BenQ will soon be releasing its highly anticipated TK800 HDR-compatible DLP home theater projector. It uses four-way XPR pixel-shift technology, which combines image processing with a microsecond-fast DMD to create two pixels per frame, simulating UHD 4K resolution with compatible content. Add HDR10 compatibility and 3000 lumens of brightness to the mix and you have a formula for vibrant, detailed movies in a variety of lighting conditions for multiple applications, such as sport watching, console gaming and movies. Projector-optimized HDR processing and a color wheel that achieves up to 92% of the Rec. 709 color space also help the TK800 provide accurate color, which is further enhanced by content-specific picture and audio modes, such as Football Mode for open-stadium events and Sport Mode for indoor events.
The TK800 has a 1.47 to 1.76:1 throw ratio, which, combined with 1.2x zoom, can produce 100" images from 10.66' away. Two HDMI inputs let you connect your digital HD sources, such as a cable/satellite box or Blu-ray player, and the VGA input allows for a simple connection to your computer. Control connections, such as RS-232 and 12V triggers, enable easy integration with pre-existing control systems.
Also coming soon is the Full HD HT2050A, which outputs up to 2200 lumens and is DLPLink 3D-compatible for use with DLPLink RF 3D glasses. It also has two HDMI inputs and a VGA input, plus RCA component video and composite video connections for legacy devices. Its 1.15 to 1.5:1 throw ratio can project a 100" image from just 8.2' away, and clear images can be produced up to 180".
