COSTA MESA, Calif. — Aug. 27, 2014 — BenQ America Corp., a globally renowned LED and gaming monitor expert, today announced that the company will showcase the latest addition to its highly acclaimed XL Series of RevolutionEyes™ professional gaming monitors at PAX Prime in Seattle. Shipping just in time for the competition, the new XL2430T debuts as BenQ’s next evolution in first-person shooter (FPS) purpose-built gaming monitors with new and enhanced features such as Motion Blur Reduction 2.0 and Black eQualizer 2.0 to boost gaming performance. In addition, the highly anticipated XL2420G will be on display featuring NVIDIA’s G-Sync technology to eliminate performance issues related to image tearing, stuttering, and latency — providing gamers with the ultimate in smooth, fast-action play to conQuer any gaming situation.
As a tournament gaming monitor sponsor, PAX Prime participants will battle it out using BenQ’s RL and XL Series of professional displays. The company will have the best and brightest of its gaming monitors on display and for sale at the event, with special at-show pricing for attendees. Along with raffles and giveaways taking place at BenQ’s booth in Annex level 3 in the PC area, the company will be engaging gamers and show goers via a number of social media contests. The now sold-out PAX Prime 2014 gaming event attracts more than 70,000 attendees and is being held at the Washington State Convention Center from Aug. 29 to Sept. 1. The annual convention brings together vendors, pros, developers, and enthusiasts from all over the world to experience the latest in video game technology.
“We connected with the gaming community at PAX East, and PAX Prime offers an even greater opportunity to engage with players and innovators that drive the industry,” said Bob Wudeck, Associate Vice President, Strategy and Business Development at BenQ America Corp. “PAX Prime is an ideal venue to debut our latest RevolutionEyes professional gaming monitors, which feature a slew of new gaming modes and long-awaited G-Sync technology. All of our gaming monitors are engineered exclusively to enhance game play, giving users the best possible experience at home or in competition.”
At PAX Prime, BenQ will unveil the new XL2430T 24-inch widescreen full HD display. Already a 2014 reddot award winner, the XL2430T combines BenQ’s world-renowned gaming-focused solutions in addition to new and improved enhancements. The XL2430T offers 100 percent precise control inside and out, featuring BenQ’s Motion Blur Reduction 2.0 technology to ensure an ultra-smooth, blur-free and lag-free gaming experience. With the newly improved Black eQualizer 2.0, the XL2430T is able to detect the input source and automatically adjust the amount of brightness in the game within the range selected by the user. As a result, players can identify targets effortlessly and react quickly to any in-game situation without taking time out for manual adjustments. Additionally, the XL2430T boasts new features on top of BenQ’s signature Game Mode Loader, Display Mode, and Smart Scaling. These include an Auto Game Mode that detects the genre of the game being played and either switches the display setting to the corresponding game mode automatically or makes new game mode recommendations for download. A new Game Mode to Go also allows gamers to save game modes onto a USB flash drive for easy and simple transport. Game modes can even be shared via cloud storage or social media platforms for group sharing, collaboration, and ultimate domination.
BenQ will also showcase the highly anticipated XL2420G G-Sync gaming monitor, which promises virtually lag-free gaming and releases later in the year. The 24-inch widescreen full HD display features expanded connectivity and the same award-winning G-Sync technology recognized by Reviewed.com with CES Editors’ Choice when the monitor was shown for the first time. While most monitors only have a single Display Port, the XL2420G offers dual HDMI®, DVI, as well as Display Port. In addition, the monitor’s new G-Sync Mode enables smooth, low-latency gaming that creates more lifelike on-screen action to augment the gaming experience. By synchronizing the display’s refresh rate to the graphic card’s GPU, G-Sync technology eliminates screen tearing for better graphic integrity, minimizes stutter for smoother gaming, and reduces input lag. The results are scenes that display instantly, sharper object resolutions, and smoother overall game play.
Featuring BenQ’s exclusive RevolutionEyes technology for exceptional monitor performance, both monitors house a new direct LED-backlight system with ZeroFlicker™ technology to eliminate flickering at all brightness levels, letting gamers protect their eyes during extended periods of use. With Motion Blur Reduction 2.0 the blurring effects and associated eye fatigue are dramatically reduced, while BenQ’s unique Low Blue Light modes enable the monitors to successfully manage the exposure of emitted blue spectrum light, resulting in more comfortable viewing. The displays’ gaming refresh rate optimization management (GROM) systems give gamers the freedom to custom-build their personal gaming experiences according to viewing preferences such as refresh rates (100/120/144Hz), resolutions, and screen sizes. With blazing-fast 1-ms GTG response times, the XL Series monitors offer the ultimate in fast-action play with striking visual clarity and seamless motion fluidity for hours of full-on gaming.
The XL2430T is now shipping at an MSRP of $449. The XL2420G releases in Q4 2014 at an MSRP of $649. For the full lineup of BenQ’s gaming monitors, visit gaming.benq.com. For more information about PAX Prime, visit http://prime.paxsite.com/.
