Cinema Color Reality for Exceptional Image Quality
For the most captivating cinematic experience, BenQ has infused the W1070+ and W1080ST+ with “Cinema Color Reality” picture performance. The most authentic, lifelike colors are rendered by a simulated REC. 709 gamut and the enhancement of a six-times speed, six-segment RGBRGB color wheel and BrilliantColor™ technology. No details will escape your eyes in the deepest, truest black with high native ANSI contrast ratio that is enhanced by high 2200 ANSI lumen brightness, DLP DarkChip3TM and DMD. Both the W1070+ and the W1080ST+ are built to support 3D Full HD projection to fully immerse you in the joy of home entertainment fun. Plus, they are ISFccc®-certificated for professional calibration service from the Imaging Science Foundation. So you can have the color performance of the projector custom-calibrated to fit your living space.
100” of Cinematic Enjoyment in a Short Distance
The W1080ST+ is built with BenQ’s world-leading short-throw technology to deliver 100” of cinematic enjoyment in a mere distance of 1.5 meters, while the W1070+ projects a 100” big picture in 2.5 meters. Equipped with short-throw projection capability, the W1080ST+ makes an ideal choice for small spaces and motion-gesture gaming as it can be placed closer to the screen to avoid shadow disruptions.
An Audio Performance that Moves You
Besides the superior visual performance, the new home video projectors are built with a 10W resonant chamber speaker that is expertly tuned to immerse you in your favorite movie, video or music with crisp-clear audio quality and deeper base tones. There are also four preset sound modes and an equalizer setting available to optimize any music you choose for the most optimal audio enjoyment.
User-Friendly Projectors that Are Simple to Install and Set Up
Setting up the home video projectors is a simple task for just about anyone in the family. Both the W1070+ and the W1080ST+ are equipped with side projection capability to support off-center projector placement. This allows the projector to be flexible placed on a side table instead of on the coffee table, which might be used for popcorns and drinks. To set up the projector for the first time, you can follow the set-up wizard, which guides you through the set-up process with ultra-clear visual instructions and a self-explanatory user interface design.
From Mobile to Big-Screen Entertainment
The W1070+ and the W1080ST+ are MHL-ready to amplify your mobile enjoyment. Using an MHL cable or a 3rd-party MHL dongle, you can easily stream digital contents stored in your MHL-supported smart devices onto the big screen with a simple plug and play.
Both home video projectors will be available in mid October for purchase worldwide. For more information, please visit ap.BenQ.com.
