the best visuals. However, with advanced LED backlighting on the PA279Q, power and energy savings are no longer compromised, while better visuals are assured.

Made for Work and Play

With its WQHD display, you enjoy 77% more desktop space than a full HD screen to spread out your windows and palettes. It is also about 25% sharper than a generic 27" full HD display, delivering ultra-smooth visuals thanks to 6ms (GTG) response time. This ensures you get lag-free experiences in movies and gaming, with the latter looking more vivid, with all in-game details shown in true color. The ASUS PA279Q is undoubtedly your best choice for work and play.

Six-Axis Independent Color Adjustment

Customized hue and saturation control with six-color adjustment allows you to adjust six colors (red, green, blue, cyan, magenta and yellow) independently without affecting other colors.

Uniformity Compensation

The ASUS PA279Q comes with Uniformity Compensation to help solve problems like brightness and chroma (color) fluctuations on different parts of the screen. The diagram below shows the difference between the luminance recorded at each point on the screen as compared to the central reference point. Ideally, the luminance difference should be within -3% to 2%. You can turn on the Uniformity Compensation function in the OSD to prevent inconsistent and inaccurate color.

Robust Connectivity

The PA279Q has a built-in multi-format memory SD card slot and a six-port USB 3.0 hub for convenient pass-through connectivity at speeds up to ten times that of USB 2.0, with compatible devices. One USB port also supports SuperSpeed Battery Charge for accelerated (about 40% faster) USB device recharging than standard USB 3.0.

The ASUS PA279Q has DisplayPort, HDMI and dual-link DVI-D ports, and can display content from two video inputs simultaneously. DisplayPort allows users to daisy chain up to four monitors* for a multi-display workstation from one video source.

ASUS Exclusive Innovation and Design

Splendid™ Video Intelligence Technology

ASUS Splendid™ Video Intelligence Technology is built upon a color engine that automatically analyzes and determines the nature of the user's current task, thereafter adjusting the display's parameters according to ensure color accuracy and image fidelity. Seven preset modes (Scenery, Theater, Adobe RGB, sRGB, standard and two user modes) can be selected via a designated hotkey.


 PA279Q

Intuitive Five-Way Navigation Key

The PA279Q has a 5-way navigation key that acts as a joystick that gives access to the QuickFit Virtual Scale function along with all OSD functions and settings.

 PA279Q

Customizable OSD Shortcuts

The PA279Q also features two user-customizable shortcuts for frequently used monitor controls, removing the need to navigate the full on-screen menu system.


Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture

ASUS exclusive innovations Picture-in-Picture (PIP) and Picture-by-Picture (PBP) allows users to view images from different signals in almost anyway they want. PIP and PBP let users view images from different signals and let them switch between the main and PIP source, including audio, easily.

 PA279Q

QuickFit Virtual Scale Function

ASUS included its exclusive QuickFit Virtual Scale Function with the PA279Q , allowing users to preview photos and documents on screen in their actual sizes prior to printing. It can activated via a hotkey on monitor and used as a guide to accurately view and edit photos. Additionally, the PA279Q also comes with a choice of seven different background colors for users to choose from.

Supported Formats:
  • Document: A4, letter
  • Photo: 8 x 10", 5 x 7", 4 x 6", 3 x 5", 2 x 2"
  • Grid: Alignment, Centimeters, Inches

Ergonomic Design

As with most ASUS displays, the PA279Q is VESA-wall mount compliant and comes with a versatile stand with full tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustment. A monitor hood attachment is also supplied for shielding the display from bright ambient light for even greater color accuracy.
