Breathtaking 8.3 Million Pixel Picture Quality Without Artifacts
4K UHD True 8.3 Million Pixel Performance for Perfect Pictures with Subtle Details W12000 harnesses the advanced DLP 4K UHD DMD with 2716 x 1528 (4.15 million) micromirrors to achieve Consumer Technology Association's (CTA) 4K UHD specification, utilizing XPR fast-switching technology via dual-position precision optical actuator with state-of-the-art image processing to double the resolution to 8.3 million distinct pixels for each frame, four times the resolution of Full HD 1080p. Awe-inspiring 4K UHD image quality reduces blur between pixels to deliver supreme clarity and crisply defined fine details.
Image Detail Integrity and Color Accuracy Without Artifacts
With single DMD DLP technology to avoid inherent alignment issues of multiple panels, W12000 presents image integrity and accurate color, especially important with ultrafine 4K pixels much smaller than 1080p pixels. W12000 generates razor-sharp images and accurate colors devoid of artifacting such as blur, shadowing, and interference patterns for immaculate clarity.
Sophisticated 4K-Optimized Lens System for Pure Clarity
With class-leading lens architecture, W12000’s optical engine is specifically designed for spectacular 4K image quality, offering True Zoom function and presenting the best viewing quality with flawless optics.
High-Precision 14-Element 6-Group Lens Array
Super-high resolution 14-element lens array is structured into six groups with metal barrel and cell framework, far outshining 1080p projector technology with greater light penetration for long-lasting 4K intensity with heart-stopping color performance, clarity, and sharpness across the entire screen.
Synchronized True Zoom and Focus System for Ultimate Precision
W12000’s True Zoom system adjusts automatically to follow focus adjustments, optimizing the zoom ratio to deliver visually perfect focus without blemish. The three focusing lens groups adjust simultaneously with the zoom lens group to negate any curved field for immaculate cinematic performance and high-precision clarity at every corner of the image.
Flawless Optics for the Best Viewing Quality
The BenQ 4K 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 favorite 4K UHD content in brilliant clarity.
THX Certification Guarantees Authentic 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. Our crowning achievement, W12000 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.With 6X Speed RGBRGB Color Wheel, W12000 is calibrated for cinematic color modeled on the HDTV standard, Rec. 709, to deliver refined colors that are the truest possible reproduction of the original palette of your video.
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.
Dynamic Black Technology with Active Iris Control for Intelligent Contrast Optimization
Active iris controls the amount of light passing through the optical system to optimize contrast performance according to the scene. Dynamic Black™ technology analyzes the brightness levels of the scene to ideally adjust light output and contrast. Working to bring out subtle details in dark shadows and preventing bright scenes from becoming washed out, W12000 delivers impressive contrast for true black rendition and amazing picture depth, details, and clarity.
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 W12000 light engine to boost contrast and render even the slightest details in the darkest scenes.
4K Pixel Enhancer
4K 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.
Color Enhancer modulates complex color algorithms to flawlessly render saturated colors, fine gradients, intermediate hues and subtle pigments.
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.
Ultra-Wide 2.35:1 Anamorphic Format for Genuine Cinema Experience
W12000 offers ultra-wide 2.35:1 aspect ratio with native support for Panamorph anamorphic lenses enabling full-pixel cinemascope experiences, exactly as would be seen in a commercial digital cinema. W12000 is capable of filling an ultra-wide cinematic 2.35:1 screen by utilizing an optional anamorphic lens, for authentic digital cinema immersion in the original film format without distracting letterbox bars.
Expanded Viewing Angle for Truly Immersive Movie Enjoyment
