BenQ Gaming Monitors to ‘RevolutionEyes’ PAX East 2014
Company to Unveil Latest Professional Gaming Displays and Sponsor Two Freeplay Areas, Contests, and More
COSTA MESA, Calif. — April 8, 2014 — BenQ America Corp., a globally renowned LED and gaming monitor expert, today announced its participation at PAX East 2014. The gaming event, which is sold out, is being held at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC) from April 11 to 13. The annual convention attracts more than 60,000 attendees and brings together vendors, pros, developers, and enthusiasts from all over the world to experience the latest in video game technology. BenQ will sponsor two major gaming areas, as well as display a host of its highly acclaimed gaming monitors, featuring RevolutionEyes™ technology, at booth #1141.
“We look forward to unveiling our latest gaming monitors at one of the country’s largest video game events,” said Bob Wudeck, Associate Vice President, Strategy and Business Development at BenQ America Corp. “PAX East 2014 marks the debut of our newest RevolutionEyes professional gaming monitors, which have been designed to help gamers ConQuer the game with advanced features engineered exclusively to enhance game play.”
Now available on all new monitors, BenQ’s RevolutionEyes technology brings exceptional monitor performance and enhanced visual comfort across the entire gaming line. Led by BenQ’s market-leading ZeroFlicker™ innovation, the monitors eliminate backlight flickering at all brightness levels to reduce eye strain and allow gamers to spend longer periods engaged in fast-action play. Featuring “Low Blue Light” technology, BenQ monitors remove up to 70 percent of blue spectrum light to protect gamers’ eyes during extended periods of play without affecting picture quality. All BenQ gaming monitors feature BenQ’s Black eQualizer, which enables total gaming visibility by allowing players to adjust brightness without over-exposing white levels, revealing critical combat details with improved visibility in darkened areas.
On display at the BenQ booth will be the new RL2460HT 24-inch LED backlit gaming monitor for high-speed PC and console gaming, which is perfect for RTS- and MOBA-style games, as well as fighting games. Co-developed with fighting game legend Justin “JWong” Wong of Evil Geniuses, the monitor’s new Fighting Mode enables gamers to highlight battle characters with special colors — improving focus and precision during high-stakes combat scenes. The RL2460HT features a built-in HDMI output to provide uncompromised streaming for head-to-head multiplayer gaming on a single screen. BenQ is also unleashing its stylish “bumblebee” black-and-yellow RL2240HE monitor. Specifically suited to RTS game play, the bold-looking 21.5-inch LED backlit display has been fine-tuned to provide the vital visibility and commands needed during strategy-led strikes. The fast-action RL series monitors provide blazing-fast 1ms GTG response times, height-adjustment stands, and other great features for optimized gaming.
Also on display, the new XL2720Z FPS 27-inch LED backlit gaming monitor offers gamers the freedom to custom-build their own personal gaming experiences. Equipped with gaming refresh rate optimization management (GROM), the monitor allows for refresh rate (100/120/144Hz), display resolution, and screen size customization. For even more control without compromising speed, gamers can customize and save display setting presets directly onto the monitor’s S Switch. This allows players to switch swiftly between customized settings using the stylish controller’s scroll button. For even greater convenience, the XL2720Z is height-adjustable and sports a carrying handle to transport the monitor to any LAN party or gaming competition.
BenQ continues to support the gaming community at PAX East 2014, where the company is sponsoring two freeplay areas — the PC and bring your own computer (BYOC) zones. The large PC freeplay area is designed to allow attendees to experience a wide array of the latest games on top-of-the-line gaming PCs, while the BYOC room is for those who bring their own machines to participate in large-scale LAN play on popular game titles.
At BenQ’s booth on April 11 and 12, professional gamer Pobelter, a member of pro-gaming team Evil Geniuses, will be on hand to sign autographs, pose for photos, and speak with attendees. The company will also host the second part of its social media contest, announcing the winner of dinner for two with the Evil Geniuses’ League of Legends team on April 12.
