Individually calibrated by factory engineers to produce 100% sRGB and Rec. 709 color precision, the PD Series of monitors is dedicated to graphic design, photography, CAD/CAM, animation and video.
BenQ continues to introduce new monitors to different segments of the market and at Siggraph 2017, besides presenting its complete line of monitors, introduced some new options for creative artists. The PD2500Q display is one such example, a 25″ 2K QHD (2560×1440) LED IPS panel which is the first monitor in the PD designer monitor series to be individually calibrated by factory engineers, bringing out the finest details in superb clarity and depth to inspire absolute design confidence. The custom calibration ensures 100% sRGB and Rec. 709 color gamut accuracy and meets Technicolor Color Certification and strict Delta-E and Gamma tolerances, according to BenQ.
“Consistent, accurate color reproduction from start to finish is the ultimate hallmark for any creative professional. Unfortunately, it can be difficult and time-consuming to get it just right,” said Steve Yang, senior director at BenQ America Corp. “By factory calibrating each PD Series designer monitor, we’re ensuring every display is optimized to achieve design perfection for every project right out of the box.”
The BenQ PD2500Q can be adapted to different needs, as it offers an abundance of smart tools specifically developed for designers including CAD/CAM Mode, Animation Mode and Darkroom Mode, each addressing specific creative requirements. CAD/CAM Mode activates superior contrast for lines and shapes in technical illustrations, accentuating the finest details in Pro/E, SOLIDWORKS, AutoCAD, CATIA, or other design software. Animation Mode enhances the brightness of dark areas without overexposing bright regions, to overcome often-challenging design work with intricate details in dark images. Finally, Darkroom Mode creates the optimal image brightness and contrast for work in darkened post-processing environments for superb clarity and detail sharpness.
The ultra-slim bezel and DP out (Multi-Stream Transport, MST) are, says BenQ, “ideal for dual-monitor setups and its 90-degree pivoting, height-adjustable stand enhances display productivity and versatility.” The monitor features a comprehensive array of connectivity options to address the growing range of source devices and setups, including DisplayPort, mini DisplayPort, HDMI, USB 3.1 Gen1, headphone and audio ports.
According to BenQ, the PD2500Q, first announced in May, is now shipping at a retail price of $299. Attendees at Siggraph 2017, taking place until Aug 3 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, can get a first-look at the PD2500Q on display at the event.
