BenQ Launches W500 Home Theatre Projector


Senseye™ technology enhanced by HQV

TAIPEI, TAIWAN, – BenQ today announces the launch of the W500 3LCD projector targeting at home theatre enthusiasts. The 720p home theatre projector features BenQ’s Senseye™ technology, dynamic iris, HQV (Hollywood Quality Video) processor, 1,100 ANSI lumens and a high 5,000:1 contrast ratio. It also works seamlessly with a wide range of devices from conventional VCR to the latest gaming consoles, HD DVD players and Blu-ray DVD players.

Native HD-like experience
With the embedded HQV processor, the W500 not only converts SD content such as analog TV broadcasts to HD-quality video, but also analyzes 1,024 pixels in the source for each pixel in the final HD version for native HD-like images.

Flawless motion performance
BenQ W500 effectively smoothes away the “jaggies” that crop up along the edges of moving objects with the Multi-Dimensional Diagonal Filtering (MDDF) technology and is able to examine four fields instead of the usual two, using advanced “motion adaptive de-interlacing” to remove artifacts around moving objects that result when converting interlaced SD video to non-interlaced HDS video.

Superior high contrast
The iris-like lens design incorporated inside the W500 is a mechanism that mimics the human eye, adjusting the aperture after analyzing the incoming video signal. The aperture is contracted during dark scenes for truer black tones and enhanced details, while it is enlarged for bright scenes to maximize light output and enable a wider dynamic range.

Precise color reproduction
The W500 achieves greater color accuracy by handling each color signal in the video input individually, applying its brightness value directly in rendering the video. Moreover, it is able to process a full 10 bits of color data for far greater color precision and a more vivid picture quality.

Easy installation
With the equipped joystick the W500 effortlessly positions the image by shifting the lens with the joystick controller. The projector is equipped with powerful preset modes, including cinema mode for feature films and dynamic mode for brightly lit environments. Furthermore, three re-namable user modes are also available for AV enthusiasts to explore settings that best suit their needs.
