BenQ boosts colour accuracy on flagship photographer monitor The SW320 supports HDR signals through both its HDMI and DisplayPort inputs.

BenQ has launched a new photographer monitor- the SW320- that boasts a 31.5-inch 4K display with enhanced colour detail and High Dynamic Range (HDR) capability.

Spanning a wide colour gamut covering 99% of Adobe RGB and 100% of sRGB, Rec. 709, and the digital cinema industry’s DCI-P3 colour space, SW320’s true 10-bit IPS panel and 14-bit lookup table (LUT) deliver spectacular colour quality.

Augmenting its 31.5-inch IPS panel with 4K UHD 3840 x 2160 resolution and 178˚ H/V viewing angles, SW320 features the following colour technologies:

99% Adobe RGB Colour Gamut and Technicolor Colour Certification: SW320 delivers an ultra-wide colour gamut to reach 99% of Adobe RGB, a significantly larger colour space than sRGB and Rec. 709. Also, supporting DCI-P3 as well as 100% of sRGB and Rec. 709, SW320 is certified by Technicolor to meet strict standards for colour accuracy used in Hollywood and throughout the media and entertainment industries, with consistent, precise colour exactly as content originators intended.

High Dynamic Range (HDR) content support: Increasing the dynamic range between black and white for naturally realistic images, SW320 supports HDR signals through both its HDMI and DisplayPort inputs.

True 10-Bit Colour Depth, 14-Bit 3D LUT, ΔE ≤ 2: Producing over a billion colours for ultra-smooth gradations, SW320’s 14-bit colour lookup table guarantees colour accuracy as defined by Comission Internationale de l’Eclairge’s (CIE) Delta E deviation of less than 2, designating the finest colour fidelity exceeding the limits of human vision.

Palette Master Element Colour Calibration: SW320 can be hardware calibrated with a colorimeter and Palette Master Element calibration software for professional work.

Brightness Uniformity Function: For an authentic and consistent viewing experience, SW320 achieves brightness uniformity across the entire screen via a fine-tuning process of hundreds of sub-regions with high-precision apparatus.

GamutDuo and Advanced Black and White Modes: GamutDuo Mode allows simultaneous side-by-side display of content in two different colour spaces, such as Adobe RGB and sRGB. Photos can also be viewed in a black and white film effect, with three presets for photo previews prior to post-processing adjustments

Hotkey Puck and Pro Shading Hood: The “Hotkey Puck” remote control enables instant switching between colour modes and image settings, and the included detachable shading hood works in both portrait and landscape orientations to block ambient light and glare for better colour accuracy.

Finished in a minimalist bezel and adjustable stand design engineered to reduce reflection, SW320 provides various connectivity options including a media card reader, USB 3.0 ports, HDMI 2.0a, and DisplayPort / miniDisplayPort 1.4 supporting Mac Thunderbolt output.
