BenQ had launched the world's first esports monitor over 14 years ago. Continuous innovation and collaboration with champion gamers have allowed BenQ to develop products that meet the evolving demands of the gaming community. The 540 Hz refresh rate, achieved through advanced TN panel technology, significantly improves the gaming experience by reducing motion blur and enhancing visual clarity, giving competitive gamers a distinct edge.

Achieving Color Accuracy 

Color calibration is crucial for both professional and gaming monitors. BenQ has developed proprietary color calibration software tailored for different needs. For gaming monitors like MOBIUS, BenQ uses Color Shuttle technology to enhance color vibrancy and allow users to save preset color modes for specific games, ensuring optimal visual performance during gameplay.

For professional photography and designer monitors, accurate color reproduction is essential. BenQ’s professional monitors, including the recently launched SW242Q for photographers and PD3225U for designers, aim to display colors exactly as they appear in real life, ensuring consistency across different devices and formats. This is increasingly important as digital content creation grows. BenQ’s color management monitors have become a must-have for professionals, offering precise color calibration that supports high-quality content production.

Innovations in Monitors for Programmers and Developers

BenQ’s RD series of monitors, including the recently launched RD240Q, is specifically designed to improve coding efficiency and eye comfort for programmers and developers. These monitors address the unique challenges faced by coders, such as working in dark environments with high contrast code displays. Mr. Singh noted that BenQ's coding monitors enhance contrast and color differentiation to make code more readable, improving coding speed and accuracy.

BenQ continues to expand its portfolio, aiming to enhance the coding experience with various aspect ratios and resolutions.

Sustainable Practices in BenQ’s Manufacturing Process

BenQ is committed to sustainability across all levels of its manufacturing process. Mr. Singh detailed several initiatives, including optimizing energy use in factories, extensive use of solar panels, and eliminating hazardous materials from products. BenQ’s factories in Taiwan utilize recycled materials for packaging and adhere to stringent energy management practices. These efforts reflect BenQ’s dedication to reducing environmental impact and promoting eco-friendly practices in the technology industry.
