  1. Not blowing my own trumpet but... 🎺🎺🎺🥇🥇🎺 (Hey, someone has to do it!) Full release is here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1BVe_OF2XqxXWBVEcPFy9fCMJ78u6KrFM/view Sydney, Australia, December 4th, 2019 – BenQ, the most popular 4K projector brand, captured the No.1 market share for the 7th consecutive quarter.

  2. Hey all, If you have a BenQ W1070, W1070+ or W1090 have a look at this 6 min video I knocked together tonight to show you just how simple it is to upgrade to a 4K W2700 HDR projector. If you have questions, ask away! Cheers, Matt
  3. @oztheatre (and all) - the noise is the WCG filter moving into place. This is perfectly normal. It is a mechanical filter that drops in when Wide Colour Gamut is detected. If you are not hearing it, it is possible you have WCG turned off? The iris noise however is not normal - We have discovered a small amount of original units had this error and all have been repaired or replaced
  4. Hi cwt, Nothing I can add to just yet All I can say is the next 6 months in BenQ land are going to be very interesting if you like our current offerings! Cheers, Matt
  5. Hey all, Just being a little proactive here. There has been some quesions over on AVS about the split screen syncing when switching on/off the WCG Filter and between sources. The explanation is attached but essentially it is because we are using 2 IC Chips to process the data the master syncs first and then the slave second. The delay can be up to 1 second and this is why you will see a sync time between the 2 sides causing a split screen. For the on/off WCG from BenQ "With the current DLP 4K technology, it is a common practice to adopt 2 IC chips to process the large volume of 4K signal data for better and stable transmission. When the two IC chips perform synchronization, there will be an image delay for seconds. For our projector, when the WCG function is switched on/off, the spilt screen will be observed for about one second, which means the two internal IC chips are in the process of synchronization. Once the synchronization is completed, the projection will back to full screen within just one second and users can have the benefits that WCG brings for a stable 4K HDR movie enjoyment." For the switching between sources from BenQ: "With the current DLP 4K technology, it is a common practice to adopt 2 IC chips to process the large volume of 4K signal data for better and stable transmission. When the two IC chips perform synchronization, there will be an image delay for seconds. For our projector, when input source or timing is being switched, the spilt screen will be observed for about one second, which means the two internal IC chips are in the process of synchronization. Once the synchronization is completed, the projection will back to full screen within just one second and users can have the benefits for a stable 4K HDR movie enjoyment."

  7. Ah good stuff- the f/w also addresses the split screen issue too just in case it wasnt HDMI cables..
  8. Rich, Have you applied the firmware update yet? The new iris settings makes a hell of a difference!
  9. I am not aware at this stage. We have a couple of new products coming out over the next 6 months but not sure if these are market ready just yet. Will see if I can find out and share
  10. Yep - the pricing doesnt justify us bringing it in just yet - we already have $1799, $1999, $2599 in the entry level space. Pretty hard to justify another model The colors on the TK800 are good ... its Rec709 - but the black levels are compromised by the extra brightness. It's a balancing act that falls a little short for most users.
  11. We have chosen to release the TK800M here in Australia and it is going out at a full RRP of $1799. We originally had the TK800 which was a great model but had an "edge halo" like all of the first gen 4K models. This new model is 3000 lumens HDR True 4K and is definitely worth a look I am however sad to hear about your experience with the W1070. You obviously called on my day off - wont let that happen again!
  12. Thats perfect - thank you. ... and Sorry! I will send you a PM now.
  13. I should have clicked the link and read the comments first - I would have known the nswer myself. It appears that unit was in the USA and was replaced by BenQ. I would hope no one here was experiencing this.
  14. Ah OK. Is it only when you engage HDR mode or all the time? Do you have / Could you take a video of it?
