EINDHOVEN, THE NETHERLANDS, May 2,2019 – BenQ, internationally renowned brand of digital lifestyle devices and innovator of professional display technology, today announced its PD Series of DesignVue monitors for designers and SW Series of PhotoVue monitors for photographers became the world’s first stand-alone displays to earn the Pantone Validated status, ensuring color-matched interoperability with a plethora of production-grade color output devices qualified by Pantone.


“Pantone Validated provides designers and photographers confidence in the Pantone colors rendered on screen throughout their creative process, to better align materials in Pantone colors or simulations using Pantone-licensed output solutions,” said Conway Lee, President of BenQ Corporation. “BenQ is proud to join the global community of color professionals who trust the Pantone system to deliver accurate colors in graphics, fashion, packaging, architecture, and consumer goods industries.”


Rigorously evaluated and approved by Pantone color experts, BenQ DesignVue and PhotoVue monitors offer integrated color correction and BenQ-exclusive AQCOLOR technology to guarantee superior fidelity in color accuracy, including tested quality in achieving Pantone Matching System (PMS) colors. In use by virtually every color-critical industry and manufacturer worldwide, the PMS system is a universal language of color that allows creative professionals to specify and match specific colors, regardless of the equipment and materials used to produce the exact color.


Newly launched for 2019, the Pantone Validated mark vouches for the ability of a color control system and associated hardware to accurately produce the full range of PMS colors, ensuring the production and appearance of colors in print or on finished products reflects the design intent, now including Pantone colors as shown on BenQ DesignVue and PhotoVue display devices.


As the global authority on commercial color reproduction, Pantone has provided color standards by standardizing over10,000 colors for designers and product developers since the 1960s . Pantone’s validation of DesignVue and PhotoVue monitors reinforces BenQ’s dedication to providing absolute color accuracy to color-critical professional applications.
