6X RGBRGB Colour Wheel Delivers Rec. 709 HDTV Standard for Cinematic Colour
Users now can have lifelike cinematic Colour with Rec. 709, and enjoy big screen entertainment with BenQ Home Video Projectors. Rec. 709 is the international HDTV standard introduced in the 1990s to guarantee accurate reproduction of cinematic colour as the film director had intended. Only displays that conform to Rec. 709 can reproduce the original quality and authentic colour of HD content. That level of quality is now available in home projection with the release of BenQ’s W2000 Home Video Projector, which is precisely calibrated utilizing a 6-times speed RGBRGB colour wheel with finely tuned coating and colour segments to replicate stunning true colours for a superb viewing experience.
In order to build a colour wheel that produces Rec. 709 colours, BenQ took extra effort in the hardware design for colour wheel angle and coating, software optimization for colour fine-tuning and also production line quality control to make sure that W2000 delivers the perfect Rec. 709 performance.
With BenQ Cinematic Colour, you can now see the colours that film directors want you to see and enjoy consistent image performance for the entire movie.
