BenQ, internationally renowned provider of digital lifestyle devices, today launches the SW271, a 4K UHD 27” monitor offering industry-standard HDR10 support and advanced colour performance for photographers. Covering 99% of Adobe RGB, and 100% of both sRGB and Rec. 709, the SW271 delivers the ultimate colour accuracy of Delta E ≦ 2 performance with its 10-bit IPS panel and advanced 14-bit 3D lookup table (LUT).

“We are proud to present the SW271, which joins our full line of professional monitors purpose-engineered for photographers,” said Conway Lee, President of BenQ Corporation. “SW271 brings photo enthusiasts professional-grade performance, specialised tools and advanced calibration for colour-critical applications.”

To display individual colours across its broad colour gamut with perfect accuracy, the SW271 utilises an advanced 14-bit 3D LUT to achieve Delta E values of two or better. In addition, Technicolor ® Colour Certified has been installed to meet strict colour accuracy standards used in Hollywood and entertainment media, therefore the SW271’s 10-bit 27” IPS panel delivers authentic colours as envisioned by content creators.

BenQ’s SW271 clearly displays high-resolution images from sophisticated DSLRs and other HDR source devices. It also produces intense photographic realism and colour depth by expanding the dynamic range between true darkness and high brightness,  

SW271’s colour characteristics can be customised via hardware calibration with X-Rite or Datacolor calibrators and BenQ Palette Master Element calibration software. Equipped with USB Type-C TM connectivity, the SW271 requires a single cable for calibration and video transmission.  

Adobe RGB, sRGB , as well as Black and White modes can be switched instantly via SW271’s exclusive “Hotkey Puck”. In addition, standard-equipment detachable shading hood blocks ambient glare for professional work in both portrait and landscape orientations. GamutDuo Mode also enables simultaneous picture-by-picture operation in two different colour spaces, such as Adobe RGB and sRGB, or even in a black and white film effect.  

SW271 is equipped with understated functionality with height adjustability, an SD card reader, USB 3.1 (Gen 1), USB Type-C TM , HDMI 2.0, and DisplayPort 1.4 ports.
