With cinematic color fidelity of Rec. 709 compliance and ultra-high contrast performance, W8000 unleashes astounding picture quality for custom home theaters made perfect by CinemaMaster video enhancement and the installation flexibility of H/V lens shift and lens options.
Reserved only for best-in-class audio and video systems, THX Certification guarantees equipment for accurate reproduction of content as the director originally intended. To earn this prestigious and exclusive distinction, BenQ engineers pursued over 18 months of rigorous development comprising 200 THX laboratory tests covering over 500 data points. Their crowning achievement is the W8000 which delivers Rec.709 color accuracy, precise gamma, ideal color temperature, enhanced uniformity, super high native contrast ratio, and THX Mode, pre-calibrated by THX engineers for the most accurate out-of-the-box picture quality possible, to recreate every single detail of the authentic content and image quality filmmakers wanted you to see.
Rec. 709 HDTV Standard for the Finest Cinematic Color Authentic HDTV Color Accuracy
Rec. 709 is the international HDTV standard to guarantee accurate replica of cinematic color as the director intended.
With 6X Speed RGBRGB Color Wheel, W8000 is calibrated for cinematic color modeled on the HDTV standard, Rec. 709, to deliver refined colors that are the truest possible reproduction of the original palette of your video.
How Our Projectors Are Designed for Rec. 709
Only displays that conform to Rec. 709 can reproduce colors correctly in all images through an entire movie. While most projector manufacturers choose a saturated color tone bias to increase colorfulness, resulting in color accuracy loss, W8000 achieves the Rec. 709 color standard. The process of building a projector includes many variables such as lenses, lamps and color wheel coating. We work relentlessly to close any gaps from those variances and to make our projectors perform exactly to Rec. 709. This is because we believe that colors matter to our users when enjoying movies as they were meant to be seen.
BenQ’s ISF-trained expert engineers tried more than 20 different combinations of color segments and color wheel coating, the factors that directly affect color gamut and brightness of a projector.
To maximize color accuracy, the process of software optimization involved adjusting the blacks, whites and greys towards D65 defined by Rec. 709. And the three primary and three secondary colors were adjusted one by one, until they were as close as possible to the references on the Rec. 709 color gamut.
Three color adjustment stations in the production line perform final checks on every single unit of our Rec. 709 projectors. Using exclusive BenQ color adjustment procedures, we make sure each projector is manufactured according to the Rec. 709 color standard, and BenQ quality engineers perform final color tests on each projector built to ensure Rec. 709 performance.
Spectacular Full HD 1080p Visual Performance
Treat your eyes the brilliance of a Full HD 1080p optimized optical system, enhanced by the Texas Instruments Darkchip™3 to produce superb picture quality and contrast ratio. Enjoy HD content with the finest clarity and sharpness – from Blu-ray and video games to live broadcasts.
High Native Contrast for the Finest Details
Generating industry-leading levels of contrast ratio performance, W8000 produces deep, true blacks for a truly awe-inspiring visual
experience. In addition to the outstanding black level, W8000’s high native contrast clearly resolves subtle layers and fine details in
Furthermore, BenQ takes extra countermeasures to guard against the small possibility of stray light leakage from the light tunnel affecting contrast and obscuring fine details, a special black paint seals the W8000 light engine to boost contrast and render even the slightest details in the darkest scenes.
Class-Leading High Fill Factor
Featuring class-leading high fill factor, the W8000 shines more light into each pixel, improving definition for small text and fine
details, and eliminating “screen door effect”, for beautifully rendered images.
An ingenious solution that intensifies your viewing pleasure while saving energy, SmartEco™ automatically adjusts lamp brightness
based on content to project richer blacks and increase contrast for tiny text and subtle details.
Flawless All-Glass Optics for the Best Viewing Quality
The BenQ Full HD 1080p optical system uses only the highest grade glass for superior light penetration and realistic image quality.
Proprietary low-dispersion lens coatings minimize chromatic aberration, so you can enjoy your favorite HD content in brilliant clarity.

State-of-the-Art Image Uniformity via TIR
BenQ’s pioneering Total Inner Reflection (TIR) optical system utilizes multiple prisms forming precise beam angles, dispersing light
to reflect more uniformly from the Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) and register beautifully even color, brightness, and fidelity
across the entire projected image. The result is pristine image quality without blemish across the entire big screen, with nothing to
distract the audience from flawless cinema enjoyment.
CinemaMaster™ turns any room into a world-class home theater with video-enhancing technologies sure to please even the most critical movie enthusiasts.
Inserting 36 interpolated frames between sequences produces seamless, vivid 60 frame-per-second videos. You’ll be the action
hero of your own theater, crushing the evils of laggy images, jittery playback and blurry shadows.
Color Enhancer modulates complex color algorithms to flawlessly render saturated colors, fine gradients, intermediate hues and
Pixel Enhancer is a motion-adaptive edge enhancement feature that detects changes in color between an object and its
background to produce sharp edges and precise surface textures.
The Flesh Tone feature prevents discoloration of skin tones from the light of the projection beam, portraying every skin tone in its
most beautiful shade.
Digital Color Transient Improvement (DCTI) & Digital Luminance Transient Improvement (DLTI)
Sophisticated algorithms significantly improve color and light output when producing images with contrasting colors or bright and
dark scales. DCTI heightens color vibrancy for drastic color transitions without noise interference. DLTI reduces noise from fast
switching of varied luminances to optimized brightness and contrast. The result is picture quality with the utmost picture depth and
Independent 3D Color Control for All 6 Primary Colors
BenQ’s unique color management tool allows you to fine-tune the gain, saturation and hue of six primary colors (R/G/B/C/M/Y) individually. Now you can customize your colors to mimic nature, to simulate other galaxies, and to everything in between.
Professionally Calibrated Visual Entertainment
With the Imaging Science Foundation’s highly reputed ISFccc® calibration built-in, the W8000’s image and color performance can be customized for any space, along with preset light balance modes for day and night.
H/V Lens Shift for Perfect Picture Placement
With H/V Lens Shift, the lens can be shifted vertically or horizontally to fit perfectly into any room or work around small obstacles with a dynamic range of projection locations. Image placement can be adjusted up/down or left/right without sacrificing image quality, resulting in a custom installation in any venue.
