BenQ launches real-time gaming monitor
Dubai, October 10, 2011
BenQ, a leader in digital lifestyle innovations, has launched the world’s first real-time strategy (RTS) gaming monitor at the ongoing Gitex Shopper in Dubai.
Gitex Shopper 2011, the leading consumer electronics retail platform, will run up to October 15 at Airport Expo Dubai.
“Following the tremendous success of the XL2410T in 2011, BenQ joined hands once again with Zowie Gear, the most professional manufacturer of competitive gaming gears, along with Startale, a world-class StarCraft 2 professional gaming team sponsored by BenQ since 2011, for the development of the all new RL Series,” said Manish Bakshi, general manager of BenQ for the Middle East and Africa.
“This ingenious collaboration brought together fundamental gaming insights with BenQ’s R&D expertise and delivered cutting-edge features that offer top-level gamers an unprecedented level of control, accuracy and enjoyment,” he added.
Built to set an exceedingly high benchmark for RTS gaming displays, the RL2240H certainly proves that “gaming is in the details.”
Every feature and function of this monitor was meticulously thought out to fulfill a specific gaming purpose – ultimately to provide RTS gamers with vital visibility and command to achieve peak performance.
The collaboration with the Startale players offered BenQ insider perspectives on details that were essential to winning the game, particularly the ability to acquire, assess and respond to information quickly.
BenQ answered this demand with the Black eQualizer, an exclusively designed color engine technology that reveals critical combat details with improved visibility in darkened areas.
The Black eQualizer allows gamers to adjust the screen brightness without over-exposing white levels, enabling them to screen critical combat details speedily with added gameplay comfort. BenQ also worked with the Startale players to develop the RTS Mode, a preset mode with tailored monitor calibrations for RTS gaming.
To offer even more convenience and ease to gamers, the RTS Mode is set as the out-of-box setting.
“It was a humbling experience to watch the XL2410T turn into a grand success last winter. It appeared to be one of the most preferred monitors in DreamHack Summer 2011, Global Starcraft II League and GamesCon 2011. The enthusiastic responses it generated in the international gaming community were phenomenal,” said Peter Chen, EVP and general manager of BenQ Technology Product Center.
“Unquestionably, this deepened our belief that the key to winning, whether it’s for gaming or for creating outstanding monitors, is in the details. With the launch of the RL2240H, we hope to optimize the gaming experience for RTS gamers around the world,” he concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
