BenQ America is now shipping its BL2711U design monitor engineered specifically for CAD/CAM applications, animators, video editors and graphic artists. This monitor is specified at 4K resolution, 100 percent sRGB color, in addition to CAD/CAM and animation modes.
BenQ’s BL2711U joins the existing BL Series as the first 27-inch 4K monitor specifically created for design and engineering applications. Combining 100 percent sRGB with BenQ’s IPS panel technology, users gain an incredibly precise 10-bit display that renders over one billion hues — ensuring that images are displayed with rich, life-like color integrity. Certified by SolidWorks, the BL2711U also covers the Rec. 709 color space while the unit’s 3840×2160 resolution offers over 300 percent more work space when compared to traditional full HD displays.
Featuring a CAD/CAM mode, the BL2711U allows engineers and designers to bring out detailed object wireframes in software packages such as Pro/E, SolidWorks, AutoCad and CATIA. By automatically altering viewable color and contrast settings, the monitor lets users access highly detailed graphical information in order to increase accuracy in complex designs. For professional animators, the screen’s Animation Mode provides ten levels of display brightness to reveal details in darkened areas without overexposing brighter zones.
Equipped with both picture-in-picture (PIP) and picture-by-picture (PBP), the BL2711U allows users to simultaneously compare images from a separate set of sources while 178/178-degree ultra-wide viewing angles further increase collaboration across teams. Using BenQ’s Display Pilot software, designers are also able to customize their display easily — enabling features such as desktop partitioning, application tuning or auto pivoting.
