With THX Certification, Rec. 709 cinematic color fidelity, and ultra-high contrast, W8000 unleashes astounding picture quality for custom home theaters made perfect by CinemaMaster video enhancement and the installation flexibility of H/V lens shift and lens options.
Reserved only for best-in-class AV systems, THX Certification guarantees accurate content reproduction as directors intended. With 100% Rec.709 color accuracy, precise gamma, ideal color temperature, enhanced uniformity, super high native contrast ratio, and pre-calibrated THX Mode, W8000 produces the most accurate out-of-the-box picture quality possible.
To earn this prestigious distinction, BenQ engineers pursued over 18 months of rigorous development comprising 200 THX laboratory tests on 500 data points. Involving 10X as much data analysis and 7X the engineering resources required for Rec. 709 compliance, we achieved supreme overall image performance to pass 3 rounds of live testing at THX headquarters.
CinematicColor™ technology utilizes optimal colors to bring out accurate and enhanced images. CinematicColor’s Rec.709 HDTV color coverage, 6X speed RGBRGB color wheel, high native ANSI contrast ratio and ISFccc certified calibration ensure incredible image performances and deliver detailed, sharp and crisp visuals to accompany your pro cinema enjoyment.
Only True Color Conveys Deep Feelings
Ready to be amazed by BenQ’s CinematicColor™ technology to bring total visual enjoyment to your home theater. Indulge in the most refined colors of truest image production with factory calibrated 100% Rec.709 color coverage. It’s time to turn your living room into a world class cinema.
Of all DLP projector components, the color wheel has the greatest effect on color. Achieving perfect balance between color accuracy and brightness requires high precision and stringent quality control. Because even nanometer differences create great differences to color spectrum, BenQ CinematicColor™ uses precise nanometer-level references to test over 20 combinations of color wheel angle and coating. Each color wheel is carefully fabricated with high-pure-color coatings to meet Rec. 709 color gamut requirements and reproduce the true color of Hollywood films.

With the Imaging Science Foundation’s highly reputed ISFccc® Certified Visual Calibration built-in, the image and color performance can be customized for anyspace, along with preset light balance modes for day and night.
Generating industry-leading levels of high native ANSI contrast ratio performance, W8000 produces clearly deep, true blacks and resolves subtle layers and fine details in dark and bright scenes without washout.
An ingenious solution that intensifies your viewing pleasure while saving money, SmartEco™ automatically adjusts lamp brightness based on content to project richer blacks and increase contrast for tiny text and subtle details.

CinemaMaster™ Video+ turns any room into a world-class home theater with video-enhancing technologies sure to please even the most critical movie enthusiasts.
Pixel Enhancer is a motion-adaptive edge enhancement feature that detects changes in color between an object and its background to produce sharp edges and precise surface textures.
Color Enhancer modulates complex color algorithms to flawlessly render saturated colors, fine gradients, intermediate hues and subtle pigments.
The Flesh Tone feature prevents discoloration of skin tones from the light of the projection beam, portraying every skin tone in its most beautiful shade.

Sophisticated DCTI and DLTI algorithms improve color and light output for superb picture depth and color performance. Digital Color Transient Improvement (DCTI) enhances drastic color transitions without noise interference, and Digital Luminance Transient Improvement(DLTI) reduces noise from fast luminance switching for optimal brightness and contrast.
BenQ’s unique color management tool allows you to fine-tune the gain, saturation and hue of six primary colors (R/G/B/C/M/Y) individually. Now you can customize your colors to mimic nature, simulate faraway galaxies, and everything in between.
With H/V Lens Shift, the lens can be shifted vertically or horizontally to fit perfectly into any room or work around small obstacles with a dynamic range of projection locations. Image placement can be adjusted up/down or left/right without sacrificing image quality, resulting in a custom installation in any venue.
Select from 5 optical lenses with different throw distances to custom fit rooms of any size, with Big Zoom to increase mounting and placement options. With both features adding installation flexibility, W8000 integrates equally well into cozy family rooms, middle-sized living rooms, and purpose-built screening rooms to provide the perfect viewing sweet spot.
BenQ Wireless Full HD Kit covers up to 100’* with four powerful antennas for crystal clear streaming, even through walls. Pairing with the projector via one-time setup and staying paired, the wireless kit’s zero latency delivers smooth video and gaming with virtually no lag, and dynamic frequency selection switches channels to ensure crisp, sharp streaming.
