BenQ launches first monitor for designers

BenQ has entered the creative display market with the FP91R, the first in a series of LCD monitors aimed at designers, illustrators and other creative professionals.

The FP91R is a 19-inch monitor with a resolution of 1,280-x-1,024. BenQ says that it boats color stability across different brightness levels and strictly conforms to the SRGB color standard.

The monitor ships with a wired OSD controller with a built-in calibrator. Unlike conventional calibration systems, which use software profiles to modify the computer's output to match the display, this hardware calibrator changes the monitor's settings to match the conventional profile. This should provide a more finely-graded output.

The controller allows the user to choose from five gamma settings and 13 color temperature settings - and adjust the relative values of red, green, blue, cyan, magenta and yellow independently.

The FP91R will ship in October for around £755 (US$1,399) plus VAT.
