BenQ has showcased a range of monitors designed to provide corporate users with high contrast, ergonomic and economic displays.
The six models in the Business Line series range from 19in to 24in, and the top-end BL2400PT features Vertical Alignment LED-backlit technology, which BenQ claimed as a world first.
The panel provides a 178-degree wide viewing angle, and the 3000:1 contrast ratio helps to ensure deeper blacks and all-round improved clarity. The stand offers 90-degree portrait viewing, forward and back tilt and a 45-degree swivel.
BenQ emphasised the importance of eye health, and the displays come with an Automatic Eye-Protection Sensor. This allows the monitor to continuously measure the lighting level and adjust the display brightness automatically to allow prolonged viewing while reducing eye strain, the manufacturer claimed.
A Smart Reminder can prompt users to follow the recommended 20/20/20 rule, which states that people should look at a spot 20 feet away and blink 20 times for every 20 minutes of computer use.
The displays also come with an Eco Sensor that automatically switches to standby when the user is away from their desk for over 30 seconds and switches back on after five seconds when the user has returned. The monitors power off completely after two hours of not being used.
BenQ claims that the Business Line series could save companies up to 42.5 per cent in energy costs.
Many workers spend eight hours a day in front of a monitor and deserve premium quality products, explained Royce Lye, product marketing manager at BenQ UK.
"[BenQ] will be bringing affordable Vertical Alignment technology to the market [and will] launch a range of monitors over Christmas and the New Year," he said.
The new displays will be available from 1 October, with prices to be confirmed. However, Benq told V3.co.uk that the 24in BL2400 is expected to retail at £189 and the smaller BL2201 at £149.
