Simulated 10-bit and Low Delta E: BenQ’s Prosumer Monitor

BenQ’s newest monitor is the SW2401PT, recently shown at Photokina in Germany, for high end amateur and professional photographers.

There is an emphasis on colour fidelity, with a 14-bit lookup table and an IPS panel, supporting both 99% Adobe RGB and the sRGB colour gamuts. Hardware calibration means that changes to the image settings are stored in the monitor, rather than the attached PC. The Delta E of the monitor is < 2. Although the monitor’s colour is 8-bit, it can simulate 10-bit colour.

BenQ’s eye-care technology enables flicker-free and low blue light modes. Tilt (-5 deg to 20 deg ), swivel (45 deg left and right), pivot (90 deg ) and height adjust (140mm) functions are supported.

The 23.8″ monitor has 2560 x 1440 resolution and features DisplayPort, HDMI, dual-link DVI-D and USB 3.0 (x2) inputs. It will be released in October for
