Latest Member of Acclaimed RL Series Is Optimized for Industry's Most Popular Gaming Titles; Offers Advanced Eye-Care Technology for Exceptional Monitor Performance

EINDHOVEN, THE NETHERLANDS, 7th August 2015 — BenQ, a globally renowned LED and gaming monitor expert, will launch its new RL2460HT gaming monitor at this year's Gamescom. A dedicated professional monitor for some of the gaming industry's largest categories — console gaming, RTS- and MOBA-style games, and also fighting games — the RL2460HT is equipped with BenQ's exclusive Eye-Care technology to provide the visual comfort that gamers need for better performance during prolonged hours of competitive play.

The new RL2460HT has been specifically optimized for real-time strategy (RTS) like StarCraft® ll: Heart of the Swarm™, first-person shooter (FPS) console games such as Call of Duty®: Ghosts, MOBA-style games like League of Legends™, and Defense of the Ancients (Dota 2), as well as for popular fighting games such as Mortal Kombat X™.

To enhance monitor performance, the RL2460HT's Eye-Care technology includes flicker-free capabilities that eliminate traditional LED flicker issues, adding to eSports enthusiasts' comfort during competitive action and longer gaming sessions. The RL2460HT also features BenQ's Black eQualizer, which enables total gaming visibility by allowing players to adjust brightness without over-exposing white levels, revealing critical combat details with improved visibility in darkened areas. Additionally, BenQ's Low Blue Light technology removes up to 70 percent of blue spectrum light to protect gamers' eyes during extended periods of playing, with several low blue light levels that automatically adjust emission without affecting picture quality.

With the RL2460HT's HDMI Out port, pro gamers can stream their game content after it goes through the monitor so that the audience sees exactly what the player sees or saw?, without risk of lag or delay to the player. In this manner, pro gamers can preserve monitor speed and performance regardless of the streaming system used. The monitor provides a height-adjustable stand with a precision adjustment marker system that makes setup fast and easy, enabling the player to duplicate the precise setup every time and everywhere.

Like the other monitors in the BenQ RL series, the RL2460HT includes a LED-powered TN panel with virtually no input lag and industry-leading 1ms response time. Other features include integrated speakers, two HDMI ports along with standard DVI and VGA connections, and Smart Scaling for gaming professionals to customize their screen viewing area for optimal viewing performance.

<![CDATA[<p><strong>Racing Gets Real with the BenQ XR3501 Curved LCD Gaming Monitor</strong></p> ]]> 2015-05-19 00:00:00.0

EINDHOVEN, THE NETHERLANDS, June 12, 2015 – How real do you want your racing? Do you want to feel the engine rattle your bones and your stomach drop as you take a banked curve at nearly 200 miles per hour? Get ready, because BenQ, a world-leading human technology and solutions provider — and professional gaming monitor pioneer — today released the ultimate high-performance curved LCD monitor designed for a more immersive racing experience: The XR3501. Created for demanding racing gamers, the XR3501straps players in the driver’s seat with its 2000R curvature — the most of any LCD monitor — and extra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio.
Racing gamers want a real driving experience, and that is exactly what the XR3501 delivers in a high-speed feast for the senses that will have players living every heart-pounding moment of the race. Designed with extensive input from experts on and off the track, the XR3501 features a full 35-inch screen and 2560x1080 resolution for visuals that will make you brace for every intense turn as you fight to break free of the pack. The 144Hz refresh rate keeps the action flowing smoothly for an experience that is as real as racing gets without a trip to the track.

Immerse yourself in the action
The ultimate racing game experience unfolds when you lose yourself in the action. The mundane world of your home or office fades away and you are transported to the Grand Hotel hairpin at Monaco or the pits at Talladega. XR3501’s 2000R curved screen puts the roadway right on your desktop. The concave 35-inch screen wraps around your peripheral visual range, making it easier to feel the thrill of speeding through city streets or making the dirt fly in a backroad rally. But before you get too lost in your virtual race, remember there are others maneuvering for the checkered flag and winner’s circle, as well. The XR3501’s extra wide 21:9 aspect ratio gives you significantly more space to keep an eye on your instruments and fellow drivers.
Virtual racing has never felt as real as it does with the XR3501. The monitor’s 2000R curvature is the most of any LCD monitor on the market, and that adds up to a driving experience that is the closest thing on a desktop to getting behind the wheel of an actual race car. Coupled with the monitor’s 144Hz refresh rate, you will swear you are in the heart of the action as scenery wraps around you with breathless fluidity.

