Dual Use BenQ Monitor

BenQ’s latest offering in the LCD monitor market is said to have a dual purpose.

BenQ’ s new 27-inch LCD monitor has been designed as both a multi-function work place unit, as well as being able to double as a screen to watch television programmes and DVDs, or other digital content.

It can be used as a main desktop display, multi-monitor setup, or as a second display to a notebook, the large-format 27-inch size affords higher work productivity with less scrolling and more content display.

As an entertainment centerpiece, the M2700HD visually outperforms similar-sized/-priced TVs, most notably by displaying in Full HD 1080p (unlike comparable TVs which display in 720p).

Senseye Human Vision Technology innately optimises picture quality via six proprietary calibration techniques encompassing brightness, dynamic contrast ratio, hue, saturation, 3D noise reduction, and dual-trace sharpness.

Furthermore, Senseye 3 digital image enhancement calibrates true colors in all multimedia and office display scenarios via the six preset viewing modes: standard (office and Internet), movie (DVD and TV), game, photo, sRGB (for 100 percent colour consistency across all sRGB devices), and Eco (for power-savings) modes.

The native 16:9 aspect ratio likewise promotes uncompromised definition, true-to-source proportions without distortion, and the assurance that every pixel on the screen is utilized. 
Complementing visual prowess is theatre-quality sound made possible by EmbracingSound, a new stereo surround technology that enables the listener to experience their content’s full spatial information. There are five surround sound modes – standard, movie, game, pop, rock.

Whether for work or play or both, the M2700HD has the multi-tasking user connected to all digital devices without the hassle of unplugging, switching, and reconnecting cables. 

Thirteen connectors for video in, audio in, and audio out include dual HDMI 1.3 inputs for high-bandwidth and deep-color sources such as set-top boxes, gaming consoles, and Blu-ray players.  Handy component, composite, and SPDIF connecters further accommodate all traditional AV devices (like VCRs, DVD players, and camcorders).
A smart remote control caters to TV-style viewing, enabling the user to switch video sources, adjust audio options, and access the OSD from the couch, the bed, or other distance.
