BenQ Corp., an internationally renowned provider of digital lifestyle innovations, today announced the expansion of its RL Series of professional gaming monitors with the launch of the new RL2455HM. Built on the advanced technology of the RL Series — featured on the Major League Gaming (MLG) 2012 Championship Circuit — the RL2455HM has been enhanced thanks to feedback directly from the gaming community. Gamers now get a blazing-fast 1-ms GTG response time, 2-watt stereo speakers, and dual HDMI® ports for the ultimate in connectivity and control. The monitor also comes packed with advanced custom settings, such as BenQ’s Black eQualizer, Display Mode, and Smart Scaling to give players a competitive edge.
“As the official MLG gaming monitor provider, we were proud to see more and more top-notch players using our RL2450HT to deliver unprecedented levels of accuracy and control in a number of tournaments across the U.S.,” said Peter Chen, EVP and General Manager of BenQ Technology Product Center. “With the RL2455HM, we’ve taken all the innovation and advanced technologies of the RL Series, incorporated feedback from the gaming pros, and created a powerful gaming monitor. Now home gamers can get the same experience as the pros, enabling an entirely new level of player performance and digital entertainment.”
Designed specifically for Real-Time Strategy (RTS) and console gaming, users get the ultimate experience for RTS games such as the StarCraft II Heart of the Swarm and League of Legends, and popular console fighting games like Mortal Kombat™ with an ultra-low 0.003-frame input lag that synchronizes action without latency from mouse motion. The monitor’s dual HDMI ports provide full HD connectivity with PS3, XBOX, Blu-ray™ players, PCs, cameras, and more, allowing users to enjoy their digital entertainment effortlessly. The RL2455HM features a 24-inch widescreen (16:9) full HD LED screen, LED backlighting for great color and low power consumption, and a 12 million to 1 contrast ratio for the best in picture quality.
To give players a competitive edge, the RL2455HM features BenQ’s Black eQualizer to enable total visibility by allowing gamers to adjust the screen brightness without over-exposing white levels — revealing critical combat details with improved visibility in darkened areas. To accommodate individual viewing preferences, the Display Mode allows gamers to switch between seven monitor screen sizes from 17" (4:3), 19" (4:3), 19"W (16:10), 21.5"W (16:9), 22"W (16:10), 23W" (16:9) to 24W" (16:9), while the Smart Scaling feature gives players the ability to scale the screen on-the-fly to virtually any custom size, without impacting controller sensitivity.
Debuting in MLG Winter Pro Circuit 2013 (March 15-17) in Dallas, TX, the new RL2455HM gaming monitor will be available in March in United States. It will head to Europe shortly after. Information on the full line of BenQ gaming monitors is available at gaming.benq.com.
