BenQ has launched the new W11000, which the company claims is the only DLP 4K UHD projector to earn a THX Certification. “Fully meeting Consumer Technology Association’s (CTA) requirements for 4K UHD with true 8.3-millionpixel resolution, W11000’s THX certification ensures cinematic performance to replicate the precise experience of attending a commercial digital cinema,” said the company in a statement.
“The crowning achievement of W11000 showcases the extent of BenQ’s technology leadership. No other projector demonstrates mastery of DLP, derived from the same technology in use at 100% of the world’s IMAX auditoriums, with 8.3-millionpixel UHD performance and THX Certification,” explained Manish Bakshi, the Managing Director, BenQ Middle East & Turkey.
The new projector uses the DLP 4K UHD DMD with XPR technology, to produce 3840 x 2160 pixels for true 8.3-millionpixel 4K UHD resolution. Single-DMD DLP technology ensures absolute image integrity and colour accuracy without artefacts that can be introduced by panel alignment issues, especially critical at 4K with much finer pixels than 1080p.
BenQ’s highly optimized 4K optical system then employs 14 high-resolution elements, a true zoom system, and special low-dispersion lens coatings to preserve spectacular visual quality for an authentic digital cinema experience. Passing three rounds of live testing at THX headquarters in San Francisco, W11000 offers supreme overall image performance and THX Mode, pre-calibrated by THX engineers for the most accurate out-of-box picture quality possible to deliver authentic cinematic content as filmmakers originally intended.
W11000’s CinemaMaster image processing technology improves vivid colour reproduction, flesh tone correction, and advanced digital colour and luminance noise reduction. W11000 is also ISFccc calibration ready, enabling professional in-home custom calibration.
W11000 natively supports 2.35:1 anamorphic aspect ratio, offering the ultra-wide cinemascope experience of commercial digital cinemas. Its UHD performance opens a wider viewing angle to allow comfortable viewing of ultra-detailed 4K images up close, maximizing the useable screen size in any given space for a mesmerizingly immersive movie watching experience.
