A New BenQ monitor with Full Colour Control
BenQ has launched a new monitor designed for professional photographers who need both high resolution and extremely accurate colors: the 27″ SW271. This model builds upon the company’s previous SW2700PT display, offering support for HDR10 alongside a 4K 3840 x 2160 resolution and the maker’s AQCOLOR technology.
With the AQCOLOR tech, users are given total control over the display’s color via hardware calibration and the maker’s Palette Master Elements software. The inclusion of advanced hardware color calibration helps enable the SW271 to meet strict color accuracy standards, according to BenQ, which says its display is ideal for “color-critical applications.”
Users have the option of viewing content simultaneously in different color spaces via GamutDuo, plus there’s a Hotkey Puck for toggling between the monitor’s various modes, including: 99% Adobe RBG coverage, 100% sRGB/Rec. 709 coverage, 93% DCI-P3 coverage, plus a Black & White option.
Monitor connectivity includes DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0; there’s also an SD card reader, USB-C, and a USB 3.1 port. The shade featured in the above image is included with the monitor and can be removed. The monitor is available now for $1,100 USD.
