BenQ W500 Features:
Senseye Contrast Enhancement
The W500 maintains high contrast, whatever is on screen and wherever youre watching.
Senseye Clarity Enhancement
The W500 is designed to give you pristine HD-quality video even when the source is noise-ridden SD.
Senseye Motion Optimization
The W500 remedies shortcomings in regular projectors when it comes to handling fast-changing video content.
Senseye Color Management
Getting the widest possible range of colors and displaying them with precision accuracy is another key advantage of the W500.
The W500 achieves greater color accuracy by handling each color signal in the video input individually, applying its brightness value directly in rendering the video. In contrast, regular projectors use a sampling process, which inevitably results in a loss of information about specific color signals and color distortion in the final projection image.
Converts SD to HD Quality
The W500 not only converts SD content such as analog TV broadcasts to HD-quality video, but it analyzes an amazing 1,024 pixels in the source for each pixel in the final HD version for native HD-like picture quality.
The W500 analyzes multiple frames in source video to identify and then eliminate pixels giving rise to visual noise, and also corrects for distortions resulting from too much compression.
Make the "Jaggies" Go Away
Sophisticated Multi-Dimensional Diagonal Filtering (MDDF) technology smooths away the "jaggies" that crop up along the edges of moving objects-even those lying at shallow angles of 5 to 7.
