Less-trouble Soft Proofing Makes Colour Management More Efficient
BenQ PG series monitors are tested against standard printing colour charts and real printing house results to determine which aspects of colourations prove to be the most challenging for graphic professionals. As defined by these test results, the BenQ PG series specializes in colour reproduction for tones with a Delta-E value lower than two.
Certified Print-Quality Display
BenQ PG series monitors are Printing-Industry Colour Certified (G7/Fogra) according to international ISO standards that improve design and proofing efficiency and lower total cost of ownership. On-screen images have never been so true to the final printed image. Finally, a monitor series that is print-perfect.
Individually Tested to Verify Performance
Each BenQ PG series display is subjected to a verification process on-site upon production in order to test the performance of the monitor in terms of Brightness uniformity, Delta-E and Gamma curve. These results are validated against BenQ and industry colour standards—the results of the test are noted on a calibration report, included with each individual PG series monitor.
Excellent Adobe RGB and CMYK Coverage
BenQ PG series monitors cover 100% CMYK colour space and 99% Adobe RGB colour space, ensuring that the truest red roses, blue skies and green grasses can be reproduced with accuracy.
Expand the Spectrum on a 10-bit IPS Panel
Enjoy the smoothest shading and colour transitions in natural gradations on a 10-bit display panel. A 10-bit panel can create more than one billion colours – 64 times the amount of colour available on an 8-bit panel – to guarantee silky smooth gradation. The PG series also includes 14-bit processing capability, generating crisper definition and improved gray-level distinction, allowing you see true-to-print natural shades before they get printed.
Predictable Colours with 14-bit 3D LUT
With the 14-bit 3D Look Up Table (LUT), monitors can display the most accurate colour mixture. 14-bit 3D LUT improves RGB colour blending accuracy, resulting in impeccable colour and gray tone reproduction.
Perfect Colour Authenticity
BenQ PG series monitors feature Delta E≤2 in both Adobe RGB and sRGB colour spaces to ensure colours are displayed accurately in every stage of web design, photo retouch and pre-press workflow. Delta E≤2 not only offers viewers the truest appearance of the original image, it also saves time and money by creating reliable colours and providing promising result when matching images the first time, every time.
Utilizing the X-Rite calibration device (i1 pro, i1 pro 2 or i1 Display Pro), you can use hardware calibration function to adjust the 3D LUT in the monitor directly, providing smoother and more consistent colour tones. Keep the image consistent with the original, without being affected by graphic settings. Subsequently, these calibrated settings are stored directly in the monitor under two of the preset modes.
Brightness Uniformity is achieved via a delicate process involving utilizing high precision apparatus to meticulously fine-tuning hundreds of sub-regions of the entire screen. This feature enables PG series monitors to maintain a consistent colour appearance across the entire display area. By preciously controlling brightness and chromaticity of each sub-region, Brightness Uniformity Function offers a more authentic and consistent viewing experience.
The PG series is supported by a uniquely designed stand, featuring sleek looks, blue detailing and a wide range of adjustability. The stand itself can be maneuvered to Tilt, Pivot or Swivel in order to suit any ergonomic desktop configuration, regardless of the desk arrangement or the user’s height. The On Screen Display can even rotate automatically for landscape or portrait use.
Factory calibrated preset viewing modes ensure users have a suitable variety of viewing conditions upon first using the monitor. The PG series offers Standard, Adobe RGB, sRGB, illumine. A, D50 and D65 for standard graphical work. For more involved work, the Calibration Mode enables users to save calibration settings and switch between different sets of calibration settings. Additionally the heavily customizable Custom Mode can be used for delicate colour tuning.
Full Range of Connectivity
A variety of inputs provides users with flexibility in connecting various input devices. PC users can connect the PG series monitor to a PC via DVI-D, HDMI or DisplayPort while MAC users can connect via the Mini DisplayPort input. Two USB 3.0 ports and card reader are also available for rapid file transfers and storage solutions.
Ambient lighting and glare can often obstruct the user’s perception of colour reproduction. With this in mind, the PG series includes a detachable shading hood made specifically for glare reduction and use in areas where controlling ambient light is not feasible.
