Blending High-Brightness with DCI-P3 Color Accuracy

BenQ today introduced the ultimate digital home cinema projector X12000, a 4K UHD projector that balances the wide-gamut high-brightness output of Philips ColorSpark HLD LEDs with world-exclusive CinematicColor Technology to accurately produce the DCI-P3 color space. Defined by the digital film industry, the DCI-P3 color gamut encompasses a significantly larger portion of the visible color spectrum, proving far more colors than Rec. 709 and sRGB. With 8.3 million distinct pixels to fully meet Consumer Technology Association’s (CTA) 4K UHD specification, X12000 delivers the authentic experience of attending a commercial digital cinema.

“The meeting of two pinnacles of visual technology, X12000’s pioneering CinematicColor Technology harnesses the high output of ColorSpark HLD LED Technology to bring DCI-P3 color quality into the home cinema,” said Conway Lee, President of BenQ Corporation. “DCI-P3 is the color standard of DLP digital cinema, derived from the same technology in use at all IMAX auditoriums worldwide.”

Revolutionary Philips ColorSpark HLD LED technology provides a wide color gamut with up to three times screen brightness by combining green light four times as bright as conventional green LEDs from its High Lumen Density phosphor module with high-brightness red and blue LEDs, generating 2,200 lumens of brightness for use in well-lit rooms. X12000’s industry-exclusive CinematicColor Technology hones this wider color gamut and higher brightness to produce the expansive DCI-P3 color gamut, equaling the high standards of commercial digital cinema.
