THX HD Display Certification

As the first BenQ projector ever to be awarded the prestigious and exclusive THX Certification, BenQ engineers pursued over 18 months of rigorous development, comprising 200 THX laboratory tests covering over 500 data points to ensure that it meets Rec. 709 color accuracy, precise gamma, ideal color temperature, enhanced uniformity, and super high native contrast ratio requirements. Originally developed by Lucasfilm engineers to distinguish only best-in-class audio and video systems, THX Certification ensures that certified equipment can accurately deliver content as the director originally intended. The W8000’s THX Mode is pre-calibrated by THX engineers to deliver the most accurate out-of-the-box picture quality possible.
