Preserve the true colours you captured to ensure precious moments are perfectly remembered. BenQ Photographer Monitors’ IPS technology and superb 99% Adobe RGB color space provide spectacular colour performance and superwide colour range. Keep the moment and never let it fade away. With four times the resolution of Full HD displays, 4K UHD resolution delivers extraordinary clarity of fine details and textures for visually intensive work with the most perceptible quality in graphics, designs, and photos that human eyes can see.

Fully visualize the true colours of nature. Adobe RGB colour space offers a far greater range of colour reproduction for shades of blue and green, resulting in dramatically more realistic colour representation for outdoor and nature photography. With 10-bit panels producing over one billion colours for natural colour transitions and subtle shading, SW320 guarantees the silkiest, smoothest gradations.

The 14-bit 3D look up table (LUT) improves RGB colour blending accuracy, resulting in impeccable colour reproduction. Precise Delta E≤2 in both Adobe RGB and sRGB colour spaces renders the truest and most representative view of the original image. Hardware calibration allows you to adjust the monitor’s internal image processing chip without changing the graphics card output data, keeping displayed images consistent with the original content without being affected by graphic settings.

Each BenQ Photographer Monitor is individually factory-calibrated upon production to assure precise Delta-E and Gamma performance. Achieving an average Delta E≤2 in both Adobe RGB and sRGB colour spaces, calibration results are validated against industry colour standards to deliver the truest and most representative view of original content. The calibration eliminates slight colour performance variations between individual panels of the same model. Therefore, the calibration data of each report will vary slightly from reports from other displays of the same model.

The Technicolor Colour Certified program is reserved for devices that satisfy the Technicolor specifications to meet the strict standards for colour accuracy widely used in Hollywood and throughout the entertainment industries. BenQ SW320 Photographer Monitor is Technicolor Colour Certified, ensuring consistent and accurate colors for impressive performance in broadcast, film, animation, and entertainment applications.

View your photos in a black and white film effect. Preview your photos in three different black and white presets before performing actual adjustments in your photo processing program. High Dynamic Range (HDR) increases the overall dynamic range between black and white so the resulting image appears closer to what your eyes see in the natural world. To be able to view HDR content from your device, please ensure use of the HDMI cable provided with the SW320 monitor, a High Speed HDMI cable, or Premium High Speed HDMI Certified cable.

Hotkey Puck lets you switch between Adobe RGB, sRGB, and Black & White modes effortlessly. The buttons can also be customized to map other modes or OSD settings, such as brightness and contrast to bring added convenience to photographers.

The SW320 includes a detachable shading hood that effectively reduces screen glare from ambient lighting, ensuring superb colour accuracy required for professional work. The shading hood can be used in both portrait and landscape orientations.
