EINDHOVEN, THE NETHERLANDS, 2 MAY 2023 – BenQ, the leading DLP 4K projector brand, has today introduced an all-new range of home cinema projectors, each optimised to deliver unprecedented levels of cinematic quality in different at-home settings.
The W4000i, W2710i and TK860i feature pioneering BenQ HDR-PRO projector-optimised high dynamic range techniques, including Local Contrast Enhancer to reveal fine details in bright or dark scenes. They also deliver ideally balanced brightness in situations ranging from dedicated AV rooms to daytime living rooms, for professional-standard colour gamut performance up to 100% DCI-P3.
“Our new projectors far surpass today’s boundaries of resolution, colour gamut and dynamic range, for the ultimate in cinematic HDR movie experiences,” said Conway Lee, President of BenQ Corporation. “By combining true 4K resolution, CinematicColor™-powered coverage beyond Rec.709 to DCI-P3, and newly enhanced HDR-PRO technology, these home projectors outshine the competition, with certified Android TV and native Netflix for endless entertainment.”
Beyond HDR Quality with BenQ HDR-PRO
The next evolution of BenQ-proprietary HDR-PRO technology imbues the HDR10+ / HDR10 / HLG content with magnificent depth, revealing previously hidden cinematic details in both bright and dark scenes. HDR-PRO enhances the projectors’ overall dynamic range with industry-leading Local Contrast Enhancer and optimal HDR Tone Mapping, enabling perfect details in shadows and highlights, for better stereo perception. Local Contrast Enhancer is a cutting-edge algorithm that divides each scene into 1000+ zones and optimises each zone’s gamma independently. Local Contrast Enhancer preserves fine details in bright regions and shadowy areas of the screen.
CinematicColor™ Reproduces Colours as the Directors Intended
Surpassing the competition with hyper-realistic colour performance, BenQ home projectors achieve superb 4K HDR visual quality with CinematicColor™ technology. Each new projector conforms precisely to the Rec.709 HDTV colour space and to the broader DCI-P3 digital filmmaking colour spectrum. By harnessing novel lamp and LED light sources, each new projector produces ideally balanced brightness and colour performance, with factory-calibrated out-of-box colour accuracy in different rooms of the house:
· W4000i: Videophile Performance in Purpose-Built Dark AV Rooms
For professional screening rooms; W4000i provides CinematicColor™ 100% DCI-P3 performance with 3200 ANSI lumens of brightness from a 4LED light source.
· W2710i: Reference Quality in General Dark Rooms
For perfect HDR details with 100% Rec. 709 and 95% DCI-P3 CinematicColor™ performance; W2710i produces 2200 ANSI lumens of brightness for any darkened room.
· TK860i: True 4K Cinematic HDR Performances in Any Bright Room
With 3300 ANSI lumens of brightness, TK860i provides 98% Rec. 709 CinematicColor™ quality in any bright environment.
Each new BenQ home projector is equipped with Google-certified Android TV and preloaded Netflix for endless streaming and movie enjoyment. This is further augmented by comprehensive AV connectivity and wireless capabilities, and by integrated immersive audio systems to complete your home theatre.
