Video editors looking for the new gold standard for color accuracy and depth will love the BenQ SW321C monitor.
Designed for professional photographers and video editors alike, this new BenQ 4K photographer monitor could be a video professional’s dream come true. The SW321C seems like one of the best new options out there for color accuracy, depth, and crisp resolution.
Let’s take a look at this new monitor – let’s go through some of the specs, bells and whistles – and see if it’s the right investment for your home or studio video editing setup.
It all depends on the color
So the SW321C will deliver real and beautiful colors the first time. With its second generation AQCOLOR and Uniformity technology, the SW321C should cover a large color space (99% Adobe RGB / 95% DCI-P3 & Display P3) and offer great brightness as hundreds of sub-regions for screen width precise color.
For photographers, the SW321C also includes proprietary BenQ technology that allows you to preview the print results on your monitor so you can edit photos efficiently, with the confidence that your final prints will look exactly the same.
The same technology applies to video professionals as well, as the SW321C should give you the most accurate representation of color that you will ultimately see every time you export and upload. This means you can finally do color grading and grading without worrying that all of your work may not reflect your exact LUTs and looks.
Video editing HDR technology
The SW321C also has plenty of video editing support with its HDR technology, which allows video professionals to preview the HDR effect for all of their video content. This is big news for video professionals looking to streamline their digital workflow as BenQ’s new SW series monitors offer numerous upgrades to support new video formats for more dynamic playback capabilities.
As a bonus, the SW321C offers access to video calibration software like CalMAN and LightSpace to help adjust your display’s 3D LUT for better image accuracy and consistency at all levels.
Design concept and functions
Overall, BenQ is a very reliable brand name in terms of its industrial design. It is made from matte gray materials, carefully selected polymer and 18 degree gray for a particularly professional look and has an easy-to-use and easy-to-install anti-glare hood for complete glare and reflection dissipation.
In pretty much every way, the new SW321C has been tailored for optimal performance, smooth workflow and – again – real and beautiful colors. You can be sure that your product will also meet all of the advertised values, as the SW321C (as well as SW271C) is pre-calibrated for immediate use and color accuracy.
