BenQ launches the new SW240, the latest addition to the SW PhotoVue family. The new SW240 is a 24-inch 1080p 10-bit IPS display that sits below the 27-inch QHD SW2700PT, the 27-inch UHD SW271, and the 32-inch UHD SW320.
The SW240 boasts 99 per cent AdobeRGB coverage, 95 per cent DCI-P3, a 14-bit 3D look-up table (LUT), hardware calibration, an 'advanced black and white' mode, and a color mode hotkey for switching between AdobeRGB, sRGB, and DCI-P3 while editing.
The 10-bit display has been claimed to show more than 1 billion colors and allows users to enjoy a smooth color gradation of detailed images. Its 14-bit 3D look-up table (LUT) improves RGB color blending accuracy, resulting in improved color reproduction.
Featuring BenQ’s AQCOLOR technology, the SW240 provides out-of-the-box, factory-calibrated color accuracy with industry-standard color space to render natural-like colours. The 99 per cent Adobe RGB color space offers a range of color reproduction for shades of blue and green. The SW240 hardware calibration adjusts the monitor’s image processing chip rather than the graphics card output.
BenQ’s SW240 features slim bezels, meaning that you can set up a dual-monitor workspace. The monitor also features a new OSD hotkey (Color Mode HotKey) to switch between 3 preset color modes without having to press other OSD buttons.
BenQ also says it has used an exclusive Eye-Care technology for reducing eye fatigue for user comfort. A detachable shading hood is available as an optional accessory for the BenQ SW240 which can reduce the monitor’s screen glare resulting from ambient lighting.
The SW240 will be available from August and will become the most affordable monitor in the lineup. The SW240 PhotoVue Photographer’s monitor will be available on Amazon and all leading photography retail outlets for the price of Rs 39,000.
