BenQ Launches Projector Featuring 10000:1 Contrast ratio

BenQ's new PE8720 home cinema projector takes home cinema projector to a higher level with the world's highest contrast ratio of 10000:1.

The new projector features BenQ's proprietary Advanced Continuous Electronic IRIS and Senseye technology, a quiet 23dB operation, and a customized 6-color setting function.

The featured Senseye technology enables the BenQ PE8720 to deliver clear high definition images with a high contrast ratio of 10000:1. This is made possible by the embedded Advanced Continuous Electronic IRIS and DarkChip3 DMD. The DarkChip3 DMD from Texas Instruments decreases the scattering of light and boosts image contrast for dark scenes.

The BenQ PE8720 operates at a quiet 23dB due to the side-exhaust fans and L-shaped inlet tunnels. BenQ's side-exhaust fans lowers the internal ambient temperature, allowing for efficient cooling, by reducing fan RPM (revolutions per minute). To further reduce projector acoustics, BenQ also adopts two L-shaped inlet tunnels equipped with a sound dampening muffler and anti-vibration material in the Color Wheel holder.

The BenQ PE8720 also makes it easy for users to adjust its settings. At the touch of one button, the BenQ PE8720's intelligently adjusts color, lighting settings and Advanced Electronic IRIS for frequently-used home applications. In addition, the BenQ PE8720 also features a customized 6-Color Setting function which offer users a direct, independent six-color adjustment of primary (RGB) and secondary (CMY) colors.

The BenQ PE8720 is currently available on the market for less than US $8,000.
