BenQ SW2401PT IPS monitor targets pro photographers

Monitors boasting accurate, bright colors are nothing new, and now BenQ has introduced its own offering with the same promise: the new SW2401PT monitor. The display measures in at 24-inches, and its maker is hailing it as the first monitor designed for professional photographers. Dubious claim aside, the SW2401PT supports 99% of AdobeRGB, and includes a variety of software and hardware that aim to produce high quality image reproduction. This is joined by a high 2560 x 1440 resolution and very thin bezels.

The new BenQ monitor features Palette Master optimization software and hardware calibration, 14-bit 3D Look Up Table, a black and white mode that should come especially in handy for photographers, Delta E<2 capabilities, and LIT.

The monitor also offers some features designed for those who spend long hours working, namely BenQ's RevolutionEyes tech. There's also ZeroFlicker, which incorporates a direct lighting system to ensure there are no issues with flickers. Both are said to help reduce visual fatigue.

Said BenQ's Bob Wudeck, "Powerful, intuitive, and extremely advanced, the SW2401PT lets photographers blend colors with incredible accuracy to bring more creative integrity to their work." The model is now available for $499 USD.
