Short-Throw Projector Combines Colorific™ Performance and Low Input Lag for an Unparalleled Gaming Experience
COSTA MESA, Calif. — Oct. 24, 2016 — BenQ America Corp., the global No.1 DLP® brand, is pleased to announce that its latest Colorific™ entertainment projector, the HT2150ST, received an Editor's Choice award by leading review site Projector Central. Engineered to bring big-screen enjoyment to any space, the HT2150ST short-throw, high-brightness, full-HD 1080p projector offers an immersive 100-inch crystal-clear picture at just five feet from the screen.
Optimized for console gaming, the HT2150ST projector features an unbeatable low input lag, empowering gamers to react to every attack without delay. The fast, micro-second DLP chip response time delivers smooth and quick visuals without motion blur. Additionally, two specialized gaming modes provide visual clarity to fit the ambient lighting of any environment, unearthing hidden details in dark shadows and bright highlights in a dark room, or protecting image detail in a well-lit room.
"The BenQ HT2150ST hits on all cylinders where it counts the most. For serious gamers the big deal is input lag, and at 16 ms it is the fastest digital projector we've ever measured," said Evan Powell of Projector Central. "But in addition to the fast response time, the HT2150ST produces very little fan noise – a big advantage for those who are sitting right behind it. Its picture sparkles with solid ANSI contrast and color saturation. Color balance is close enough to ideal that it needs little or no tweaking out of the box, so it is fully functional for home theater as well as gaming.”
The HT2150ST projector boasts Colorific™ performance powered by Texas Instruments' long-lasting DLP single-chip technology and 2200 ANSI lumens of brightness. The display offers breathtaking full-HD 1080p resolution, a six-segment RGBRGB color wheel with BrilliantColor™ technology and 15000:1 contrast ratio for outstanding color performance. With a .69 short-throw ratio and 1.2X zoom ratio, the HT2150ST can be placed within five feet from the screen for a hassle-free installation. Its two 20-watt speakers, enhanced with CinemaMaster™ Audio+, means gamers can expect great stereo sound right from the projector with whisper-quiet operation.
"We rarely give an Editor's Choice Award, reserving it only for consumer and home theater products we get extremely excited about. The BenQ HT2150ST is one of them. If you are into serious gaming in very large screen format, don't miss it," added Powell.
The HT2150ST features dual HDMI® ports with one doubling as an MHL port, which allows users to unchain media from their mobile devices and seamlessly display videos, games or photos on the big screen. Equipped with BenQ's SmartEco™ energy-saving technology, the HT2150ST automatically adjusts lamp brightness based on content, projecting richer blacks and increasing contrast to reveal tiny text and subtle details.
The BenQ HT2150ST is now shipping, just in time for the holidays, at a retail price of $999.
