Acer has launched its newest monitor, the Acer ProDesigner BM320. The large 32-inch display produces vivid 4K Ultra HD visuals with professional-grade colour at a 3,840 x 2,160 resolution and 60 Hz refresh rate. It’s now available to purchase starting at US$1,299 (AU$1,759).

To make sure that its new monitor provides consistent colour output as well as sharper and unblemished visuals, Acer equipped the BM320 with the company’s ColourPlus technology suite. The enhancements include built-in 100 percent coverage on both Adobe RGB and sRGB for packing, producing and presenting an extensive and precise array of hues needed for colour matching across applications and print output.

The ProDesigner BM320 offers the ability to fine-tune hue and saturation settings using 6-axis colour adjustment, so professionals get the exact shade they want. The monitor’s so-called “super sharpness technology” also optimises the quality of low-res images by slightly enhancing the edges.

“Video editors and directors can work with confidence with 100 percent of Rec. 709 and 90 percent DCI-P3 colour coverage, the standard format for HDTVs,” says Acer. “It ensures that every hue is authentically represented, critical for video editors during post-production work and animators dealing with colour-critical projects.”

The ProDesigner monitor has support for 10-bit colour, providing considerably more colour depth compared to conventional 8-bit displays. It’s also pre-calibrated and tested from the factory to guarantee a Delta E<1 colour accuracy with clear-cut hues. Moreover, colour and brightness consistency are maintained across the screen thanks to integrated uniformity compensation.

The Acer monitor has adequate connectivity options including DVI, HDMI v2.0, DisplayPort v1.2, Mini DisplayPort and USB 3.0 hub (1 up / 4 down). It also comes with a couple of 2W speakers.

The BM320 sports a sleek ZeroFrame design that disregards the screen’s bezel for maximum and seamless viewing in multiple display setups. The IPS panel provides wide viewing angles at 178 degrees both vertically and horizontally. The display is also quite adjustable thanks to Acer’s ErgoStand.

“Users [can] easily swivel (+/- 45 degrees), tilt (-5 to 25 degrees), pivot (+/- 90 degrees) and alter the height (up to 5.9 inches) to find the optimum viewing position and it also comes with a VESA mount for hanging it on the wall to save space,” declares the Taiwanese hardware and electronics company. “Integrated AcerVisionCare includes Acer Flicker-less, BlueLightShield, Low Dimming and ComfyView technologies, which can reduce screen glare, flicker and blue light for more comfortable viewing, critical during long work days.”

The Acer ProDesigner BM320 monitor is now available in the US starting at US$1,299 (AU$1,759). It comes with a three-year warranty that includes next business day advance exchange as well as free shipping and toll-free support. Australian pricing and release details have yet to be announced.
