Audio Video Photo Light since 2000
Highlight and Design Concept
Supported by BenQ’s AQCOLOR Technology, the new 24.1” monitor covers industry standard
space of 99% Adobe RGB and 100% sRGB
and delivers factory-calibrated color accuracy to ensure brilliant colors for photographers.
As the frontrunner of the professional monitor industry, BenQ has never slowed down but sought out further improvement for the photographers especially in the respect of the quality of color reproduction, viewing comfort and user convenience. SW240 has a perfect screen size for professional photographers to do their work with ease by 24.1” 16:10 panel. It can display two full A4 pages plus tool palettes for photographers to easily compare the content on the screen. Furthermore, BenQ Team always seeks the easiest way for our users to use the monitor.
By upgrading user experience, we develop a new OSD hotkey (Color Mode HotKey) for switching different color modes smartly. Users can switch color modes with ease. Also SW240 has its edge-to-edge ultra slim bezels, allowing photographers to set up a dual-monitor workspace for a grand view.
Knowing that ambient lighting can obstruct color accuracy, SW series photographer mo
nitors all come with a detachable shading hood to reduce screen glare to deliver the most accurate colors.The newly-designed shading hood can be used at portrait orientation as well as at landscape
orientation. In consideration of consumers’ preference, we will sell the shading hood as an optional accessory for SW240.
BenQ Team knows: a small detail can make a big difference. We’ve noticed that the color of the monitor bezels can so affect the photographer’s viewing experience that we experimented with a variety of colors, aiming to find the right one to minimize reflection and maintain the accuracy of the display. After extensive and intensive research, SW240 monitor implements a neutral grey color on the surface to ensure the optimal viewing experience for photography professionals.
