With 4 times the resolution of a 1080p projector the W1700 produces awe-inspiring clarity for ultimate detail.
Accurate Color and Image Integrity
With a single DMD chip producing the image the W1700 avoids common alignment issues experienced on projectors which use multiple panels. This ensured image integrity and colour accuracy while producing a razor sharp image.
Flawless Optics for Superb Image Quality
The BenQ 4K lens systems uses high grade all glass optics for superior light penetration and focus. Some brands cut corners with a resin or plastic lens. Proprietary lens coating ensure low light beam dispersion which minimises chromatic aberration ensuring a sharp focus on all colour wavelengths.
Hyper-Realistic Video Quality with HDR
The W1700 offers support for the new HDR10 standard and exclusive Auto HDR colour rendition. This produces a picture with greater brightness and contrast range for a superior picture.
Auto HDR Natural Color Rendition for Lifelike Color Realism
Some projectors with HDR produce biased colour, often they will oversaturate the greens or reds making the image look unnatural. The BenQ W1700 comes with Auto HDR natural colour rendition technology which produced breathtaking HDR 4K visuals with perfect colour automatically tuned.
Cinema-Optimized HDR Performance Preserves Dark Details in Total Clarity
Some HDR projectors loose crucial detail and display incorrect greyscales due to their inferior colour processing. The BenQ W1700 features cinema optimised HDR technology to ensure a balance of colour and accurate greyscales for total clarity.
CinematicColor™ for Colors as Directors Envisioned
CinematicColor™ technology delivers Rec.709 HDTV colour accuracy to the W1700. Rec.709 is the same colour standard used on Hollywood filming equipment ensuring you get the colour the directors intended when the movie was filmed.
Only True Colors Convey Deep Feelings
Accurate true colours help convey the emotions of a movie and to complete the immersive effect of a big screen projector keeping you locked in the story. BenQ home cinema projectors embody our belief to “Convey the truest colour and impart the deepest feelings to the viewer.” BenQ engineers who are both THX and ISF certified lead the CinematicColor™ team of technology experts to delivery the REC.709 standard to deliver perfect colour consistency.
