BenQ Introduces New RL2455HM Gaming Monitor With Blazing-Fast Response Time

Latest Monitor Offers Gamers Crisp, Blur-Free Experience to Take Console Gaming to a Whole New Level

LAS VEGAS — 2013 International CES — Jan. 7, 2013 — BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned provider of digital lifestyle innovations, today announced the expansion of its RL Series of professional gaming monitors with the launch of the new RL2455HM. Built on the advanced technology of the RL2450HT — featured on the Major League Gaming (MLG) 2012 championship circuit — the RL2455HM has been enhanced thanks to feedback directly from the gaming community. Gamers now get a blazing-fast 1-ms GTG response time, 2-watt stereo speakers, and dual HDMI(R) ports for the ultimate in connectivity and control. The monitor also comes packed with advanced custom settings, such as BenQ’s Black eQualizer, Display Mode, and Smart Scaling to give players an edge over their opponents.

“As the official MLG gaming monitor sponsor, players relied on our RL2450HT to deliver unprecedented levels of accuracy and control in a number of tournaments across the U.S.,” said Bob Wudeck, Director of Retail and e-Commerce at BenQ America Corp. “With the RL2455HM, we’ve taken all the advanced technologies of the RL2450HT, incorporated feedback from MLG pros, and created a powerful gaming monitor. Now home gamers can get the same experience as the pros, enabling an entirely new level of player performance.”

Designed specifically for console gaming, users get the ultimate experience for fast-paced first-person shooter (FPS) games such as the new Halo(R) 4 and Call of Duty(R): Black Ops 2, and popular fighting games like Mortal Kombat(TM) with an ultra-low input lag that renders action without ghosting or latency from mouse motion. The monitor’s dual HDMI ports provide full HD connectivity with PCs, cameras, Blu-ray(TM) players, and more, allowing users to enjoy their digital A/V entertainment effortlessly. The RL2455HM also features a 60Hz refresh rate tuned to match console video output for seamless connectivity, a 24-inch widescreen (16:9) full HD LED screen, LED backlighting for great color and low power consumption, and a 12 million to 1 contrast ratio for the best in picture quality.

To give players a competitive edge, the RL2455HM features BenQ’s Black eQualizer to enable total visibility by allowing gamers to adjust the screen brightness without over-exposing white levels — revealing critical combat details with improved visibility in darkened areas. To accommodate individual viewing preferences, a Display Mode allows gamers to switch between seven monitor screen sizes while the Smart Scaling feature gives players the ability to scale the screen on-the-fly to virtually any custom size — ranging from a 24-inch 1080p display to a traditional 17-inch 4:3 format — without impacting controller sensitivity. The monitor provides custom settings for color enhancement, and features 2-watt internal stereo speakers.

The new RL2455HM gaming monitor will be available in March 2013 at an MSRP of $229. Information on the full line of BenQ gaming monitors is available at gaming.benq.com.
