AOC Graphic Pro U3 Series Monitors

Display specialist AOC proudly announces a new line of monitors meticulously crafted for the unique needs of creative professionals. With exceptional color accuracy, cutting-edge features, and a sleek, award-winning design, the AOC Graphic Pro U3 Series is set to revolutionize the way photographers, visual artists, designers, editors, broadcasters, producers, and gaming industry professionals work. The Graphic Pro U3 line-up introduces three models: two 27" (68.6 cm) displays, the Q27U3CV with QHD resolution, the U27U3CV with 4K UHD resolution, and the larger 31.5" (80 cm) U32U3CV with 4K UHD resolution.

"At AOC, we understand that creative professionals demand the very best tools to bring their visions to life," says Artem Khomenko, Head of Product Management at AOC. "We are beginning a new chapter in AOC's legacy. Our new Graphic Pro U3 Series is the result of our expertise in display technologies and our commitment to delivering high-quality, high-performance monitors that empower creators to push the boundaries of their craft. With exceptional color accuracy, hardware calibration with Calman Ready, versatile USB-C connectivity, and a sleek design, the new Graphic Pro monitors will deliver the perfect tools for content creators and designers."

Top color accuracy and hardware calibration with Calman Ready

The Graphic Pro U3 Series boasts an impressive color accuracy with a Delta E < 2, ensuring that every hue is reproduced with precision. With 98% DCI-P3 color space coverage, these monitors offer a wide color gamut that truly brings visuals to life.

The highlight of the Graphic Pro U3 series is its Calman Ready certification, allowing for direct communication with Portrait Displays' Calman color calibration software. The monitors can leverage the automated calibration capabilities (AutoCal) with the Calman software, allowing for easy, precise and quick calibration of the monitor for pinpoint color accuracy. This calibration allows RGB-triplet control on a scaler level and 1D/3D-LUT profiling for the best image performance. Compared to custom ICC profiles which perform an image adjustment only, the benefit of a 1D/3D LUT (look-up table) solution is a direct display calibration on a hardware level, which improves the color accuracy immensely.

Versatile connectivity and high-performance features

AOC understands the importance of seamless connectivity in creative workflows, where graphic tablets, card readers, fast external drives and other peripherals are commonly used. The Graphic Pro U3 Series comes equipped with a range of ports, including HDMI 1.4/2.0, DisplayPort 1.4, and features a versatile USB-C hub with RJ-45 input. The USB-C hub (with a bandwidth of 10 Gbps with USB 3.2 Gen 2) includes a USB-C upstream port supporting DisplayPort Alt mode to extend the screen, 96 W Power Delivery, Ethernet pass-through, a second USB-C downstream port with 15 W Power Delivery allows connecting additional devices. Finally, 4 USB-A ports complete the hub for connecting additional peripherals. With up to 96 W Power Delivery through USB-C, creators can charge their laptops while transferring data and displaying content simultaneously.

The U27U3CV and U32U3CV feature a third USB-C downstream port for their KVM switch, so the keyboard and mouse connected to their USB hub can be switched back and forth between PCs connected to the monitor's two different USB-C ports.

The Q27U3CV model even features a DisplayPort output and supports DisplayPort's high bandwidth of HBR3 for daisy-chaining multiple monitors to reduce cable clutter.

Bold, audacious design

For creative professionals, a display that is stunning to look at is inspiring, too. All models feature a sleek, modern design that has earned the prestigious Red Dot Design Award 2023, making them a stylish addition to any creative workspace. Featuring a 150 mm height adjustable stand with wide range of tilt, swivel and pivot adjustments, the models are ready for users to find the most comfortable and healthy position. All models come with a recyclable green packaging with paper cushion inside, making the Graphic Pro U3 in line with latest environmental regulations.
