BenQ TK850 4K Projector Unboxing Video
StereoNET's Tony O'Brien unboxes and gives a brief overview of BenQ's new TK850 4K UHD DLP projector that is ideal for living areas and the upcoming rebooted sports seasons.
Aimed at sporting enthusiasts, the 3000 lumens of high brightness and >98% coverage of Rec. 709 colour gamut, BenQ says the TK850 offers strikingly vivid colours even in brightly-lit living rooms.
Where movie buffs and videophiles are chasing the blackest of blacks and have embraced the award-winning W2700 projector, the TK850 was designed from the ground up to “take full advantage of 4K HDR broadcasts of live sporting events to deliver breathtaking realism on a grand scale.”
BenQ says its “exclusive projector-optimised HDR-PRO technology with HDR10/HLG support utilises dynamic iris control and HDR brightness for enhanced tone mapping to produce spectacular brightness and contrast to reveal every detail of HDR-format Blu-ray and broadcasts. “
The TK850's dedicated Sports Mode is said to enhance video quality with realistic skin tones, offer naturally balanced blues and greens for gorgeous fields of grass, and warm woodgrains for indoor sports action.
It's versatile too with vertical lens shift, 1.3X zoom, and short-throw projection, allowing it to fit into almost any space.
The BenQ TK850 is available now and sells for $2,999 RRP. Stay tuned for StereoNET's in-depth review.
