Digital Solutions

Digital photography requires precise, refined tools.

SW270C helps pros get the best results with HDR support and multiple video formats.

Engineered for Excellence

BenQ is dedicated to absolute colour accuracy.
SW series is engineered to deliver the optimal colour performance for photography and video editing.
 

99% Adobe RGB

Adobe RGB colour space offers broad colour reproduction for shades of blue and green. This delivers more realistic colour representation, particularly for outdoor and nature photography. SW270C also covers 100% sRGB and Rec.709, and 97% DCI-P3 and Display P3.

Colour Precision

The 16 bit look up table (LUT) improves RGB colour blending accuracy, resulting in impeccable colour reproduction and Delta E ≤ 2 in AdobeRGB and sRGB colour space renders the truest and most representative view of the original image.

Colour Consistency

Surpassing industry colour standards, BenQ has dedicated itself to achieving the highest level of colour accuracy in every detail.

24P/25P Video Support

SW270C supports 24P/25P film content at native cadence, without pulldown, which can distort playback of the source video.

Industry Leading Calibration Software Support

SW270C supports the world-leading video calibration software CalMAN and LightSpace. Users can adjust the 3D LUT for image accuracy and consistency.

Uniformity Technology

BenQ Uniformity Technology offers screen-wide precise colour from corner to corner.
This is accomplished by meticulously fine-tuning hundreds of sub-regions on the screen for absolute confidence.

Hardware Calibration

Professionally Calibrated for Colour Accuracy

Each SW270C is individually calibrated for precise Delta-E and Gamma performance. Average Delta E≤2 in both Adobe RGB & sRGB colour spaces assures absolute colour precision and accurate representation of original images.
