BenQ Launch New SW271 Monitor

News Image
BenQ has introduced a new 27" 4K monitor – the SW271 – offering filmmakers colour accuracy through new AQCOLOR technology and high specifications.

A successor to the SW2700PT, the SW271 is an HDR10-enabled monitor that enables users to see their images and videos in a wider dynamic range. BenQ's AQCOLOR technology allows users to have complete colour control over images; it uses a combination of hardware calibration, BenQ's Palette Master Elements software and Technicolor Color Certification, to ensure the monitor meets colour accuracy standards used in Hollywood and the entertainment media.

The SW271 features 99% Adobe RGB, 100% sRGB and Rec. 709. It also displays the DCI-P3 colour space. The SW271 features Delta E≦2, with its true 10-bit IPS panel and advanced 14-bit 3D lookup table (LUT). GamutDuo, meanwhile, enables users to view content simultaneously in different colour spaces side-by-side, and a Hotkey Puck allows users to switch between a variety of modes, such as Adobe RGB, sRGB and Black & White modes.

The monitor features an SD card reader, USB 3.1, USB Type-C, HDMI 2.0, and DisplayPort 1.4 ports, while a detachable shading hood is also included to reduce the monitor's screen glare.

Conway Lee, president, BenQ Corporation, said: "We are proud to present the SW271, which joins our full line of monitors, developed for creative professionals. The SW271 brings users specialised tools and advanced hardware calibration for colour-critical applications. It also has USB-C connectivity for transmitting video and data signals using just one cable for convenience."
