video editors, you can stop lamenting why TV are going Ultra High Definition when the very machine you worked on isn’t cos’ ASUS is going to serve up one massive 31.5″ 4K Ultra HD Monitor (model PQ321) pretty soon and with that, we have reasons to believe the rest of the makers will follow suit in no time. packing in a massive 3,840 x 2,160 pixels, this LED backlit display has an equivalent of 140 ppi and features support for 10-bit RGB ‘deep color’ for “vibrant images with more natural transitions between hues.” it uses Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide (IGZO) instead of the more common amorphous silicon for the active layer of its LCD panel, thus resulting in smaller pixels for sharper and more vivid images.

other goodies include a 176-degree wide viewing angles on both vertical and horizontal planes, a 350 cd/m2 brightness, 8ms gray-to-gray response time, DisplayPort output (US models will get dual HDMI inputs with Picture-by-Picture support), built-in 2W stereo speakers and thickness of just 35mm at its thickest point, making it the current thinnest 4K UHD monitor. pricing and availability are yet to be announced, but who knows? we might be hearing something as COMPUTEX Taipei kicks off this week. in there’s a trio of hi-res images below for you to ogle over.

UPDATE [June 04, 2013]: according to Engadget, this monitor is expected to ship in June for $3,799.
