BenQ enriches the increasingly rich market of ultra-short throw projectors (the announcement of Samsung The Premiere is these days) with the V6000 and V6050 models. The only difference between the two is the coloring: V6000 is Ice Gray while V6050 is Matte Black. The technology used is DLP with a single 0.47 "DMD (DLP470TE). This chip, now very popular, is equipped with 1920 x 1080 micro-mirrors and uses XPR (eXpanded Pixel Resolution) technology to bring the resolution to Ultra HD, displaying four pixels for each micro mirror.
The light source is laser with phosphors to which an RGBY color wheel is added. V6000 / V6050 guarantees a flow of 3,000 ANSI lumens and an estimated life of approximately 20,000 hours. The lens has a shooting ratio of 0.252: 1; on the rear side there is a system with two extractable arms that act as tools to measure the distance needed to fill the various screen sizes that you intend to combine with the projector. It ranges from a minimum of 70 "up to 120". The two supports also allow you to correctly align the product to the wall.
On the upper part there is a motorized lid that opens automatically when switched on and which for the rest of the time serves to conceal the optics and to prevent dust from accumulating over time. The Eye Protection Motion Sensor turns off the Laser as soon as the presence of movement is detected, in order to prevent the light from accidentally ending up in the eyes of people who get too close.
BenQ claims 98% coverage for DCI-P3 color space and HDR support in HDR10 and HLG formats. Ultra HD resolution upscaling is managed through the 4K Pixel Enhancer while motion processing is entrusted to the 4K Motion Enhancer. The noise varies according to the mode chosen (and therefore the brightness) and increases if the XPR function is active. BenQ reports a figure of 34/29 dBA (normal brightness / Eco with XPR off) or 37/32 dBA (with XPR on). 3D is also supported through the appropriate optional glasses.
V6000 / V6050 integrates a treVolo audio system hidden behind the front grille. The transducers generate a total power of 10 W x 2 channels. Available connections include two HDMI 2.0b inputs with HDCP 2.2 (one has ARC), two USB 2.0 ports and one 3.0 port (two are on the side and one at the back), an optical digital audio output and an RS232 port.
Steve Chu, President of BenQ Europe, said:
The V6000 / V6050 projector brings cinema to our customers' homes by offering 120-inch cinematic and immersive scenarios. "The stunning 4K images, HDR color accuracy and high brightness, combined with ultra short throw projection and premium design, make it perfect to complement an elegant living space.
V6000 and V6050 will be available from November at a price of 3,999 euros.
