BenQ Unveils World's First 18.5-inch LED Monitor
Displays | Just Announced
Fri 09 Oct 2009




Manila, Philippines -- Global provider of digital lifestyle devices, BenQ, continues to forge ahead in the LED display revolution with the introduction of the 18.5-inch LED monitor G922HDL (16:9), which is the world’s first LED display in the 18.5-inch W segment. Compelling price point, solid performance, economical screen size, and boasting the lowest power consumption rating in its size categories, the new models appeal to cost- and eco-conscious corporate users who appreciate the BenQ G922HDL’s mercury-free, energy-efficient engineering.

The BenQ G922HDL contributes to what will be a comprehensive LED lineup to be launched now through 1Q 2010.

G Series Keeps Work Lookin’ Great

By employing LED backlighting, the BenQ G922HDL offers brilliant visuals that enhance productivity and eye comfort in the workplace. Most notably, the BenQ G922HDL exhibits zero light leakage, enabling an ultra-high dynamic contrast ratio (DCR) of 5 million:1. Such a near-infinite DCR translates to super-intense blacks, brilliant whites, and innumerable color variations in between so that all content – from fine text, graphs, chart, and tables to fast-action games and dark video scenery – are rendered in razor-sharp definition. Visual excellence is further enhanced by BenQ’s patented Senseye™ 3 Human Vision Technology, which offers one-touch optimization of image richness, clarity, and depth using preset modes calibrated to specific applications: Standard (office and Internet), Movie (DVD and TV), Game, Photo, sRGB (for 100% color consistency across all sRGB devices), and Eco (for power-savings).

"LED is the next big thing in display technology, enabling never-before-possible levels in DCR for amazing visuals,” said Peter Chen, General Manager of BenQ Technology Product Center. “Plus, there are the undeniable ecological benefits that are even more relevant. Overall, the BenQ G922HDL makes leading-edge LED advancement mainstream affordable so that everyone can experience and contribute to a future that’s Lookin’ Great both in digital lifestyle and in the natural environment.”

Eco- and Office-Friendly

Perfect for today’s progressive corporations seeking energy-efficiency and optimal TCO (total cost of ownership), the BenQ G922HDL gives dual meaning to “Eco-friendly” by being both an ecologically responsible and an economically practical product.

The panels are 100% mercury-free, which is a significant ecological advantage over traditional CCFL displays, and a noteworthy consideration for corporate users seeking to proactively comply with changing environmental regulations. LED technology also enables the BenQ G922HDL to use substantially less energy (approximately 43% ) than CCFL displays of the same screen size. In fact, at 11W (the BenQ G922HDL) in Eco mode, BenQ G922HDL leads the industry with the lowest power demands in their respective size categories – a big ecological and economical plus for businesses seeking to lower costs.

Additionally, the BenQ G922HDL increases office productivity by enabling simultaneous viewing of multiple applications on the large widescreen format : a 16:9 aspect ratio on the G922HDL (1366x768 WXGA resolution) is perfect for undistorted viewing of HDTV and HD movies. And because LED is a stable light source, the BenQ G922HDL provides flicker-free performance ideal for long-term viewing (such as at the office) and improved visual comfort.

The BenQ G922HDL display is certified TCO 5.0, RoHS, EnergySTAR 4.1, EuP, and will be certified advanced EnergySTAR 5.0 in Nov ’09; and have received the China Energy Label Level 1 recognition.
