  • Why is BenQ Home Projector’s 4K a True 4K?
  • According to CTA (Consumers Technology Association), 4K UHD must fulfill the criteria of delivering 8.3 million pixels on the screen. By harnessing the most advanced DLP .47” DMD, TK850 utilizes millions of micromirrors, and the fast switching speed as well as the advanced image processing capability of the DLP 4K UHD chipset to achieve CTA’s 4K UHD specification (8.3 million distinct pixels for each frame), four times the resolution of Full HD 1080p.
  • What is DLP 4K UHD Technology?
  • DLP 4K UHD Technology is Texas Instruments’ pixel-shifting technology. It’s to achieve True 4K 8.3 million pixels regardless of the number of native pixels the DMD Chip has. It can not only double 2716 x 1528 pixels (.66” DMD), but also perfectly quadruple 1920 x 1080 pixels (.47” DMD) to make True 4K 8.3 million pixels at a lightning pixel-shifting speed.
  • What makes BenQ Home Projector's True 4K outperform 3LCD 4K-Enhancement?
  • TK850 delivers True 4K UHD with 8.3 million distinct pixels, as opposed to 3LCD competitors’ 4K Enhancement producing simply around 4.1 million pixels, and this difference makes the picture quality of TK850 more appealing to enthusiastic movie lovers or big-screen cinematic experience seekers.
  • Native 4K vs DLP 4K UHD Technology
  • Native 4K is an approach widely believed to be delivering the incomparably stable and clearest images, while DLP 4K UHD Technology is being thought to be more affordable but also more likely to cause blurring and artifacts to the images; for some that hold this arguments might make the comparison between 1080p and 1080i as a plausible analogy, arguing the DLP 4K UHD Technology might produce “Interlacing Effects”, making artifacts of motions visible to audiences’ eyes. However, it shows only when displaying complex graphics or textual presentations. That means it’s hard to notice the difference in the quality of video output by a pixel shifting 1080p projector and a native 4K projector when playing motion movies. Therefore, DLP 4K UHD Technology projectors are best recommended for those who want to buy the most affordable 4K projectors primarily for enjoying movies at home.
  • Does W2700/TK850 throw a lighting frame around the actual image like the W1700/TK800?
  • Since new projectors launched in 2019, including W2700/TK850, contain the new version 4K 0.47-inch chipset from Texas Instruments, they do not have the light frame effect that previous models of TI 4K-enabled chips had.
  • Among the New BenQ 4K Home Projector Family launched in 2019, which one is for me?
  • For movie lovers, BenQ CinePrime W2700/W5700 reproduces cinematic color with up to 100% DCI-P3 wide color gamut, perfect for an immersive movie-viewing experience in dark AV rooms. The delicate and detailed color performance is also the movie lovers’ favorite. On the other hand, if the viewing environment is rather brighter with ambient light, then Home Entertainment with balanced higher brightness and Rec.709 color gamut can work brilliantly, that will be your choice. For sports enthusiasts, TK850 is the premium choice with enhanced HDR tone mapping by HDR-PRO technology and 98% Rec709 exclusive audiovisual modes bring sports games or other streaming contents to a new level from TK800(M). For binge watchers, TK810 is the entry 92% Rec709 with higher brightness equipped with Android/wireless based, allowing users the hassle-free access to watch streaming contents without extra TV box.
  • Can I use TK850 to play game?
  • Yes, TK850 is compatible with the latest 4K console platforms. However, for those hardcore gamers who pursue low latency, TK850 isn’t their first choice to get the best and smooth playing experience, because current 4K UHD technology limits the input lag performance on most 4K DLP projector. Instead, BenQ Full-HD Home projectors (https://www.benq.com/en/projector/home-series.html) offers low input lag within 1 frame, satisfying such gaming demand.

  • Which connectivity of TK850 supports HDR10/HLG?
  • TK850 will automatically detect HDR10/HLG and display compatible signals by connecting image source to HDMI-1 or HDMI-2 (HDMI 2.0b/HDCP2.2). Besides, USB-A 3.0 (Media Reader) also supports HDR10. Note: To automatically detect HDR content, please make sure your 4K player is sending a compatible 4K HDR signal to the projector.
  • What type of 4K HDR singal is compatible with TK850?
  • To automatically detect HDR content, please make sure your 4K player is sending a compatible 4K HDR signal to the projector.
