How Our Projectors Are Designed for Rec. 709
While most projector manufacturers, to achieve higher colorfulness, choose a tone bias to saturated colors that may result in accuracy loss of colors, every single unit of BenQ HT3050 achieves Rec.709 color. The process of building a projector includes many variables such as lenses, lamps and color wheel coating. We work relentlessly to close any gaps from those variances and to make our projectors perform exactly to Rec. 709. This is because we believe that colors matter to our users when enjoying movies as they were meant to be seen.
- Hardware Design BenQ’s ISF- trained expert engineers tried more than 20 different combinations of color segments and color wheel coating, the factors that directly affect color gamut and brightness of a projector.
- Software Optimization - To maximize color accuracy, the process of software optimization involved adjusting the blacks, whites and greys towards D65 defined by Rec. 709. And the three primary and three secondary colors were adjusted one by one, until they were as close as possible to the references on the Rec. 709 color gamut.
- Production Line Quality Control - BenQ sets up three color adjustment stations in the production line for final check of every single unit of Rec. 709 projectors. Using exclusive BenQ color adjustment procedures, we make sure that each HT3050 accurately produces Rec. 709 performance, and BenQ quality engineers perform final color checks on each projector built to make sure its colors precisely match Rec. 709.
- Crisper, sharper Full HD 1080p - Built with high-grade pure glass elements in its light engine and an all-glass cinema grade projection lens, the HT3050 beams crisper, sharper Full HD 1080p content than any projector in its class.
