Display specialist AOC has launched a 31.5” (80 cm) professional UHD display designed by Studio F. A. Porsche that also acts as a 65W USB-C charging hub.
The U32U1 frameless 4K UHD display is aimed at design professional as well as home users. The IPS 3840 x 2160 pixel display uses the VESA DisplayHDR 600 standard for 10bit colour depth resulting in 1.07 billion colours. This covers 135% of the sRGB, 100% of the AdobeRGB and 98% of the DCI-P3 colour spaces for video and photography professionals and enthusiasts as well as for designers.
Besides the DisplayPort 1.4 connector, this monitor also features an HDMI 2.0 as well as a USB-C port and a USB 3.2 hub. The USB-C connection provides DisplayPort Alternate Mode for transferring high-resolution video signals from a notebook or other computer. USB Power delivery can simultaneously charge the notebook battery with up to 65 W, and the USB 3.2 data transmission ensures fast data transfer.
With people’s changing perception of work and private life, they increasingly question the strict differentiation of products targeted at professional and personal use. The design of the U32U1 reflects this. It aims at users with high aesthetical requirements and draws on trends in classical furniture design. The tubular-shaped tripod stand creates visual lightness and lets it stand out in any environment and usage context.
The 4-sided frameless, slim, tiltable and swivellable display sits on its shiny metal tripod stand, which is height-adjustable to 120 mm. The aluminium back-plate with rounded corners also houses the cable connectors. This plate remains in the same position when the display is rotated into portrait position (pivot function) so the cables stay in the same place as well. For increased flexibility, the display also comes with a VESA grid for mounting on external stands or wall mounts.
“The perfect combination of state-of-the-art technology and outstanding design is what makes our new monitors developed in cooperation with Studio F.
