BenQ CinePro HT8060 and HT9060 4K Projectors Increase Color Accuracy

New for 2019, the BenQ HT8060 and HT9060 4K HDR DLP projectors offer your choice of Rec.709 or DCI-P3 color space for under $10K.

BenQ HT9060 4K HDR Projector 2019

True 4K UHD Projectors with 8.3 Million Pixels for less than $10K

BenQ just released two CinePro 4K UHD HDR DLP projectors for high-end home theaters. These 2019 models, HT8060 and HT9060 replace the HT8050 and HT9050 respectively, and maintain the same pricing at $7999 and $8999 each. The main improvement over the previous models are increases in color accuracy. However, there does not seem to be a distinguishing feature in each product’s design and they all maintain the same 2200 ANSI lumens‎ with 50000:1 contrast ratio.

The HT8060 earns THX Certification with Rec.709 100% coverage of the color gamut. The more expensive HT9060 drops THX, but upgrades to American film industry’s super-wide DCI-P3 color space, which covers a far greater visible spectrum than Rec. 709.

Both CinePro Series HT8060 and HT9060 4K UHD HDR projectors use the latest DLP chipset that eliminates pixel shifting and blending, producing 8.3 million distinct pixels for true 4K UHD performance.

BenQ provides a factory calibration report to ensure the projector was tested and adjusted for precise D65 color temperature, gamma, black level, white level, neutral gray, RGBCMY color tracking, hue, saturation, brightness and output from different interfaces based on ITU-R Rec. 709. The HT9060 combines CinematicColor with the Philips ColorSpark HLD LED system to reach the DCI-P3 color space, which delivers three times the light output of current LED technology. As a result, viewers never have to hassle with lamp replacements that can lose brightness over time and can enjoy phenomenal picture quality for years to come, even in highly lit environments. In addition, a proprietary, 14-element, six-group and 4K-optimized lens that was built from the ground up pulls the image from the chip while preserving even the subtlest details in perfect clarity — keeping the original brightness while minimizing chromatic aberration.

The CinePro 4K UHD Series takes on unprecedented levels of depth, clarity and realism with HDR10 support. In addition, auto color and accurate tone mapping offer greater brightness and contrast, so every detail conceived in the director’s mind but originally hidden is revealed in every scene. Both projectors are compatible with the optional Panamorph Paladin anamorphic lens, which delivers the immersive 2.4:1 aspect ratio of commercial cinemas without letterboxing, delivering 2 million more pixels for increased brightness and detail to recreate the full cinema experience right at home.

BenQ’s CinePro Series projectors can be customized for any space, along with preset light balance modes for day and night. incorporating the Imaging Science Foundation’s (ISF) highly reputed ISFccc Certified Visual Calibration. The projectors’ 1.5X big zoom provides perfect imaging from a wide range of throw distances and mounting and placement options. With front-facing ventilation, they’re ideal for a subtle ceiling-mount or concealing within a cabinet or wall inset, while the sleek modern design makes them blend into any space. They’re compatible with most ceiling mounts, allowing installers to switch out old technology quickly as homeowners look to upgrade their viewing experience. Finally, the video and power signal ports are separated to accommodate thick cables and HDMI/power cable locks, ensuring effortless connection while preventing system failure related to unintended disconnection.

“The CinePro Series breaks the mold by using the same cinematic technology and color space to recreate that awe-inspiring, true-to-life effect. These projectors are the industry’s first to bring together the best DLP 4K UHD chipset, DCI-P3 color-space accuracy and HDR support that’s unlike anything else available for under $10K,” said Bob Wudeck, senior director, business, education, and CinePro solutions at BenQ America Corp.
