BenQ Expands its range of Photovue Color Assorted Monitors for Image Editors and Graphic Designers with a new 27-inch model covering 99% of the Adobe RGB color space and 100% of the sRGB color space . The hardware-calibrated BenQ SW270C includes a 16-bit 3D lookup table (LUT) and a 16: 9 IPS panel with a WQHD resolution of 2560 × 1440 pixels. The 10-bit panel can display up to 1.07 billion different shades. The manufacturer promises a homogeneous distribution of colors and brightness across the entire surface of the screen.
The BenQ PhotoVue SW270C easily adapts to the sitting position of the viewer. The monitor foot is infinitely adjustable to a height of 150 mm. It is possible to rotate the screen on both sides up to 45 degrees and tilt between -5 and +20 degrees. For the pivot function, the included anti-glare hood can be adjusted to portrait format.
The supplied keyboard shortcut, Puck G2, a state-of-the-art OSD controller, functions as a remote control and allows for comfortable and intuitive switching between different modes. These include Gamut Duo mode for side-by-side color comparisons or different color modes such as sRGB, AdobeRGB and DCI-P3. Thus, the preferred color modes can be set by pressing a button.
The SW270C is equipped with a DisplayPort connector, two HDMI 2.0 ports, three USB 3.1 ports (2 × down, 1 x top), a USB-C port, a headphone jack and a integrated SD / MMC reader. For calibration, BenQ provides its own software Master element palette ready.
BenQ provides the monitor with a three-year warranty, including on-site replacement service. The BenQ PhotoVue SW270C costs 869 euros. More information can be found on the BenQ website.
