EINDHOVEN, THE NETHERLANDS, 06 DECEMBER 2022 – BenQ, an internationally renowned brand of digital lifestyle devices and innovator of professional display technology, announced today that its PhotoVue SW321C became the world’s first monitor to be certified by TUV Rheinland for outstanding anti-glare and anti-reflection performance, guaranteeing professional results for photographers and video editors.
"Utilising the A.R.T. panel that complies with TUV Rheinland certification, BenQ SW321C is the first monitor to assure professionals with displays that eliminate glare and reflection to simulate paper-texture visual experiences on screen," said Conway Lee, President of BenQ Corporation. "Furthermore, with BenQ exclusive Paper Colour Sync software, screen-to-print colour consistency can be achieved everywhere.
Developed by leading display panel maker, AU Optronics, A.R.T. delivers realistic and crystal-clear visuals with an exclusive surface coating and anti-glare properties for eye protection and comfort under varying ambient lighting conditions. Consequently, A.R.T. became the first recipient of reflection-free certification from TUV Rheinland, the world’s foremost authority in safety testing and certification.
Based on numerous strict international regulations including screen surface treatment, glare, and reflection testing, TUV Rheinland’s anti-reflection certification most significantly recognises SW321C’s superior ambient contrast ratio (ACR) performance, ensuring professional image quality and colour contrast under bright lighting and diverse ambient light sources.
Being among the most popular professional monitors for photographers and video editors for years, BenQ SW321C features exclusive AQCOLOR technology for industry-standard colour performance with expertly calibrated screen uniformity and colour consistency, providing the ultimate platform for accurate photo editing and reliable reproduction to printed photo output.
Improving upon today's professional colour-critical monitors, SW321C now employs the A.R.T. panel to produce a paper-like screen effect that, in conjunction with BenQ Paper Colour Sync software, ensures photographs look virtually identical on-screen as on paper.
Offering photographers and videographers the finest creative experiences with colour consistency to simulate paper texture on-screen, and Paper Colour Sync for accurate printed output, BenQ will employ the A.R.T. panel on all upcoming SW models for unparalleled colour performance beyond the industry standard.
