TAIPEI, TAIWAN, October 30th, 2013 – BenQ, a world-leading human technology and solutions provider and professional gaming monitor pioneer, unveiled today the XL2720Z, its exciting new 27” professional gaming monitor designed and built with all the BenQ's exclusive visual clarity enhancement innovations for FPS action-oriented gaming, from Gaming Refresh Rate Optimization Management (GROM) and Flicker-free Technology to the latest additions: Motion Blur Reduction technology and Low Blue Light technology. Once again testifying to its unyielding belief of "Gaming Is in the Detail", BenQ is the first to bring the critical factors for gaming triumph – striking visual clarity, seamless fluidity and great gaming comfort – to hardcore gamers and gaming enthusiasts around the world.
"The new XL2720Z and the industry-leading features that it comes with is a true and proud manifesto of our vision of professional gaming at its best and of our actions taken to realize that vision," said Peter Chen, General Manager of BenQ's Technology Product Center. "Motion Blur Reduction may yet to be a new concept to the gaming world, but no doubt it is the best-to-date perfection of LCD displays in gaming action. Gamers will find the clear difference we aim to deliver in game play clarity and fluidity once they get their hands on the XL2720Z."
The XL2720Z is the world's first professional gaming monitor to adopt Motion Blur Reduction, BenQ's latest technological innovation uniquely designed with the consideration of the resolution, response time and refresh rate of a monitor and how the three most crucial elements in determining a gamer's performance work together to achieve an ultra-smooth, blur-free gaming experience. For a long time, gamers have been reluctant to switch from CRT screens to regular LCD displays, being concerned with the delay in refresh rate, or the change of pixel colors from scene to scene, which for fast-paced FPS games would mean the difference between victory and defeat. With this technology, gamers would have the reaction time advantage they seek to make the perfect kill and compete or practice comfortably and confidently with improved vision quality. Motion Blur Reduction works to support a range of resolutions and refresh rates to provide cleaner, sharper video quality on the display.
The new Low Blue Light technology, also introduced with the XL2720Z, is incorporated to provide gamers with top-notch vision condition that allows them to practice long hours or compete fiercely with clear, comfortable vision. The technology successfully manages the harmful blue spectrum light emitted from regular computer screens through an offering of various adjustable low blue light levels to help gamers better protect their eyes, as prolonged viewing may lead to eyestrain, eye damage and headaches. Game play can be clear and comfortable.
The XL2720Z, like the award-winning XL2420T and XL2411T, offers gamers the freedom to custom-build their personal gaming computers with GROM, a management system that collaborates with the Display Mode and Smart Scaling feature to enable customization of viewing preferences, from refresh rates (100/120/144Hz), display resolutions to screen sizes. A highly personalized FPS gaming experience, more so than anything else, empowers gamers with an accurate sense of control, accuracy and ease.
Another mention-worthy feature would be the Gaming-Comfort Flicker-free technology designed to eliminate backlight flickering at all brightness levels, ensuring the eye comfort of a professional gamer that spends on an average of 8 to 12 hours a day to sharpen their gaming skills.
The XL2720Z will be available worldwide in November 2013. For more information, please visit www.BenQ.com and Gaming.BenQ.com.
