A new professional grade home theater projector has been detailed.
BenQ has announced the release of its latest projector model. The flagship HT6050 projector is now available through BenQ Integrators' Choice distribution partners for $3,799.
"The new HT6050 projector uses the latest DLP DarkChip3 technology and a unique color wheel design to deliver HD cinematic color right out of the box," said J.Y. Hu, vice president at BenQ America Corp. "Customers no longer have to settle for a less-than-cinema-grade experience and can enjoy excellent video quality and accurate colors just as the director intended — right in the comfort of their own home and at an affordable price point compared to models that cost two to three times more."
The projector offers 1080p resolution with 2,000 ANSI lumens of brightness and a 5000:1 contrast ratio. Likewise, the model uses the company's CinemaMaster advanced audio and video processing suite along with a 6X speed RGBRGB color wheel to enhance video content and accurately achieve the Rec. 709 color standard for HD video right out of the box. Five optional big zoom lenses from 0.77:1 to 5:1 with -20~60% vertical and ± 5% horizontal lens-shifting are integrated as well. The projector also features dual HDMI connectivity (HDMIx1, HDMI/MHLx1), SmartEco energy-saving technology, and ISFccc Certification with optimized modes for ISF Day and ISF Night calibration. Finally, an optional full HD wireless kit for streaming uncompressed 1080p content (including 3D) is available.
In addition to the new HT6050 projector, BenQ also recently announced the release of the PV3200PT 4K Ultra HD Monitor ($1,499) for video editing professionals. The LED LCD monitor features a 32-inch 4K Ultra HD 3840x2160 IPS panel with a 16:9 aspect ratio. Designed for use with professional video and photo editing applications, the display offers support for 10-bit, 100-percent sRGB color, following the Rec. 709 standard.
