Slim Bezel, MHL-Equipped Smart Display With RevolutionEyes(TM) Technology Offers Optimized Delivery of Mobile Entertainment
COSTA MESA, Calif. — March 24, 2015 — BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions, today introduced its newly minted gold version of the popular EW2440L monitor. Loaded with features that take mobile content to the screen, the vertical alignment display boasts mobile high-definition link (MHL(R)) technology, BenQ’s “Cinema Mode,” and razor-sharp 3000:1 contrast ratios that allow gaming, media streaming, and other external entertainment sources to be easily viewed on the full HD 24-inch screen (1920×1080). Equipped with BenQ’s signature RevolutionEyes(TM) technology, the display eliminates traditional LED flicker issues and reduces harmful blue light, enabling seamless viewing sessions and increased user comfort.
“The EW2440L is one of BenQ’s standouts in overall design and concept,” said Bob Wudeck, Associate Vice President, Strategy and Business Development at BenQ America Corp. “With options aimed at optimizing picture quality and an attractive gold casing that complements the latest iPhones and MacBooks, consumers can bring cloud-based entertainment right into their home or office via this sleek, feature-rich display.”
With its new gold casing and stylish edge-to-edge slim bezel design, the EW2440L complements today’s elegant home and office environments. The monitor enables easy notebook PC, cable, console gaming, or smart device connections using HDMI(R) and MHL technology, allowing users to transfer small-screen content directly to the full HD display from any portable device. With its true-black color and a cinema-class video processor for stunning image quality, the EW2440L is purpose-built to provide today’s cloud-based content consumers with simple, forward-thinking features that take picture quality to a whole new level.
In “Cinema Mode,” the EW2440L heightens the movie experience via BenQ’s exclusive color engine technology, which dynamically adapts to specific video content and automatically brightens dark scenes without overexposing color levels, thus preserving vital picture details. With BenQ’s “Super Resolution,” the display also simulates high-resolution images in lower-quality video by increasing pixel density — creating an amazing viewing experience regardless of the source. To further enhance online content viewing, the devices’ “Smart Focus” feature highlights selected video windows or screen areas to reduce distractions from other locations on the display.
To enable a more comfortable viewing experience, the EW2440L comes equipped with BenQ’s RevolutionEyes technology. Since backlight controllers in regular monitors can cause rapid flickering at a rate of 200Hz per second when brightness is reduced from its maximum level, user comfort can be compromised in applications where longer viewing sessions are required. Designed to counter this effect, BenQ’s ZeroFlicker(TM) technology eliminates traditional LED flicker issues using a direct LED-backlight system that enables users to experience improved visual comfort and reduced eye fatigue. Users can also easily lower the device’s blue light output to further boost viewer comfort simply by using the device’s hotkeys.
For audio only situations, the EW2440L features a “Speaker Only” mode, which allows users to connect their players directly to the monitors’ speakers without powering on the screen, resulting in a complete audio immersion experience while consuming less power. In line with the series’ attractive design and feature-rich functionality, the monitor sports touch onscreen display and hotkeys, enabling users to switch between settings easily and fully customize their experience.
Available now in stylish gold, the EW2440L retails for $269. More information on the full line of BenQ products is available at www.BenQ.us.
