BenQ outs W6000, W1000, W600 DLP home theater projectors
Prolific home theater manufacturer BenQ has announced will begin shipping three new home theater projectors in the next few weeks. All powered by DLP front projection chips from Texas Instruments, the W600, W1000, and W6000 all appeal to the home theater buff looking for high-quality gear at a reasonable price.
The entry-level W600 can reproduce 720p video, has a 3000:1 contrast ratio, and 2000 ANSI lumens of brightness. The unit also has a 6-segment color wheel, dual HDMI inputs and a $794 price tag when it ships on November 1.
The mid-range W1000 ups the video reproduction resolution to 1080p, but dumbs down the brightness and contrast ratio to 1800 ANSI lumens and 2700:1, respectively. It has the same dual HDMI inputs, but a few more analog outputs than the W600. It is also scheduled to ship on November 1, priced at $1590.
Finally, the most feature-packed of the trio, the W6000, features 1080p video resolution reproduction, 24 fps support, 50000:1 contrast ratio, 2500 ANSI lumens of brightness, horizontal and vertical lens shift, 1.5:1 zoom ratio, 2.35:1 aspect ratio via an optional Panamorph lens, 10 bit processing, and video upconversion from 480p. Shipping in the next few weeks, the BenQ W6000 is slated to cost $3970.
