3D Projectors

BenQ W1080ST 3D DLP Projector

BenQ just announced a full HD 1080p 3D short-throw home theater projector for $1,299. The new W1080ST projector uses the high-end DLP Dark Chip 3 (DC3), which is typically reserved for higher-priced models. In addition, the projector offers 10,000:1 contrast ratio and 2000 lumen brightness with built-in 10-watt stereo speakers for added convenience. The W1080ST delivers full 3D connectivity from external devices such as Blu-ray players and gaming consoles, and supports formats and standards including NVIDIA 3DTV Play, DLP Link, and dual HDMI.

The short-throw W1080ST projects an image more than 100 inches wide at less than six feet away from the screen. To safeguard close-range installations, the W1080ST also features an “Auto Blank” mode that blocks light output when objects are detected in front of the lens. Especially useful for coffee-table setups and other short-throw scenarios in small spaces, the mode avoids flashing light directly in users’ eyes when crossing the projection.

By integrating BenQ’s industry-leading SmartEco technology, the W1080ST further cuts costs and energy consumption. In “SmartEco” mode, the projector automatically adjusts lamp power to maximize power savings by delivering the best contrast and brightness performance using only as much light as needed. To further reduce power consumption, a “no source detected” mode automatically lowers brightness to 30 percent when no display has been detected for more than three minutes. In the “Eco Blank” mode, the projector is capable of power savings up to 70 percent. In addition, the W1080ST does not require filters to clean or replace, which further reduces the projector’s total cost of ownership (TCO).

To enable color calibration right out of the box, the W1080ST comes with a Rec. 709 color gamut, meaning users can enjoy projected color images that match film studio and television broadcast standards with no adjustments necessary. Combined with independent 3D color control and the flexibility of performance/color adjustment with three preset modes and two user modes, the W1080ST offers outstanding benefits for consumers who demand big screen entertainment regardless of their room requirements.

The W1080ST is also ISFccc-certified by the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF), another feature that was until now only reserved for higher-priced video displays. ISFccc enables viewers to enjoy a perfectly calibrated picture with two optimized modes — ISF Day and ISF Night — delivering an unparalleled professional viewing experience. Furthermore, at only 6.4 pounds the projector is portable enough to take the movie or gaming experience to other locations if desired.
