Home cinema


BenQ has announced the launch of three new high definition video projectors in the UK. The W10000, W9000 and W500.


The W500 provides a 5,000:1 contrast ratio, features HQV (Hollywood Quality Video), operates at 28dB, and can project 720p content. It also offers upscaling of standard definition content.

Its Multi-Dimensional Diagonal Filtering technology should prevent ghosting, and it has horizontal and vertical lens shifting, and “professional inputs” – presumably / hopefully this includes HDMI.

It retails for £699.

The W9000 is a DarkChip2 DLP system featuring 8,500:1 contrast and able to project full 1080p high definition content, including at 24fps so able to show films at this rate when connected to a compatible disc player.

It also has HQV, operates at 23dB, and features ISF calibration as standard. It’s equipped with an 8-segment colour wheel, 10-bit processing, and a motorised iris.

Priced at £2499.

Priced at £4499.
