BenQ used the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this month as the launch pad for the W7000, their fist full HD 3D home cinema projector.

The model is the first by the company to gain the Full HD 3D Certification issued by the European certification institute, TÜVRheinland. The W7000 is capable of displaying 1080p 3D images to both of the viewer’s eyes, while eliminating the distraction of crosstalk.

The projector has brightness of 2,000 ANSI lumens and a 50,000:1 contrast ratio with a dynamic iris. It is equipped with BrilliantColor performance and VIDI lighting technology, and can support all HDMI 1.4a 3D signal formats.

Speaking at its launch, Lars Yoder, president of BenQ America Corp, said that the W7000 is the start of a major new technological chapter for the brand.

“What really sets the projector apart from the pack is that it delivers what we call the ‘real 3D home cinema experience’,” he explained. “The W7000 allows consumers to enjoy 3D content with full HD resolution in both eyes. There is no crosstalk or additional emitters and transmission devices required; just fully immersive 3D enjoyment.”

The projector has a 1.5:1 zoom range and 1.62 to 2.43 throw ratio and is compliant to the native Rec. 709 colour gamut – one of the highest HD video standards for professional-grade home projectors.
