The PD2700U DesignVue Designer 27″ 16:9 IPS Monitor from BenQ delivers clarity and color precision, with support for 100% of the sRGB and Rec. 709 color gamuts, as well as HDR10, to help designers fulfill their ideas. Driven by BenQ’s AQCOLOR technology and a UHD 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 with a 60 Hz refresh rate, the PD2700U is coupled with three special modes – CAD/CAM, Animation, and Darkroom – each of which being tailored for different scenarios, allowing users in different fields to achieve similar results.
The PD2700U features In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology, an anti-glare panel coating, 10-bit support for 1.07 billion colors, a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio, a static contrast ratio of 1300:1, a dynamic contrast ratio of 20M:1, a 350 cd/m2 brightness rating, 163 ppi, and a 5 ms (GtG) response time. Using the 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles, it is possible to watch content from virtually any position. There is also one HDMI 2.0 input, one DisplayPort 1.2, one Mini DisplayPort 1.2 input, and one DisplayPort output for daisy-chaining multiple displays together using MST (multi-stream transport) technology, plus four USB 3.0 Type-A and two USB 3.0 Type-B ports. Audio can be output using the dual integrated 2W speakers or the 3.5mm headphone jack.
BenQ’s PD2700U also supports HDCP 2.2, Picture-in-Picture, Picture-by-Picture, Flicker-Free technology, Low Blue Light technology, Brightness Intelligence technology and more. To further help improve viewing and accessibility, the PD2700U features a vertical tilt of -5 to 20°, a left/right swivel of ±45°, a clockwise/counterclockwise pivot of 90°, and a height adjustment of 5.51″. It is certified for Mac, Windows 10, 8.1, 8, and 7, and SolidWorks.
Color Accuracy and Resolution
UHD 4K Resolution
UHD 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution offers a great amount of clarity for fine details and depth of subtle textures optimized for visually intensive work in animation, visual effects, graphics, and photos.
True Colors Right Before You
Devoted to meet the latest professional color standard, BenQ has developed AQCOLOR technology to uphold the concept of “Accurate Reproduction.” BenQ has invited a color expert to lead the team, and also joined ICC (International Color Consortium) and ISO (International Standard Organization) to establish color-related standards and implementation.
Reference-Grade Color Performance with 10-Bit, 100% sRGB and Rec. 709
Covering 100% of sRGB and Rec. 709 color spaces, the PD2700U’s advanced IPS wide viewing angle technology minimizes color shift to inspire greater design confidence. 100% sRGB color gamut accuracy adheres to industry standards in digital production, and Rec. 709 reproduces accurate resolution, frame rate, color gamut, gamma, and white point performance in high-definition video work.
Professionally Factory-Calibrated for Color Accuracy
Each BenQ Designer Monitor is individually factory-calibrated upon production to assure precise Delta-E and Gamma performance. Calibration results are validated against industry color standards to deliver the truest and most representative view of original content. Calibration eliminates slight color performance variations between individual panels of the same model. Therefore, the calibration data of each report will vary slightly from reports from other displays of the same model.
HDR10 (ST2084) Support
BenQ’s DesignVue PD2700U is equipped with HDR10 technology to let designers preview video content’s HDR effect during the editing process, helping to ensure desirable outcomes for their final works.
Simple, Functional Design for Increased Efficiency
Offering greater contrast for lines and shapes in technical illustrations, CAD/CAM mode accentuates fine details to produce increased display performance in Pro/E, SolidWorks, AutoCAD, CATIA, or other design software.
Often problematic for designers working with intricate details in dark images, Animation Mode enhances the brightness of dark areas without overexposing bright regions. Animation mode provides 10 levels of display brightness to clearly bring out subtleties in ambient lighting.
Adjusting image brightness and contrast for greater clarity and sharp details, Darkroom Mode creates improved settings for work in darkened post-processing environments.
Smart Efficiency and Productivity Enhancers
Keyboard Video Mouse (KVM) Switch
KVM Switch functionality allows users to display and control content from two different PC systems on one screen using just one set of keyboard and mouse to save space and boost work efficiency.
A Daisy-Chain Configuration for Greater Productivity
The BenQ PD2700U is a daisy-chaining enabled display equipped with multi-stream transport technology (MST), allowing you to extend your notebook’s screen across several displays using its DisplayPort output for a multiple monitor setup. You can appreciate the boundless views from PD2700U’s edge-to-edge design with minimal bezels on all four sides.
Improve your workflow and enhance productivity by switching on DualView to showcase designs in two modes (sRGB and CAD/CAM) side-by-side without the need for two screens.
Caring for Your Eyes
BenQ’s eye-care technologies help reduce eye fatigue for user comfort, enhanced productivity, and workplace safety during extended use.
Eliminate Eye Strain in Ambient Light
Brightness Intelligence Technology (B.I.Tech.) monitors ambient light in your viewing environment and actively adjusts screen brightness for a comfortable viewing experience.
Low Blue Light Technology
BenQ Low Blue Light Technology is designed to filter out harmful blue light, effectively diminishing eye fatigue and irritation.
Flicker-free helps eliminate flickering at all brightness levels and reduces eye fatigue effectively. Conventional LCD screens flicker at the rate of 250 times per second. Your eyes may not see the flickers but they can certainly feel them. So relieve your eyes from the uncomfortable flickering effect by switching to a BenQ flicker-free monitor.
