With a true 4K UHD resolution at 8.3 million pixels, the W5700 projector delivers BenQ CinematicColor 100% DCI-P3/Rec.709 colour gamut with HDR-PRO – a high dynamic range profile optimised for projectors. This means that content is sharper, more detailed, life-like and vivid than ever before.

Content compatible with these formats, including Netflix’s HDR10/HLG originals will be faithfully reproduced on the BenQ W5700 projector. Factory-calibrated with an extensive battery of tests, BenQ promises out-of-the-box colour accuracy on the W5700.

The W5700 can be operated in several modes. D.Cinema Mode enables 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut but with Standard Dynamic Range in 4K for comfortable viewing.

HDR Mode (Wide Color Gamut Enabled) adds HDR-PRO technology, ideal for 4K HDR and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) content. Cinema Mode enhances the image for living rooms, trading increased brightness to reproduce 100% Rec.709 colour accuracy at 1080p. A standalone HDR Mode delivers a brighter image while delivering a slightly restrained 100% Rec.709 colour gamut.
