EINDHOVEN, THE NETHERLANDS, 24th August 2022 – BenQ, a global consumer electronics brand, announces that, for the first time, visitors at Gamescom 2022 will be able to experience multiple new gaming monitors from MOBIUZ and the latest products from ZOWIE professional e-Sports brand.
From 24th to 28th August in Cologne, Germany, visitors of the BenQ stand (stand A-031, Hall 08.1) will get the chance to explore an immersive gaming reality as they discover the next generation of top-performing displays, designed for gamers of all levels. This edition will be even more special because it will be held both in person and online.
‘At BenQ, we are continuously striving to present gamers with ultimate audio-visual immersion and smart AI innovations to ensure an upgraded gaming experience. In this way, we can help players reach a next-level performance’, says Steve Chu, President of BenQ Europe. ‘Since our goal is to create premium experiences for gamers of all types, the natural next step for us was to bring our customers the latest display technology that will change the way they interact within their virtual worlds’, continues the BenQ Europe president.
‘Gamescom is the perfect global platform showcasing for the first time our newest generation of gaming monitors since it’s one of the top-tier gaming events in the world’, concludes Chu. ‘During these five days, we look forward to welcoming everyone to our stand and having them experience the displays for the first time.’
The new MOBIUZ product line includes the EX480UZ, EX270M, and EX270QM models. The EX480UZ is BenQ’s first gaming monitor with an OLED panel, 48-inch, 4K resolution, delivering a refresh rate of 120Hz, ultra-fast response time of 0.1ms, with True 10-bit colour and True Black HDR 400. The model also features FreeSync Premium and BenQ’s HDRi technology, as well as a KVM switch, scenario mapping with remote control, light tuner, and treVolo speakers. Therefore, the EX480UZ is the perfect choice for end-users who wish to upgrade their gaming experience.
The EX270M and EX270QM are the first MOBIUZ monitors to offer 240Hz and lightning fast 1msGtG, a performance level ideal for FPS gaming. The EX270M model has, among others, a 27-inch FHD display and IPS panel, as well as two 2.1 channels and a 5W subwoofer treVolo audio system.
The EX270QM model comes with a 27-inch QHD display and IPS panel with VESA HDR600 certification. Furthermore, the HDMI 2.1 connectivity ensures VRR (variable refresh rate) compatibility for last-generation gaming consoles, guaranteeing a smooth gameplay performance without screen tearing. Both EX270QM and EX270M also come with scenario mapping, remote control and light tuner.
ZOWIE, BenQ’s e-Sports specialist sub-brand, will also be present at the BenQ stand. ZOWIE, which has been widely recognized by e-Sport players for its top-performing products, has recently become the official display partner of the RIOT Games’ Valorant Challenger Tour EMEA 2022. At the stand, visitors will get the chance to test out their latest products equipped with DyAc⁺™ Technology, which dramatically reduces any motion blur. In addition, everyone will get the chance to experience the XL Setting to Share™ tool that allows sharing display settings with others by sending them as a profile.
ZOWIE’s next generation C series Mouse and G-SR-SE mouse pad will also be available for gamers to trial at the stand.
All monitors feature BenQ’s industry-leading Eye-Care technology. This ensures a flicker-free experience and low blue light for a comfortable viewing experience during extended periods of gameplay. All monitors are also accompanied by height-adjustable stands to ensure maximum comfort for gamers.
Moreover, visitors at the BenQ stand will be able to see the X3000i projector, which has been recently awarded the prestigious EISA Award as EISA GAMING PROJECTOR 2022-2023 in the category ‘Home Theatre Display & Video’. For gamers, this model brings a pre-configured ‘Fast Mode’, with a dedicated remote key, and response times down to almost 4ms at 1080p/240Hz (and 16ms for 4K/60Hz), along with three game modes optimised for different genres.
