XL Series Displays Take Center Stage for CS:GO Major LAN Qualifiers and Championship Battles
COSTA MESA, Calif. — Feb 26, 2016 — BenQ America Corp., a globally renowned LED and gaming monitor expert, today announced that ZOWIE, the company’s new eSports brand, will supply the blazing-fast XL2411Z professional eSports gaming monitor for the Major League Gaming (MLG) Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) Major LAN Qualifier and Major Championship. Masterfully crafted for the ultimate gaming performance, the company’s XL displays provide first-person shooter (FPS) players with more of the tools they need — speed, accuracy and onscreen visibility — to conquer the opposition.
The XL2411Z PC gaming monitor will be put to the test at the CS:GO Major LAN Qualifier on Feb. 26-28 at the MLG Arena, in addition to the matches at the CS:GO Major Championship on March 29-April 3 at both the MLG and Nationwide Arenas in Columbus, Ohio. The Major LAN Qualifier will determine the eight challengers who will then take on the Cluj-Napoca Legends at the Major Championship, with legendary teams including Cloud9, Team Liquid and more slated to compete. The Major Championship marks the first time a Major will be held in North America with the best eSports pro teams from around the world competing for a $1,000,000 prize pool.
“The CS:GO Major Championship is a huge event for MLG and ZOWIE being that it is the first Major held in North America,” said Ronald Kim, eSports marketing at BenQ America Corp. “With our XL series 144hz PC eSports monitors featuring BenQ’s exclusive innovations, we can ensure teams will be able to compete at their fullest potential. The competition will be fierce, featuring some of the world’s greatest eSports pros, and we’re confident our displays will make the action shine.”
The XL2411Z widescreen full-HD display is packed with enhancements such as Black eQualizer, Display Mode, Smart Scaling, Motion Blur Reduction, Low Blue Light, gaming refresh rate optimization management (GROM) and a 1-ms GTG response time. The XL series is purpose-built to provide FPS players with an ultra-smooth experience via improved resolutions, faster response times and 144hz refresh rate — so gamers can focus on the details that matter most.
