COSTA MESA, Calif. — Jan. 14, 2014 — BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned provider of professional graphics monitors, today announced the appointment of FineEye Color Solutions of Grand Rapids, Mich., as an official distributor for the BenQ Professional Graphics (PG) series of certified color management monitors. Following the successful launch of the PG2401PT in Sept. 2013, BenQ is extending its commitment to serving digital imaging, graphics, and print media professionals with superior products and support.
FineEye Color Solutions is the result of a Sept. 2009 merger between Chromaticity Inc. of Grand Rapids and FineEye Color Solutions of Mountain View, Calif. Chromaticity was founded in 1997 as a color technology professional services provider serving the printing and publishing industry. FineEye Color Solutions was formed as a software start-up to deliver the first truly user-simple and press-reliable solution to complex color reproduction challenges still widely encountered in today's commercial print production. With its deep roots in inkjet media and the color reproduction process, FineEye Color Solutions provides revolutionary new core technology offering sales, marketing, support, and distribution expertise to the print and graphics industry.
"FineEye Color Solutions' experience and expertise in proofing and color management is world class," said Bob Wudeck, Associate Vice President, Strategy and Business Development at BenQ America Corp. "They have an excellent track record in helping launch new color technologies to the graphics industry and we're looking forward to a mutually beneficial partnership as we raise awareness of our new PG Series of monitors purposely built for the creative class."
Made specifically for creative professionals such as photographers, graphic designers, color retouchers, and printers requiring accurate and consistent on-screen color matching, the new BenQ PG Series provides reliable, printing-certified soft proofing precision at an incredibly affordable price. The self-calibrating PG2401PT 24-inch monitor covers 100 percent CMYK, 99 percent of the Adobe® RGB color space, and is designed to take advantage of today's most popular cloud-based color proofing services, such as Adobe's Creative Cloud™ and PantoneLIVE™. To further ensure that on-screen colors visually match off-the-press colors for accurate reproduction, the PG2401PT is FograCert Softproof Monitor certified, as well as SWOP® and GRACoL® certified by the IDEAlliance®.
"The BenQ PG series monitors make color-accurate soft proofing truly affordable and reliable," said Peder Nelson, President of FineEye Color Solutions. "We are excited to represent and promote BenQ in the U.S. market, and champion what we have termed the Soft Proofing 2.0 movement. From the photographer, to the designer and color retoucher, and all the way to the press, everyone in the supply chain will be viewing color the same way, eliminating costly and time consuming intermediate proofs."
Available now at $999, BenQ's PG2401PT monitor includes a free hood and is offered with the X-Rite® Pro calibrator.
