THX HD Display Certification
As the first ever BenQ projector to be awarded the prestigious and exclusive THX Certification, BenQ engineers pursued over 18 months of rigorous development comprising 200 THX laboratory tests covering over 500 data points to ensure that it meets Rec. 709 colour accuracy, precise gamma, ideal colour temperature, enhanced uniformity, and super high native contrast ratio requirements. Originally developed by Lucasfilm engineers to distinguish only best-in-class audio and video systems, THX Certification ensures that certified equipment can accurately deliver content as the director originally intended, and W8000's THX Mode is pre-calibrated by THX engineers to deliver the most accurate out-of-the-box picture quality possible.
Top-of-the-Line Performance and Versatility
In addition to THX Certified picture quality performance from its strict Rec. 709 RGBRGB colour wheel and high pixel fill factor, razor-sharp clarity and superbly sensitive high ANSI contrast from DLP technology, the Full HD 1080p W8000 offers state-of-the-art image adjustment settings to tailor visual characteristics perfectly to viewer preferences with CinematicColor and CinemaMaster technologies. Exact adjustments to gamma, colour temperature, flesh tones, motion frame rates, and more can be made to suit individual requirements.
Further enhancing flexible customizability, W8000 is compatible with five interchangeable optional lenses including 2.4:1 anamorphic aspect ratio, to integrate seamlessly into space ranging from cozy family rooms to purpose-built audio visual screening rooms. Moreover, horizontal and vertical hardware lens shift and big zoom capability preserve perfect image quality while facilitating installation flexibility over a variety of mounting and placement options.
Powered by the industrial-grade durability DLP technology and the robust DMD chip, W8000 produces accurate colours and brilliant uniformity without decay for years to come. The home theatre projector is priced at AED 9,999.
