With THX Certification, Rec. 709 cinematic color fidelity, and ultra-high contrast, W8000 unleashes astounding picture quality for custom home theaters made perfect by CinemaMaster video enhancement and the installation flexibility of H/V lens shift and lens options.
THX Certification Guarantees Pure Cinematic Performance
Reserved only for best-in-class audio and video systems, THX Certification guarantees equipment for accurate reproduction of content as the director originally intended. To earn this prestigious and exclusive distinction, BenQ engineers pursued over 18 months of rigorous development comprising 200 THX laboratory tests covering over 500 data points. Their crowning achievement is the W8000 which delivers Rec.709 color accuracy, precise gamma, ideal color temperature, enhanced uniformity, super high native contrast ratio, and THX Mode, pre-calibrated by THX engineers for the most accurate out-of-the-box picture quality possible, to recreate every single detail of the authentic content and image quality filmmakers wanted you to see.
Rec. 709 HDTV Standard for the Finest Cinematic Color Authentic HDTV Color Accuracy
Rec. 709 is the international HDTV standard to guarantee accurate replica of cinematic color as the director intended.
How Our Projectors Are Designed for Rec. 709
Only displays that conform to Rec. 709 can reproduce colors correctly in all images through an entire movie. While most projector manufacturers choose a saturated color tone bias to increase colorfulness, resulting in color accuracy loss, W8000 achieves the Rec. 709 color standard. The process of building a projector includes many variables such as lenses, lamps and color wheel coating. We work relentlessly to close any gaps from those variances and to make our projectors perform exactly to Rec. 709. This is because we believe that colors matter to our users when enjoying movies as they were meant to be seen.
BenQ’s ISF-trained expert engineers tried more than 20 different combinations of color segments and color wheel coating, the factors that directly affect color gamut and brightness of a projector.
To maximize color accuracy, the process of software optimization involved adjusting the blacks, whites and greys towards D65 defined by Rec. 709. And the three primary and three secondary colors were adjusted one by one, until they were as close as possible to the references on the Rec. 709 color gamut.
Production Line Quality Control
Three color adjustment stations in the production line perform final checks on every single unit of our Rec. 709 projectors. Using exclusive BenQ color adjustment procedures, we make sure each projector is manufactured according to the Rec. 709 color standard, and BenQ quality engineers perform final color tests on each projector built to ensure Rec. 709 performance.
Spectacular Full HD 1080p Visual Performance
Treat your eyes the brilliance of a Full HD 1080p optimized optical system, enhanced by the Texas Instruments Darkchip™3 to produce superb picture quality and contrast ratio. Enjoy HD content with the finest clarity and sharpness – from Blu-ray and video games to live broadcasts.
High Native Contrast for the Finest Details
Generating industry-leading levels of contrast ratio performance, W8000 produces deep, true blacks for a truly awe-inspiring visual experience. In addition to the outstanding black level, W8000’s high native contrast clearly resolves subtle layers and fine details in dark scenes.
Furthermore, BenQ takes extra countermeasures to guard against the small possibility of stray light leakage from the light tunnel affecting contrast and obscuring fine details, a special black paint seals the W8000 light engine to boost contrast and render even the slightest details in the darkest scenes.
Class-Leading High Fill Factor
Featuring class-leading high fill factor, the W8000 shines more light into each pixel, improving definition for small text and fine details, and eliminating “screen door effect”, for beautifully rendered images.
Color Enhancer modulates complex color algorithms to flawlessly render saturated colors, fine gradients, intermediate hues and subtle pigments.
Pixel Enhancer is a motion-adaptive edge enhancement feature that detects changes in color between an object and its background to produce sharp edges and precise surface textures.
The Flesh Tone feature prevents discoloration of skin tones from the light of the projection beam, portraying every skin tone in its most beautiful shade.
Digital Luminance Transient Improvement (DLTI)
Sophisticated algorithms significantly improve color and light output when producing images with contrasting colors or bright and dark scales. DCTI heightens color vibrancy for drastic color transitions without noise interference. DLTI reduces noise from fast switching of varied luminances to optimized brightness and contrast. The result is picture quality with the utmost picture depth and color performance.
Independent 3D Color Control for All 6 Primary Colors
BenQ’s unique color management tool allows you to fine-tune the gain, saturation and hue of six primary colors (R/G/B/C/M/Y) individually. Now you can customize your colors to mimic nature, to simulate other galaxies, and to everything in between.
Professionally Calibrated Visual Entertainment
With the Imaging Science Foundation’s highly reputed ISFccc® calibration built-in, the W8000’s image and color performance can be customized for any space, along with preset light balance modes for day and night.
