Envision bigger with 2560 x 1440 WQHD, packing four times the pixel density of 720p. The 16:9 wide-format PB278Q LED displays with PLS panel offer 178° wide viewing angles for enhanced productivity, offering additional multitasking space to fit more windows and projects on-screen.
Asus' Splendid Video Intelligence Technology, QuickFit Virtual Scale and 100% sRGB fidelity help ensure reality-defining colour and image accuracy. HDMI, DisplayPort, and dual-link DVI support WQHD natively, accentuated by room-dominating audio via twin 3W speakers. To help you stay naturally focused, the ergonomic design includes tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustment, plus streamlined cabling that keeps clutter off your desktop.
The PB278Q WQHD monitor features a PLS, LED-backlit panel that provides 109 pixels per inch (PPI), resulting in high quality 2560 x 1440 visuals -- four times the resolution of standard 720p sets. View image detail and do more with a large onscreen footprint.
The screen's 109 PPI 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 PB278Q, power and energy savings are not compromised, while better visuals are assured.
The PB278Q features a PLS panel, which provides an ultra-wide 178° viewing angle on both horizontal and vertical planes -- minimising onscreen colour shift even when viewed from extreme angles. With its WQHD display, you enjoy 77% more desktop space than a full HD screen to spread out your windows and palettes. It also delivers ultra-smooth visuals thanks to 5ms (GTG) response time, helping to ensure a lag-free experience when watching films and playing games.
The PB278Q features a host of connectivity options, including HDMI, DisplayPort and dual-link DVI for native WQHD, plus D-sub for full HD 1080p content transmission. Twin built-in 3W speakers provide quality audio for a completely immersive home theatre experience.
With 80,000,000:1, Asus Smart Contrast Ratio (ASCR) and 300cd/m² brightness, the PB278Q enhances display contrast and sharpness by adjusting backlight luminance to achieve deep black tones and bright whites, resulting in extra-clear visuals that truly come to life.
Driven by a precision colour engine that automatically analyses and determines the nature of the task, Splendid Video Intelligence Technology adjusts display parameters accordingly to ensure colour accuracy and image fidelity. Six preset modes (scenery, theatre, sRGB, standard, and two user-customisable modes) can be quickly selected via a designated hotkey.
The PB278Q offers a highly ergonomic and smart design that comes with tilt, pivot, swivel, and height adjustments to ensure an always-comfortable viewing and usage experience. Its smart cable management further promotes clutter-free spaces for work and enjoyment.
