BenQ Goes Green with New High-Definition LCD Monitors

06 Oct

With 16:9 aspect ratio fast becoming the new global standard among panel manufacturers, BenQ continues to distinguish its brand from the competition with innovation and industry-leading technologies that today include “ultra-green” 16:9 High Definition 720p models for reduced environmental impact and enhanced cost-performance.

The company’s latest LCD monitors – the BenQ E900HD and G900HD feature popular 16:9 format for superior display of HD content as well as a unique 2-lamp design that still emits the bright 300 nits (The candela per square metre {cd/m²} is the SI unit of luminance; nit is a non-SI name) of 4-lamp models, all while saving substantial energy and greatly lessening carbon dioxide and mercury emissions.

These two new models complement BenQ’s HD 16:9 LCD Monitor Series to be released in the Philippines this October, and transplant HD visual enjoyment from living room to desktop gaming, work, and video watching.
Greener is Simply Better
The glossy black BenQ E900HD and silver, black BenQ G900HD LCD monitors not only resonate BenQ’s leadership in visual display with the latest 16:9 format and smart user essentials, but also reflect BenQ’s dedication to environmental responsibility.

The risks and impacts caused by global warming over the last decades have greatly concerned the international community. Environmentalists around the world have gone to great lengths to effectively create awareness on alarming issues such as carbon dioxide reduction and energy conservation.

BenQ – as a global citizen and an eager participant in making the earth a better place to live – is more than ready to do its part.

The BenQ team has designed an exclusive energy-saving technology in developing its latest 18.5” LCD monitor – replacing the traditional four-lamp apparatus with two without affecting the brightness of the monitor screen. BenQ’s 2-lamp design features several benefits over conventional 4-lamp displays.

The BenQ 18.5″ LCD Monitor models still maintain a 300-nits brightness and 10,000:1 DCR (dynamic contrast ratio), but use only 30W total power.

The 10000:1 DCR technology help review even the finest detail especially in darkened and complex motion pictures, providing you with clearer, smoother image during movies and video games.

Through this technology, BenQ LCD Monitor users can cut down power consumption by 25% and decrease carbon dioxide by 25%.

With these new models, BenQ demonstrate how enjoyment extends far beyond hardware and technology, but to the natural world as well.

With BenQ’s new low-energy, low-emission LCD Monitor models, we hope to set the trend not only for 16:9 format, but social and environmental responsibility.

Expanding HD Enjoyment Everywhere
Among the offerings of BenQ’s new 16:9 HD Series LCD Monitors, the new E and G 18.5″ models nonetheless unify today’s digital lifestyle enjoyment by expanding HD viewing application from limited living room use to boundless possibilities in the study, office, classroom, bedroom, kitchen, and more.

A common native resolution used in HD Ready LCD TV panels is 1366 x 768 pixels instead of the ATSC Standard 1280 x 720 pixels. This is due to maximization of manufacturing yield and resolution of VGA, VRAM that comes with a 768 pixel format. Hence, LCD manufacturers adopt the 16:9 ratio compatible for the HD Ready 1080p video standard.

If you have content in 16:9 format and you want to project it onto a 16:10 or 4:3 monitor, your image won’t be able to fill the whole screen. You’ll see two black bands above and below the picture. You can choose to distort your picture, or else zoom in a little to fill up the entire space, but those aren’t very satisfactory workarounds

With the new BenQ monitors, all multimedia, work and gaming applications are beautifully displayed via a smooth 5ms response time, 720p high definition.

Image quality is also rendered flawless with an ultra-high 10,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio that intensifies blacks to reveal subtle dark details in superb definition.

Both models of BenQ feature convenient D-Sub input and DVI-D with HDCP. The E900HD further features headphone jack and integrated speakers.

Both BenQ models – the BenQ E900HD and G900HD LCD monitors are Vista Premium certified.

The BenQ Group is currently comprised of 12 companies that operate independently while sharing resources and leveraging synergies among them. BenQ Corporation, a leading provider of networked digital lifestyle devices, is a multi-faceted company with strengths in mobile communications, visual display and network convergence technologies. BenQ offers unrivalled breadth and depth of products and integrating technologies across platforms through the brand promise of “Enjoyment Matters”.

BenQ has recently appointed Astech Penson Distributors Incorporated as its distibutor for BenQ LCD monitors.
