BenQ Launches A Projector World-First

The W1080ST is the first 3D, Full HD short-throw video projector to be released anywhere in the world. It produces a 65 inch display from just a metre away and, as a result, can adapt to any room’s layout, size and ambient lighting.

BenQ’s General Manager, Chee F. Chung, praised the W1080ST’s innovative feature set.

“The W1080ST home entertainment projector is an exciting release for us because it is a unique offering, packed with desirable features and showcasing full-HD content in sharp 1080p definition.

“It’s the world’s first Full-HD short throw home entertainment projector, creating a 65″ image when positioned at a distance of just one metre, preventing image obstruction and shadows on the screen which is particularly important when engaging in motion sensing games,” said Chung.

BenQ also released the W1070, a Full HD projector capable of 3D playback for less than $1,000.

“Likewise,” continue Chung, “the W1070 is a quality home entertainment projector offering great bang for your buck – it’s our first fully featured 3D Full-HD projector with a retail price of less than $1000 and in this price category it is unrivalled.”

The W1070 and the W1080ST both 2,000 lumen brightness, a 10,000:1 contrast ratio, 2 HDMI connections and 10 Watt built in speakers.

Available now, BenQ’s W1080ST and W1070 retail at $1,799 and $999 respectively.
