Breathtaking Motion Picture Quality
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 colour accuracy, precise gamma, ideal colour 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.
CinematicColour™ for Colours as Directors Envisioned
CinematicColour™ technology utilizes optimal colour to bring out the most accurate and enhanced images to you. CinematicColour’s Rec.709 HDTV standard colour coverage, 6x speed RGBRGB colour wheel, high native ANSI contrast ratio performance and ISFccc certified visual calibration ensure an incredible image performance that delivers detailed, sharp and crisp visuals to accompany your home cinema enjoyment.
Rec. 709 HDTV Standard for the Finest Cinematic Colour Authentic HDTV Colour Accuracy
Rec. 709 is the international HDTV standard to guarantee accurate replica of cinematic colour as the director intended.
With 6X Speed RGBRGB Colour Wheel, W8000 is calibrated for cinematic colour modelled on the HDTV standard, Rec. 709, to deliver refined colours that are the truest possible reproduction of the original palette of your video.
How Our Projectors Are Designed for Rec. 709
Only displays that conform to Rec. 709 can reproduce colours correctly in all images through an entire movie. While most projector manufacturers choose a saturated colour tone bias to increase colourfulness, resulting in colour accuracy loss, W8000 achieves the Rec. 709 colour standard. The process of building a projector includes many variables such as lenses, lamps and colour 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 colours 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 colour segments and colour wheel coating, the factors that directly affect colour gamut and brightness of a projector.
To maximize colour accuracy, the process of software optimisation involved adjusting the blacks, whites and greys towards D65 defined by Rec. 709. And the three primary and three secondary colours were adjusted one by one, until they were as close as possible to the references on the Rec. 709 colour gamut.
Production Line Quality Control
Three colour adjustment stations in the production line perform final checks on every single unit of our Rec. 709 projectors. Using exclusive BenQ colour adjustment procedures, we make sure each projector is manufactured according to the Rec. 709 colour standard, and BenQ quality engineers perform final colour 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 optimised 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.
Unmatched Image Performance & Viewing Quality
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.
An ingenious solution that intensifies your viewing pleasure while saving energy, SmartEco™ automatically adjusts lamp brightness based on content to project richer blacks and increase contrast for tiny text and subtle details.
Flawless All-Glass Optics for the Best Viewing Quality
The BenQ Full HD 1080p optical system uses only the highest grade glass for superior light penetration and realistic image quality. Proprietary low-dispersion lens coatings minimize chromatic aberration, so you can enjoy your favourite HD content in brilliant clarity.
*Available for Wide Zoom, Standard, Semi Long, and Long Zoom 1 lens
State of the Art Image Uniformity via TIR
BenQ’s pioneering Total Inner Reflection (TIR) optical system utilizes multiple prisms forming precise beam angles, dispersing light to reflect more uniformly from the Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) and register beautifully even colour, brightness, and fidelity across the entire projected image. The result is pristine image quality without blemish across the entire big screen, with nothing to distract the audience from flawless cinema enjoyment.
Hollywood Magic in Your Home Cinema
CinemaMaster™ turns any room into a world-class home theatre with video-enhancing technologies sure to please even the most critical movie enthusiasts.
Inserting 36 interpolated frames between sequences produces seamless, vivid 60 frame-per-second videos. You’ll be the action hero of your own theatre, crushing the evils of laggy images, jittery playback and blurry shadows.
Colour Enhancer modulates complex colour algorithms to flawlessly render saturated colours, fine gradients, intermediate hues and subtle pigments.
Pixel Enhancer is a motion-adaptive edge enhancement feature that detects changes in colour between an object and its background to produce sharp edges and precise surface textures.
The Flesh Tone feature prevents discolouration of skin tones from the light of the projection beam, portraying every skin tone in its most beautiful shade.
Digital Colour Transient Improvement (DCTI) & Digital Luminance Transient Improvement (DLTI)
Sophisticated algorithms significantly improve colour and light output when producing images with contrasting colours or bright and dark scales. DCTI heightens colour vibrancy for drastic colour transitions without noise interference. DLTI reduces noise from fast switching of varied luminances to optimised brightness and contrast. The result is picture quality with the utmost picture depth and colour performance.
Independent 3D Colour Control for All 6 Primary Colours
BenQ’s unique colour management tool allows you to fine-tune the gain, saturation and hue of six primary colours (R/G/B/C/M/Y) individually. Now you can customize your colours to mimic nature, to simulate other galaxies, and to everything in between.
ISFccc® Certification - Professionally Calibrated Visual Entertainment
With the Imaging Science Foundation’s highly reputed ISFccc® calibration built-in, the W8000’s image and colour performance can be customized for any space, along with preset light balance modes for day and night.
Screen Filling Installation Flexibility
Regardless of the size of the home theatre or installation site, W8000 is ideally configured to facilitate the perfect professional install every time.
H/V Lens Shift for Perfect Picture Placement
With H/V Lens Shift, the lens can be shifted vertically or horizontally to fit perfectly into any room or work around small obstacles with a dynamic range of projection locations. Image placement can be adjusted up/down or left/right without sacrificing image quality, resulting in a custom installation in any venue.
Big Zoom Options for Big Pictures in Different Spaces
Customise your home theatre installation by selecting from five different optical lenses with a wide range of throw distances to fit perfectly into rooms of any size. Big Zoom further increases installation flexibility to greatly expand mounting and placement options. With these features in tandem, W8000 is equipped to integrate seamlessly into all venues ranging from cosy family rooms and middle-sized living rooms to purpose-built screening rooms to deliver the installation versatility to optimise the viewing sweet spot.
