The AQCOLOR brand of professional monitors is well established amongst photographers and designers thanks to its superior color accuracy and performance. Our secret to producing outstanding professional monitors has always been listening to the feedback of our users and experts, and incorporating them into our upcoming products. In this particular sense, the need for more screen real estate seems to be a common need amongst photographers, designers, and videographers a like.

It is precisely this common request that has driven us to create the newest member of the AQCOLOR family of professional monitors, the PD3420Q. Bringing along other professional-tested, time-proven features like wide color gamut up to P3 98%, uniformity compensation, and factory calibrated color accuracy; we now provide an ultra-wide, 21:9 aspect ratio screen ideal for those with the need for extra artboards or longer timelines for video editing.

More working area

The newest AQCOLOR monitor PD3420Q offers 30% more screen area thanks to its 21:9 ultra-wide aspect ratio. When compared to traditional 16:9 screens, it allows to work on more things side-by-side comfortably. Whether you are looking to visualize more artboards in illustrator or have a longer timeline when editing videos, those additional pixels boost your productivity and creativity. Never again will you need to minimize a window to look at a sketch or other references when working on your latest masterpiece.

As a member of the PD-series of designer’s monitors, the PD3420Q is capable of 100% sRGB color coverage which is ideal for web and graphic design. Additionally, it covers 98% of the DCI-P3 color space making it an excellent choice for video creation as well. As visual-oriented professionals, designers and videographers will surely appreciate the extra space this monitor provides in addition to the AQCOLOR guarantee of accurate colors out-of-the-box. Moreover, uniformity compensation across the screen is also a standard feature of our professional monitors, which means that color and brightness are more even and offers a more reliable color workflow.

All creators are invited

Through its USB-C connection, the PD3420Q is capable of performing 16:9 + 5:9 PBP (picture-by-picture) for a simulated, dual monitor experience. Using this feature, your computer will see the monitor as two screens, one with a standard 16:9 aspect ratio and a secondary one with a 5:9 ratio, allowing you to run two full-screen apps just like using separate monitors. On screen, the single, ultra-wide panel will display both signals side-by-side, for a true seamless experience down to the pixel-level that no dual-monitor setup could provide. Say goodbye to the bezels.

This set of features will be appreciated by YouTube creators and online streamers alike. Whether you want the extra wide screen to see more of your timeline while editing your next video. Or you prefer to stream while playing in a full 16:9 screen while keeping the streaming panel on the sideview 5:9 at all times. The BenQ PD3420Q ultra-wide screen is ideal for video content creators.
