Asus has announced a new model in its ProArt line aimed at professional users. The ProArt PA148CTV is the second portable ProArt display after the 4K OLED 22 inch PQ22UC. Its anti-reflective IPS touch panel, pre-calibrated at the factory with a color accuracy of Delta E < 2 and Calman verified, has a FullHD (1,920 x 1,080) resolution and covers 100% of both the sRGB and Rec.709 color spaces.

Since it can be connected to a computer via USB-C, a single cable is sufficient for both video connection and power. In total, the PA148CTV has two USB-C (with DP Alt mode) ports and a Micro HDMI input. The mobile monitor can also be mounted on a tripod via an integrated tripod thread, allowing it to serve as a control monitor on set, for example. Alternatively, it can be placed on a table via the adjustable kickstand.
The ProArt PA148CTV can be used as a mobile secondary display for a notebook as well as a control panel for various creative programs such as Adobe&s Photoshop, Lightroom Classic, Premiere Pro and After Effects using its capacitive 10-point multi-touch screen via ASUS Dial and Virtual Control Panel. The virtual control panel features a dial, sliders, buttons, knobs, and programmable hotkeys for more detailed and precise settings.

ASUS Dial is a physical dial on the back of the display that lets users use compatible Adobe software and Microsoft Surface Dial controls, allowing quick adjustments while focused on a task. The integrated on-screen display (OSD) controller allows for easy monitor adjustments. Users can use the pre-installed ProArt preset software to adjust the color gamut, or use the ProArt palette to access other display settings.
The ASUS ProArt PA148CTV weighs 740 g and is expected to hit the market before the end of the first quarter of 2021 - its price is not yet known.
