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 standardsâ€”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 â€“ 64 times the amount of colour available on an 8-bit panel â€“ 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 Colors 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 grey tone reproduction.
Pixel-Perfect Color Authenticity BenQ PG series monitors feature an average Delta E of 2 or lower to ensure colour accuracy throughout project workflow. An average Delta Eâ‰¤2 not only offers viewers the truest impression of the original image, it also saves time and money by creating reliable colors the first time, every time.
Hardware Calibration Utilising 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. Subsequently, these calibrated settings are stored directly in the monitor under two of the preset modes.
Brightness Uniformity Function The Brightness Uniformity Function enables PG series monitors to maintain a consistent image across the entire display. By balancing brightness and chromaticity the Brightness Uniformity Function offers a more consistent viewing experience. Master Color Profiles with X-rite and BenQ Co-Developed Software PG series is bundled with Palette Master Software, co-developed with X-rite, the global leader in colour science. This software allows users to efficiently validate calibration results according to G7, FOGRA and UGRA printing standards. An intuitive UI Design and range of adjustment parameters make calibrating suitable colour profiles quick and easy.

Shading Hood Ambient lighting and glare can often obstruct the userâ€™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.
Less-trouble Soft Proofing Makes Monitor to Printing More Efficient BenQ PG series monitors are tested against standard printing colour charts and real printing house results to determine which aspects of colorations prove to be the most challenging for graphic professionals. As defined by these test results, the BenQ PG series specialises in colour reproduction for tones with an average Delta-E value lower than two.
