Offering the experience of attending a commercial digital cinema, BenQ DLP 4K UHD Pro Cinema Projectors create cinematic color and contrast quality with over 8.3 million razor-sharp pixels free from panel-related artifacts.
HT8050 utilizes DLP 4K UHD DMD’s 4.15 million micromirrors and dual-position actuator fast switching and to achieve CTA’s 4K UHD specification, reaching 3840x2160 resolution with 8.3 million distinct pixels for each frame. With four times resolution of Full HD 1080p, 4K UHD reduces pixel blur for awe-inspiring clarity and crisply defined fine details.
DLP 4K UHD Projector with 8.3 Million Pixels
Non-DLP 4K UHD Projector
With single DMD DLP technology to avoid inherent alignment issues of multiple panels, HT8050 presents image integrity and accurate color, especially with ultrafine 4K pixels much smaller than 1080p pixels. HT8050 generates razor-sharp images and accurate colors devoid of artifacting such as blur, shadowing, and interference patterns for immaculate clarity.

Super-high resolution 14-element lens array is structured into six groups with metal barrel and cell framework, far outshining 1080p projector technology with greater light penetration for long-lasting 4K intensity with heart-stopping color performance, clarity, and sharpness across the entire screen.
HT8050’s True Zoom system adjusts automatically to follow focus adjustments, optimizing the zoom ratio to deliver visually perfect focus without blemish. The three focusing lens groups adjust simultaneously with the zoom lens group to negate any curved field for immaculate cinematic performance and high-precision clarity at every corner of the image.
The BenQ 4K optical system uses only the highest grade glass for superior light penetration and realistic image quality. Proprietary low-dispersion lens coatings minimize chromatic aberration, so you can enjoy your favorite 4K UHD content in brilliant clarity.

To earn this prestigious distinction, BenQ engineers pursued over 18 months of rigorous development comprising 200 THX laboratory tests on 500 data points. Involving 10X as much data analysis and 7X the engineering resources required for Rec. 709 compliance, we achieved supreme overall image performance to pass 3 rounds of live testing at THX headquarters.
CinematicColor™ technology utilizes optimal colors to bring out accurate and enhanced images. CinematicColor’s Rec.709 HDTV color coverage, RGBRGB color wheel, high native ANSI contrast ratio and ISFccc certified calibration ensure incredible image performances and deliver detailed, sharp and crisp visuals to accompany your pro cinema enjoyment.
Only True Color Conveys Deep Feelings
Ready to be amazed by BenQ’s CinematicColor™ technology to bring total visual enjoyment to your home theater. Indulge in the most refined colors of truest image production with factory calibrated 100% Rec.709 color coverage. It’s time to turn your living room into a world class cinema.
Of all DLP projector components, the color wheel has the greatest effect on color. Achieving perfect balance between color accuracy and brightness requires high precision and stringent quality control. Because even nanometer differences create great differences to color spectrum, BenQ CinematicColor™ uses precise nanometer-level references to test over 20 combinations of color wheel angle and coating. Each color wheel is carefully fabricated with high-pure-color coatings to meet Rec. 709 color gamut requirements and reproduce the true color of Hollywood films.
BenQ Rec. 709
Using special instruments and software, each CinematicColor™ projector is tested and adjusted for precise D65 color temperature, gamma, black level, white level, neutral gray, RGBCMY color tracking, hue, saturation, brightness and output from different interfaces based on ITU-R Rec. 709. Collecting all data for individual CinematicColor™ factory calibration reports, we are the industry’s only brand to adopt such high standards of color gamut and gamma calibration to exceed Rec.709 standards.
*Factory calibration reports included with CinePro and CinePrime series, except HT9050, HT6050, HT4050
Production Line Quality Control
With the Imaging Science Foundation’s highly reputed ISFccc® Certified Visual Calibration built-in, the image and color performance can be customized for anyspace, along with preset light balance modes for day and night.
Generating industry-leading levels of high native ANSI contrast ratio performance, HT8050 produces clearly deep, true blacks and resolves subtle layers and fine details in dark and bright scenes without washout.
Active iris controls the amount of light through the optical system for ideal contrast. Dynamic Black™ analyzes scene brightness levels to optimize light output and contrast. Bringing out subtle details in shadows and preventing bright scenes from washout, HT8050 delivers impressive contrast for true blacks and amazing picture depth, details, and clarity.
CinemaMaster™ Video+ turns any room into a world-class home theater with video-enhancing technologies sure to please even the most critical movie enthusiasts.
4K Pixel Enhancer is a motion-adaptive edge enhancement feature that detects changes in color between an object and its background to produce sharp edges and precise surface textures.
Color Enhancer modulates complex color algorithms to flawlessly render saturated colors, fine gradients, intermediate hues and subtle pigments.
The Flesh Tone feature prevents discoloration of skin tones from the light of the projection beam, portraying every skin tone in its most beautiful shade.
