BenQ Unveils RL2460HT Gaming Monitor

BenQ America Corp., a globally renowned LED and gaming monitor expert, will launch its new RL2460HT gaming monitor at this year's International CES. A dedicated professional monitor for three of the gaming industry's largest categories - console gaming, RTS- and MOBA-style games, and fighting games - the RL2460HT is equipped with BenQ's exclusive RevolutionEyes technology to provide the visual comfort gamers need for better performance during prolonged hours of competitive play.

The new RL2460HT has been specifically optimized for real-time strategy (RTS), first-person shooter (FPS) console games such as the all-new Call of Duty: Ghosts, MOBA-style games like StarCraft ll: Heart of the Swarm, League of Legends, and Defense of the Ancients (Dota 2), as well as for popular fighting games such as Mortal Kombat.

"With the RL2460HT, we're offering exciting special features for some of the professional gaming industry's most popular titles, played by millions of in-person and online gamers," said Bob Wudeck, Associate Vice President, Strategy and Business Development at BenQ America Corp. "For instance, we went to top gaming pros such as fighting game legend Justin Wong of Evil Geniuses to handcraft specific display modes and features for popular fighting games. One such feature boosts specific blue colors for fighting games to help players tell when they successfully defend an attack, without distorting the rest of the image. Only BenQ delivers this kind of precision color optimization for the pro gamer."

To enhance monitor performance, the RL2460HT's RevolutionEyes technology includes ZeroFlicker capabilities that eliminate traditional LED flicker issues, adding to eSports enthusiasts' comfort during competitive action and longer gaming sessions. The RL2460HT also features BenQ's Black eQualizer, which enables total gaming visibility by allowing players to adjust brightness without over-exposing white levels, revealing critical combat details with improved visibility in darkened areas. Additionally, BenQ's Low Blue Light technology removes up to 70 percent of blue spectrum light to protect gamers' eyes during extended periods of play, with several low blue light levels that automatically adjust emission without affecting picture quality.

With the RL2460HT's HDMI Out port, pro gamers can stream their game content after it goes through the monitor so that the audience sees exactly what the player has seen, without risk of lag or delay to the player. In this manner, pro gamers can preserve monitor speed and performance regardless of the streaming system used. The monitor provides a height-adjustable stand with a precision adjustment marker system that makes setup fast and easy, enabling the player to duplicate the precise setup every time and everywhere.

Like the other monitors in the BenQ RL series, the RL2460HT includes a 24-inch, LED-powered TN panel with virtually no input lag and industry-leading 1 ms response time. Other features include integrated speakers, two HDMI ports along with standard DVI and VGA connections, and SmartScaling for gaming pros to customize their screen viewing area for optimal viewing performance.

Available early in Q1 2014, BenQ's new RL2460HT gaming monitor retails for $249.

Same abbreviation, though a stupid mistake.
I find it silly to cater a monitor to a game genre, what's the point really? What if someone suddenly switches to another genre?
Just another marketing hoax.
Reminds me of the days when people argued Cherry MX Blacks for FPS games and Cherry MX Blue/Red (can't remember which one it was) for RTS games.

A gaming monitor, eh? Does it include a scaler ASIC that supports variable v-sync or have a G-Sync module it? No? Then it's back to the drawing board, BenQ.

To be honest if the said features prove to be working, it'll be more important than G-Sync.
This Benq is catering people who abuse himself with really long gaming session everyday than graphic whore.

Idk in US, but in asia it's common among teenagers to do that silly thing everyday (also with dark room - weird). Me included years ago.
