Asus has introduced three new portable monitors, primarily for content creators who travel a lot. The Asus ZenScreen MQ13AH is the first portable 13.3-inch OLED monitor. The narrow ProArt display PA147CDV rather serves as a digital drawing board with 1,920 × 550 pixels.

According to Asus “world’s first 13-inch portable OLED monitor“Provides 1,920 × 1,080 pixels on a 13.3 inch diagonal. Thanks to OLED technology, the contrast ratio should reach 1,000,000: 1 and thus offer advantages over LCDs, especially for HDR content. As with the larger MQ16AH variant with its 15.6-inch OLED panel, the large DCI-P3 color space should be covered 100 percent. The color deviation (Delta E) should be less than 2. Both variants are intended for content creators, among others, and have a tripod connection and a “SmartCase” that serves both as a screen protector and as a stand with flexible alignment.

The MQ13AH is already described in more detail: The portable monitor, which is only 5 mm thin at the flattest point, should weigh around 500 grams. It has three USB Type-C ports, two of which support DisplayPort Alt mode, while the third allows charging via USB-C. A proximity sensor is also built in, which automatically increases the brightness when a person is present or decreases it when there is no user in the vicinity.

With the ProArt PQ22UC, Asus has a much larger portable monitor in its range with around 22 inches in 16: 9, which costs almost 5,000 euros with UHD resolution. No prices are available for today’s new product launches. Asus will not announce this and information on availability until later.

Portable LCD in 32: 9 format

The ProArt Display PA147CDV, on the other hand, is equipped with classic LCD technology (IPS panel). It has a special format for this: 1,920 × 550 pixels mean an aspect ratio of 32: 9. The 14-inch display is not a classic monitor, because it serves as a digital drawing board with 10-point touch controls and MPP 2.0 support for input pens. For example, the display can be used as a second screen on the notebook for Photoshop projects. Delta E <2, 100 percent sRGB and 100% Rec. 709 are mentioned with regard to the color representation. A certification for the Calman color system (Calman Verified) is also being examined.
