BenQ’s HT6050 Becomes First Single-Chip Home Theater Projector to Earn THX HD Display Certification

benq_ht6050-0916BenQ America today announced that the HT6050 home theater projector has achieved the THX HD Display certification. The first single-chip projector to achieve certification, the Colorific HT6050 delivers Rec. 709 color fidelity. BenQ says that getting the HT6050 is the result of over 18 months of engineering development comprising 200 THX laboratory tests of more than 500 data points to ensure that the projector meets the certification’s Rec. 709 color accuracy, precise gamma, ideal color temperature, enhanced uniformity and super high native contrast ratio requirements. Originally developed by Lucasfilm engineers to distinguish only best-in-class audio and video systems, THX certification ensures that the device can precisely deliver content as the director originally intended. THX engineers also pre-calibrated the HT6050’s THX Mode, enabling distribution of the most accurate out-of-the-box picture quality possible.

The HT6050 is also ISFccc-certified by the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF), providing two custom-calibrated modes, ISF Day and ISF Night, to give integrators additional customization options. Along with MHL connectivity for streaming content from smart devices, the HT6050 offers an optional full HD wireless kit, which is the perfect add-on to stream uncompressed 1080p content from a central location to the projector.
