Designed for visual perfection in professional photo editing, the SW2700PT is the first photography monitor on the market to bring together an array of high-end features for unmatched color accuracy, fidelity, consistency and seamless compatibility with DSLR cameras. The Adobe RGB color space enables the SW2700PT to display a larger range in shades of blue and green, reproducing more precise color representations for nature photography. The 14bit 3D Look Up Table (LUT) improves RGB color blending accuracy for exceptional color reproduction, while Delta E≤2 in both Adobe RGB and sRGB color spaces offer the truest view of the original image.
Hardware calibration allows users to adjust the SW2700PT’s 14bit 3D Look Up Table (LUT) directly without altering graphics card output data, ensuring that every photo is smoothly and consistently displayed just as it was taken. The SW2700PT comes with BenQ’s proprietary Palette Master calibration software, which can be used with a calibrator to optimize the color performance of the display.

Discerning eyes will marvel at the SW2700PT’s attention to image detail. Every photographic image can be viewed with stunning clarity, definition and accuracy on this QHD (2560x1440) display. With nearly 77% more working space than a standard Full HD display, users can see more of the image they are editing with the incredible detail. The monitor is intelligently designed to give users complete convenience when viewing and editing photos. The monitor’s detachable shading hood blocks ambient light that can often distort a user’s color perception. The OSD controller puts management of the display setting in the users’ hands with three preset buttons, allowing customization of display settings for various applications, such as Adobe RGB, sRGB and Black-and-White mode. Users can simply switch between the presets with a click of a button instead of going through complicated settings. The button on the OSD controller offers quick navigation of OSD function settings. Last but not least, Black-and-White Mode allows users to review and edit black-and-white photos without losing any detail or tone. By previewing color photos in black and white before editing, users can save significant time lost to guesswork and trial-and-error.
The SW2700PT will be released first in America, Europe and Asia Pacific in July, 2015. Please visit www.BenQ.com for more information.
