Press Release

Find your perfect position: BenQ launches two new widescreen LCD Monitors that pivot, rotate, tilt, and rise above the competition.


Hemel Hempstead, UK, August 20, 2008 – BenQ has increased its widescreen range to include the new 22 and 24-inch displays, the G2200WT and G2400WT. The new WT range provides users with a display that is adjustable in height, with 130mm movement; almost double that of regular competitive models. If that’s not ergonomic enough then a back & forth tilt, 90 degree pivot, and side to side swivel are easily adjusted to give users their personalised optimum viewing position.  .

Both are ideal for business users who often spend long periods in front of a screen. Both widescreens will be housed in a sleek and stylish silver and black casing. The G2200WT and G2400WT models come with DCR (dynamic contrast ratio), a 5 ms response time, a viewing angle of 160° vertical and 160° horizontal, Senseye® +Photo Technology and Windows® Vista™ Premium logo[1] .

The G2200WT display arrives with a DCR of 2,500:1, 1,680 x 1,050 resolution (WSXGA+) and 300 cd/m² brightness. Additionally, the new model is equipped with dual inputs – D-sub connectivity and DVI-D supporting HDCP for uncompromised HD video. The G2400WT features a DCR of 4,000:1, 1,920 x 1,200 resolution (WUXGA), 250 cd/m² brightness and a headphone jack. Furthermore, this widescreen model has DVI (with HDCP) and D-sub ports, as well as an HDMI™ interface.

The EU Directive lays down general prevention principles at workplaces including the installation of TFT monitors. Generally, G-Series monitors are engineered with user comfort and environmental responsibility in mind. For example, to guarantee an ergonomic computer workstation both widescreen displays G2200WT/G2400WT provide users with, among other things, a flexible screen adjustment to arrange the screen viewing individually, including pivot and height adjustment. TCO03 compliance guarantees that G-monitors meet the strictest standards for ergonomics, ecology, emissions and energy. An ENERGYSTAR rating further ensures reduced power consumption in all modes – on, standby and off. 

Productivity in the office is increased via the large wide-format display sizes. For Word documents, users can easily view two pages side by side at 100%, while for applications such as Excel and desktop publishing, more data and graphics can be displayed at one time. Large-screen viewing also enables easier navigation through multiple open applications.

Advanced BenQ Senseye®+Photo technology guarantees that the colour and image quality of the new model is even more brilliant. Using the standardised sRGB colour space, Senseye®+Photo technology ensures colour-accurate image reproduction over sRGB-compatible peripheral equipment, including printers and digital cameras.

The BenQ G2200WT and G2400WT will be available in August at a recommended retail price of G2200WT £180 inc VAT, and G2400WT £318 inc VAT.
