High-quality 10bit monitors providing precise colour accuracy and wide colour gamut have been in a great demand these days and for a reason. Prominent display technology and solutions provider BenQ has announced its latest entry in its professional lineup of high-quality displays – the PV3200PT.
In a nutshell, it’s a dedicated video editing monitor that comes with a 32″ 4K 10-bit UHD IPS display with a maximum resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 designed for video editors and creative professionals in mind. All in all, it’s an IPS-type panel where strong colour consistency is a real strength, with 178°/178° viewing angle and the ability to deliver shades accurately regardless of the position of the display and viewing angle.
The PV3200PT covers 100% sRGB and Rec.709 color space to ensure optimal colour precision on every occasion.
On top of that, the model not only provides a crisp and clear viewing quality, but also offers presets for Rec 709, EBU(European broadcasting union), and SMPTE-C (Color standard for broadcasting in North American TV broadcast) colour spaces. The monitor also includes a hardware-programmable 14-bit 3D LUT that improves RGB color blending accuracy and also can be utilized in conjunction with the included Palette Master Element software and a compatible colorimeter.
Every dedicated tool providing monitor calibration such as the X-Rite i1 DisplayPro, i1 Pro, i1Pro 2 or Datacolor Spyder 4 and Spyder 5 series should do the job. Overall, hardware calibration allows users to adjust the image processing chip on the monitor without changing the graphic card output data. As a result, the process keeps images consistent with its original copies without being affected by graphic settings.
It’s also worth noting that each unit of the PV3200PT display is thoroughly tested upon production to ensure that it will deliver the optimal performance in terms of brightness uniformity and Gamma curve. In addition, each unit comes with an OSD remote controller that provides three preset buttons each set up with a customized display setting such as Rec. 709, EBU, or SMPTE-C. It simply enables users to toggle conveniently between different modes which seem to be an overall efficient and time-effective solution.
The monitor also boasts 5ms response time, 1,000:1 contrast ratio, 350 cd/m2 brightness, along with HDMI 1.4, DP 1.2, mDP 1.2 and USB 3.0 interfaces. It’s still unclear when the model will hit the shelves, and more importantly, at what price. Yet, considering the fact that it’s already present as part of BenQ official monitors lineup for 2016 it’s release shouldn’t be that far away.
