The X-Rite i1Display Pro offers professional levels of display calibration for the most discerning photographers, designers and imaging professionals, looking for the highest standards of on-screen colour accuracy for displays, laptops and projectors. The X-Rite i1Display Pro offers professional levels of display calibration for the most discerning photographers, designers and imaging professionals, looking for the highest standards of on-screen colour accuracy for displays, laptops and projectors. The i1Display Pro uses the next-generation of i1Profiler software and offers a choice of 'basic' or 'advanced' modes for the ultimate in flexible control. The 'basic' mode offers a wizard-driven interface, with pre-defined options for the quickest path to professional on-screen colour. The 'advanced' mode offers user-defined options for more sophisticated profiling workflows, together with display testing and quality assurance tools.
Less-trouble Soft Proofing Makes Monitor to Printing More Efficient
BenQ PG series monitors are tested against standard printing color charts and real printing house results to determine which aspects of colorations prove to be the most challenging for graphic professionals. As defined by these test results, the BenQ PG series specializes in color reproduction for tones with a Delta-E value lower than two.
Certified Print-Quality Display
BenQ PG series monitors are Printing-Industry Color Certified (G7/Fogra) according to international ISO standards that improve design and proofing efficiency and lower total cost of ownership. On-screen images have never been so true to the final printed image. Finally, a monitor series that is print-perfect.
Individually Tested to Verify Performance
Each BenQ PG series display is subjected to a verification process on-site upon production in order to test the performance of the monitor in terms of Brightness uniformity, Delta-E and Gamma curve. These results are validated against BenQ and industry color standards—the results of the test are noted on a calibration report, included with each individual PG series monitor.
Excellent Adobe RGB and CMYK Coverage
BenQ PG series monitors cover 100% CMYK color space and 99% Adobe RGB color space, ensuring that the truest red roses, blue skies and green grasses can be reproduced with accuracy.
Expand the Spectrum on a 10-bit IPS Panel
Enjoy the smoothest shading and color transitions in natural gradations on a 10-bit display panel. A 10-bit panel can create more than one billion colors – 64 times the amount of color available on an 8-bit panel – to guarantee silky smooth gradation. The PG series also includes 14-bit processing capability, generating crisper definition and improved gray-level distinction, allowing you see true-to-print natural shades before they get printed.
Predictable Colors with 14-bit 3D LUT
With the 14-bit 3D Look Up Table (LUT), monitors can display the most accurate color mixture. 14-bit 3D LUT improves RGB color blending accuracy, resulting in impeccable color and gray tone reproduction.
Pixel-Perfect Color Authenticity
BenQ PG series monitors feature Delta E=2 to ensure color accuracy throughout project workflow. Delta E=2 not only offers viewers the truest impression of the original image, it also saves time and money by creating reliable colors the first time, every time.
Utilizing the X-Rite calibration device (i1 pro, i1 pro 2 or i1 Display Pro), you can use hardware calibration function to adjust the 3D LUT in the monitor directly, providing smoother and more consistent color tones. Keep the image consistent with the original, without being affected by graphic settings. Subsequently, these calibrated settings are stored directly in the monitor under two of the preset modes.
Brightness Uniformity Function
The Brightness Uniformity Function enables PG series monitors to maintain a consistent image across the entire display. By balancing brightness and chromaticity the Brightness Uniformity Function offers a more consistent viewing experience.
Master Color Profiles with X-rite and BenQ Co-Developed Software
PG series is bundled with Palette Master Software, co-developed with X-rite, the global leader in color science. This software allows users to efficiently validate calibration results according to G7, FOGRA and UGRA printing standards. An intuitive UI Design and range of adjustment parameters make calibrating suitable color profiles quick and easy.
*Support Colorimeter : X-rite i1 Pro / i1 Pro 2 / i1 Display
*Support OS platform: Win XP 32 bit with Service Pack 3 / Win Vista 32 bit with Service Pack 1 / Win 7 32/64 bit or above / Mac OS X 10.6.8 or above.
The PG series is supported by a uniquely designed stand, featuring sleek looks, blue detailing and a wide range of adjustability. The stand itself can be maneuvered to Tilt, Pivot or Swivel in order to suit any ergonomic desktop configuration, regardless of the desk arrangement or the user’s height. The On Screen Display can even rotate automatically for landscape or portrait use.
Factory calibrated preset viewing modes ensure users have a suitable variety of viewing conditions upon first using the monitor. The PG series offers Standard, Adobe RGB, sRGB, illumine. A, D50 and D65 for standard graphical work. For more involved work, the Calibration Mode enables users to save calibration settings and switch between different sets of calibration settings. Additionally the heavily customizable Custom Mode can be used for delicate color tuning.
Full Range of Connectivity
A variety of inputs provides users with flexibility in connecting various input devices. PC users can connect the PG series monitor to a PC via DVI-D, HDMI or DisplayPort while MAC users can connect via the Mini DisplayPort input. A USB 3.0 port and card reader is also available for rapid file transfers and storage solutions.
Ambient lighting and glare can often obstruct the user’s perception of color reproduction. With this in mind, the PG series includes a detachable shading hood made specifically for glare reduction and use in areas where controlling ambient light is not feasible.
