Digital Home Theatre – The BenQ PE8700 Projector

BenQ, a leading manufacturer of digital lifestyle devices, today introduced its new flagship Digital Home Theater Projector, the BenQ PE8700. This projector represents BenQ's commitment to create a true digital home theater environment and adds to the company's extensive line-up of projectors.

Utilizing proprietary BenQ video-processing technology to support the DLP™ chip set, the PE8700 delivers vivid images that reflect the power and capabilities of the projector. The BenQ PE8700 is HDTV-ready with YCbCr/YPbPr inputs and support S-Video and component video.

"In creating a true home cinema experience, it's been a challenge to deliver the high performance consumers demand at a reasonable price point," said Lonnie Pastor, business development manager of Home Entertainment at BenQ. "The exceptional performance and value of the BenQ PE8700 clearly satisfies those demands."

BenQ's flagship projector, the PE8700 delivers an astounding 2000:1 contrast ratio at 1000 ANSI lumens with 90 percent uniformity. With a 300Hz refresh rate, images are flicker free. The BenQ PE8700 can support 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios with a native resolution of 1280 x 720. The flexibility of delivering resolutions ranging from 640 x 350 to 1024 x 768 is augmented by its 3:2 pull-down recovery and ability to throw a 50-inch projection at 6.6 feet. Accurate color reproduction is ensured with a 16.7 million-color palette and six-segment color wheel. The BenQ PE8700 also features PIP/POP functions, P-Scan and a Digital Keystone correction system for quick and easy set-up.

The projector comes with BenQ's product commitment-a free first year "Hot-Swap" program and a three-year limited warranty.
