benq-top_w1080st-0313BenQ is now shipping its W1080ST short-throw full HD 3D home projector, which delivers 1080p resolution on a 100″ screen from just six feet away. The 1-chip DLP projector incorporates NVIDIA 3DTV Play, DLP Link and dual HDMI. Designed with the high-end DLP Dark Chip 3 (DC3), the W1080ST is spec’d at 10,000:1 contrast ratio, and has built-in 10-watt stereo speakers.

To safeguard close-range installations, the W1080ST also features an “Auto Blank” mode that blocks light output when objects are detected in front of the lens. Especially useful for coffee-table setups and other short-throw scenarios in small spaces, the mode avoids flashing light directly in users’ eyes when crossing the projection.
