SW271 Press release

Eindhoven, The Netherlands, September 14, 2017 – BenQ, internationally renowned provider of digital lifestyle devices, introduced today SW271, a 4K UHD 27” monitor offering industry-standard HDR10 support and advanced color performance for photographers. Covering 99% of Adobe RGB, and 100% of both sRGB and Rec. 709, SW271 delivers the ultimate color accuracy of Delta E ≦ 2 performance with its 10-bit IPS panel and advanced 14-bit 3D lookup table (LUT).

 

“We are proud to present SW271, which joins our full line of professional monitors purpose-engineered for photographers,” said Conway Lee, President of BenQ Corporation. “SW271 brings photo enthusiasts professional-grade performance, specialized tools and advanced calibration for color-critical applications.”

 

To display each color across its broad color gamut with perfect accuracy, SW271 utilizes an advanced 14-bit 3D LUT to achieve Delta E values of two or better. Technicolor ® Color Certified to meet strict color accuracy standards used in Hollywood and entertainment media, SW271’s 10-bit 27” IPS panel delivers authentic colors as envisioned by content creators.

 

Producing intense photographic realism and color depth by expanding the dynamic range between true darkness and high brightness, SW271 clearly displays high-resolution images from sophisticated DSLRs and other HDR source devices.

 

SW271’s color characteristics can be customized via hardware calibration with X-Rite or Datacolor calibrators and BenQ Palette Master Element calibration software. Equipped with USB Type-C TM connectivity, SW271 utilizes a single cable for calibration and video transmission.

 

Adobe RGB, sRGB , as well as Black and White modes can be switched instantly via SW271’s exclusive “Hotkey Puck”. In addition, standard-equipment detachable shading hood blocks ambient glare for professional work in both portrait and landscape orientations, and GamutDuo Mode enables simultaneous picture-by-picture operation in two different color spaces, such as Adobe RGB and sRGB, or even in a black and white film effect.

 

SW271 is styled in understated functionality with height adjustability, an SD card reader, USB 3.1 (Gen 1) , USB Type-C TM , HDMI 2.0, and DisplayPort 1.4 ports.
