Now, Asus PA248Q LCD monitors has arrived evaluation room ZOL monitor channel, and today let us use professional equipment tested by our professional data and explain to render the display capabilities to combat this professional display.

How professional IPS color reproduction?

First, we tested by Spyder Elite 3 school colorimeter Asus accuracy of color reproduction. This indicator reflects the industry to adopt ΔE value, ΔE able to quantify the accuracy of color reproduction is a value, it can accurately reflect the performance of color accuracy.

Is: Spyder Elite 3 school colorimeter

NOTE: ΔE value reflects the size of the gap between the display and the standard value, so the lower, the better, the higher the score the more color description.

ASUS PA248Q performance for mainstream color accuracy explanation

The figure is the accuracy of the description of the various color performance ASUS PA248Q, wherein the data representative of the picture on the left shows ΔE values ​​represent the right side of the rectangular frame color, the smaller the value, the more accurate description of the color of their performance. After test, Asus PA248Q these 23 kinds of colors The average ΔE value of 2.81 and a maximum of 6.73To achieve a very good level.

From the figure we can see, for most Asus PA248Q color reproduction capability are more accurate, ΔE values ​​are 3 or less, but for some green, blue, brown and other colors reducing capacity more generally, ΔE value of 5 or more .

● ΔE value is interpreted

ΔE values ​​between 1.6 to 3.2, the human eye is essentially a color difference, there is only a small number of professional grade monitor, such as the value of $ EIZO, NEC 2690WUXi other models can do;

Between 3.2 6.5 professionally trained people can distinguish its different, but the average person is not observed the differences, usually professional-grade LCD to meet this standard, and a few excellent consumer-grade LCD can enter this interval ;

When 6.5 13 color difference already, but the color itself remains the same at this time available on most consumer-grade flat panel monitors are the grades.;

At 13-25, you can determine the performance of different colors, it can warm up the secondary colors;

More than 25 above, it is on behalf of another color.

PA248Q color display what effect?

Next, we come to Asus for color by professional characteristics of the instrument to be tested. In the test before we let ASUS PA248Q normal continuous use for more than an hour, and close the dynamic contrast ratio, and all color enhancement technology. The test environment color gentle illumination must comply with ISO3664 standards, not simply black hints to meet the requirements. in this test, our test environment light source color temperature 5000K, illumination 53Lux, fully standards-compliant.

Is: Spyder Elite 3 school colorimeter

Next, we need to do is to use the Spyder Elite 3 color correction instrument to produce this model of the original icc file, and drawn from the analysis of color characteristics Asus PA248Q. The following picture closed curve represents the sRGB color space and white, red closed curve represents ASUS PA248Q color space.

LCD color characteristics ASUS PA248Q
(The red part of the ASUS PA248Q color space, the white part of the sRGB color space)

In the figure, in theory, if the red area completely covered by white sRGB color space is the most ideal. Through the above picture, we can see that the representative of the ASUS PA248Q color space substantially covering the entire sRGB color space , it is for the vast majority of very rich colors can be shown, only a small part of the color display performance slightly less. overall, its performance is excellent.

Significance of the sRGB color space coverage

sRGB color space is Hewlett Packard and Microsoft work together for the Internet and a standard RGB color space, which defines the red, green and blue primary colors, that is, when the other two are zero color values ​​of the color maximum. Therefore if the monitor can completely contain the sRGB gamut, it will be able to fully qualified general photography and print work, color display is more accurate, and does not display color is. but if the monitor does not fully cover the sRGB color space, the monitor will not display properly part of the color. If the reference to more detailed information, please see "" a text.

Screen brightness uniformity performance okay?

Next, we take a screen on the Asus uniformity of the test, the first test is the screen brightness uniformity. Screen brightness uniformity test by means of the same school Spyder 3 Elite colorimeter to complete, we will screen divided into nine large area, (tests the following results were IRE output up to 100%, that is maximum output brightness and contrast) the distribution of the test to calculate the screen in all white, all black luminance and chromaticity coordinates of time, and ultimately come to the following conclusions.

ASUS PA248Q difference in brightness data 9 regions and the center point of brightness
(The smaller the difference, the more uniform the representative)

If the figure boring data you can not let ASUS PA248Q a more detailed understanding, we can observe the following screen brightness distribution.

ASUS PA248Q colored part of the screen
(The red part of the higher brightness, lower blue section explains brightness)

Through the map, we can see the ASUS PA248Q screen brightness at the center is the highest value of 286.9d / m2, and the brightness of its top-right corner of the screen area is relatively low, lower than the highest point is about 14%. In addition the display screen of the Asus PA248Q in terms of the overall brightness of the central portion of its screen than the corner portion, the uniformity of the performance in the upper level.

Color temperature consistency and gamma curve optimization

ASUS color temperature consistency test

Next, we carried out is another new project: color temperature consistency test of the purpose of the test is to test at different brightness white point color temperature stability, at any time after the user adjust the monitor's brightness, contrast, and color temperature is not at this time. much change should happen. we are ASUS PA248Q screen brightness is adjusted to 0, 25, 50, 75 and 100, brightness and test all black luminance and chromaticity coordinates, color temperature and contrast the calculated value. under each of the brightness color temperature and contrast ratio does not change is the most ideal.

Color temperature consistency test ASUS PA248Q liquid crystal display

Color temperature consistency, you can see the ASUS PA248Q performance is not very stable, roughly 6500K to 6700K, 6500K is the standard we tested, so the Asus PA248Q at low brightness, the color is very accurate in high brightness, color slightly cool.

ASUS PA248Q liquid crystal display gamma curve optimization

Finally, we look at the ASUS PA248Q liquid crystal display gamma curve optimization how to behave.

ASUS PA248Q liquid crystal display gamma curve optimization

Theoretically two lines completely overlap and form a pair of corner curve is the most ideal. ASUS PA248Q three lines coincide with the basic, only slightly separated at the end of the end, but as a whole has reached a relatively good level.
