ht1075_regular_0914BenQ America today introduced its next-generation Colorific home entertainment projectors: the HT1075 and HT1085ST. Featuring BenQ’s Colorific image quality, the HT1075 and HT1085ST are both full HD 1920 x1080p resolution and include 3D support, but the short-throw HT1085ST allows users to fill screens measuring up to 100 inches by simply setting up the device at only 6 feet away. Both are spec’d for 2,200 ANSI lumens of brightness and a 10,000:1 contrast ratio, and are also ISFccc-certified by the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF).

One feature unique to the HT1075 is it’s vertical lens shift  that allows users to align the projected image to the center of the screen. Of course, both models offer horizontal and vertical keystone correction, are equipped with BenQ’s SmartEco lamp-saving technology to prolong lamp life up to an amazing 6,000 hours and nclude a filter-free design.

A new optional wireless connectivity kit will be sold separately and is planned for release in Q4 2014. The fully wireless system will allow users to send content to the projectors from up to 100 feet away, giving homeowners the freedom to move the projectors throughout the house or even take them outdoors without the need to run cable.

Available in September 2014, BenQ’s all-new HT1075 and HT1085ST (not on the website yet) projectors retail at $1,199 and $1,299 respectively. Here are all the specs.
