ASUS ProArt Display PA147CDV: 14-inch and 32:9 touchscreen showcased at NAB 2022 before North American release
Earlier this week, ASUS announced that it would be attending NAB 2022, where it teased it would announce several OLED-backed laptops. The company has also exhibited the ProArt Display PA147CDV, a device that it describes as a portable monitor. As Tom's Hardware notes, the PA147CDV's aspect ratio makes it more suitable as a secondary display than a dedicated portable monitor.
Specifically, the ProArt Display PA147CDV has a 14-inch display that operates at 1,920 x 550 pixels. In other words, the display has a 32:9 aspect ratio, twice as wide as contemporary 16:9 displays. According to ASUS, the ProArt Display PA147CDV relies on an IPS and 10-bit colour panel with a built-in touchscreen layer that also supports the Microsoft Pen Protocol 2.0 (MPP 2.0) should you wish to use the device for drawing.
Moreover, ASUS factory calibrates the ProArt Display PA147CDV so that it provides Delta E<2 deviations, along with 100% sRGB and Rec.709 colour space coverages. Unfortunately, the display's peak brightness remains unknown at this stage, as do its dimensions and weight. In saying that, the ProArt Display PA147CDV has HDMI and USB Type-C ports, plus an ASUS Dial that mirrors the Surface Dial's functionality.
For reference, ASUS initially unveiled the ProArt Display PA147CDV in September 2021. However, ASUS has finally confirmed that it will release the device in Q2 2022, but only in North America. Release dates outside North America remain unknown at this stage, as does pricing in the US.
