BenQ unveils new flagship image editing monitor
BenQ has announced its latest flagship photography monitor, the PhotoVue SW321C.
Featuring a 32-inch 4K UHD display with 'Paper Color Sync technology' for screen-to-photo color matching, the monitor also features 'special panel techniques' to further reduce reflection and glare, which, according to the company, result in a paper-like screen effect, that should help replicate the look of images in print.
The new monitor provides 99% coverage of Adobe RGB, 95% of DCI-P3 / Display P3 and 100% of sRGB color spaces.
The SW321C offers 10-bit color depth and a 16-bit 3D lookup table with Delta E≤2 accuracy, and each monitor comes with an individualised factory color calibration report and certifications from CalMAN and Pantone.
The 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.
The monitor also allows 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.
Operating from a single USB-C cable for video, audio, data, and power, SW321C also comes with a height-adjustable stand and a detachable shading hood.
BenQ SW321C will be available for purchase in late May through BenQ's specialised resellers.
