BenQ W1700 4K HDR projector launched in Malaysia for RM7,999

From L-R: Brian Lee, General Manager of BenQ Malaysia; and Sasha Huang, BenQ Asia Pacific Business Line Manager with the BenQ W1700 4K HDR projector.

BenQ believes that it can change your lukewarm perception towards projectors with the W1700 – a DLP-based 4K projector that supports HDR10.

The W1700 even uses BenQ’s proprietary CinematicColor technology and a RGBRGB color wheel to ensure flawless color accuracy. As a matter of fact, the W1700 is capable of reproducing 96 percent of the Rec. 709 color gamut and is accurate enough to earn a respectable Delta E<3 performance value.

The visual credentials of the W1700 is further supplemented with BenQ’s CinemaMaster Video+ technology, which comprises features such as motion-adaptive edge pixel enhancement, a color enhancer to accurately render saturated colors, fine gradients, intermediate hues, and subtle pigments, as well as skin tone correction to preserve the natural complexion of human subjects. 

Setting up the W1700 is a pretty straightforward affair, thanks to its auto keystone correction which helps to ensure that its projection is always a perfect square (and not a trapezoid) regardless of where the projector is placed. 

With normal use, the lamp of the W1700 should be able to last for up to 4,000 hours. Flip the projector to ‘Economic Mode’, which will automatically adjust the brightness of the lamp to suit the content that’s being displayed, and you’ll be able to extend its lifespan to 10,000 hours.

The W1700 is equipped with an extensive selection of connectivity ports to accommodate your various media devices, including a VGA port, two HDMI ports, a USB 2.0 Type-A port, a USB 2.0 mini-B port, a 3.5mm audio-in jack, a 3.5mm audio-out jack, and a RS-232 port.

The W1700 will be retailing for RM7,999 – a fair price to pay, considering that it has a projection size that ranges from 60-inches to 300-inches. Go ahead, try finding a 300-inch 4K TV that shares a similar price tag.

The W1700 will be available beginning January 2018.
