6 December 2016. Following on from the success of the hugely popular, TIPA award winning 27" SW2700PT monitor designed for photography professionals, BenQ have raised the bar by launching the larger 31.5” SW320 monitor - packed with even more features.
 
The SW320 is designed for photographers that require accurate colour and a large viewing area for editing. With features such as an included monitor hood, True 10-bit IPS back panel, hardware calibration, 99% Adobe RGB colour space and a 14-Bit 3D LUT, it’s clear that this monitor is designed for image perfection.

The SW320 features a 4K UHD resolution and 100% Rec 709 colour gamut, making it also ideal for filmmakers and photographers that work with video.

HDR (High Dynamic Range) has been introduced to offer higher contrast, vivid colours and brighter images. It allows professionals to display true-to-life video with the same accurate colour and detail it was captured with. It also has an expanded contrast ratio to make the white and black points within the image, closer to “true” white and black.
