BenQ is expanding its range of matching Photovue color 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 x 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 SW270C can be easily adapted 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 supplied glare hood can be adapted to portrait format.
The supplied Puck G2 Hotkey, a state-of-the-art OSD controller, functions as a remote control and provides 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. It is thus possible to define the preferred color modes by pressing a button.
The SW270C is equipped with a DisplayPort connector, two HDMI 2.0 ports, three USB 3.1 ports (2 x down, 1 x top), a USB-C port and equipped with a headphone jack and a built-in SD / MMC player. For calibration, BenQ provides its own software Palette Master Element .
BenQ provides the monitor with a three-year warranty, including on-site replacement service. The BenQ PhotoVue SW270C costs 869 euros. For more information, visit the BenQ website.
