BenQ unveils projectors featuring 'one billion colours'
Projector manufacturer BenQ has announced the launch of two Colorific projectors designed to enhance the home cinema experience by combining 3D technology with the realism of over one billion colours.

Embracing an increasing emphasis on cinema-quality colour reproduction, both the TH670 and MH741 Colorific projectors provide film fans with a sharp 1080p picture quality while offering richer colour saturation and accuracy than previous BenQ offerings.

According to BenQ, the new Colorific line up is ideal for home entertainment use, offering improved out-of-the-box precision in a variety of environments and shifting the focus of image quality technology back to colour accuracy rather than brightness.

Competing manufacturers have also launched projectors focused on accurate colour replication, including Epson's EH-TW9200W. Epson's Full HD flagship model features the manufacturer's 3LCD panels, providing a Colour Light Output of 2,400 lumens and enabling home cinema enthusiasts to enjoy the latest films with bright and accurate colours. According to Epson, this technology offers images that are up to 3 times brighter than competing home cinema projectors, delivering "consistently true-to-life" colours.

The EH TW9200W projector also includes the technology to advance the colours of standard definition content via mixed colour separation techniques, which independently sharpens and boost the quality of each frame.

The VPL-VW320ES projector from Sony has also followed suit, creating a 4K resolution home cinema projector that offers "eye-popping colours" and 1,500 lumens of brightness. Unlike competing manufacturers, Sony provides projector buyers with its own TRILUMINOS Display technology, which accurately reproduces a wider range of colours than any standard projector system.

According to Sony, this exclusive technology provides more natural looking images, as well as greater colour purity and realism that can enhance the look of even the latest blockbusters. In fact, the VPL-VW320ES is also compatible with Mastered in 4K Blu-ray discs, which provide the most impressive home cinema images possible.
