AQCOLOR is BenQ's unique color technology to deliver accurate colors from its professional monitors to its respective users. "Colors You Can Trust" is the goal that BenQ would like its users to experience from color-critical monitors to the services it provides.
BenQ color specialists fine-tune the color and brightness of monitors to provide scene-wide precise colors.
Yes. The monitor's Thunderbolt3 port delivers up to 65W which is sufficient for Windows laptops, MacBook, and MacBook Pro.
Check with your laptop manufacturer to make sure your USB-C port offers DisplayPort Alt Mode compatibility and power delivery support.
If you need to use the daisy chain function, you may need to buy another longer Thunderbolt 3 cable (20/40G) to daisy chain your two Thunderbolt 3 monitors and connect your laptop to the first monitor with the included Thunderbolt 3 cable (40G). As Apple Silicon Macs don’t support daisy-chaining functionality, such as MacBook Air/Pro 2021 and Mac mini 2021, it means you can only connect a single monitor to your Mac at a time. Make sure that the source device (laptop/PC) should be Thunderbolt 3/4 output, and the cables Thunderbolt 3/4 certificated.
Since the colors of a MacBook Pro are recognized as a standard among Mac users, BenQ has developed a new M-Book mode to simulate the color specs of MacBook Pro on our monitors. Switch to M-Book Mode to make your BenQ monitor emulate a MacBook Pro.
Delta E is often used to evaluate perceived color differences. A delta of less than 1.00 means that there is no perceivable difference for color experts when two colors are compared side by side, while a delta greater than 3.00 means that there is no significant difference an average person could perceive.

An ICC profile is a set of data that characterizes a color input or output device and defines the color gamuts displayed by these devices. ICC Sync is a function included in the Display Pilot software that allows PD series monitors to simplify the color mapping process by syncing ICC profiles of the output and source device to get accurate color settings.
P3 is a common color space for digital movie projection created for the American film industry. The P3 color space has a much wider gamut of colors than standard RGB. This means that our displays can show more colors than a regular RGB device, which brings you true-to-life images and videos.
Hotkey Puck G2 has 3 function keys and a rotation key, allowing users to designate their preferred color modes and features as shortcuts to widely used settings. And the dial makes it easy to adjust the brightness, contrast, and volume.
Connect Computer 1 with a USB-C cable and Computer 2 with a video cable and USB upstream cable. Then your monitor will identify the Computer 1 and Computer 2 automatically with the video source and the USB signal it detects and receives. Once this is done, when you switch the input video source from Computer 1 to Computer 2, your monitor will also switch the USB signal to Computer 2.
From MacOS 10.15.4 on, High Dynamic Range is automatically enabled when your HDR supported Mac detects HDR-capable monitors. And since some BenQ monitors would automatically detect HDR content, they can only display HDR mode and cannot switch to other modes.
To switch to other color modes, you need to turn off “High Dynamic Range” first. Go to Apple Menu > System Preferences > Displays > uncheck High Dynamic Range to turn it off.
