BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned provider of stylish home and office monitors, today announced the latest advance from its award-winning VW white monitor series: the VW2235H 22-inch display. Now featuring ZeroFlicker™ technology, the monitor is engineered to eliminate traditional LED flicker issues — providing today's creative and eco-friendly users with increased visual comfort during extended periods of use. The screen features full MacBook® compatibility, VA panel technology, and BenQ Senseye® Human Vision technology to make the pure white device the ultimate combination of forward-thinking performance and avant-garde design.

With its asymmetrical build and minimalist appearance, the VW2235H makes a bold statement within a world of standard-looking screens. With no printing, coating, or adhesives on the surface, the monitor provides an uncomplicated look made to complement any of today's classrooms, medical labs, graphic design and architectural studios, corporate environments, or home office settings. In addition to its design, the VW2235H now features ZeroFlicker technology. Designed to eliminate the rapid flicker rate — or flashing effect — from backlight controllers, the new technology uses an innovative lighting system to provide a softer screen experience. As a result, users experience better visual performance and can take part in longer viewing sessions without compromising comfort.

Lee Neikirk, Staff Writer for Reviewed.com, commented: "This elegantly designed monitor from BenQ is pretty to look at, and boasts great contrast to boot…It's a handsome display—more than a few co-workers felt the need to stop and take a closer look at it…I was especially impressed by this monitor's contrast ratio. Usually, general-use monitors like this one test with mediocre black levels, as they simply need to be bright enough to combat basic lighting. The VW2235H is plenty bright, but also offers users the added bonus of a deep black level, which is going to make film content and video games look that much better."

Using BenQ's exclusive Senseye Human Vision technology, the VW2235H enables users to connect to any MacBook using the monitor's M-book mode. The result is the recreation of authentic MacBook picture quality on the larger, wide aspect ratio display. Other preset Senseye calibration settings include BenQ's "Reading Mode," which automatically adjusts the monitor to simulate the warmth of reading paper, and an improved "Eco Mode," which balances performance with energy efficiency to reduce power consumption by up to 44 percent.

To ensure optimal picture quality, the VW2235H uses True-Black Color to provide deeper black tones and minimized light leakage, ensuring flawless layering and precisely contrasted details. For even sharper images, the monitor's ultra-high native contrast ratio of 3000:1 — three times higher than traditional displays — adds astonishing color depth to bring new levels of crispness and clarity to content. The 8-bit VA panel also provides smoother and more stable color transitions by rendering an amazing 16.7 million simultaneous color shades while giving users full 178°/178° wide viewing angles to make the VW2235H an impressive provider of lifelike color performance.

For space-savings and ergonomic efficiency, a device holder at the base of the monitor offers a practical solution for iPhones®, iPods®, and other close-at-hand devices. To turn the VW2235H into a full entertainment hub, the device features the latest HDMI® high-speed multimedia interface and D-sub/DVI connection to enable easy linkage to gaming consoles, Blu-ray™ players, and additional computers. Both Windows® 8 and Mac compatible, BenQ's all-white VW2235H monitor features a mercury-free LED display, BFR/PVC-free casing plastics, and eco-friendly ink on its packaging to keep workspaces free from harmful chemicals.

"Our new VW2235H monitor is the market's first ZeroFlicker display specifically created for today's design-conscious settings and eco-friendly lifestyles," said Bob Wudeck, Associate Vice President, Strategy and Business Development at BenQ America Corp. "Building on the success of our award-winning all-white VW series, the newest version of our Mac-compatible monitors enables users to experience a heightened sense of comfort for longer viewing sessions while enjoying the same performance features that made the original version such a success. Essentially, we've taken the market's smartest choice for eye-pleasing performance and design and made it even smarter." Just in time for the holiday season, the VW2235H is available now and retails at a price of $179. More information on the full line of BenQ products is available at www.BenQ.us.
