High Native Contrast for the Finest Details

As one of the most important characteristics that determine the picture quality performance, native ANSI measures the ability of projectors to produce extreme levels of brightness and darkness. Generating industry-leading levels of high native ANSI contrast ratio performance, X12000 produces clearly deep, true blacks and resolves subtle layers and fine details in dark and bright scenes without washout.

BenQ X12000 Projector

Special Black-Paint Sealed Light Engine

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 X12000 light engine to boost contrast and render even the slightest details in the darkest scenes.

Precise Gamma Control

X12000 maintains accurate gamma correction to deliver the perfect brightness balance for fine details and shading, with smooth greyscale performance to prevent overexposed bright scenes and preserve every subtlety in dark areas.

BenQ X12000 Projector

Ideal Colour Temperature

X12000 strictly adheres to ideal colour temperatures to ensure true-to-life, cinematically accurate colours throughout every scene of any film.

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 optimized brightness and contrast. The result is picture quality with the utmost picture depth and colour performance.
