X-Rite, which mainly makes colour measurement devices has announced a long-term strategic technology partnership with BenQ, which mainly makes monitors. The deal will enable users to gain direct access to BenQ display hardware without the intermediary intervention of the computer’s graphics card when using an X-Rite i1Display Pro display calibrator and Palette Master.
It’s particularly aimed at digital photographers. According to Jan Keller, VP OEM Sales of X-Rite, this solution should mean “that the monitor accurately displays the tones and hues that fall within the Adobe RGB color space captured by their camera in the raw file so users can apply appropriate edits to match their printer’s color gamut.”
It was demonstrated with the BenQ PG2401PT monitor at last week’s Photokina show in Cologne.
