BenQ Simplifies Home Projection Installation

BenQ’s new living room projector, the W1350, combines side- and short-throw projection with vertical and horizontal lens shift, a 1.5x zoom and 120% – 148% lens shift capabilities. In addition to these, the projector supports BenQ’s wireless FullHD kit and features MHL connectivity.

A six-segment colour wheel, which spins at six-times regular speed, and DLP technology combine to provide 10-bit colour. It has ISFccc certification, for professional projection calibration, with ISF Day and Night modes. Additionally, BenQ says that the response time is low to support gaming use.

As with all BenQ projectors, the W1350 has Smart Eco features like auto source detect, no source detected and eco blank modes.

Resolution is 1920 x 1080. A 260W lamp, lasting between 2,000 and 4,000 hours, provides up to 2,500 lumens of brightness. Throw ratio is 1.39 – 2.09, providing a 100″ image at 3m. Images can be sized between 26″ and 325″.

The W1350 features HDMI, MHL-HDMI, component, composite, USB-A, USB-B, mini USB-B, RS232 and IR receiver connections, as well as a 10W speaker. It measures 330 x 247 x 120mm and weighs 3.7kg. BenQ began selling the unit in February.

It is selling for $1032 + tax in the UK.
