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 USB-C port delivers 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.
The USB-C port accepts data, video, audio, and power from one cable.
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.
Display Pilot is software which integrates quick and easy access for you to utilize your monitor.
*Desktop Partition: splits your workspace easily without dragging and resizing for various scenarios.
*Print Assist: helps you get a basic idea of what your work will look like on a printed hard copy and preview results compared to the screen.
*Keyboard Hotkey: creates shortcuts to gain access to different color modes, video inputs, and DualView mode without taking your hands off the keyboard.
*Application Mode: helps assign and switch to different color modes for your chosen apps and various projects.
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.
When you edit a video clip, you will enjoy an extended timeline for video editing. This reduces your need to look back and forth due to the enlarged browsing space. In addition, extra screen real estate allows you to personalize your work environment, such as allocating the toolbox, browse references, and compare text at the same time.
A 21: 9 ultra-wide screen allows you to make use of extra screen real estate by splitting it into two: 16:9 and 5:9.
Connect another cable to your device (your laptop is required to have two video outputs) and enable PBP mode in the monitor menu. Your laptop will identify the extra screen space as another monitor: one screen with 2560 x 1440 (QHD) and the other with 880 x 1440 resolution. This gives you unlimited working scenarios based on your needs.
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.
Change the resolution setting according to your laptop operating system:
*MacOS: Go to Apple menu > System Preferences, click Displays, then in Displays Preferences, press “ Options” and click “Scaled” at the same time to unlock the full resolution list and then choose the corresponding resolution.
*Windows: Enter the NVIDIA or AMD Control Panel or Intel UHD Graphics Control Center to set the resolution for each screen.
This relates to Windows resolution settings. When a new resolution is selected, the signal will be output in native resolution and then scaled down to the resolution you choose, leading to a compressed or stretched image.
Below are the solutions:
Dedicated Nvidia/AMD GPU: Go to Display Settings -> Advanced Display Settings -> Display Adapter Properties -> List All Modes, choose a lower resolution, apply it, and then switch back to the resolution for PBP 5:9 again. You will get the correct aspect ratio now.
Intel Integrated GPU: Open the Intel Graphics Control Panel -> Scaling -> Choose "Maintain Display Scaling" -> Click Apply. You will get the correct aspect ratio now.
* To achieve PBP 5:9 when running a single system, make sure that your system supports two video outputs.
Image sticking, also known as image retention or image burn-in, is the term used to describe the phenomenon that a fixed pattern is displayed on the LCD display and remains there over a prolonged period of time.
Go to OSD -> System -> Burn-in Cleaner -> press Yes, and the System will automatically process Burn-in cleaner to clear the fixed pattern. Wait for about 10-15 mins and press any key to exit Burn-in Cleaner. If the image sticking still exists, keep running Burn-In Cleaner until it disappears.
