BenQ America today introduced a new flagship home cinema projector: the HT9050. The native 3840×2160 4K UHD projector uses the Philips ColorSpark HLD LEDs and BenQ has integrated their CinematicColor technology to enable the projector to produce the DCI-P3 color space. Defined by the digital film industry, the DCI-P3 color gamut encompasses a significantly larger portion of the visible color spectrum, proving far more colors than Rec. 709 and sRGB.
The Philips ColorSpark HLD LED technology combines green light four times as bright as conventional green LEDs from its high-lumen-density phosphor module with high-brightness red and blue LEDs. With a 20,000-hour, mercury-free and maintenance-free lamp life (and instant on/off response), the HT9050 is spec’d at 50,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and is spec’d at 2200 ANSI lumens.
BenQ’s CinemaMaster image processing technology is ISFccc certified and the HT9050 natively supports 2.35:1 anamorphic aspect ratio. Inputs include two HDMI ports (HDMI 1: HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2; HDMI 2: HDMI 1.4a and HDCP 1.4), one VGA port and both IR and serial control.
