Pro Teams Battle for $500,000 in Prizes Using Fast-Action RL and XL Series Gaming Monitors

COSTA MESA, Calif. -- Oct. 12, 2015 -- BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned professional gaming monitor pioneer and official gaming monitor sponsor for the 2015 Major League Gaming (MLG) Pro League, today announced that the company's innovative RL and XL series gaming monitors will be used by professional gamers throughout the action-packed MLG(R) World Finals in New Orleans. Held at the historic Ernest N. Morial Convention Center from Oct.16-18, the three-day tournament brings together the world's most talented Dota 2 and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare teams to compete for over $500,000 in prize money.


"The MLG World Finals promises to be a big celebration as we recognize the league's 100th event to date," said J.Y. Hu, Vice President, Business Line Management at BenQ America Corp. "To ensure three straight days of heart-racing activities, we're equipping world-leading teams such as Cloud9 and Evil Geniuses with our feature-rich RL and XL gaming monitors, exhibiting our full display line at the show, and providing discounts for participants in attendance. We look forward to a very memorable final and continued collaboration with gaming's greatest talents to create the market's best monitors."

Supporting teams such as Evil Geniuses -- professional gaming's recent winners of over $6 million at "The International 2015," Cloud9, TCM, and Virtus.Pro, BenQ remains fully committed to providing the ultimate gaming experience via direct collaboration with eSports pros. At this year's MLG World Finals, BenQ will be equipping all competitors with RL2455HM and RL2460HT monitors for the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare console tournament in addition to XL2430T and XL2420Z monitors for the Dota 2 PC competition.

BenQ's RL2455HM console gaming monitor is engineered specifically for fast-paced first-person shooter (FPS) games. With an ultra-fast 1-ms GTG response time, users experience an ultra-low input lag that renders action without ghosting or latency from peripheral devices. Also optimized for FPS console games in addition to MOBA-style games, BenQ's RL2460HT comes equipped with the company's exclusive RevolutionEyes(TM) technology to provide the visual comfort gamers need for better performance during prolonged hours of competitive play.

Enhanced with features such as Motion Blur Reduction 2.0 and Black eQualizer 2.0, BenQ's XL2430T panel is made to push on-screen performances even further -- detecting the input source and automatically adjusting the amount of brightness in the game within the range selected by the user. As a result, players can identify targets effortlessly and react quickly to any in-game situation without taking a time out for manual adjustments. Clocking-in at an impressive 1-ms GTG response time, the XL2420Z monitor features a gaming refresh rate up to 144 HZ, optimization management (GROM), Motion Blur Reduction, Black eQualizer, Display Mode, Smart Scaling, and much more.

The 2015 MLG World Finals mark MLG's 100th live event and will commemorate the organization's rich tradition of eSports that have seen over 50,000 live event competitors, 45 million online matches played by over 10 million registered users, as well as $13.5 million awarded in prize money so far.
