Sydney, Australia, September 12, 2013
– BenQ Australia today announced the launch of the Pro Graphics Series, a new range of professional colour management monitors. Featuring G7, Fogra and other printing-industry colour certifications of international ISO standards, as well as a 100% CMYK colour space, 99% Adobe RGB colour space, 14-bit 3D Look-Up-Table and processing and Delta E≤2, brightness uniformity function, the monitors are designed to meet the demanding colour quality expectations of art, design, photography and print-making professionals during the process of colour proofing. Together with Palette Master, the bundled colour calibration software co-developed with X-Rite, a global leader in colour science and technology, these monitors effectively improve design and proofing efficiency and lower the total cost of ownership. This makes them an ideal choice for system houses seeking the perfect hardware and software solution for their clients and printing houses in search for top-performing soft-proofing equipment. For content creators, the new
Pro Graphics Series would also make a great work companion, enabling an effective digital workflow with absolute content colour consistency from design to printing.
“X-Rite is pleased to have collaborated with BenQ’s very talented R&D team to develop the Palette Master software for their new PG2401PT displays. Utilizing i1 core technology with additional functionality for power users, such as validation reporting for G7 and PSO, the PG2401PT delivers a very powerful solution that tackles the industry’s challenges of colour calibration, reproduction accuracy and consistency,” said Steve Miller, Market Manager Imaging and Print of X-Rite. “We believe PG2401PT, combined with an X-Rite i1 Pro series and i1 Display pro device, will truly enhance the user experience and optimize work efficiency for imaging professionals.” “Colour accuracy is the key to reliable soft proofing. Recognizing the crucial importance of managing the proofing process effectively and efficiently, our R&D team have worked hard to identify and tackle aspects of coloration that are the most challenging and meet the most rigorous standardized production printing requirements set by world-leading professional organizations in the process,” said Martin Moelle, Managing Director of BenQ Australia.
