What Makes a Professional Monitor Mac-Ready?

2021/01/27

Have you ever wondered what makes you a Mac-loner? As a professional creative, Macs are always your best pals. Still, finding a perfect external monitor can help you achieve more by providing better tools and platforms for your work. However, is it easy to find one such monitor?

What Makes You a Mac-Loner

To be honest, it’s not easy to find a perfect external monitor for your Mac. Retina displays have raised the bar for monitors, for they offer high resolutions and higher color standards. Therefore, any display with a lower resolution cannot serve as a great external monitor for Macs. Also, Retina displays have fed your eyes with such vibrant and distinct color that they’ve set up a color standard for you. Furthermore, the dominant connection on a Mac is Thunderbolt 3, while most monitors are not equipped with Thunderbolt at all. Without that connection, your Mac is thus forced to add to the cable clutter around your workspace through adapter and extra wires. As most Macs don’t support DisplayPort MST daisy-chaining, a monitor cannot daisy-chain with another without Thunderbolt 3 connectivity for a dual-monitor setup. Taken together, you know pretty well by now that a perfect Mac-compatible monitor has to solve these issues, but displays like that are not easy to find.

BenQ DesignVue Monitors are Mac-Ready

BenQ DesignVue monitors are Mac-compatible monitors created from the get go to perform as Mac-ready, serve Mac users, and offer solutions to the above-mentioned issues.

To expand your Mac, connectivity comes in as the primary concern. BenQ DesignVue monitors are equipped with Thunderbolt 3, making it easy to work on your design quickly, be it audio, video, or data, with one cable. To connect to another monitor, Thunderbolt 3 makes it possible to daisy chain with ease. Also, Thunderbolt 3 connections deliver power. Such single cable convenience eliminates distracting clutter and brings great work efficiency.

To see if your monitor is Mac-ready, you need to find out if it can offer colors that match closely with those on your Mac. Dedicated M-Book Mode is BenQ’s color technology that helps you transition from Mac to BenQ monitor seamlessly. Also, ICCsync synchronizes color profiles between your monitor and your Mac when activated via software. These provide relief from worries about color mismatch and ensure that your monitor and Mac display maintain an excellent match.

Display Pilot is software designed to save time and boost efficiency. It lets you preset multiple monitor settings with a mouse click and offers support tools to make design work more convenient and flexible through an integrated interface. With it, you can work seamlessly with your Mac.

Industrial Design for Macs

Besides these dedicated features and specs, the BenQ PD series is also Mac-ready in the design aspect. Its minimalist look, including stand and base, goes well with your Mac as it keeps a low profile. When you work with your Mac and BenQ monitor, you don’t feel distracted. And the extra space the compact base affords gives you room to place your Mac, leaving you more space for work and contemplation.

Now you know it’s very possible to find a Mac-ready monitor, as there’s certainly a BenQ DesignVue monitor for you.
