BenQ Expands Line of Award-Winning Home Theater Digital Projectors
PE7700 Features Latest HD2+ DMD Chipset from Texas Instruments, 1000 Lumens,
a 2500:1 Contrast Ratio and 6-Segment Color Wheel for High Performance
LAS VEGAS (January 6, 2005) - BenQ today announced a new addition to its award-winning line of home theater digital projectors, the PE7700, a strong, mid-range unit for home theater enthusiasts who desire a high standard of image quality. The PE7700 features the latest DLP-based HD2+ DMD chipset from Texas Instruments, 1000 ANSI lumens of brightness, a 2500:1 contrast ratio and 6-segment color wheel that displays up to 16.7 million colors.
The PE7700 home theater projector features BenQ's proprietary Senseye technology. Senseye digital-enhancement technology automatically and dynamically improves image quality, adjusts brightness and darkness levels, performs color-mapping procedures, and reduces jagged edges on images. Senseye also adjusts contrast, color and sharpness settings, which significantly enhances the display of pictures and graphics-intensive applications such as gaming, digital photos, entertainment and professional multimedia presentations.
To keep this highly calibrated system operating properly, the PE7700 comes with micro-dust filters that aid in the prevention of air particles damaging the DMD chipsets. The result is a home theater digital projector that is designed for long-lasting operation and provides consistent image quality. The PE7700 utilizes proprietary BenQ video-processing technology to support the latest DLP chip set from Texas Instruments. The DLP chipsets produce flawless pictures that won't fade or degrade over time.
The PE7700 digital home cinema projector features a high WXGA resolution (1280x720), produces a 100-inch image at a 9.8 feet throw ratio and has brightness levels of 1000 ANSI lumens. The unit weighs approximately ten pounds, and the casing dimensions are 15" (wide) x 4.5" (height) x 11.8" (deep). The PE7700 includes BNC (x5), RCA (video), S-Video, component (RCAx3) and HDMI (with HDCP x1) connectors.
Available in early March 2005, the PE7700 comes with an estimated street price of $3,299.
