BenQ’s is releasing a monitor series that combines a selection of high-end features for incredibly reliable colour accuracy, fidelity consistency, and seamless compatibility with today’s DSLR cameras. Designed to facilitate the way photographers work with colour, the SW2401PT also enables easy hardware calibration, 14-bit 3D LUT, Delta E < 2 calibration in Adobe RGB and sRGB modes, a Black-and-White mode, and more.
The screen is 24" (listed as 24" in press release but we believe it to be 23.8" in fact) in size and features a 2560 x 1440 resolution. It's AHVA panel (IPS-type) offers a wide gamut backlight covering 99% Adobe RGB. Other specs are not listed at the moment but we do know that the screen is flicker free as with all new BenQ models which is good news. This is joined by a high 2560 x 1440 resolution and very thin bezels.
Designed specifically for today’s digital photographers, BenQ’s QHD 2560x1440 SW2401PT professional photography monitor includes a 99-percent Adobe RGB color gamma to provide a greater range of color reproduction for shades of blue and green, while hardware calibration allows users to fine-tune the device’s image-processing chip without replacing the graphics card output data — ensuring that every photo is displayed smoothly and consistently, exactly as it was taken. Equipped with two preset calibration modes, the SW2401PT provides a 14-bit 3D Look Up Table (LUT) and DeltaE<2 in both Adobe RGB and sRGB color spaces, enabling a more authentic view of original images. The SW2401PT also comes with BenQ’s Palette Master calibration software, which can be used with a calibrator to optimize color performance.
Featuring four times the pixel resolution of FHD devices and nearly 77-percent more working space, the 24-inch SW2401PT gives photographers an incredibly versatile screen area while the monitor’s OSD controller puts easy remote configuration directly onto the user’s hand. As a result, the SW2401PT can be customized to click through display settings for applications such as photo editing, web surfing, or word processing software. To facilitate the photo editing process even further, the SW2401PT comes equipped with a Black-and-White mode which allows users to easily edit and view black and white photos without losing any facets of the details or tones of the original photograph.
To increase viewer comfort during long periods of computer use, the SW2401PT integrates BenQ’s RevolutionEyes™ technology. Featuring ZeroFlicker™ capabilities, the monitor uses a new direct lighting system engineered to eliminate flicker issues caused by backlight controllers. As a result, the eye-comfort technology enhances productivity and reduces visual fatigue by eliminating monitor flickering at all brightness levels.
The BenQ’s SW2401PT is available now and retails at $499.
