Las Vegas, NV (Jan 6, 2005) - BenQ today announced plans to showcase its DLP®-based PB7000 Series of digital projectors (models PB7110, PB7210 and PB7230) that feature a new 5-segment color wheel and eight custom Preset Mode functions, which offer unmatched color reproduction and adjustable mode settings for switching between a variety of applications.
In a DLP® Projector, the most important optical component in controlling color reproduction is the color wheel, which rotates the three primary colors -- red, green and blue -- in front of a mirror in the projector housing to project color into a displayed image. Most DLP-based projectors contain a fourth “white” color-wheel segment to add brightness to an image. The PB7000 Series projector line features a unique fifth “yellow” color segment added into each model’s color wheel, offering better color reproduction in the yellow range, as well as smoother, more pleasing image quality. With brighter yellows, the projector’s color balance is enhanced, which creates more visually appealing images during presentations.
The PB7110, PB7210 and PB7230 models also feature Preset Modes that enable consumers to manually select between eight custom modes that switch each projector’s settings to fit varying presentation environments. Though the PB7000 series is ideal for business presentation settings, the Preset Modes function enables users to select a mode that maximizes the performance of the projectors in both business and home theater applications.
As examples, the Preset Modes include “Cinema Mode,” which optimizes projection settings to accommodate home theater applications, and “Economic Mode,” which adjusts power levels to help save lamp life. In addition, the new models are compatible with the most popular video signals, including HDTV, NTSC and SECAM, and feature PC-RGB analog D-Sub, DVI, S-Video, Composite video and audio, and RS232 inputs.
