Q&A
  • Q1. What’s the most important thing to do before beginning gaming projector setup?
  • Step 1. Make sure you’re in a light-controlled environment

    Step 2. Plug an HDMI 2.0 cable to the projector and start a game

    Step 3. Enable HDR on your PS5 or Xbox Series console, and calibrate HDR properties using tools available in console settings

    Step 4. Check that the picture mode when running a game supports HDR, then start customizing display settings

  • Q2. Where can I find PS5 and Xbox Series HDR settings?
  • Xbox Series: Go to Settings > General > TV & display options > Calibrate HDR for Games

    •PS5:  Go to Settings > Screen and Video > Video Output > Adjust HDR

  • Q3. Where can I find color settings in the projector’s OSD?
  • •Open Advanced Menu and select the Picture submenu

    •Adjust Game Mode, Details Adjustment, Fast mode in the Game Maestro/Game mode menu

    •Then, adjust Brightness and Contrast in the Picture submenu

    •Finally, find Wide Color Gamut, HDR Brightness or Color Management, Color Temperature in Advanced Color Settings.  

  • Q4. What are the best ambient conditions for these game settings?
  • •Overall light: dark room is best

    •Screen gain: 1.0

    •Screen size: 100”

  • Q5. BenQ color settings are tuned for 100” screen size with a gain of 1.0. What if my screen has different size or gain?
  • •If you have a screen larger than 100” or gain lower than 1.0, please tune HDR brightness up. If it is not enough, then increase overall brightness.
