BenQ has announced the launch of three new 4K projectors that promise high color accuracy without breaking the bank.
The new models include the W5700, W2700, and W1720 models, which are expected to cost around $ 3,300 ($ 2,500), $ 1900 ($ 1,500), and $ 1300 (not bad) high-resolution 4K projectors.
However, prices for all three models in the US and UK have yet to be confirmed, while Australian prices for W5700 and W2700 have already been verified by BenQ.
All three of the new projectors support 4K and are therefore supplied with a UHD lamp. They are also fully calibrated and can start immediately with the 4K movies without affecting the settings.
The main business card of these projectors is their high color accuracy. For BenQ, filmmakers felt that this was very important to the film.
In a presentation, a company spokesperson told us that the company needs to make a choice between "preferred" and "faithful" color reproduction ̵
In the end, BenQ opted for the latter, claiming that the W2700 and W5700 models are the first "4K home theater DLP projectors with DCI-P3 color."
In short, DCI-P3 is the film industry film projection standard that covers over 20% more "color space" than the previous standard sRGB.
This, combined with BenQ's CinematicColor technology, means that the W2700 covers 95% of the color standard, while the W5700 covers the full 100%. For laymen, this means that colors should look fantastic when watching movies with these new projectors.
In addition, the W2700 supports a brightness of 2,000 lumens and a contrast ratio of 30,000: 1, while the beefy W5700 offers 1800 lumens and a contrast ratio of 100,000: 1.
This means that your movies should look great, even if you can not watch your movies in total darkness. In addition to the factory calibration, these new projectors are also fantastic for people who do not have to build up for long.
Although the W2700 and W5700 have some similarities, they were developed for different scenarios. Designed for easy home viewing, the W2700 has a modern, lightweight design that fits unobtrusively in most living spaces, and features two built-in 5W speakers in a 2: 1 stereo configuration.
4K Small Budget Display
However, the W5700 is designed for use in a special home theater room and has a matte black design so the viewing experience in the dark is not compromised.
Finally, we have the cheapest of the new projectors, the W1720, which builds on the success of its predecessor W1700.
Thanks to a short-throw feature, it can emit a huge 100-inch image more than 3 feet away and have a peak brightness of 2000 lumens and a 10: 000: 1 contrast ratio.
When it comes to the W1700 This latest model could be a fantastic value for money, but only time will tell – all three new projectors will go on sale in late March / early April. [19659002ÜberHiFi?
