The NEC PA322UHD offers 3840 X 2160 UltraHD 4K resolution in a 32-inch form factor using an IGZO technology IPS type LCD panel. It is aimed at professional color-critical users, and the 4 year with 48 hour advanced exchange warranty supports that target market.
True calibration is available with the SpectraView II software, which is included with the measurement device in the BK-SV model.
As a 32-inch display, the pixel density is much friendlier to the eye in terms of making fine detail judgments, as compared to a 24-inch or 27/28-inch 4K display.
4K UHD at 3840 X 2160 s 8.3 megapixels on screen, or more than what most digital cameras offered not so long ago, and most of what many digital cameras offer even in late 2014 (e.g., ~16 megapixel digital cameras like Fujifilm X or Ricoh GR or Leica X2).
The NEC EA244UHD UltraHD 4K display is a sumptuous visual treat for UltraHD 4K video and true high-res images*, far and away the most enjoyable viewing experience your author has experienced as of mid 2014.
8.3 million pixels is a jaw-dropping and intensely enjoyable experience for detailed images. The only downside as with all 4K displays is an aspect ratio of 1.78:1 (more like 1.8 or 1.9:1 with menu bar and window), which doesn’t allow conventional 3:2 or 4:3 images to fit their full height and full width at the same time.
* For over a year now, the diglloyd publications have provided UltraHD examples and UltraHD aperture series. These images viewed in 4K UltraHD on the NEC EA244UHD are enthralling for their never-before-seen detail available at a glance without scrolling. It is a whole new visual experience bettering even the 2880 X 1600 experience of the MacBook Pro with Retina display.
