BenQ’s affordable CineHome HT2550 4K HDR projector went on sale in January for $1499USD and the company has just announced the equally affordable TK800 which not only adds 800-lumens over the HT2550 but also featured dedicated sports modes.
The BenQ TK800 features a new 4K RGBW color wheel which covers 92% of the Rec. 709 color gamut. Coupled with the 3,000-lumen high brightness lamp, not only is the latest 4K HDR projector from BenQ suitable for media room setups but also brighter environments like living rooms and even backyard parties.
Speaking of backyard parties, the TK800 also comes with dedicated Football and Sports modes. The Football Mode “preserves natural skin tones while intensifying lush green grass, simultaneously clarifying the announcer’s commentary against the cheering crowd of an open-air stadium.” On the other hand, the Sports Mode “prioritizes realistic skin shades while enhancing wood tones, vivid reds, and balanced greens and blues. Clear acoustical quality brings out the announcer’s voice and details such as squeaking sneakers, referee whistles, and ice scraping under skates.”
The 4K UHD TK800 DLP projector is also recieving BenQ’s upgraded CinemaMaster Audio+ 2 sound with a wider frequency range, 5-watt power, an aluminum driver diaphragm, and resonant sound chambers which the company says will offer delicate details, pore vocals, and resounding bass.
Like the HT2550, the TK800 is affordable as well, and will be available in April with an MSRP of $1499USD.
