Budget 2K QHD Grading & Editing Monitor – The Technicolor Color-Certified Rec. 709 BenQ PD2710QC
BenQ began shipping their new 100% sRGB and Rec. 709 27 inch monitor. The attractively titled and very catchy PD2710QC. has an IPS LED display with wide viewing angles and a max resolution of 2560×1440.
Billed as a monitor for designers, I imagine with it’s Technicolor Color-Certified full Rec. 709 support it would be a great buy for the freelance colorist, motion designer, or editor with it’s extremely attractive $599 price point. Being a longtime BenQ monitor user I am really taking a look at these as an upgrade for my home workstation setup where my output Panasonic monitor is calibrated and it drives me a little crazy seeing my computer monitors looking different. Some nights I’d rather just edit on the monitors while keeping the color accuracy of the Panasonic.
Other main features include it’s USB-C Docking station that sends 61 watts through the wire to power a laptop or other device, flicker-free operation to try and reduce eye strain, and a Darkroom mode which adjusts the brightness and contrast for appropriate viewing in a color suite or other post room where the lighting is low intensity.
