BenQ Debuts True 4K UHD HDR Home Cinema Projector Designed for Modern Families

BenQ has announced the CineHome W1700 DLP 4K HDR home cinema projector, bringing the 4K home cinema experience to all audiences at a sensible cost.

“W1700 brings home the magic of big-screen 4K digital cinema to the broader audience,” said Conway Lee, President of the BenQ Corporation. “Now anyone can enjoy spectacular 4K movie nights, complete with advanced audio-visual enhancement and HDR at an amazing value.”

Producing 8.3 million distinct pixels for true 4K UHD performance, the W1700 utilises a pure 4K-optimised optical system for ultimate image precision and colour accuracy without artefacts that can plague LCD projectors.

The W1700’s pristine 4K video quality is supercharged by High Dynamic Range (HDR10) support, offering greater brightness and contrast range with auto image optimisation to bring out every lifelike detail for cinema enjoyment. The W1700 delivers breathtaking realism to the living room, and with full support for the latest HDCP 2.2 copy protection, users can enjoy all the best 4K content.


The W1700 employs exclusive BenQ CinematicColour technology and RGBRGB colour wheel to meet the film industry’s highest standards of colour accuracy. With over 96% coverage of Rec. 709 colour gamut with precise Delta E<3 performance, the W1700 faithfully reproduces exactly what filmmakers intended.

W1700’s astounding audio-visual performance is further enhances by proprietary CinemaMaster Video+ and CinemaMaster Audio + 2 technologies, turning even modest spaces into world-class cinema auditoriums with motion-adaptive edge pixel enhancement, sophisticated colour-algorithms, and beautiful flesh-tone rendition as well as dramatic audio processing for resonant bass and soaring high notes.

Blending aesthetics with functionality, the W1700’s lightweight design, sleek profile, and compact footprint will suit any room. The W1700 easily becomes a smart projector by connecting an HDMI dongle such as Google Chromecast or Amazon Fire TV stick to instantly stream TV shoes, movies, sports and even video games to the big screen.

The BenQ W1700 4K UHD DLP Home Cinema projector will be available for pre-order at selected retail stores in December 2017 for $2,499.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)
