2. Wide Color Gamut is set to “On” in default and gray out status.

* Follow DCI standard for SDR movie, projector provides 110” at 48 nits (14fL) which is typically used in a controlled dark environment like a movie theater.

 

• HDR10/HLG mode (Wide Color Gamut enabled): 

1. Best for watching 4K UHD Blu-ray HDR10 or HLG streaming contents (w/ metadata or EOTF info) by BenQ CinematicColor™ DCI-P3 technology to reproduce 95% DCI-P3 color gamut (WCG set to “On” manually) and higher dynamic contrast in comfortable brightness.

2. Picture mode will be switched to HDR10/HLG mode automatically and can’t be changed to other modes while detecting metadata or EOTF info from HDR10/HLG contents. 

 

• User mode (Wide Color Gamut enabled):

*Based on DCI-P3 color gamut with CinematicColor™ technology, W2700 provides the moderate brightness and that is sufficient in a dark room. Or you can utilize screen gain (1.8~2.0) for 110” projection size to meet HDR standard of 96nits (28fL) formulated by THX.
