BenQ W1500 DLP Projector

W1500 integrates the latest technology for one of a kind, big screen, at home entertainment enjoyment. As the world’s first home projector with built in wireless feature, enjoy Full HD 3D video, frame interpolation for ultra-smooth motion quality, brilliant color performance and the flexibility of placing the projector in any room, regardless of size and brightness!

W1500 is able to project uncompressed FHD image from HDMI output devices (e.g. Blu-ray, DVD or AV-R player, set top boxes, games consoles) without the hassle of HDMI cables and unnecessary expenses such as wall/ceiling mount.

Plug and Play! All you need is the power cord and the connection to the video source to have theater-like entertainment. W1500 comes with two built-in 10W speakers with SRS* which can save money (or extra costs) by eliminating the need for Hi-Fi or external speakers.

Lens shift offers the extra flexibility to overcome any minor miscalculations during projector installation. All you have to do is adjust the switch next to the lens to shift the projected image up by 110%-130% within the projector housing. With this helpful feature, you’ll never have to worry about positioning the projector slightly out of place again!

W1500 1.6x Big Zoom feature frees up space with an impressive range of throw distances; giving you the freedom and flexibility of placing the projector anywhere without having to compromise your current decor.

Big screen entertainment in any room thanks to W1500’s short-throw projection feature. With a screen size up to 84” at 2m, experience gaming to the max without having to worry about space limitation or unwanted shadow puppets and image obstructions again!

Equipped with the latest DLP® technology, watching 3D movies directly from Blu-ray DVD or even 3D gaming just became the norm. Experience and enjoy the excitement of 3D viewing in the comfort of your home!

Turns typical 2D content into 3D. Enjoy the experiences of 3D without worrying about the costs and limited 3D contents.

This special mode minimizes the appearance of motion blur and judder to give you an ultra-smooth view of all the action – especially in fast moving scenes in movies and sports games. The Frame Interpolation technology estimates the motion changes from frame to frame and inserts an interpolated frame in-between existing frames, resulting in smoother, life-like motion quality.

W1500 features Texas Instruments\\\' advanced DarkChip3™ DLP® Technology, which projects higher brightness and deeper black levels by \\\"filling in\\\" the area where the digital micro mirror connects to its hinge - producing smooth, film-like picture quality.

By matching the color gamut defined by Rec. 709, W1500 delivers colors so real, it reflects what the human eye perceives.

For optimal color precision, the W1500 is built to match one of the highest high-definition video standards seen in professional-grade home projectors today: native Rec. 709 color gamut. This enables the projector to deliver colors so real that it reflects what the human eye perceives.

ISF Certified Calibration Controls customizes the picture quality in any room; offering optimized color performance calibration in both Day and Night modes that can adapt to any room’s layout, size and light levels.

As the first DLP brand to incorporate Philip’s ImageCare technology into its projector lamp system, BenQ has taken a leap further, developing its own SmarEco Technology to perfect what DLP can do for energy saving in the 21st century. W1500 brings together optimized lamp life with uncompromised brightness and exquisite picture quality
