BenQ took to the stage at the Consumer Electronics Show this week to showcase its latest home cinema and gaming products, including an OLED gaming monitor that’s said to be the company’s widest and most immersive so far.


It’s called the BenQ EX48OUZ (pictured), and it’s a 48-inch beast that boasts some impressively high specs, with 4K resolution, a 120Hz refresh rate and super-quick response time of just 0.1ms.

The company said the OLED display technology ensures perfect black levels while showing plenty of detail in dark scenes, as you get with regular OLED televisions. The monitor is not just for gamers though, as BenQ points out that it can also do just as well with standard computer tasks like content creation, video and photo editing, checking emails, writing and so on.

Also on show was BenQ’s 27-inch EX27OM and EX27QM, and 34-inch EX321OU monitors, which have even higher refresh rates. The smaller two models are Full HD IPS displays equipped with a 240Hz panel, while the larger one is a 4K IPS panel with 144Hz refresh rate, providing a nice set of options for serious gamers.

If those options fail to satisfy, BenQ also has something even bigger in the shape of its HT2060 gaming projector, which can throw up a 100-inch picture from just 8.2 feet away. It’s said to offer 98% of Rec. 709 CinematicColor performance, ensuring brilliant colour accuracy.

Meanwhile the BenQ XL2566K monitor is aimed at e-sports professionals, the company said. This is a 24.5-inch monitor equipped with a blazing-fast TN panel and DyAc technology that minimises motion blur, making for a much smoother gaming experience than other monitors are capable of.

Finally, BenQ rolled out a couple of cinematic projectors aimed at movie lovers rather than video games enthusiasts. They include the HT4550i which is a Full HD projector that supports HDR for improved contrast and comes with vertical and horizontal lens shift functionality. Then there’s the BenQ GP500, which is a 4K HDR LED projector with 360-degree sound boasting 90% coverage of the DCI-P3 cinematic colour gamut and sweet spot adjustment capabilities.

BenQ’s latest projectors and monitors will arrive in the shops later this year, with the exact launch dates and pricing not yet confirmed.
