Driven by BenQ's AQcolor technology and a resolution of 3840 x 2160 with a 60 Hz refresh rate, the SW321C helps deliver improved accuracy and productivity using 10-bit support for 1.07 billion colours, a 16-bit look up table (LUT) that improves RGB colour blending, and Delta E≤2 in Adobe RGB and sRGB colour spaces for a more representative view of the original image.

The SW321C features In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology, an anti-glare panel coating, a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio, a static contrast ratio of 1300:1, a dynamic contrast ratio of 20,000,000:1, a 250 cd/m2 brightness rating, 137 ppi, and a 5 ms (GtG) response time. Using the 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles, it is possible to watch content from virtually any position. There are also two HDMI 2.0 inputs, one DisplayPort 1.4 input, and one USB Type-C port that supports DP alt mode, audio, device charging up to 60W, and data transfer speeds up to 5 Gb/s. Additional connectivity is achieved using two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports (downstream) and one USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-B port (upstream). Audio can be output using the 3.5mm headphone jack.

BenQ's SW321C also supports HDCP 2.2, Picture-in-Picture (PiP), Picture-by-Picture (PbP), Advanced Black & White Mode, which lets users preview different black and white presets to preview photos, a GamutDuo Mode, which lets users preview the same photo side by side using two different colour gamuts, native 24p/25p frame rate playback for film and video editors, and colour consistency across dual monitors. Additionally, Uniformity Technology helps deliver corner-to-corner authentic colour and luminescence, while Paper Color Sync simulates printing results using your desired gamut, printer model, and paper type. To further help improve viewing and accessibility, it features a vertical tilt of -5 to 20°, a left/right swivel of ±45°, a pivot of 90°, and a height adjustment of 5.9". It is certified for Mac, Windows 10, 8.1, 8, and 7, and is verified by CalMAN and Pantone validated.

Paper Color Sync | Screen-to-Print Consistency

SW321C’s Paper Color Sync and A.R.T. (Advanced Reflectionless Technology) panels deliver unmatched ease and efficiency to preview photo prints accurately.

Paper Color Sync, a BenQ proprietary software, generates simulated images attuned to the colour settings, printer, and photo paper in use. A.R.T. panels, a global technology debut by BenQ, diffuse light to minimize reflection and enhance visual clarity. You’ll enjoy on-screen display with nearly identical properties to printed hardcopies.

Palette Master Element Calibration Software

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 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

Basic Mode
