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

By Super User

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
