BenQ offering 4K UHD monitor for editing pros

For video editors looking for a new monitor, BenQ America has made available the PV3200PT IPS, which is purpose-built for post workflows. The 32-inch 4K Ultra HD display offers color precision via 10-bit, 100 percent sRGB color, which follows the Rec. 709 standard. Available now, the unit sells for $1,499.

The PV3200PT reproduces color tones with a Delta-E value of less than or equal to two and features a 14-bit 3D LUT to display an accurate color mixture for improved RGB color blending. By balancing brightness to a deviation and chromaticity less than 10 percent, the monitor offers a more consistent viewing experience. The monitor also features simple hardware and software calibration by allowing users to adjust the unit’s image processing chip without altering graphics card data.

An OSD controller provides preset custom modes so users can easily switch between Rec. 709, EBU and SMPTE-C modes. The PV3200PT is part of BenQ’s Eye-Care models, which are designed to increase visual comfort while performing common computer tasks. While conventional screens flicker at a rate of 200 times per second, BenQ’s ZeroFlicker technology eliminates flickering at all brightness levels, which reduces eye fatigue and provides a more comfortable viewing experience during prolonged sessions of computer use. Further capabilities include ergonomic customization such as height, tilt, pivot and swivel adjustments.
