Embedded with BenQ’s exclusive AQColour Advantage, ICC/ISO professional standards are met to deliver detailed precision and assure out-of-the-box Delta E ≤ 3 colour accuracy. Achieving 100% of industry standard sRGB and Rec.709 wide colour gamuts, the factory-calibrated displays also arrive with a unique calibration report for guaranteed quality for designers relying on exact colour match.

In addition, the PD3420Q is HDR-10 compatible, having achieved the prestigious status of VESA DisplayHDR 400. Allowing videographers to preview HDR video content during editing sessions for realistic results in an instant.
