Stunning 4K Comes to Life
Producing 8.3 million distinct pixels for true 4K UHD performance, BenQ's HT2550 projector uses 0.47" single-DMD-chip DLP technology. This minimizes the projector's profile for a sleek, compact design that fits modern lifestyles. Its pure, 4K-optimized optical system produces ultimate image precision and color accuracy without artifacts that are known to plague LCD projectors. In addition, it employs exclusive BenQ CinematicColor technology and an RGBRGB color wheel to meet the film industry's highest standards of color accuracy. With over 96 percent coverage of Rec. 709 color gamut with precise Delta E<3 performance, it faithfully reproduces exactly what filmmakers intended.
Advanced Technology for Uncompromising Entertainment
The HT2550's pristine 4K video quality is supercharged by high dynamic range (HDR10) support, offering greater brightness and contrast with auto image optimization to bring out every lifelike detail and breathtaking realism for cinematic enjoyment. Powered by the same durable 2015 Academy Award of Merit Oscar-winning DLP technology used in 90 percent of the world's digital cinemas, the HT2550 delivers long-lasting picture quality with precise colors and razor-sharp clarity without maintenance or degradation. Its performance is further enhanced by motion-adaptive edge pixel enhancement, sophisticated color algorithms, accurate flesh tone rendition and proprietary CinemaMaster Video+ and CinemaMaster Audio+ technologies, giving even modest spaces the likeness of world-class cinemas. With full support for the latest HDCP 2.2 copy protection, it allows users to enjoy all the fast-growing choices for 4K content.
Contemporary Design and Easy Setup to Fit Any Space
Blending beautiful aesthetics with flawless function, the HT2550's lightweight design, sleek profile and compact footprint blend perfectly into any décor. It's designed to set up fast with auto keystone correction and powerful 1.2x zoom, overcoming any installation hassles with ease. In addition, the HT2550 quickly becomes a smart projector by simply connecting an HDMI dongle, such as Google Chromecast, Roku, or Amazon Fire TV Stick, to instantly stream TV shows, movies, sports, and even video games to the big screen.
The BenQ HT2550 will be available in North America in January 2018 for under $2,000 retail.
