“Having forged AQCOLOR Technology to deliver accurate colors for the global community of color professionals, we look forward to incorporating Pantone SkinTone Validated for technology products that are more inclusive than ever,” said Conway Lee, President of BenQ Corporation. “Pantone SkinTone Validated gives designers and photographers confidence in displaying authentic real-world colors and accurately representing the world’s palette of skin tones.”
Leveraging the Pantone SkinTone guide, the first science-based system for matching and reproducing human skin tones, the program comprises 110 discrete skin tones based on thousands of human skin measurements from a diverse range of ethnicities and age groups. As an extension to the Pantone Validated program, Pantone SkinTone Validated assures color professionals that certified devices comply with the Pantone Matching System (PMS) and accurately reproduce lifelike skin tones to represent equality and inclusivity for all consumers.
“The Pantone SkinTone Validated program exemplifies inclusivity in technology and we are thrilled to be working with BenQ to help realize skin tone color accuracy in their products and services for a better and more accurate experience. We look forward to further collaborating with the BenQ team on this for years to come,” said Iain Pike, Pantone Director of Licensing and Business Development.
As the world’s first professional monitors to become Pantone SkinTone Validated, BenQ DesignVue and PhotoVue professional displays are exhibited at CES 2022 in Las Vegas, United States. To learn more about BenQ displays, please visit: https://www.benq.eu/en-eu/monitor
