Display Manufacturer Inks Distribution Agreements With D&H Distributing, Ingram Micro, Tech Data, and Stampede

IRVINE, Calif. — June 9, 2011 — BenQ, the No. 1 DLP(R) Projector brand in the world, today announced it has partnered with four of the nation’s leading IT distributors to expand availability for its high-quality computer monitors in the U.S. Under the agreements, D&H Distributing, Ingram Micro, Tech Data, and Stampede will distribute and provide technical support for a wide range of LED backlight monitor models from the company’s G, BL, XL, V, and E series for business, gaming, entertainment, and home and home-office applications.

“We’re proud to partner with these four well-known and well-respected distributors to expand our U.S. distribution model and bring our monitors to a wider audience,” said Lars Yoder, president of BenQ America Corp. “Our LED backlight monitors have met with tremendous success in international markets, and we are ready to build on that momentum and expand our brand beyond projectors in the U.S. D&H Distributing, Ingram Micro, Tech Data, and Stampede will be instrumental in helping us achieve wider market penetration.”

D&H Distributing, Ingram Micro, Tech Data, and Stampede will carry nine monitor models from BenQ’s G, BL, XL, V, and E series, with new models to be available shortly. The monitors feature LED backlight technology for optimized color and brightness performance, while BenQ Senseye(R) Technology delivers only the best viewing quality in each of its six pre-set viewing modes – Standard, Movie, Game, Photo, sRGB, and Eco.

For work or play at home, the G series features 21.5-inch to 24-inch widescreen HD monitors. The units offer an Eco mode to reduce power consumption by up to 67 percent and a speedy five-millisecond response time to ensure that even highly dynamic video is rendered with smooth fluid motion without ghosting or other artifacts.

For businesses, the 22-inch and 24-inch widescreen BL series monitors feature an automatic eye-protect sensor to reduce eye fatigue, while an anti-glare, matte-finish panel keeps distracting reflections to a minimum. To save energy, the monitors automatically switch to Eco mode when the user steps away from his or her desk, and switch back to normal mode when the user returns.

With a 120-Hz refresh rate and two-millisecond response time, the 23.6-inch XL series monitor was developed specifically for professional gamers. A display mode hotkey allows users to instantly switch between 17-inch, 19-inch, 19-inch widescreen, and 22-inch widescreen formats. The monitor offers an FPS mode specific for shooter games, and is certified as NVIDIA(R) 3D Vision(TM)-ready.

Offering the ultimate in personal visual entertainment, the 24-inch widescreen V series monitor offers full HD 1080p resolution with a 16:9 aspect ratio, while the E series 24- and 27-inch monitors feature VA technology to enable ultra-wide viewing angles of 178 degrees/178 degrees. Both V and E series monitors feature amazing 20,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratios, true 8-bit panel presentation, and eight-millisecond response time.
