| BenQ Australia unveiled today PhotoVue SW321C photographer monitor, a 32-inch 4K UHD display with Paper Color Sync technology for screen-to-photo color matching. Featuring exclusive AQCOLOR technology for industry standard color performance with expertly calibrated screen uniformity and color consistency, SW321C provides photographers with the ultimate platform for accurate photo editing and reliable reproduction to printed photo output.
“Photographers and videographers rely on visual expression through evocative photography,” said Martin Moelle, Managing Director of BenQ Australia. “SW321C provides the expert color performance they require with powerful color management tools, providing paper-matched screen quality to closely simulate printed photography.”
Improving upon today’s professional-color monitors, SW321C employs special panel techniques to further reduce reflection and glare, resulting in a paperlike screen effect that works together with Paper Color Sync software to ensure photographs look almost the same on screen as well as on paper.
As the flagship display for professional photo retouching, SW321C with AQCOLOR technology provides 99% coverage of Adobe RGB, 95% of DCI-P3 / Display P3 and 100% of sRGB color spaces. SW321C’s 10-bit color depth and 16-bit 3D lookup table produce pristine colors with Delta E≤2 accuracy, combined with BenQ’s uniformity compensation technology for precision across the entire screen. Producing everyday color consistency with onboard hardware color calibration, each SW321C comes with an individualized factory color calibration report and certifications from CalMAN and Pantone.
Supporting photographers and DSLR enthusiasts who work increasingly with video media in addition to photography, SW321C natively supports uncompressed 4:4:4 or 4:2:2 and 4:2:0 chroma 10-bit video formats as well as HDR10 and HLG capability for vibrant and lifelike video quality.
SW321C’s GamutDuo function also enables simultaneous side-by-side viewing of the same image in two different color spaces, such as Adobe RGB and sRGB. And its black and white mode is designed for previewing film effects before adjusting pictures. All of these color modes can be instantly switched via BenQ’s Hotkey Puck G2 to enhance efficiency.
Operating from a single USB-C cable for video, audio, data, and power, SW321C is equipped with a height-adjustable stand and a detachable professional shading hood.
BenQ SW321C will be available for purchase in late May through BenQ’s Specialised Resellers: http://creative.benq.com.au/specialised-reseller
