BenQ Sponsors Evolution Championship Series 2015

Gamers Compete on BenQ's RL2460HT Monitor During Largest Fighting Game Tournament in the World

COSTA MESA, Calif. -- July 1, 2015 -- BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned digital lifestyle solutions provider and professional gaming monitor pioneer, today announced a new partnership with Evolution Championship Series (EVO) 2015. Featuring BenQ's innovative RL2460HT gaming monitor -- designed for console gaming, real-time strategy (RTS)- and MOBA-style games, and fighting games -- the world-class tournament brings together the planet's most prolific eSports athletes on July 17 to 19 at the Bally's / Paris Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas for an action-packed fighting game event. At the tournament, BenQ will be host to members of the Evil Geniuses and Cloud 9 pro gaming teams. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet and greet the eSports pros, as well as watch them in action as they run live demos of fighting games on the company's professional gaming monitors. In addition, BenQ will hold a raffle giveaway of an RL2460HT tournament monitor to lucky attendees.


"Our RL2460HT gaming monitor is packed with performance-enhancing features that take the gaming experience to a new level of excitement," said Felix Pimentel, Senior Product Marketing Manager for BenQ America Corp. "Engineered using direct input from the industry's top gamers, the monitor features a unique 'Fighting Mode' specifically designed for fighting games and an incredibly low 0.001-frame input lag for astoundingly fast response times. We look forward to unleashing this new level of innovation at this year's EVO tournament; players will definitely provide the audience with some unforgettable performances."

BenQ's RL2460HT is optimized for (RTS), first-person shooter (FPS) console games such as the all-new Call of Duty(R): Ghosts, MOBA-style games like StarCraft(R) ll: Heart of the Swarm(TM), League of Legends(TM), and Defense of the Ancients (Dota(R) 2), as well as for popular fighting games such as Mortal Kombat X(TM). The monitor also features BenQ's Black eQualizer, which enables greater gaming visibility by allowing players to adjust brightness without over-exposing white levels, revealing critical combat details with improved visibility in darkened areas.

To further enhance monitor performance, the RL2460HT is equipped with BenQ's RevolutionEyes(TM) technology, including ZeroFlicker(TM) capabilities that eliminate traditional LED flicker issues -- providing comfort during competitive action and longer gaming sessions. To enhance the visual experience even more, the display adds BenQ's Low Blue Light technology. Removing up to 70 percent of blue spectrum light, this innovation protects gamers' eyes during extended periods of play using several low blue light levels that automatically adjust emission without affecting picture quality.

Using an HDMI(R) output port, pro gamers can stream their game content in real time after it goes through the monitor -- providing an identical viewing experience to the audience without introducing any lag, delay, or compromises to the monitor's speed or performance. In addition, the 24-inch, LED-powered TN panel includes 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. To set up the monitor rapidly, the RL2460HT provides a height-adjustable stand with a precision adjustment marker system -- enabling the player to duplicate precise setup specifications within a few seconds.

The EVO tournament is the largest and longest-running fighting game tournament in the world. Open to anyone, the event features competitions between established gaming champions as well as free stations for amateurs to match up against one another -- providing the international gaming community with a unique opportunity to network with peers and competitors from around the globe. This year's game lineup includes Ultra Street Fighter IV, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Guilty Gear Xrd, Killer Instinct, Mortal Kombat X, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, and more.
