Direct type LED backlight displays have narrow viewing angles, which can make collaboration with clients or colleagues on colour-critical work challenging due to inaccurate colours being displayed to viewers seated to the side.
ASUS Off-Axis Contrast Optimization (OCO) technology solves this problem with a compensation layer that controls light transmittance around the edges, reducing halo effects by 80%* and providing a 7X* contrast-ratio enhancement for dark parts of the image when viewing the screen from an angle.
ASUS ProArt PA27UCX-K 4K monitor incorporates the leading technology of mini LED backlight, which is packed in physically half smaller LEDs than the conventional in more densely to increases the granularity of brightness control. ProArt PA27UCX-K offers individual backlight control of a whopping 576 zones with higher luminance and deeper darkness to deliver the best contrast and accurate reproduction of HDR contents.
