BenQ today announced two new high-end projectors for the Indian consumers. The W11000 and the X12000 are the first ever DLP 4K enabled projectors that offer a cinema like experience at home. While the W11000 is priced at Rs 3.99 lakhs, the X12000 will be available in Q1 2017 at about Rs 5 lakhs.
Currently the W11000 is available so let’s talk about that. It comes with a 2716×1528 native resolution and can go upto 3840×2160 with XPR technology. According to the company, unlike other projectors, the W11000 offers 8.3 million pixels for a larger and sharper image.
Brightness goes to upto 2200 lumens and the contrast ratio offered is 50,000:1. The aspect ratio is 16:9 although the BenQ spokesperson said it can also offer a 21:9 ratio.
Moving to the ports, you get two HDMI ports (with MHL support), a LAN port, a USB Type mini-B port, PC (D-Sub), RS232 and standard audio in and out. It comes with a fully functional remote control and neat looking knobs on top to adjust the picture. The heatsink fans are placed on the front on either sides of the lens. Even the placement of the ports has been well thought of so that the cables don’t add any hinderance.
The projector itself is quite huge, as big as a CPU cabinet. With that size it won’t be easy to move around. The company says that the product is aimed at people who have a dedicated media room in their homes and want to experience a cinematic experience.
