Apartment dwellers need home theater too. For those smaller spaces, BenQ has just announced the W1100 (pictured) and W1200 cinema projectors.
Built around Texas Instruments’ DLP technology, each projector can deliver a full 1080p image, boasting bright images and high contrast ratios.
The W1100 features a 12-lens optical system, brightness of 2,000 ANSI lumens, a 4500:1 contrast ratio, and a 10-bit color processor. Other features include built-in SRS WOW HD sound technology and two 10-watt speakers, for sound right out of the box. (Of course, you can add on to that too!)
Like the W1100, the W1200 has a 1080p image and 10-bit color processor, but changes the brightness to 1800 ANSI lumens and the contrast ratio to 5000:1. Other W1200 highlights include Advanced Color Wheel Coating and Video Frame Interpolation technology, as well as ISFccc certification.
Another difference is the price. The W110 is listed at $1,499, with the W1200 coming in at $1,999. Both projectors are available now.
