The BenQ X12000 is a 4K UHD projector for the home that represents the first of its kind. So what does it offer?
BenQ promises the X12000 will balance the wide-gamut high-brightness output of Philips ColorSpark HLD LEDs with “world-exclusive” CinematicColor Technology (which aims to accurately produce the DCI-P3 color space).
The DCI-P3 colour gamut encompasses a significantly larger portion of the visible colour spectrum, proving far more colours than Rec. 709 and sRGB. The X12000 uses 8.3 million distinct pixels (it needs to, in order to fully meet Consumer Technology Association’s (CTA) 4K UHD specification).
What does this mean? “The authentic experience of attending a commercial digital cinema,” says BenQ.
“The meeting of two pinnacles of visual technology, X12000’s pioneering CinematicColor Technology harnesses the high output of ColorSpark HLD LED Technology to bring DCI-P3 colour quality into the home cinema,” said Conway Lee, President of BenQ Corporation.
“DCI-P3 is the colour standard of DLP digital cinema, derived from the same technology in use at all IMAX auditoriums worldwide.”
