BenQ Unveils Its Highest Contrast Ratio Home Cinema Projector

BenQ today unveiled the new PE8720 home cinema projector with the contrast ratio of 10000:1. The new projector features BenQ’s proprietary Advanced Continuous Electronic IRIS and Senseye technology, 23dB noise level, a convenient one-touch button for the best setting in any occasion and a customized 6-color setting function.

The featured Senseye technology enables the BenQ PE8720 to deliver image with a contrast ratio of 10000:1. This is made possible by the embedded Advanced Continuous Electronic IRIS and DarkChip3 DMD. The BenQ proprietary Advanced Continuous Electronic IRIS also optimizes light intensity for bright and dark scenes. The DarkChip3 DMD from Texas Instruments decreases the scattering of light and boosts image contrast for better dark scenes.

The BenQ PE8720 operates at 23dB due to side-exhaust fans and L-shaped inlet tunnels. BenQ's patented side-exhaust fans lowers the internal ambient temperature, allowing for efficient cooling, by reducing fan RPM. To further reduce projector acoustics, BenQ also adopts two L-shaped inlet tunnels equipped with a sound dampening muffler and anti-vibration material in the Color Wheel holder.

Apart from the image quality, the BenQ PE8720 makes it easier for users to adjust its settings. At the touch of one button, the BenQ PE8720’s adjusts color, lighting settings and Advanced Electronic IRIS for frequently-used home applications. In addition, the BenQ PE8720 also features a customized 6-Color Setting function which offers users a direct, independent six-color adjustment of primary (RGB) and secondary (CMY) colors. This convenient function enables the user to change color preferences without affecting the original color settings of other colors preferences.

The BenQ PE8720 is currently available on the market.
