BenQ has just announced that its SW270C, a monitor designed for photographers, is now available through the official BenQ store on Lazada for S$1,299.

A 27-inch monitor with a 2,560 x 1,440-pixel resolution, the SW270C boasts 99% Adobe RGB colour gamut (97% for P3), HDR10 compatibility, and 10-bit IPS panel performance with a 16-bit 3D LUT (lookup table).

It also has something called Uniformity Technology, which is BenQ’s way of saying the monitor has been carefully tuned in the factory to offer uniform colour and brightness across the entire screen. For those who work with film content, the pro monitor also supports 24p/25p material to be displayed at native cadence without pulldown. Hardware calibration is also possible with the Palette Master Element software and a calibrator.

Connectivity-wise, the SW270C has two HDMI 2.0 ports, one DisplayPort 1.4 port, and a USB Type-C port that supports power delivery up to 60W. This last bit means your laptop will be charged even when it’s outputting video to the monitor.

To differentiate the SW270C from other pro displays on the market, BenQ has added a few unique features, including a GamutDuo mode that lets you preview the same image in two different colour gamuts side by side. It also comes with a shading hood and a hotkey accessory (Hotkey Puck G2) for you to quickly access your preferred colour modes and features.
