BenQ Boasts World’s First HDR Monitors
BenQ DesignVue Monitors For Creatives Score World’s First
BenQ has announced that its upcoming DesignVue professional design monitors, the PD2705Q and PD3420Q, are the first in the world to have achieved prestigious certifications from CalMAN, Pantone and VESA.
The BenQ DesignVue monitors are aimed explicitly at creatives who rely on exact colour reproduction, HDR quality and precise image clarity.
Featuring IPS HDR panels in 27-inch (PD2705Q) 2560×1440 and 34-inch (PD3420Q) with ultrawide HDR 3440×1440 resolutions, both monitors also boast a 5ms response time, 60Hz refresh rate and built-in speakers.
Embedded with BenQ’s exclusive AQColour Advantage, we’re told that ICC/ISO professional standards are met to deliver detailed precision and assure out-of-the-box Delta E ? 3 colour accuracy. Furthermore, the monitors are said to achieve 100% of industry-standard sRGB and Rec.709 wide colour gamuts. Also, the factory-calibrated displays arrive with a unique calibration report for guaranteed quality for designers relying on exact colour matching.
Additionally, the PD3420Q is HDR-10 compatible, having achieved the prestigious status of VESA DisplayHDR 400. Allowing videographers to preview HDR video content during editing sessions for realistic results in an instant.
You also get nifty presets such as Darkroom Mode to adjust the image brightness and contrast for work in dark environments; M-book Mode to replicate the colour from Mac devices, etc.
Good news if you use multiple input sources and/or multiple screens. BenQ has included KVM switch connectivity enabling smooth switching between two PC inputs on one display with a single mouse and keyboard. We are also promised colour consistency across all screens from different product lines will be displayed at the same level.
Finally, as well as HDMI, DisplayPort and USB connectivity, there is a USB-C port that transmits high-speed video, audio, data and 65W power delivery.
Naturally, the displays also feature BenQ’s exclusive industry-leading Eye-Care technology to reduce eye fatigue via its low blue light, flicker-free and anti-glare features.
We are awaiting confirmed UK pricing and availability details.
