Expanded BenQ SW271C Pro 27 Inch IPS Monitor Key Features:
Designed For Working Professionals
The BenQ SW271C Pro 27 Inch IPS Monitor has one goal in mind - To meet the meticulous colour-accuracy demands of creative professionals. This monitor has been designed to be ideal for both photo editing and video post-production featuring industry colour standards, covering 99% of Adobe RGB, 100% of sRGB/Rec.709, and 90% of DCI-P3/Display P3. In addition to this, the monitor also offers HDR preview with HDR10 & HLG with 24/25/30P video support, as well as being both Calman Verified and Pantone Validated.
When producing high-quality content, be it videos or prints, colour uniformity and consistency is vital. The monitor offers an impressively high 3840 x 2160 resolution which allows you to view stunning 4K footage that remains as highly detailed and precise as it was when shot in-camera. This monitor also sees upgrades to the overall uniformity and brightness over previous models that of course, also contributes to the colour consistency.
Printing with Confidence
It can often be a task to envision your images as the prints that will eventually come out as physical copies. Calibrating your monitor can be a challenge in itself and even when you have done this, getting your colours just right is a difficult job. To combat this, this monitor features BenQ's Paper Colour Sync technology. This proprietary software is designed to simulate printing results based on your printer and the paper used. This means that you can efficiently edit photos on screen with the confidence that your prints will match your edits.
The 2nd generation Hotkey Puck is an updated dial that sits pride of place below the monitor screen. It is an intuitive, tactile device that gives you full access to the OSD menu for lightning-fast changes to brightness, contrast, and volume. Instead of scrolling through on-screen menus, the Hotkey Puck provides a much more efficient and cleaner way to navigate/manipulate certain aspects of your image. This is great for productivity when working through a large number of still images, whilst affording videographers and colour graders with a more authentic and hands-on editing experience.
Contemporary USB-C Connection
The BenQ SW271C Pro utilises a high-capacity USB-C port to ensure speed, consistency, and power. It has the ability to perform high-speed video, audio, and data transmissions - prioritising your workflow and individual needs as an image-maker. As well as this, the USB-C port delivers 60W power and is located at the back of the monitor alongside various other inputs/outputs for user-friendly navigation. The PC/Video inputs include two HDMI 2.0, DP 1.4, and the aforementioned USB Type-C (PD60W).
