Unleash your creativity with the DesignVue PD2705U 27" 4K HDR Monitor from BenQ. Built with creative users in mind, this display provides you with robust functionality and ample connectivity options essential for drafting artwork or editing photos and video.
Professional Graphics
Sporting a 27" In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel, this display gives you resolution up to 3840 x 2160 and horizontal and vertical viewing angles up to 178°, making this ideal for digital artists working on detailed projects. With support for 1.07 billion colors, a 1200:1 contrast ratio, and a 350 nit peak brightness, you can ensure your media looks clear, essential when creating vivid imagery. A 60 Hz refresh rate is accompanied by 5 ms gray-to-gray response time to provide a smooth and fluid experience when watching and editing media. AMD FreeSync technology reduces screen tearing and stuttering from fast-moving video with compatible graphics cards.
Vivid Colorization
With HDR10 compatibility and VESA HDR400 certification, you can ensure your artwork stands out with vivid colorization. Developed with International Color Consortium (ICC) and International Organization of Standardization (ISO), BenQ's AQCOLOR technology produces color-accurate reproduction suitable for a wide range of artwork, photo editing, and more. You get enhanced color gamut coverage with 99% sRGB and Rec.709 with Delta ≤3 accuracy. Additionally, each DesignVue PD2705U comes individually pre-calibrated with a certification report for trustworthy performance. Each monitor has earned the Calman and Pantone Validated statuses.
Efficiently Designed
Whether you are designing or completing daily tasks, the PD2705U sports several features designed to streamline your workload. Picture-In-Picture (PIP) and Picture-By-Picture (PBP) modes allow you to pull up multiple images from multiple devices with interlaced images or dividing the screen for dedicated image sections, respectively. A built-in KVM switch allows you to connect and control two different systems with a single keyboard and mouse.

One Key Shortcuts allow you to easily access color settings and more with standard key presses or use the included Hotkey Puck G2 controller for another layer of convenience. Display Pilot allows you to integrate additional designer-friendly features.

Integrated view presets allow you to use specialized modes such as CAD/CAM, Animation, Darkroom, and DualView to adjust display settings automatically to match your workload.

The DesignVue PD2705U features one HDMI and one DisplayPort input, allowing you to connect multiple devices simultaneously and switch between them seamlessly. Additionally, a single USB-C input allows you to connect devices that support DP Alt Mode while supplying 65W power delivery so you can conveniently charge your device while expanding your screen real estate.

Ergonomics
Use the adjustable stand to rotate the screen 90° for portrait viewing in addition to configuring its height, swivel, and tilt. Or use the 100 x 100mm VESA mounting pattern to place the display onto a wall, swivel arm, or multi-monitor stand. Integrated Eye-Care technology offers settings that filter out blue light so you can work on your projects for longer without experiencing eyestrain and fatigue.
