The SW270C Photographer 27inch?16:9 HDR IPS Monitor from BenQ has been built for those who require colour accuracy, with support for 100% of the sRGB and Rec. 709 colour gamuts, 99% of the Adobe RGB colour gamut, 97% of the DCI-P3 and Display P3 colour gamuts, and HDR10. Driven by BenQ's AQCOLOR technology and a resolution of 2560 x 1440 with a 60 Hz refresh rate, the SW270C helps deliver improved accuracy and productivity using 10-bit support for 1.07 billion colours, a 16-bit look up table (LUT) that improves RGB colour blending, and Delta Ea2 in Adobe RGB and sRGB colour spaces for a more representative view of the original image.
The SW270C features In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology, an anti-glare panel coating, a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio, a static contrast ratio of 1000:1, a dynamic contrast ratio of 20M:1, a 300 cd/m2 brightness rating, 109 ppi, and a 5 ms (GtG) response time. Using the 178 horizontal and vertical viewing angles, it is possible to watch content from virtually any position. There are also two HDMI 2.0 inputs, one DisplayPort 1.4 input, and one USB Type-C port that supports DP alt mode, audio, device charging up to 60W, and data transfer speeds up to 5 Gb/s. Additional connectivity is achieved using two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports (downstream) and one USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-B port (upstream). Audio can be output using the 3.5mm headphone jack.
BenQ's BESW270C also supports HDCP 2.2, Picture in Picture (PiP), Picture by Picture (PbP), Advanced Black & White Mode, which lets users preview different black and white presets to preview photos, a GamutDuo Mode, which lets users preview the same photo side by side using two different colour gamuts, native 24p/25p frame rate playback for film and video editors, and more. To further help improve viewing and accessibility, it features a vertical tilt of -5 to 20, a left/right swivel of ?45, a pivot of 90, and a height adjustment of 5.9 inch. It is certified for Mac, Windows 10, 8.1, 8, and 7, Pantone, and CalMAN.
Devoted to meet professional colour standards, BenQ has developed AQCOLOUR technology to uphold the concept of "accurate reproduction." BenQ has invited a colour expert to lead the team, and also joined ICC (International Colour Consortium) and ISO (International Standard Organisation) to establish colour-related standards and implementation.
Wide Colour Gamut Coverage
The BenQ SW270C meets high colour standards by covering 99% of Adobe RGB gamut, 100% of sRGB/Rec.709, and 97% of DCI-P3/Display P3, resulting in a more realistic colour representation for outdoor and nature photography.
16-Bit Look Up Table
The 16-bit look up table (LUT) improves RGB colour blending accuracy, resulting in more accurate colour reproduction and Delta E a 2 in Adobe RGB and sRGB colour spaces to render a true and representative view of the original image.
10-Bit Colour Depth for Smoother Gradations
The SW270C provides smooth colour gradations with its 10-bit panel from a 16-bit look up table (LUT) by gamma correction, which shows more than one billion colours for natural colour transitions and subtle shading.
Achieved via delicate processes utilising a high-precision apparatus to fine-tune the colour and the brightness at hundreds of sub-regions on the entire screen, BenQ Uniformity Technology offers screen-wide precise colour from corner to corner for authentic and consistent viewing experiences.
Consistent Colour, Convenient Monitor Usage
In every production line, BenQ has utilised a well-prepared instrument to ensure that monitors from different production lines will display colour at same level. Photographers will perceive the consistent colour when working on dual monitors.
Hardware Calibration Produces Consistent Image Quality
Hardware calibration allows you to adjust the monitor's internal image processing chip without changing the graphics card output data, keeping displayed images consistent with the original content without being affected by graphic card setting.
Palette Master Element Calibration Software
With the use of Palette Master Element and a calibrator, you can customise the colour setting or maintain the colour performance of the monitor.
Professionally Factory Calibrated
BenQ's SW270C monitor offers the out-of-box colour accuracy that guarantees users can enjoy trustworthy colour performance.
Display Every Scene with Details
More and more photographers are using digital cameras to capture the moment and to preserve episode in life. The BenQ SW270C adopts HDR and supports various video formats to replay your vivid times dynamically.
HDR Brings More Dynamic Footage
The SW270C is equipped with HDR10 technology so that videographers can preview the HDR effect of the video content during the editing process, helping to ensure desirable outcomes for their final works.
Native Cadence for Film Content
The SW270C supports 24p/25p film content to be displayed at its native cadence without a pulldown which can distort playback of the source video.
Intuitive Designs for Work Efficiency
Photographers would be free from repetitive actions for photo retouching and video editing. BenQ offers customisable designs to boost the work efficiency.
USB Type-C Port
The USB Type-C port provides data transfer speeds up to 5 Gb/s, plus device charging up to 60W, audio, and video via DisplayPort Alt mode. This port will also work with Thunderbolt 3 hosts.
A specially designed detachable shading hood can effectively reduce the monitor's screen glare from ambient lighting for improved colour accuracy.
Advanced Black & White Mode
Colour photos are displayed in enhanced black and white film effect. Choose from three different black and white presets to preview your photos before the actual adjustment.
Photo preview is enabled to present the same image in two colour gamuts side by side for added comparison.
