BenQ debuts “true 4K” HDR projector for home theatre setups

BenQ-HT2550-4K-HDR-projector

With HDR10 support, the projector’s CinematicColor technology and RGBRGB color wheel produce over 96% coverage of the Rec. 709 color gamut specification.

With 4K HDR content and gaming becoming more widespread, consumers are looking for affordable 4K options for displaying it. Home theatres with projectors are also fairly popular, but for the most part most setups are relegated to 1080p resolution. While 4K HDR projectors do exist, the cost can be unattainable for most. BenQ is looking to change that with the CineHome HT2550, a true 4K HDR projector with CinematicColor technology — and all for under $2000USD.

“Homeowners today want to replicate the magic of the big-screen 4K digital cinema at home,” said Lars Yoder, President, BenQ America Corp. “The HT2550 makes that possible, delivering striking 4K resolution for spectacular movie nights. Engineered with advanced audio and video enhancements and HDR capabilities, it’s an incredible value for the finest home cinema experience.”

You may notice I’ve used the word “true” a couple times here. The reason being is there are a few other affordable 4K projectors out there, but most of them don’t render in 4K but rather upscale or simply accept 4K content and actually output it in 1080p. With BenQ’s HT2550, the company says you’ll be getting true 4K UHD performance with 8.3 million distinct pixels using 0.47″ single-DMD-chip DLP technology. With HDR10 support, the projector’s CinematicColor technology and RGBRGB color wheel produce over 96% coverage of the Rec. 709 color gamut standard.
