The latest BenQ monitor is SolidWorks certified and boasts a UHD display

Designed to meet the rising demands for large-sized viewing and ultra-high definition, BenQ’s latest BL3201PT monitor boasts a 32” 4K2K display built with its IPS technology for precise color rendition and over 300 per cent working space.

With a CAD/CAM Mode for ‘clearly distinguished details in complicated object wireframes’, the CAD/CAM mode alters the monitor’s color and contrast settings to view highly detailed graphic information, with the 3840 x 2160 4K2K model coming with SolidWorks Certification.

Its dual-aspect ratio is designed for professional designers accustomed to working with a square monitor, with the feature allowing the user to work with nearly two 19” displays by dividing a 32” BL Series monitor screen in half, or two 4:3 or 5:4 viewing areas – which can be further resized from 19”S to 30”W in size using the Display Mode feature.

For enhanced convenience and productivity, a Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture feature allows you to compare two or more pictures as well as display drawings from two PCs simultaneously for a more efficient work discussion.

Previously, lower spec monitors have suffered from ‘ghosting’, although with this in mind, BenQ has stated that it is not focussed on monitor response time, stating that: “Some designers may need high refresh rate like 120hz, but most of them don’t need it. Our BL models are using IPS or VA panel with 4ms(G2G) and 60hz.”

Instead, BenQ is phasing-in AMD Freesync technology into new models, with the BL2711U, launching in April, looking to resolve previous tearing/stuttering issues with dynamic refresh rate technology offered by Freesync that can help with CAD or animation design.
