COSTA MESA, Calif. Jan. 18, 2018 — BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions, today announced the availability of the new 1080p CineHome HT2050A home entertainment projector — replacing its award-winning predecessor, the HT2050. Ideal for watching movies and playing games in a small or medium media space, the HT2050A features a 6X speed RGBRGB color wheel that achieves more than 96% Rec. 709 accuracy to authentically deliver colors close to what the original filmmaker intended. It boasts BenQ’s exclusive CinematicColor™ technology for more refined color reproduction, a high-performance speaker and a simple setup that makes the most of any space for an uncompromising big-screen experience.
“Just because a space is small doesn’t mean viewers should lose any part of the cinematic experience,” said Jeffrey Hsieh, business manager at BenQ America Corp. “The BenQ CineHome HT2050A was engineered to provide a big-screen experience in small to medium media spaces for movie enthusiasts. From a captivating picture, to immersive audio, video game modes and installation flexibility, the HT2050A is a great choice for any home theater or entertainment room.”
The BenQ CineHome HT2050A brings the true movie theater experience with full HD 1080p visual quality to even the most modest of media spaces. It features a 6X speed RGBRGB color wheel, achieving >96% Rec. 709 to authentically reproduce refined colors of original content. The 3D-capable projector comes equipped with a 10W CinemaMaster Audio+ 2 speaker for custom-tuned modes for immersive, dramatically deeper audio.
Low 16.67ms input lag and a special Game Mode make the HT2050A a great choice for epic, heart-pounding gaming. Including two digital HDMI connectivity ports (HDMIx1, HDMI/MHLx1) for a Google Chromecast, Roku or Amazon FireTV, the HT2050A makes an easy single-cable solution for video and audio streaming. And with the HDMI/MHL port, users can also stream full HD content from any MHL-enabled smartphone or tablet.
BenQ CineHome HT2050A users will appreciate all that has gone into eliminating the frustrations of projector placement, even in tight spaces. With shorter throw projection capabilities, the HT2050A can maximize big-screen thrills in a minimum space, requiring as little as eight feet to project stunning 100″ pictures.
The projector features vertical lens shift, allowing images to be moved up and down without sacrificing image quality for easy tabletop setup or mounting installation, and horizontal and vertical keystone correction to eliminate trapezoid effects when projecting from a corner or a side table. As a result, the HT2050 fits right into any space, and the three-year warranty provides owners with peace of mind.
The BenQ CineHome HT2050A is available now in the U.S. at a retail price of $749 USD via BenQ Direct, Amazon and B&H Photo, and it will be available soon from Best Buy, Projector People and Fry’s.
