BenQ Announces PD2500Q Design Monitor
COSTA MESA, CA, Aug 1, 2017 – BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions, today announced the debut of its professionally factory-calibrated PD Series Design monitor with the new PD2500Q display. Ideal for graphic design, photography, CAD/CAM, animation and video post-production professionals, the new monitor is the first monitor in the series that will be individually calibrated by factory engineers to produce 100% sRGB and Rec. 709 color precision. Going forward, all designer monitors in the PD Series will be professionally factory-calibrated.
“Consistent, accurate color reproduction from start to finish is the ultimate hallmark for any creative professional. Unfortunately, it can be difficult and time-consuming to get it just right,” said Steve Yang, senior director at BenQ America Corp. “By factory calibrating each PD Series designer monitor, we’re ensuring every display is optimized to achieve design perfection for every project right out of the box.”
Reference Certification Quality Color and Image Performance
BenQ’s PD2500Q 25″ 2K QHD (2560×1440) LED IPS panel is the first monitor in the PD designer monitor series to be individually calibrated by factory engineers, bringing out the finest details in superb clarity and depth to inspire absolute design confidence. The custom calibration ensures 100% sRGB and Rec. 709 color gamut accuracy and meets Technicolor Color Certification and strict Delta-E and Gamma tolerances.
Custom Features Engineered for Designers
The BenQ PD2500Q offers an abundance of smart tools specifically developed for designers including CAD/CAM Mode, Animation Mode and Darkroom Mode, each addressing specific creative requirements. CAD/CAM Mode activates superior contrast for lines and shapes in technical illustrations, accentuating the finest details in Pro/E, SOLIDWORKS, AutoCAD, CATIA, or other design software. Animation Mode enhances the brightness of dark areas without overexposing bright regions, to overcome often-challenging design work with intricate details in dark images. Finally, Darkroom Mode creates the optimal image brightness and contrast for work in darkened post-processing environments for superb clarity and detail sharpness.
The ultra-slim bezel and DP out (Multi-Stream Transport, MST) are ideal for dual-monitor setups and its 90-degree pivoting, height-adjustable stand enhances display productivity and versatility. The monitor features a comprehensive array of connectivity options to address the growing range of source devices and setups, including DisplayPort, mini DisplayPort, HDMI, USB 3.1 Gen1, headphone and audio ports.
The PD2500Q is now shipping at a retail price of $299. Attendees at SIGGRAPH 2017, taking place Aug. 1-3 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, can get a first-look at the PD2500Q on display.
