NEC has released its PA322UHD-BK-2, a 31.5" 4K monitor with features targeting the graphics or video professional. The monitor uses an IGZO panel that delivers 99.2% of the Adobe RGB color space, 10-bit color support, maximum brightness of 350cd/m2 and a contrast ratio of 1000:1. Those professional chops are backed up by support for Open Pluggable Specification expansion cards, which can be used to add broadcast-oriented inputs like HD-SDI.
The PA322UHD-2 is loaded with input options, including two DisplayPort 1.2 ports, one HDMI 2.0 input, and up to four HDMI 1.4 or two DVI-D inputs. It also features a built-in KVM switch that NEC calls "DisplaySync Pro," which allows users to connect two PCs to the display and control them using one keyboard and mouse. While this display does support multiple refresh rates from 24Hz all the way up to 120Hz, those looking to game during off-hours will not find support for variable-refresh-rate technology.
There is a price to be paid for these advanced features: the PA322UHD-2 will carry a suggested price of $2,999. NEC expects the monitor to be available this month.
