BenQ Reveals PV Series Video Post-Production Monitors

News Image
BenQ has announced high-end PV series monitors for advanced cinematic and video post-production.

For editors and colourists that demand uncompromising colour accuracy and high resolution, the PV3200PT and PV270 commercial monitors fit the bill for video editing, visual effects, and colour correction and management.

The PV3200PT is BenQ's first monitor designed specifically with video post-production engineers in mind. Ideal for video production, this wide-angle 32" IPS monitor features high 4K UHD (3840x2160 pixel) resolution to scrutinize images to the finest details.

The PV3200PT's colour gamut covers 100% Rec.709 and 100% sRGB. This monitor includes hardware calibration support and includes the Palette Master Element calibration software to adjust the monitor's colour gamut, white point, colour temperature and luminance, among other settings. With hardware calibration and a 14-bit 3D LUT, an average Delta E≦1.5 is achieved to deliver high colour accuracy and reproduction for a true representation of the original storytelling images.

An optional Software Development Kit (SDK) allows studios or calibration software provider to be more involved in customizing colour calibration settings. The brightness uniformity feature maintains the monitor's display performance by ensuring even brightness throughout the display. An included OSD controller provides user-friendly tactile control over the on-screen menu for additional convenience and efficiency.

The feature-rich PV270 is a blockbuster 27" IPS professional monitor with QHD (2560 x 1440 pixel) resolution with expansive colour spaces covering 100% Rec.709, 96% DCI-P3 and 99% Adobe RGB required in digital cinematic video post-production and photo retouching.

With Technicolour Colour Certified certification, the PV270's display luminance, colour gamut, and gamma are Hollywood-ready. Moreover, the X-Rite powered Palette Master calibration software assists hardware calibration for conformance to artists' requirements, taking the suspense out of the final picture.

As with the PV3200PT, the PV270's optional SDK allows further colour calibration customization. Extreme colour accuracy with average Delta E≦1.5 should inspire confidence for colourists to produce the best pictures possible with precise colour consistency across the entire production workflow. With 24P support, videos can be viewed with correct timing at their native cinematic frame rates.

Several features set the high quality PV270 apart from its competition allowing convenience and to increase work efficiency. The built-in backlight sensor quickly stabilizes the monitor's brightness while the brightness uniformity feature maintains consistent brightness across the viewing surface. The GamutDuo function allows artists to simultaneously review images on-screen side-by-side from two sources using two different colour standards (e.g. Rec.709 and DCI-P3). With film production expanding to worldwide collaborative efforts, the PV270's Colour Display Clone software can be used to detect differences in ambient light to automatically adjust the displayed colour temperature for consistent colour performance across remote offices and environments.

The PV270 also includes a monitor hood to reduce reflections on the screen's surface and mitigate display contrast to improve conditions for image retouching and soft proofing.
