BenQ announced the EW3280U monitor today. The monitor features HDRi technology to improve color accuracy and image clarity as well as BenQ's eye-care technology that helps reduce eye strain during prolonged use. The BenQ EW3280U is available now for $800.

The BenQ EW3280U is a 32-inch monitor designed for entertainment. The 4K display can adjust to the lighting conditions in a room, thanks to HDRi intelligent technology. According to BenQ, this improves color performance, detail contrast, and image clarity. The monitor has a built-in sensor to detect ambient light and adjusts images on the screen accordingly. The display also supports HDR10 for high dynamic range.

The monitor utilizes BenQ's eye-care technology that auto-adjusts the display's brightness, color temperature, and clarity to improve the viewing experience. It has Low Blue Light technology to filter out blue light that can damage a person's eyes. It also has ZeroFlicker technology that eliminates over 200 flickers per second when compared to a traditional LCD screen. The reduction in flickers reduces eye strain.

People can also reduce strain on their eyes by switching to the monitor's ePaper mode. This simulates the look of an e-book with contrast, brightness, and color temperature adjusted to be ideal for reading.

The monitor supports 2.1 channel sound, including its built-in treVolo speaker system, which includes a subwoofer. The monitor's Digital Sound Processor allows a person to customize system audio.
