BenQ, an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions, has introduced a new 27 inch 4K UHD monitor that offers professional photographers unprecedented colour accuracy through new AQCOLOR technology, high specifications and a picture-perfect performance.

Building on the success of its award-winning predecessor the SW2700PT, the SW271 sets a new benchmark by taking image quality to the next level. The HDR10-enabled monitor allows users to see their images and videos in a wider dynamic range than a typical monitor. This impressive feature has to be seen to be believed.

The sleek new SW271 is user friendly and offers colours so true that it brings out the fine detail and creative essence of every photo, whether it’s been taken by a seasoned professional or an amateur hobbyist.

BenQ's AQCOLOR technology allows users to have complete colour control over images. AQCOLOR uses a combination of hardware calibration, BenQ's signature Palette Master Elements software and Technicolor Color Certification, which ensures the monitor meets the strict colour accuracy standards used in Hollywood and the entertainment media.

''We are proud to present the SW271, which joins our full line of professional monitors, developed for photographers,'' said Conway Lee, President of BenQ Corporation. ''The SW271 brings users specialised tools and advanced hardware calibration for colour-critical applications. It also has USB-C connectivity for transmitting video and data signals using just one cable for convenience.''

The SW271 features 99 percent Adobe RGB, 100 percent sRGB and Rec. 709. It also displays the DCI-P3 colour space. Users are given an unrivalled image performance for visual perfection in professional photo editing.

GamutDuo enables users to view content simultaneously in different colour spaces side-by-side, and a Hotkey Puck allows users to effortlessly switch between a variety of modes, such as Adobe RGB, sRGB and Black & White modes.

The monitor also features an SD card reader, USB 3.1, USB Type-C, HDMI 2.0, and DisplayPort 1.4 ports. A detachable shading hood is also included to reduce the monitor's screen glare.

The SW271 monitor retails at £1,067 incl. VAT and is available to purchase through leading photo and video retailers.

BenQ's range of colour critical monitors are distributed by XP Distribution in the UK, France, Spain, Germany, Poland and the Nordics. XP Distribution is Europe’s leading distributor of hardware, software, accessories and consumables into the digital imaging, video and graphics market.
