BenQ W1500 Wireless Projector

World’s First Wireless Full-HD 1080p 3D Projector With Built-in 5-GHz WHDI Technology

BenQ today announced the W1500 wireless full-HD (FHD) home entertainment 3D DLP projector supporting the Wireless Home Digital Interface (WHDI). Designed to provide complete source connectivity without the need for cabling, the W1500 enables simple installation, easy operation, 3D support, and full mobile device integration. The projector delivers an amazing one billion stunning colors with Colorific image quality for accurate, crisp, and long-lasting color, in addition to BenQ’s world-leading SmartEco lamp-saving technology to deliver a hassle-free home theater experience at a lower total cost of ownership (TCO).

The world’s first wireless projector with built-in 5-GHz WHDI technology, the W1500 projects uncompressed full-HD 1080p 2D or 3D content from sources such as Blu-ray and DVD players, set-top boxes, and gaming consoles without the need for HDMI cables (up to 65 feet away). The projector also supports wireless connectivity with any mobile device such as an iPad or Apple TV. The result is future-proofed setups and a simpler installation process by enabling complete freedom of projector placement.

For the total 3D experience, the projector supports HDMI, full 3D timing, NVDIA 3DTV Play, and 2D to 3D conversion. With the W1500, BenQ is introducing its newly redesigned 3D glasses, which are optional. To add convenience for portable applications, the W1500 features 2x 10-W speakers, audio inputs and outputs, as well as SRS Wow audio sound, vertical lens shifting, and 1.6x big zoom capabilities. For installations where space is at a premium, the projector’s short-throw ratio of 84 inches at 6 feet from the screen ensures maximum flexibility for any environment.

SmartEco technology automatically adjusts lamp power based on input content, providing optimal contrast and brightness output while saving energy. As a result, the W1500 increases lamp life up to 6,000 hours without any image-quality compromise. In “Eco Blank” mode, the projector blanks out the screen whenever projection isn’t needed, saving up to 70 percent of lamp power while a “No Source Detected” mode automatically lowers brightness to 30 percent when no display has been detected for more than three minutes. In “Standby” mode, the W1500 lowers power consumption to less than 0.5 W during periods of inactivity.

Price and Availability
The BenQ W1500 FHD wireless projector is available now $2,299.

$200 for a soundbar with Dolby Atmos? Does the Monoprice SB-300 Soundbar deliver the sonic goods or fall flat on its face?
