BenQ Ships Industry’s First Color-Critical Monitor With Single-Cable USB-C Connectivity

New PD2710QC 27” QHD IPS LED Display Features 100% sRGB As Well As Advanced Darkroom, CAD/CAM and Animation Modes

COSTA MESA, Calif. — April 6, 2017 — BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions, has launched a new 100% sRGB and Rec. 709 monitor offering an impressive range of features that help creative professionals craft exceptional detail in stunning color. The new PD2710QC is the world’s first design monitor to include a USB-C™ Docking Station for MacBook and PC users, allowing designers to charge devices, transfer data, transmit audio and video, and connect to the internet, all through the convenience of a single cable.
“The PD2710QC is engineered to meet the highest standards for color performance, ensuring the very best creation process for designers — from start to finish,” said J.Y. Hu, vice president, business line management at BenQ America Corp. “But we didn’t stop there: The USB-C Docking Station is a one-of-a-kind innovation that makes the monitor a powerhouse of productivity to ease the creative process.”
Simultaneously delivering up to 61 watts of power to a laptop or mobile device, the 27” (2560×1440) IPS LED display’s single 5-Gbps Super Speed USB-C connection powers its integrated hub and features multiple audio, video, network, and USB ports in addition to uncompressed crystal-clear 2K QHD video quality. The USB-C Docking Station is the perfect modern complement to the display’s edge-to-edge, four-sided slim bezel design and space grey metal finishing. The result is a beautifully crafted monitor that fits any working space, while offering users a seamless visual experience that is pivotal for artistic creation. Using the screen’s DisplayPort output and built-in multi-stream transport technology (MST), users can expand their workspace across multiple monitors. In addition, the included Display Pilot Software allows users to further customize their viewing experience by splitting their screen into multiple windows.
The PD2710QC features 100% sRGB and Rec.709 color accuracy and a wide viewing angle performance that ensures creative professionals can work confidently. As part of BenQ’s PD series design monitors, the display is also Technicolor Color-Certified, meeting the strict standards for color accuracy used in Hollywood and throughout the media and entertainment industries. Other features include a Darkroom mode, which creates the optimal setting for work in darker post-processing environments by adjusting the brightness and contrast of images that give clarity and sharpness to details; a revolutionary CAD/CAM mode, which offers superior contrast on lines and shapes of technical illustrations, bringing out the smallest details to view; and BenQ’s innovative Animation mode, allowing designers to control and perfect every moment by lightening image areas to better visualize the details hiding in dark shadows.
To provide the very best screen conditions that ensure eye comfort and vision health for long hours at a computer, BenQ incorporated features that ease eye strain. In addition to an anti-glare screen, the display boasts BenQ’s market-leading Eye-Care technology, including Zeroflicker™ and Low Blue Light, which eliminate flicker and filter out harmful blue light that can cause eye fatigue and irritation.
The PD2710QC is priced at $599. More information on the full line of BenQ products is available at www.BenQ.us.
