Australia, December 2010: A global leader in LED monitor visual display, BenQ were the first to market globally with VA or Vertically Aligned panels and can now boast an unrivalled range of premium VA-LED monitors appealing to corporate, multimedia and home use.
Designed for corporate use, the BL2400PT incorporates ergonomics and ecological benefits, as well as providing a cost effective solution for business. BL2400PT features a 24″ premium VA panel providing a 178?/178? ultra-wide viewing angle and anti-glare screen offering truly authentic colour – deeper blacks and extreme contrast and clarity – with the convenience of an ultra-flexible Height Adjustment Stand (HAS) to tailor height, tilt, pivot, stroke and swivel to perfectly suit the user.
BL2400PT is part of a series of new monitors but it – the 24″is the only one to feature the VA panel. Other monitors in the series include the 19″ BL902TM and the 22″ BL2201PT, all boasting Full HD 1080p resolution in 16:9 format with the ingenious inclusion of the BenQ ‘Automatic Eye-Protect Sensor’ which continuously measures and adjusts brightness for maximum eye comfort. Ergonomically speaking, this equates to prolonged viewing periods and reduced eye strain / fatigue for greater productivity in the office.
“Improving worker satisfaction and performance improves the corporate bottom line,” said General Manager for BenQ Australia, Chee F. Chung. “Business stands to profit from BenQ’s ‘4E’ principle – the BL series promoting Ergomonics and Eco-friendliness, while being Ecomonically viable and Enjoyable to use,” she said.
Being LED backlit, the BL monitors utilise up to 33% less energy when compared to traditional LCD displays (even more if used in BenQ’s Eco-mode) representing significant energy savings. Second to this, LED panel manufacture is mercury-free, lowering CO2 emissions and following responsible e-waste guidelines.
Business and the planet also stand to benefit from the BL Series smart ‘eco sensor’. Employees are estimated to spend approximately 20% of their working day away from their computers. BenQ’s ‘eco-sensor’ switches the display to eco-mode automatically, then instantly switches back to normal mode once the user returns to their desk.

What is VA-LED?
VA-LED-based panels present superior colour reproduction, an ultra high contrast ratio displaying blacks more accurately because of its capability to produce true black with zero bright dot (ZBD) minimising light leakage. Essentially – this means better contrast and detail in dark scenes. Also, the monitor can be shared with more people due to VA panels having a wider viewing angle.
