Driven by BenQ’s AQCOLOR technology and a resolution.
Devoted to meet professional color standards, BenQ has developed AQCOLOR technology to uphold the concept of “accurate reproduction.” BenQ has invited a color expert to lead the team, and also joined ICC (International Color Consortium) and ISO (International Standard Organization) to establish color-related standards and implementation.
Wide Color Gamut Coverage
The BenQ SW270C meets high color standards by covering 99% of Adobe RGB gamut, 100% of sRGB/Rec.709, and 97% of DCI-P3/Display P3, resulting in a more realistic color representation for outdoor and nature photography.
16-Bit Look Up Table
The 16-bit look up table (LUT) improves RGB color blending accuracy, resulting in more accurate color reproduction and Delta E ≤ 2 in Adobe RGB and sRGB color spaces to render a true and representative view of the original image.
10-Bit Color Depth for Smoother Gradations
The SW270C provides smooth color gradations with its 10-bit panel from a 16-bit look up table (LUT) by gamma correction, which shows more than one billion colors for natural color transitions and subtle shading.
Achieved via delicate processes utilizing a high-precision apparatus to fine-tune the color and the brightness at hundreds of sub-regions on the entire screen, BenQ Uniformity Technology offers screen-wide precise color from corner to corner for authentic and consistent viewing experiences.
Consistent Color, Convenient Monitor Usage
In every production line, BenQ has utilized a well-prepared instrument to ensure that monitors from different production lines will display color at same level. Photographers will perceive the consistent color when working on dual monitors.
Hardware Calibration Produces Consistent Image Quality
Hardware calibration allows you to adjust the monitor’s internal image processing chip without changing the graphics card output data, keeping displayed images consistent with the original content without being affected by graphic card setting.
Palette Master Element Calibration Software
With the use of Palette Master Element and a calibrator, you can customize the color setting or maintain the color performance of the monitor.
Professionally Factory Calibrated
BenQ’s SW270C monitor offers the out-of-box color accuracy that guarantees users can enjoy trustworthy color performance.
Display Every Scene with Details
More and more photographers are using digital cameras to capture the moment and to preserve episode in life. The BenQ SW270C adopts HDR and supports various video formats to replay your vivid times dynamically.
HDR Brings More Dynamic Footage
The SW270C is equipped with HDR10 technology so that videographers can preview the HDR effect of the video content during the editing process, helping to ensure desirable outcomes for their final works.
Native Cadence for Film Content
The SW270C supports 24p/25p film content to be displayed at its native cadence without a pulldown which can distort playback of the source video.
Intuitive Designs for Work Efficiency
Photographers would be free from repetitive actions for photo retouching and video editing. BenQ offers customizable designs to boost the work efficiency.
USB Type-C Port
The USB Type-C port provides data transfer speeds up to 5 Gb/s, plus device charging up to 60W, audio, and video via DisplayPort Alt mode. This port will also work with Thunderbolt 3 hosts.
A specially designed detachable shading hood can effectively reduce the monitor’s screen glare from ambient lighting for improved color accuracy.
Advanced Black & White Mode
Color photos are displayed in enhanced black and white film effect. Choose from three different black and white presets to preview your photos before the actual adjustment.
Photo preview is enabled to present the same image in two color gamuts side by side for added comparison.
Hotkey Puck G2
Preferred color modes and features are designated as quick access to widely used settings.
