April 2010 – BenQ Australia continue to expand their range of eco-friendly computer monitors incorporating LED technology, affording exceptional and uncompromised picture quality along with significant energy savings in Full HD, 16:9, 1080p resolution. Matching these operational advantages and providing the consumer with greater aesthetic choice, the V2420H and V2420HP -recipients of the prestigious iF product design awards, 2010 (Germany) - are thought to be the world’s slimmest LED monitors.
Further extending the company’s award winning Eco series, the V2410 is also being released – this model is designed for corporate use and is height adjustable for added versatility and comfort.
These three new V Series models will be available from April, 2010.
BenQ’s new LED monitors are stylishly presented in glossy black but they’re green to the core - from the energy savings they provide to the way the product is packaged utilizing 80% recycled material. Unlike traditional CCFL technology used in traditional LCD monitors, both V2410 and V2420 series monitors use energy efficient LED backlighting. In comparison to a CCFL monitors, these new panels consume around 44% less power; and up to 71% less whilst used in BenQ’s exclusive ‘Eco’ mode. Even the shell of the new V Series monitors is produced from 28% recycled plastic, giving the product a distinct environmental edge.
LED monitors offer further benefits such as a higher dynamic contrast, no light leakage for improved display of dark scenes, instant-on capability and due to LED being a stable light source the monitors are flicker-free which eases eye strain over long periods of use. They not only cost less to run but their manufacture is 100% free of mercury which is yet another environmental advantage and makes the product highly recyclable at end of life. Slimmer and lighter, the compact LED range also cut CO2 emissions by improving loading capacity for more efficient shipping and transportation.
The new monitors offer full 1080p High-Definition (HD) at 16:9 aspect ratio providing the perfection of uncompressed images. Further enhanced with BenQ’s Senseye® Human Visual Technology using its six proprietary calibration techniques, the monitors are able to produce uncompromised, crystal clear visuals.
Said Chee F. Chung, General Manager for BenQ Australia, “The new V2410 provides an amazing 5,000,000:1 ultra-high contrast ratio, while the new ultra-slim 15mm thick V2420 Series provides an amazing 10,000,000:1 ultra-high dynamic contrast ratio. This equates to picture quality that is brighter and more balanced, but most impressively, they cost significantly less to run than their predecessors.
“As with lighting generally, LED technology is the revolutionary way forward for display monitors and televisions offering a reduction in power consumption, more balanced display properties, a longer lifespan and lighter weight. LED is the green choice, and this in combination with a thin design, sharp picture and lower voltage will see LED become mainstream technology as both the global economy and policy makers are driving energy efficient appliances and devices with green initiatives to reduce global warming issues,” she said.
