BenQ, internationally renowned provider of digital lifestyle devices, today launched its brand-new EX2780Q gaming monitor.  The 27” IPS QHD gaming monitor is equipped with exclusive HDRi technology, an intelligent visual optimization, tailored 2.1 channel Hi-Fi audio and eye-care technology for the most immersive in-game experience.

A New Vision of Intelligent Immersion with HDRi
Introducing BenQ’s proprietary HDRi technology, a blend of proprietary Brightness Intelligence Plus (B.I.+) technology with HDR. HDRi combines active intelligent brightness control, colour saturation/balance optimization and proprietary HDR image techniques to accentuate image contrast and clarity revealing hidden details in every dark corner, as well as balancing bright areas to avoid overexposure and washout. With three pre-set modes, including Game HDRi, Cinema HDRi, and Display HDR, your visual enjoyment can be customized according to personal preference under various scenarios.

Best-in-Class True Sound Audio by treVolo
Equally innovative, the built-in 2.1 channel speaker system is designed by BenQ’s acclaimed treVolo audio team to maximize expansive sound in an unobtrusively integrated package. Although monitors traditionally are not renowned for speaker quality, BenQ True Sound by treVolo creates a listening experience far surpassing external speakers by utilizing advanced physical acoustics and psychoacoustics, without desktop clutter. Five tailored sound modes, including Game, Cinema, Pop/Live, Dialog/Vocal, and Rock/Party are offered from the well-defined bass to the high-end sounds so as to intensify your immersion.

Level up Your Gaming Experience
Clear images, smooth gameplay and less motion blur are the key elements for choosing a gaming monitor. The EX2780Q features FreeSync and 144Hz refresh for smooth gameplay eliminating image tearing and broken frames.  The monitor is also equipped with Black eQualizer™, lightening darker areas of the image for clarity of details and Color Vibrance offering the ability to precisely adjust the colour intensity and adapt the image to the specific needs of different type of gameplay.

Engineered to deliver the most immersive personal entertainment platform, the EX2780Q gaming monitor also comes with an intuitive remote control, one-touch five-function navigator control on the display and a convenient volume wheel.
