Almost every manufacturer has released 4K monitors by now, but most of the monitors are based on inferior TN panels. Samsung’s new 32” 4K monitor uses a PLS panel and is aimed at video, color and photography professionals.

The monitor was actually exhibited for the first time way back in January of 2014 at CES, but Samsung has now announced the product and released all the specifics.

It is a 31.5” monitor with a 10-bit PLS panel and 3840x2160 pixels. It can reproduce both the AdobeRGB and sRGB color gamuts and has been factory calibrated with a dE<1. Samsung also boasts a 90% light uniformity and a 16-bit LUT (Look-up Table) that takes care of color accuracy before the colors hit your screen.

Samsung says that video professionals can work in the EBU, REC.709, SMPTE-C, DCI and DICOM color gamuts, and that there is an option to split the monitor into two with one color gamuts on each side. Four simultaneous Full HD signals can also be split into four. And don’t worry about long hours at the office, the monitor uses a flicker-free backlight that prevents eye fatigue and headache.

The monitor can be connected to a PC via 2xDisplayPort, DVI or HDMI 1.4, but only DisplayPort will offer 4K resolution at 60Hz.

Samsung U32D970Q is rolling out in Asia right now and is expected to hit Europe and the US within a few months. No price has been announced, but in Korea it is available for around $2000 USD.
