From BenQ Birmingham, UK, 25th March 2021 - BenQ, internationally renowned provider of digital lifestyle devices, announced today the PhotoVue SW271C photographer monitor, the latest addition 4K monitor for photographers and videographers.

With improved 3rd generation Uniformity Technology, the SW271C is a professional monitor for photographers and videographers alike, delivering exceptional colour accuracy with a crisp 4K resolution. Discover extraordinary clarity of fine details and textures, on a 16-bit panel with 99% Adobe RGB, 100% sRGB/Rec.709, and 90% DCI-P3/Display P3 colour space coverage.  

Designed for photo and video editing, the SW271C is built with AQCOLOR Technology for industry-standard colour performance and HDR with 24/25/30P video format support to capture the perfect moment in motion.

“SW271C is perfect for those photographers whose work is ever-evolving and where video editing is becoming prominent, for people who do both photo and video retouching and so require wide colour gamuts, and for whom professional colour accuracy and colour reproduction are critical when buying a monitor.” said Steve Chu, President of BenQ Europe.

Operating from a single USB-C cable for video, audio, data, and power, the SW271C is equipped with a height-adjustable stand and a detachable professional shading hood.

Colour You Can Trust

The SW271C has greater panel performance than its predecessors as well as 3rd generation colour Uniformity Technology, providing photographers and videographers with the ultimate platform for accurate photo and video editing.

The Adobe 99% RGB wide-gamut colour space offers a greater range of colour reproduction for shades of blue and green, resulting in a more realistic colour representation for outdoor and nature photography. Enrich colour palettes with 99% Adobe RGB, 90% DCI-P3 colour standards and 100% of sRGB/Rec.709.

To improve RGB colour blending accuracy, the 16-bit 3D Look Up Table (LUT) offers impeccable colour reproduction that creatives can trust. Having Delta E≤2 accuracy in both Adobe RGB and sRGB colour spaces gives the truest and most representative view of the original image.

Of course, the SW271C features the unique BenQ AQCOLOR technology, meaning the display presents industry-standard colour precisely as it is intended to appear. Led by a colour expert, the BenQ team took part in the ICC and ISO to establish colour-related standards and implementation guidelines.

Capture Perfect Moments

The SW271C is perfect for photographers who also create video content or videographers for whom video reproduction is crucial to their work. It supports 24P/25P/30P film content to be displayed at native cadence without pulldown, which can distort playback of the source video.

What’s more, the SW271C supports two HDR formats (HDR10 and HLG), making it a great monitor for video editing and colour grading. Videographers can preview the HDR effect of the video content for intelligent brightness and contrast control.

SDI and HDMI devices are compatible with the SW271C, meaning videographers can connect their SDI devices to the monitor for stable and non-compressed signal transmission and real video quality when using AJA or BlackMagic systems.

Smart Software

From capturing the image to retouching to the final print, the SW271C is uniquely equipped to deliver a streamlined, smooth retouching-to-printing process with the Paper Color Sync software.

Eliminating guesswork, the included Paper Color Sync software allows photographers to easily and efficiently display photo previews that match the final print.

The SW271C is compatible with the world-leading calibration software CalMAN as well as LightSpace software for videographers. It also comes with an individualised factory colour calibration report and certification from CalMAN and PANTONE to give creative professionals confidence in the colour displayed on screen.


Power Through with USB-C

For more convenience, the SW271C now includes USB-C 60W power delivery as well as standard video/audio/data transmission via a single cable.

The 2nd generation Hotkey Puck features a new dial and rotation key for faster and more efficient on-screen-display choice, allowing users to view content simultaneously in different colour spaces side-by-side for added comparison.
