AV Pro­jec­tors of the Year

Sound+Image - - Contents -

Af­ter we’d re­viewed a se­ries of pro­jec­tors based on Texas In­stru­ments’ clever XPR tech­nol­ogy, which cre­ates Ul­tra-HD res­o­lu­tion from mul­ti­ple hits of a lesser-res­o­lu­tion panel, BenQ’s TK800 is the first we’ve seen to nail not only 4K res­o­lu­tion but also the frame rate — some oth­ers seem in­ex­pli­ca­bly un­able to de­liver 24 frames per sec­ond or a di­rect mul­ti­ple, re­sult­ing in jud­der. The TK800 avoids that (ex­cept­ing only 50Hz in­ter­laced ma­te­rial, which is con­verted to 60fps — but give it 50Hz pro­gres­sive out­put and it’s fine), and given it’s also cur­rently one of the least ex­pen­sive 4K XPR pro­jec­tors at $2199, we’re de­lighted to give it this award. As with many of our win­ners, you can read our full re­view on avhub.com.au.

JUDGES’ COM­MENT “Ul­tra-HD pro­jec­tion us­ing TI’s clever XPR tech, solv­ing the frame-rate is­sues, all at an amaz­ing price.”
