BenQ SW240 Pro 24in IPS LCD Monitor with FREE Shading Hood
Highlight and Design Concept
Supported by BenQ’s AQCOLOR Technology, the new 24.1” monitor covers industry standard space of 99% Adobe RGB and 100% sRGB and delivers factory-calibrated colour accuracy to ensure brilliant colours for photographers.
As the frontrunner of the professional monitor industry, BenQ has never slowed down but sought out further improvement for the photographers especially in the respect of the quality of colour reproduction, viewing comfort and user convenience. SW240 has a perfect screen size for professional photographers to do their work with ease by 24.1” 16:10 panel. It can display two full A4 pages plus tool palettes for photographers to easily compare the content on the screen. Furthermore, BenQ Team always seeks the easiest way for our users to use the monitor.
By upgrading user experience, we develop a new OSD hotkey (Colour Mode HotKey) for switching different colour modes smartly. Users can switch colour modes with ease. Also SW240 has its edge-to-edge ultra slim bezels, allowing photographers to set up a dual-monitor workspace for a grand view.
Knowing that ambient lighting can obstruct colour accuracy, SW series photographer monitors all come with a detachable shading hood to reduce screen glare to deliver the most accurate colours. The newly-designed shading hood can be used at portrait orientation as well as at landscape orientation. In consideration of consumers’ preference, we will sell the shading hood as an optional accessory for SW240.
BenQ Team knows: a small detail can make a big difference. We’ve noticed that the colour of the monitor bezels can so affect the photographer’s viewing experience that we experimented with a variety of colours, aiming to find the right one to minimise reflection and maintain the accuracy of the display. After extensive and intensive research, SW240 monitor implements a neutral grey colour on the surface to ensure the optimal viewing experience for photography professionals.

The 14-bit 3D Look Up Table (LUT) attains a colour difference of Delta E≤2 in both Adobe RGB and sRGB colour spaces and improves RGB colour blending and accuracy, resulting in impeccable colour and grey tone reproduction.
Hardware (HW) Calibration
With the help of BenQ’s Palette Master Element Software, photographers can calibrate the monitor with a colorimeter to access to the internal image processing chip. So the calibration can be done on the internal image processing chip without affecting the graphics card.
Colour Mode HotKey
Colour modes can be swiftly switched by this new OSD hotkey. Furthermore, the three default colour modes on the menu can also be adjusted by pressing 5 seconds on the hotkey.
The SW240 supports the detachable shading hood that can effectively reduce the monitor’s screen glare resulting from ambient lighting, ensuring superb colour accuracy required for professional work.
