National, 10 July 2024: BenQ, a global leader in display technology, proudly announces the launch of the RD280U monitor, part of the groundbreaking RD Series — the world’s first range of monitors designed specifically for programmers and developers. The RD280U is equipped with BenQ’s innovative Fine-Coated Panel, featuring advanced anti-glare and anti-reflective properties to create an optimal and adaptable coding environment.

The RD280U boasts a 28.2-inch display with a 3:2 aspect ratio and 4K+ resolution, enabling developers to view more lines of code vertically. It includes a KVM switch, multi-stream transport, and BenQ’s comprehensive productivity software suite. The proprietary coding mode enhances text clarity for improved code distinction in various lighting conditions. Additionally, the monitor features a Coding HotKey for a focused workflow and the MoonHalo Backlight for improved illumination.

The MoonHalo Backlight creates an immersive atmosphere for late-night coding, reducing eye strain and providing additional lighting in low-lit areas while minimizing daytime glare. It is a revolutionary tool for programmer workspaces.

The RD Series prioritizes comfort with Night Hours Protection, featuring minimal brightness, an eye-care filter, dark room optimization, and Brightness Intelligence Gen2 for automatic ambient light adjustment. Display Pilot 2 software further enhances the user experience by enabling function adjustments without the OSD. It includes tools like Desktop Partition, Software Dimming, Application Mode, Direct Search, Focus, Circadian Mode, HiDPI, and Shortcuts.
