BenQ America Corp., a provider of visual display solutions, will demonstrate its newest Creative Series monitors at the 2017 NAB Show, April 24-27, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. At booth SL9830, attendees will experience BenQ’s Technicolor® Color-Certified PV270 video postproduction and PV3200PT video editing monitors and learn how they can improve image visualization.

“Editing and postproduction are becoming more and more nuanced, requiring more of attention to detail than ever before,” said J.Y. Hu, vice president, business line management at BenQ America Corp. “At NAB, attendees will get a hands-on demonstration of the innovations we pack into our monitors to make their jobs of executing such fine-tuned details easier and more accurate without ever compromising on color performance.”

BenQ’s PV270 Technicolor Color-Certified monitor delivers accurate color from start to finish. The monitor’s 99% Adobe® RGB coverage encompasses most of the colors producible for photography, whereas the 100% Rec. 709 coverage and the 96% DCI-P3 color gamut is crucial for video postproduction work. Thus, the PV270 is ideal for postproduction pros, as well as professional photographers that currently edit video, or for those thinking about moving into video. The display includes brightness uniformity, which offers a more authentic and consistent viewing experience. The 2560 x 1440 (QHD) resolution delivers the crisp picture quality expected for close reviews and detailed editing, and the spacious 27” widescreen view provides greater comfort and productivity. With a 14-bit 3D Look Up Table (LUT) and Delta-E value of less than or equal to 1.5, professionals can display the most accurate color mixture. It also improves the RGB color blending accuracy, resulting in impeccable color and grey tone reproduction.

The PV3200PT is BenQ’s first monitor designed specifically with video postproduction professionals in mind. This wide-angle, 32” IPS display features 4K UHD (3840 x 2160 pixel) resolution to scrutinize images to the finest details. The PV3200PT’s color gamut covers 100% Rec.709/sRGB and includes hardware calibration support via the Palette Master Element calibration software to adjust the monitor’s color gamut, white point, color temperature and luminance. A Brightness Uniformity feature helps maintain the monitor’s display performance and ensure even brightness throughout the canvas. With built-in 24P support, videos can be viewed with correct timing at their native cinematic frame rates. Other features include built-in 14-bit 3D LUT and a Delta-E value of less than or equal to 1.5 to deliver the highest color accuracy and the truest reproduction of original images. An optional software development kit is also available to allow studios or calibration software providers to be more involved in the setting of calibration customizations.

Centered on BenQ’s commitment to offer purpose-built monitors for creative professionals, each of these displays adds incredible value with features that speed up the creative process and increase visual comfort through BenQ’s leading Eye-Care technology.

During NAB, attendees can enter a drawing at booth SL9830 for a prize package that includes a PV3200PT monitor, coupled with X-Rite ColorChecker Passport Video, i1DislayPro and a one year Adobe Premiere subscription. The total value of the package is approximately $2,000.
