What You Must Know Before Using an HDR Projector?

Make sure the ambient, the screen, and the content are suitable for the best movie enjoyment

Since the brightness that viewers perceive from an image presented from a projector varies depending on the screen size, the distance between the projector and the screen, environment, and the material of the screen, there are a few things that users should be aware of.

.Creating a completely dark environment is a prerequisite to fully enjoying HDR content

Users should try to watch content in a completely dark environment without ambient light to eliminate the possibility that the image projected may be affected by other light sources, which could reduce perceived image quality. Having any other light source can hinder the accurate performance of light and dark details, which is the goal of having HDR content. The color perceived by the audience may also be misrepresented due to an external light source. If users can watch HDR content in a fully dark environment, they can enjoy a more immersive viewing experience as if they are in a theater. If they use BenQ projectors that support DCI-P3 color gamut, the color will be even richer and more accurate.

.Deciding the distance between the projector and screen and choosing the screen type: adjustments for the best viewing effect

Screen size also affects the brightness of projection. With the same projector, the smaller the screen, the brighter the image and vice versa. A screen with a higher gain value (an index measuring how reflective a screen is) will brighten the projected image, while a screen with a lower gain value will darken the dim areas, showing more black details and tonal changes.

BenQ HDR-PRO projectors are also equipped with a zoomable lens, ideal for use in various spaces. Without changing too much of the interior decoration, users can enjoy the best audiovisual experience. Before installation, we recommend you use the BenQ Projection Calculator measuring tool for the best placement.

.All equally important: HDR projector, HDR player, and HDR content

To fully enjoy watching HDR content with 4K projectors, prepare a 4K HDR player and 4K HDR-authored content. When choosing the content, we recommend videos with higher brightness, more contrast, and more saturated colors, which show the full potential of HDR content.

HDR content needs a true HDR projector to really shine

Today, all major projector manufacturers are developing HDR devices. With its excellent tech team, BenQ is dedicated to providing the most authentic image in terms of brightness, contrast, and color rendition. BenQ helps consumers enjoy an amazing viewing experience at home or anywhere else, one that is closer to the quality of a movie theater than ever.
