Today, BenQ introduced the W1700 4K HDR Home Cinema Projector with style by giving us a short taste of a 4K movie and short beautiful sequences made to show off its 4K and colour reproduction capabilities, like the ones you see on TV showfloors.
Firstly, the W1700 is a projector that is made for home. With it you can watch films, videos and shows in 4K Ultra HD format in the comfort of your home, while wearing your onesie and sipping on hot chocolate. Mr. Conway Lee, President and Chief Executive Officer of BenQ Corporation said: “We are excited to be able to introduce BenQ’s state-of-the-art home cinema projector. The new W1700 brings home the magic of big-screen 4K digital cinema to a broader audience, at a very affordable price.”
The W1700 is capable of producing 4K Ultra HD 3840×2160 resolution with 8.3 million distinct pixels and uses a 0.47-inch single-DMD DLP technology to keep the projector lightweight and sleek. It only weighs 4.2 kgs, allowing you to easily transport the projector to different rooms without needing any special tools to transport the projector. It is also equipped with BenQ CinematicColor Technology, which delivers Rec.709 HDTV colour accuracy. The W1700 can reproduce images immaculately with precise colour accuracy, just as how the director intends it to be.
It also has the CinemaMaster Video+ and CinemaMaster Audio+2 features, which will help give you mind-blowing viewing experience. In addition, there is the Pixel Enhancer that automatically detects the changes in colour between objects and its background to produce sharp edges, as well as Colour Enhancer to modulate saturated colours, fine gradients and Flesh Tone to prevent the discolouration of skin tones. With the auto keystone correction and 1.2x zoom, you can also place the W1700 almost anywhere in the room. You can also connect a HDMI dongle to the projector to instantly stream with it using Google Chromecast or Amazon Fire TV Stick.
According to BenQ, the CineHome W1700 4K UHD HDR Home Cinema Projector will be available to purchase come January 2018 and is priced at RM7,999. Representatives from BenQ has also mentioned that the projector will arrive before Chinese New Year, so if you want to gift someone the gift of 4K movie and video goodness, then this is the projector that you should buy.
