BenQ PD3220U overview

  • 1Description

The PD3220U DesignVue Designer 31.5" 16:9 IPS Monitor from BenQ has been built to satisfy designers' needs for color performance, with support for 100% of the sRGB and Rec. 709 color gamuts, 95% of the DCI-P3 color gamuts, and as HDR10. Driven by BenQ's AQCOLOR technology and an Ultra HD 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 with a 60 Hz refresh rate, the PD3220U helps deliver improved accuracy and productivity tailored for specific tastes. It does this using three special modes - CAD/CAM, Animation, and Darkroom - each of which is tailored for different scenarios, allowing users in different fields to achieve similar results.

The PD3220U features In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology, an anti-glare panel coating, 10-bit support for 1.07 billion colors, a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio, a static contrast ratio of 1300:1, a dynamic contrast ratio of 20M:1, a 350 cd/m2 brightness rating, 140 ppi, and a 5 ms (GtG) response time.

One Thunderbolt 3 port supports devices charging up to 85W, while the other supports it up to 15W. Additional connectivity is achieved using one USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C port, two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, and one USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-B port. Audio can be output using the dual integrated 2W speakers or the 3.5mm headphone jack.

BenQ's PD3220U also supports HDCP 2.2, Flicker-Free technology, Low Blue Light technology, and more. To further help improve viewing and accessibility, it features a vertical tilt of -5 to 20°, a left/right swivel of ±30°, a clockwise/counterclockwise pivot of 90°, and a height adjustment of 5.91".

General Features

Improved Accuracy and Productivity Tailored for the Sophisticated Tastes
Created with such demand in mind, BenQ's PD3220U comes with an aesthetic look that prioritizes flexibility and designers' love for sophistication. To satisfy designers' needs for accurate color performance while enhancing their overall productivity, the PD3220U comes with an upgraded color gamut that's compatible with sRGB, Rec. 709, DCI-P3 and Display P3, while offering Thunderbolt 3 connectivity for a more efficient image and data transmission experience.
Concepts Reflected Through the Color Performance
Designers rely on professional display monitors to take a sharp look at colors, the most basic element of every product, and BenQ helps guarantee that colors are accurate.
AQCOLOR Technology
Devoted to meet professional color standards, BenQ has developed AQCOLOR technology to uphold the concept of "accurate reproduction." BenQ has invited a color expert to lead the team, and also joined ICC (International Color Consortium) and ISO (International Standard Organization) to establish color-related standards and implementation.
Color Reproduction Through the Upgraded Color Gamut
The PD3220U is equipped with the color standards, including Display P3 and DCI-P3, to help guarantee a consistent color application among designers. As more apps, devices, and websites adopt the color space of DCI-P3, the PD3220U also comes fully compatibility with this color standard, allowing design professionals to load and display images imported from different sources. Additionally, the monitor covers 95% of DCI-P3, as well as 100% of sRGB and Rec. 709 color spaces, utilizing IPS wide viewing angle technology to help minimize color shifts to inspire design confidence.
Color Calibration for High Color Accuracy
BenQ's PD3220U monitor offers out-of-the-box color accuracy that lets users enjoy trustworthy color performance.
ICCsync
ICCsync helps designers complete the steps of matching ICC profiles between monitors and computers. Controllable through Display Pilot software or the monitor itself, ICCsync allows designers to customize the color mapping process, and facilitates an instant color mode adjustment that emphasizes productivity.
HDR10 Support
BenQ's DesignVue PD3220U is equipped with HDR10 technology to let designers preview video HDR effects during the editing process, helping to ensure desirable outcomes for their final works.
Specialized Display Modes Tailored to All Designers
One interesting aspect of the design industry is the depth and varieties it possesses. In order to fully showcase the dynamic nature of the field, designers require tools that can help bring out the highest potential of their works. BenQ's PD3220U monitor possesses several suitable display modes to assist designers produce high-quality works.
Darkroom Mode
Adjusting image brightness and contrast for enhanced clarity and sharp details, Darkroom Mode creates a good setting for work in darkened post-processing environments.
Animation Mode
Often problematic for designers working with intricate details in dark images, Animation Mode enhances the brightness of dark areas without overexposing bright regions. Animation mode provides 10 levels of display brightness to bring out subtleties clearly in ambient lighting.
CAD/CAM Mode
Offering enhanced contrast for lines and shapes in technical illustrations, CAD/CAM Mode accentuates fine details to produce improved display performances in Pro/E, SOLIDWORKS, AutoCAD, CATIA, and other design software.
A Simple and Efficient Creative Process Made Possible
The common scene in a design studio is a workstation littered by multiple cords, used papers, and all kinds of tools, making it impossible for most designers to remain productive while searching for inspiration. But it doesn't have to be like this. With a cable and several other thoughtful features, designers can now enjoy an upgraded level of efficiency and productivity while trying to turn their creative ideas into realities.
Thunderbolt 3
The PD3220U is integrated with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity through two USB Type-C ports, allowing designers to daisy-chain up to two 4K monitors and enjoy a higher speed for data transmission. By facilitating daisy-chaining through Thunderbolt 3, the PD3220U lets designers extend screens while ensuring that the video, audio, and data of the content are all properly extended, further enhancing the efficiency at work.
DualView
Improve your workflow and enhance productivity by switching on DualView to showcase designs in two modes (e.g. sRGB and CAD/CAM) side-by-side without the need for two screens.
Keyboard Video Mouse (KVM) Switch
The KVM Switch function allows users to control one keyboard and mouse between two different computers that use one or two screens, ensuring users can seamlessly switch between different computers to execute complicated design tasks while further boosting efficiencies at work. Designers can also enjoy the added level of efficiency that comes with KVM by activating the feature through PD3220U's embedded software, Display Pilot. With a few simple steps in Display Pilot, designers can benefit from the elevated level of convenience that the PD3220U offers.
Hotkey Puck G2
PD3220U is empowered by the hotkey puck G2, which allows designers to customize shortcuts to their preferred features through the upgraded OSD. The hotkey puck G2 leaves three single function keys, as well as a rotation key, to let users designate them to features that they require the most at work. Additionally, designers can adjust the brightness, contrast, and volume of the monitor based on their preferences through the dial on the hotkey puck. To return to the previous level of the settings, designers can simply press the return key to instantly go back to the previous level.
Caring for Your Eyes
Eyes play a key role in our everyday lives, and for designers, their eyes are the gateway between their creative ideas and final products. To enhance the level of viewing comfort for designers, BenQ's PD3220U monitor relies on a few technologies to safeguard designers' visions.
Low Blue Light Technology
BenQ Low Blue Light Technology is designed to filter out harmful blue light, effectively diminishing eye fatigue and irritation.
Flicker-Free
Flicker-free eliminates flickering at all brightness levels and reduces eye fatigue effectively. Conventional LCD screens flicker at the rate of 250 times per second. Your eyes may not see the flickers, but they can certainly feel them. So relieve your eyes from the uncomfortable flickering effect by switching to a BenQ flicker-free monitor.
