When you shell out the cash for a projector, you typically don’t want something that’s seen as “standard.” Well now, BenQ is making standard a selling point.
The company just introduced the HC1200, a new DLP projector that’s purpose-built to follow the sRGB (standard Red, Green, Blue) industry color standard. In case you didn’t know, sRGB is the guideline for color accuracy that’s used on smartphones, monitors, cameras and printers, and pretty much everywhere on the web.
The sRGB standard means that this projector can deliver color accurately — and it promises to do that pretty much right out of the box.
It also boasts twice as much ANSI contrast than the typical LCD projector, which means clearer images and finer details. Other features include 1.5x zoom capabilities, 2D keystone correction, and an embedded test pattern for a more concise calibration process. It even has RJ-45 (LAN) and RS-232 options, two HDMI, USB, and dual D-sub computer connections, as well as mini-jack audio in/out, RCA audio-in, S-Video, and composite video inputs.
“The HC1200 was specially designed to deliver superior Colorific image quality and far better ANSI contrast than any other projector in its class,” said Bob Wudeck, associate VP of Strategy and Business Development at BenQ America Corp. “Perfect for conference rooms and home theaters, this projector was preferred 7 to 1 in a recent test where people found the HC1200 sRGB colors more accurate than top-selling 4,000 lumen projector models.”
BenQ is selling the HC1200 projector now, with an MSRP of $1,399.