See every detail
Lighting fast reactions don’t count for much if you can’t see the next turn. The XR3501 solves this with crystal clear 2560x1080 screen resolution and vibrant colors that will have you seeing every detail, from the decals on your opponents’ cars to the roadside grass and leaves on the trees you speed by. 
The XR3501’s Color Vibrance feature allows you to easily adjust color and detail settings based on your personal preferences. Lighting changes can hide critical details. Do the other cars seem to vanish in the darkness of a tunnel? Throw some light on the problem with Black eQualizer, boosting the brightness of darker regions of the screen without blowing out the well-lit areas. Now you can see every detail without sacrificing image quality.

Feel the speed
Nothing can pull a racing gamer out of a fully immersive experience faster than jerky, stuttering visuals and animations. The XR3501 keeps the action fast and smooth with the help of its 144Hz refresh rate. The higher refresh rate eliminates blurring while lending a more natural look to everything from other vehicles to passing scenery.
The XR3501 curved LCD gaming monitor is expected to retail in the second quarter of 2015. Slip on your driving gloves and prepare for real racing as you have never experienced it before.

BenQ, an internationally renowned provider of digital lifestyle innovations and LED monitor expert, proudly announced its all-new Interactive Flat Panel (IFP) lineup.

It has always been the company’s aspiration to create an ideal platform for simple and fun classroom interactivity and collaboration and achieve new benchmarks in its product offering for total interactive classroom solutions. Now, with its latest IFP additions, the RP700+, RP651+, RP650+ and RP551+, to complete its Interactive Flat Panel product lineup, BenQ brings interactive innovation to a new level of ease with outstanding image quality, intuitive touch solutions, innovative Eye-Care features and superior reliability that meet the diverse demands of school administrators, educators and learners.

Eye-Care Because BenQ Cares Eye-Care has been one of BenQ’s key product feature focuses for the past years. Most of BenQ’s display products are equipped with Flicker-free technology by model (RP551+ and RP651+) and Low Blue Light Modes to help reduce harmful blue light emission by up to 70%. BenQ has also incorporated anti-glare treatment to the glass surface of the IFP panels to reduce reflection and enhance viewing clarity in the classroom. In turn, more legible text and clearer images help further prevent eyestrain and facilitate effective instruction. Besides Low Blue Light technology and anti-glare panels, light-sensors are also installed in the IFP panels to enable automatic brightness adjustment, ensuring the best viewing experience throughout the day, regardless of the light levels in the classroom. This feature also safeguards the eye health of students and teachers. Not to mention, by preventing excessive brightness the IFP panels can reduce power consumption by up to 50%.

User-Friendly for Even First-Time Users User-friendliness is what makes a big difference for teachers trying to begin teaching and maintain a good flow in class. This is why BenQ keeps everything as simple as plug and play, doing away with the hassles of complex setup such as downloading and installing touch drivers. With BenQ’s IFP panels, all the teacher has to do is connect them to their PC using a USB cable to begin their touch-enhanced lesson plan. There is also a pen tray built onto the IFP panels to provide a handy place for storing IFP stylus and tools. A quicker and easier set-up combined with time-saving thoughtful features does big wonder for an interruption-free class. Multiple Display Administrator APP (MDA) for Better Projector Management and Maintenance Designed to help projector managers better manage all the projectors in the school, the MDA APP enables centralized control and easy management for setting up scheduling systems, email notifications for problematic projector operations, device monitoring and automatic shutdowns. Effective use of this handy tool will help save schools a significant amount of power costs.
