Sydney, Australia, 06 April 2021- BenQ, internationally renowned provider of digital lifestyle devices, unveiled today PhotoVue SW271C photographer monitor, a 27-inch 4K UHD display with Paper Colour Sync technology for screen-to-photo colour matching. SW271C is the successor to SW271. Featuring exclusive AQCOLOR technology for industry standard colour performance with expertly calibrated screen uniformity and colour consistency, SW271C provides photographers with the ultimate platform for accurate photo editing and reliable reproduction to printed photo output.
“Photographers and videographers rely on visual expression through evocative photography,” said Martin Moelle, Managing Director of BenQ Australia and New Zealand. “SW271C provides the expert colour performance they require with powerful colour management tools, providing paper-matched screen quality to closely simulate printed photography.”
Improving upon today's professional-colour monitors, SW271C employs special panel techniques to further reduce reflection and glare, resulting in a paperlike screen effect that works together with Paper Colour Sync software to ensure photographs look almost the same on screen as well as on paper.
As the flagship display for professional photo retouching, SW271C with AQCOLOR technology provides 99% coverage of Adobe RGB, 95% of DCI-P3 / Display P3 and 100% of sRGB colour spaces. SW271C's 10-bit colour depth and 16-bit 3D lookup table produce pristine colours with Delta E≤2 accuracy, combined with BenQ's uniformity compensation technology for precision across the entire screen. Producing everyday color consistency with onboard hardware color calibration, each SW271C comes with an individualized factory color calibration report and certifications from CalMAN and Pantone.
Supporting photographers and DSLR enthusiasts who work increasingly with video media in addition to photography, SW271C natively supports 24/25/30P video format in 4:2:2/4:2:0/4:4:4 compressed format to avoid jittering caused by 3:2 tear down and bring you better viewing experience (you may make it simple - HDR with 24/25/30P video format support)
SW271C’s GamutDuo function also enables simultaneous side-by-side viewing of the same image in two different colour spaces, such as Adobe RGB and sRGB. And its black and white mode is designed for previewing film effects before adjusting pictures. All of these colour modes can be instantly switched via BenQ's Hotkey Puck G2 to enhance efficiency.
Operating from a single USB-C cable for video, audio, data, and power, SW271C is equipped with a height-adjustable stand and a detachable professional shading hood.
The BenQ SW271C will be priced from AU$2499 (RRP) and will be available in Australia from selected specialised reseller starting mid-late May 2021.
