BenQ Monitors for Professional Photography

For photography professionals, BenQ will show its 32-inch SW320 4K UHD high dynamic range (HDR) monitor. It will also demo its 27-inch SW2700PT QHD display, which won TIPA’s Best Photo Monitor of 2016.

Both the SW320 and SW2700PT offer 99% Adobe RGB, 100% sRGB and Rec. 709 spaces to deliver color reproduction via tools for hardware calibration. The SW series of photography monitors “offer unparalleled technology and have been built to reproduce images with the same precise detail in which they are captured, delivering true-to-life image quality,” said Hu.

BenQ Monitors for Video Postproduction

For video postproduction professionals, the company will exhibit its new Technicolor Color Certified, 27-inch QHD PV270 and 32-inch PV3200PT 4K UHD monitors. With 10-bit, 100% Rec. 709/sRGB color spaces, the PV series video postproduction monitors enable professionals to view one billion accurately displayed colors.

All SW and PV color-management monitors reproduce color tones with a Delta-E value of less than or equal to two. A 14-bit 3D LUT aids in achieving an accurate color mixture for improved RGB color blending. This is said to result in “impeccable color and gray tone reproduction.”

BenQ Monitors for Graphic Design

For graphic design creatives, the Technicolor Color-Certified PD3200U and PD2700Q offer features to maximize workflow efficiency. Showing for the first time, the 32-inch PD3200U boasts 4K UHD resolution. The 27-inch PD2700Q displays 2K QHD resolution. A 32-inch QHD version (PD3200Q) is also planned for release in January 2017.

In addition, these devices feature 10-bit depths of color, 100% sRGB and Rec. 709 to represent a wider range of more than one billion colors. The panels expand the working space to provide a wider viewing angle (178º in horizontal as well as vertical planes).

Three display modes are tailor-made for designers to configure settings to best fit their preferences. These include a dark room mode for dimmed environments, a CAD/CAM mode for superior image contrast, and an animation mode with 10 levels of display brightness to enhance details in dark shadows.

Furthermore, each monitor offers DualView capabilities to permit users to divide the monitor for side-by-side window viewing. Designers can use window multitasking with BenQ’s optional Display Pilot software. Display Pilot was developed to provide enhanced desktop partition for multi-application viewing.
