BenQ has launched its latest creation – the W1080ST and W1070 projectors – at the CES 2013, with a simultaneous launch in Inidia. BenQ claims that the W1080ST and W1070 are the world’s first Full-HD short-throw video projectors.
The projectors support multiple forms of 3D by directly connecting through 2 HDMI 1.4 ports to various devices like Blu-ray, 3D broadcasting, video games, PC etc. with NVIDIA 3DTV PC connectivity. The company statement adds that the projectors come with built-in 10W speakers and SmartEco power saving feature.
The BenQ W1080ST, the first short-throw Full-HD video projector, is able to project 100-inch big screen in just 1.5 metre, which gives big screen fun in any limited space, without image obstruction or shadows on the screen, ideal in any situation, but particularly important for use with motion sensing games.
Launched simultaneously at CES 2013 and in India
“It has been our constant endeavor to provide the best technology to our consumers to enjoy the ultimate big screen entertainment in their living rooms, we continue to bring the same excitement in 2013 with the launch of world’s first full HD short-throw video projectors W1080ST & W1070,” said, Rajeev Singh, Country Head & General Manager, BenQ India.
“Both projectors deliver full HD 1080p quality and are equipped with 3D capabilities through which you can enjoy all the fun of motion sensing and 3D games enhanced in size through the use of a home entertainment projector taking home entertainment & gaming to a whole new level.”.
In addition, the W1070 and W1080ST are ISFccc-certified by the Imaging Science Foundation a feature that was until now only reserved for higher-priced video displays. ISFccc enables viewers to enjoy a perfectly calibrated picture along with two optimized modes – ISF Day and ISF Night — delivering an unparalleled professional viewing experience.
BenQ's SmartEco technology has provided DLP projectors for use in home entertainment. This can save up to 70 percent of lamp power consumption and lower maintenance costs through its dynamic power saving features while still bringing an ultra-vivid picture quality to your living room.
