BenQ Australia has released details of its new SW240 24-inch colour accurate monitor that claims to cover 99% of the Adobe RGB colour space.

 Featuring the same technologies as the popular SW2700PT model, it is smaller in size and a lot more portable. The IPS screen has a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels and boasts a 10-bit colour display with an advanced 14-bit 3D LUT that can achieve Delta E (colour difference) values of two or better in both Adobe RGB and sRGB colour spaces and improves RGB colour blending and accuracy. A built-in Colour Mode HotKey display enables users to switch colour modes on the fly. The new B/W Mode lets users view photos in a black and white film effect and from three different black and white presets to preview images before they are adjusted in an editing program.

It also supports hardware calibration with BenQ’s proprietary calibration software, Palette Master Elements, which enables calibration to be done on the internal image processing chip without affecting the graphics card. An optional shading hood is available.

The SW240 is the first monitor in BenQ’s ‘Accurate Colour On the Goâ„¢’ concept, which offers photographers and videographers a portable, affordable solution for reviewing and editing their work in Adobe RGB on the go. Its slim bezel design and ‘one push’ release system enables the screen to be packed into an optional hard or soft carry case, while an optional tripod/light-stand mount allows it to be used almost anywhere. An optional Accurate Colour On the Goâ„¢ Powerbank is light and compact and provides enough power for up to 15 hours of usage.

The BenQ SW240 is available now at selected Specialised Resellers, starting with launch partners, Camera Electronic  (BenQ SW240) and Image Science (BenQ SW240).
