BenQ EW2770QZ, the first monitor with Brightness Intelligence Plus

BenQ has announced the launch of its new EW2770QZ monitor, with a 27-inch AHVA panel with QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution that features exclusive Brightness Intelligence Plus (BI+) technology, which incorporates an ambient light sensor to adjust Intelligent both the brightness and color temperature of the screen to provide the best viewing experience.

BenQ has announced the launch of its new EW2770QZ monitor

The BenQ EW2770QZ equips, as we said before, a 27-inch AHVA (Advanced Hyper Viewing Angle) IPS-type panel that is manufactured by AU Optronics. It has 1440p resolution and a refresh rate of 60Hz, with 5ms GtG response time, 178 degree viewing angles, 350 cd / m2 maximum brightness and a contrast ratio of 1000 to 1. As video inputs We found two HDMI 1.4 and a DisplayPort 1.2.

To finish with the technical characteristics, it is possible to mention that the monitor counts on Flicker Free and Low Blue Light anti-blinking technology, it shows images with 100% of the sRGB color spectrum (16.7 million colors) and with real depth of 8 bits.

What is Brightness Intelligence Plus technology?

It is not the same to use a monitor with the warm light of the home, with the aggressive white light of an office or when the sun is giving to the screen. The EW2770QZ is the world’s first monitor to incorporate BI+ technology. Thanks to its special sensor, it is able to capture ambient light and ambient colors around the monitor, changing – thanks to proprietary algorithms – in real time the brightness and color temperature of the screen to provide an excellent viewing experience at the same time reducing the user’s eye fatigue.

Being able to simultaneously detect the intensity of the content displayed on the screen and the ambient light, the EW2770QZ automatically adjusts bright scenes to avoid overexposure, while dark scenes preserve the intense black colors, showing better details and clarity . Even with the manually dimmed brightness, BI+ technology is able to intensify colors and saturation to maintain good color accuracy with a very smooth color gradation.

BenQ has not announced the date of availability or the price of this monitor, so we will have to wait for the last details. However, given the resolution and exclusivity of the technology we can expect it to be relatively expensive.

CeBIT 2012: laser projectors by Acer and BenQ

If 2011 was undeniably the year of the LED on the projector market, the laser appears to be in the spotlight this year. Two manufacturers have actually used the CeBIT to announce three projectors of this type.

BenQ BlueCore LX60ST and LW61ST
BenQ has announced two projectors to laser light source, the LX60ST and LW61ST, which share most of their data sheets. A laser light source (as opposed to laser projection process entirely) has the advantage of offering the advantages of the LED without its main disadvantage: low light. The laser therefore offers great endurance, 10 000 h at 2000 ANSI lumens and even 20,000 hours in eco, a high reactivity with a start and stop an instant and, not to spoil, a rate record claimed contrast 80 000:1 and a support for the 3D (active glasses optional). Both models are identical except that one (the LX60ST) houses a DLP solution delivering an XGA resolution ( 1024 x 768 pixels) at 4:3 ratio, while the other (the LW61ST) provides a definition WXGA (1280 x 800 pixels) in the ratio 16:10. Designed for office use, especially in education. They offer a short-range projection of video inputs and HDMI 1.3, VGA, S-Video, composite, but also Ethernet and USB, and supports a pair of speakers 10 W each. Function Eco Blank displaying a blank screen and reducing the brightness to 10% finally allows teachers to attract the attention of their students. The BenQ BlueCore LX60ST and LW61ST will be sold by the end March retail price of 2,200 euros.

Acer K520

Designed also for office use, the Acer K520 is a runner up behind the BenQ LX60ST. It adopts the same process with an XGA DLP laser light source, claimed the same maximum brightness of 2000 ANSI lumens, the same refresh rate of 120 Hz for 3D active and a contrast ratio of 000:1 similar 100. It is however stick to a more common connectivity with HDMI, VGA, composite, and does not carry its own speakers. Release date and price for the sale of this Acer K520 were not communicated.
