99% Adobe RGB Colour Gamut and Technicolor® Color Certification.
The SW320 and SW271 deliver an ultra-wide colour gamut to reach 99% of Adobe RGB, a significantly larger colour space than sRGB and Rec. 709. It also supports DCI-P3, as well as 100% of sRGB and Rec. 709, which are both certified by Technicolor to meet strict standards of colour accuracy, used not only in Hollywood but throughout the media and entertainment industries, with consistent, precise colour exactly as content originators intended.
High Dynamic Range (HDR) content support.
Increasing the dynamic range between black and white for naturally realistic images, SW320 & SW271 support HDR signals through both its HDMI and DisplayPort inputs.
True 10-Bit Colour Depth, 14-Bit 3D LUT, ΔE ≤ 2.
The monitors produce over a billion colours for ultra-smooth gradations. The 14-bit colour lookup table guarantees absolute colour accuracy as defined by the Commission Internationale de l’Eclairge’s (CIE) Delta E deviation of less than 2, which designates the finest colour fidelity, exceeding the limits of human vision.
Palette Master Element Colour Calibration.
SW320 & SW271 can be hardware calibrated with colourimeter and Palette Master Element calibration software for professional work.
Brightness Uniformity Function.
For an authentic and consistent viewing experience, the SW320 & SW271 achieves immaculate brightness uniformity across the entire screen via a meticulous fine-tuning process of hundreds of sub-regions with high-precision apparatus.
GamutDuo and Advanced Black and White Modes.
GamutDuo Mode allows simultaneous side-by-side display of content in two different colour spaces, such as Adobe RGB and sRGB. Photos taken can also be viewed in a black and white film effect, with three presets for photo previews prior to post-processing adjustments.
Hotkey Puck and Pro Shading Hood.
The unique “Hotkey Puck” remote control enables instant switching between colour modes and image settings, and the included detachable shading hood works in both portrait and landscape orientations to block ambient light and glare for superb colour accuracy.
Finished in a minimalist bezel and adjustable stand design engineered to reduce reflection, the SW320 & SW271 each provides comprehensive connectivity, including a media card reader, USB 3.0 ports, HDMI 2.0a, and DisplayPort / mini DisplayPort 1.4 supporting Mac Thunderbolt output.
