BenQ releases GL Series LED Monitors
Internationally-renowned provider of visual display innovation, BenQ, proudly announced the release of its GL Series LED Monitors today: The GL930 (18.5”W); GL931 (19”W); GL2030 (20”W); GL2230 (21.5”W) and GL2231 (22”W) LED monitors. With the currently unrivalled 12,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio; 5ms Response Time; and BenQ’s proprietary Senseye® Human Vision Technology, these power-saving LED monitors are made with design in mind – to suit homes, offices, and classrooms. With the new GL series, BenQ aims to bring gorgeous looking monitors into everyone’s lives.
The designers at BenQ were not content with perfunctory design, and thus these Lookin’ Great monitors eschew the cold, clinical high-tech aura for a warm, playful, sense of style. Users will be awed by the absence of rigid lines and hard edges, old ideas freshened by gentle contours and lushly curved surfaces. The grace and light touch of the design as a whole are carried over to details like the bubble pattern that appears in the decorative trim below the screen bezel, which is also cleverly used for the ventilation grille on the back plane. The crowning touch on this magnificent design is the deft interplay of glossy and matte finishes on different areas of the monitor. These monitors will not only be chic enough to become the centerpiece of your desk, but also become the visual highlights in the décor of any room as they are made to accentuate the users’ vibrant and creative living spaces.
Lookin’ Great matters, referring to not only the hardware, but the graphics they show – High dynamic videos can be thoroughly enjoyed on these new GL Series LED monitors without unwanted artifacts and ghosting with a speedy 5 ms response time. BenQ further rewards the users with the enormity of the dynamic contrast ratio (DCR) possessed by these LED monitors, the GL Series has the highest DCR in the world, a truly prodigious amount of 12,000,000:1, dwarfing products from other makers. The contrast precision that BenQ provides, perfectly adapts to every individual scene, providing true black, deeper colour and detailed-definition to reveal the imperceptible elements enshrouded in the darkest games or movie scenes.
The new GL Series features BenQ’s own Senseye® Human Vision Technology – a proprietary image enhancement engine that mimics the human eye – Senseye® enhances the colour, clarity and contrast of video contents and smoothes out quick images through motion optimization to produce fuller, richer and more detailed images.
All the GL Series LED Monitors come in 4 different models with different connectors: GL (D-Sub; DVI-D); GL/A (D-Sub); GL/M (D-Sub; DVI-D; Line-In; Headphone Jack); GL/AM (D-Sub; Line-In; Headphone Jack); Furthermore, the GL/M and GL/AM models come equipped with (1 watt x 2) built-in speakers, perfecting the audiovisual enjoyment without the hassle of additional audio devices.
Unlike the CCFL technology used in the LCD monitors, the GL Series uses energy efficient LED backlighting panels, therefore, in comparison to conventional CCFL monitors, the GL Series consumes less power (14,3%^); and even less (39.3%^) whilst in Eco mode. These new LED monitors are fully Microsoft® Windows 7 certified, making them fully compatible with Windows 7 color systems. Simply connect the GL Series monitors to a Windows 7-equipped computer, and the operating system will instantly recognize the monitor, making setup effortless.
The GL2030/A/AM/M will be available world wide in mid-April, whereas the GL930/A/AM/M; GL931/A/AM/M; GL2230/A/AM/M and GL2231/A/M/AM will be available worldwide in July.
