Breathtaking Motion Picture Quality

THX Certification Guarantees Pure Cinematic Performance

Reserved only for best-in-class audio and video systems, THX
Certification guarantees equipment for accurate reproduction of content
as the director originally intended. To earn this prestigious and
exclusive distinction, BenQ engineers pursued over 18 months of rigorous
development comprising 200 THX laboratory tests covering over 500 data
points. Their crowning achievement is the W8000 which delivers Rec.709
color accuracy, precise gamma, ideal color temperature, enhanced
uniformity, super high native contrast ratio, and THX Mode,
pre-calibrated by THX engineers for the most accurate out-of-the-box
picture quality possible, to recreate every single detail of the
authentic content and image quality filmmakers wanted you to see.

Rec. 709 HDTV Standard for the Finest Cinematic Color Authentic HDTV Color Accuracy

Rec. 709 is the international HDTV standard to guarantee accurate replica of cinematic color as the director intended.

With 6X Speed RGBRGB Color Wheel, W8000 is calibrated for cinematic
color modeled on the HDTV standard, Rec. 709, to deliver refined colors
that are the truest possible reproduction of the original palette of
your video.

How Our Projectors Are Designed for Rec. 709

Only displays that conform to Rec. 709 can reproduce colors correctly
in all images through an entire movie. While most projector
manufacturers choose a saturated color tone bias to increase
colorfulness, resulting in color accuracy loss, W8000 achieves the Rec.
709 color standard. The process of building a projector includes many
variables such as lenses, lamps and color wheel coating. We work
relentlessly to close any gaps from those variances and to make our
projectors perform exactly to Rec. 709. This is because we believe that
colors matter to our users when enjoying movies as they were meant to be

Hardware Design

BenQ’s ISF-trained expert engineers tried more than 20 different
combinations of color segments and color wheel coating, the factors that
directly affect color gamut and brightness of a projector.

Software Optimization

To maximize color accuracy, the process of software optimization
involved adjusting the blacks, whites and greys towards D65 defined by
Rec. 709. And the three primary and three secondary colors were adjusted
one by one, until they were as close as possible to the references on
the Rec. 709 color gamut.

Production Line Quality Control

Three color adjustment stations in the production line perform final
checks on every single unit of our Rec. 709 projectors. Using exclusive
BenQ color adjustment procedures, we make sure each projector is
manufactured according to the Rec. 709 color standard, and BenQ quality
engineers perform final color tests on each projector built to ensure
Rec. 709 performance.

Spectacular Full HD 1080p Visual Performance

Treat your eyes the brilliance of a Full HD 1080p optimized optical
system, enhanced by the Texas Instruments Darkchip™3 to produce superb
picture quality and contrast ratio. Enjoy HD content with the finest
clarity and sharpness – from Blu-ray and video games to live broadcasts.

Unmatched Image Performance & Viewing Quality

High Native Contrast for the Finest Details

Generating industry-leading levels of contrast ratio performance,
W8000 produces deep, true blacks for a truly awe-inspiring visual
experience. In addition to the outstanding black level, W8000’s high
native contrast clearly resolves subtle layers and fine details in dark

Furthermore, BenQ takes extra countermeasures to guard against the
small possibility of stray light leakage from the light tunnel affecting
contrast and obscuring fine details, a special black paint seals the
W8000 light engine to boost contrast and render even the slightest
details in the darkest scenes.

Class-Leading High Fill Factor

Featuring class-leading high fill factor, the W8000 shines more light
into each pixel, improving definition for small text and fine details,
and eliminating “screen door effect”, for beautifully rendered images.

BenQ SmartEco™

An ingenious solution that intensifies your viewing pleasure while
saving energy, SmartEco™ automatically adjusts lamp brightness based on
content to project richer blacks and increase contrast for tiny text and
subtle details.

Flawless All-Glass Optics for the Best Viewing Quality

The BenQ Full HD 1080p optical system uses only the highest grade
glass for superior light penetration and realistic image quality.
Proprietary low-dispersion lens coatings minimize chromatic aberration,
so you can enjoy your favorite HD content in brilliant clarity.

State-of-the-Art Image Uniformity via TIR

BenQ’s pioneering Total Inner Reflection (TIR) optical system
utilizes multiple prisms forming precise beam angles, dispersing light
to reflect more uniformly from the Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) and
register beautifully even color, brightness, and fidelity across the
entire projected image. The result is pristine image quality without
blemish across the entire big screen, with nothing to distract the
audience from flawless cinema enjoyment.

Hollywood Magic in Your Home Cinema


CinemaMaster™ turns any room into a world-class home theater with
video-enhancing technologies sure to please even the most critical movie

Motion Enhancer

Inserting 36 interpolated frames between sequences produces seamless,
vivid 60 frame-per-second videos. You’ll be the action hero of your own
theater, crushing the evils of laggy images, jittery playback and
blurry shadows.

Color Enhancer

Color Enhancer modulates complex color algorithms to flawlessly
render saturated colors, fine gradients, intermediate hues and subtle

Pixel Enhancer

Pixel Enhancer is a motion-adaptive edge enhancement feature that
detects changes in color between an object and its background to produce
sharp edges and precise surface textures.

Flesh Tone

The Flesh Tone feature prevents discoloration of skin tones from the
light of the projection beam, portraying every skin tone in its most
beautiful shade.

Digital Color Transient Improvement (DCTI) & Digital Luminance Transient Improvement (DLTI)

Sophisticated algorithms significantly improve color and light output
when producing images with contrasting colors or bright and dark
scales. DCTI heightens color vibrancy for drastic color transitions
without noise interference. DLTI reduces noise from fast switching of
varied luminances to optimized brightness and contrast. The result is
picture quality with the utmost picture depth and color performance.

Independent 3D Color Control for All 6 Primary Colors

BenQ’s unique color management tool allows you to fine-tune the gain,
saturation and hue of six primary colors (R/G/B/C/M/Y) individually.
Now you can customize your colors to mimic nature, to simulate other
galaxies, and to everything in between.
