Enjoy the smoothest colour gradations on a 10-bit colour depth which shows more than one billion colours.
The 14-bit 3D Look Up Table (LUT) improves RGB colour blending accuracy, resulting in impeccable colour reproduction. Having Delta E≤2 in both Adobe RGB and sRGB colour spaces renders the truest and most representative view of the original image.
With the use of Palette Master Element and a calibrator, you can tune and maintain the colour performance of the monitor at its most optimal state.
Hardware calibration counts. Since a monitor is being used for longer periods of time, it will exhibit the phenomena of reduced brightness and colour shift more or less. To accurately represent the tones and colours of the photos on the screen, apply hardware calibration on a regular basis is necessary. That’s why you need suitable software to support it and BenQ has developed the software Palette Master Element. After a display is carefully hardware calibrated, it allows precise control when manipulating images for realistic or stylized results
Palette Master Element, BenQ proprietary software for hardware calibration, assists to hardware calibrate your monitor. It simplifies the calibration process and produces accurate colour results. With its minimalist user interface, you can finish your hardware calibration just clicks away. Apply Palette Master Element to fine-tune the colour engine on SW series monitors to fully support X-Rite / Datacolor colorimeter.
*Supported Platforms: Win7 or above, Mac OS 10.6.8 or above
*Supported Calibrators: X-Rite i1 Display Pro / i1 Pro / i1 Pro 2 & Datacolor Spyder 4 / Spyder 5
Start with the correct default profile, white point and luminance for monitor calibration. It’s easy to achieve colour accuracy with a simple user interface.
Your professional colour calibration completes with customized RGB primaries, white point, luminance, gamma and black point settings to get more refined adjustments
Each BenQ Photographer Monitor is individually factory-calibrated upon production to assure precise Delta-E and Gamma performance. Achieving an average Delta E≤2 in both Adobe RGB & sRGB colour spaces, calibration results are validated against industry colour standards to deliver the truest and most representative view of original content.
Optional Shading Hood
A detachable shading hood is available as an optional accessory for SW240 which can effectively reduce the monitor’s screen glare resulting from ambient lighting, ensuring superb colour accuracy required for professional work.
