Superb DCI-P3 Color Space for Unmatched Digital Cinema Experience
The combination of ColorSpark HLD LED technology and proprietary BenQ CinematicColor Technology accurately reaches the superwide DCI-P3 color range, significantly greater than the Rec. 709 HDTV color gamut. As defined by the American film industry, DCI-P3 provides far more colors covering a significantly larger portion of the visible spectrum for vibrant cinematic color performance unattainable with lesser color specifications. With DCI-P3, X12000 perfectly reproduces authentic cinematic quality with both intense brightness and precise color accuracy as the director originally intended.
High Native Contrast for the Finest Details
As one of the most important characteristics that determine the picture quality performance, native ANSI measures the ability of projectors to produce extreme levels of brightness and darkness. Generating industry-leading levels of high native ANSI contrast ratio performance, X12000 produces clearly deep, true blacks and resolves subtle layers and fine details in dark and bright scenes without washout.
Special Black-Paint Sealed Light Engine
BenQ takes extra countermeasures to guard against the small possibility of stray light leakage from the light tunnel affecting contrast and obscuring fine details, a special black paint seals the X12000 light engine to boost contrast and render even the slightest details in the darkest scenes.
Precise Gamma Control
X12000 maintains accurate gamma correction to deliver the perfect brightness balance for fine details and shading, with smooth greyscale performance to prevent overexposed bright scenes and preserve every subtlety in dark areas.

X12000 strictly adheres to ideal color temperatures to ensure true-to-life, cinematically accurate colors throughout every scene of any film.
State-of-the-Art Image Uniformity via TIR
BenQ’s pioneering Total Inner Reflection (TIR) optical system utilizes multiple prisms forming precise beam angles, dispersing light to reflect more uniformly from the Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) and register beautifully even color, brightness, and fidelity across the entire projected image. The result is pristine image quality without blemish across the entire big screen, with nothing to distract the audience from flawless cinema enjoyment.
CinemaMaster™ turns any room into a world-class home theater with video-enhancing technologies sure to please even the most critical movie enthusiasts.
Pixel Enhancer 4K
Pixel Enhancer 4K is a motion-adaptive edge enhancement feature that detects changes in color between an object and its background to produce sharp edges and precise surface textures.
Color Enhancer modulates complex color algorithms to flawlessly render saturated colors, fine gradients, intermediate hues and subtle pigments.
The Flesh Tone feature prevents discoloration of skin tones from the light of the projection beam, portraying every skin tone in its most beautiful shade.
Digital Color Transient Improvement (DCTI) &
Digital Luminance Transient Improvement (DLTI)
Sophisticated algorithms significantly improve color and light output when producing images with contrasting colors or bright and dark scales. DCTI heightens color vibrancy for drastic color transitions without noise interference. DLTI reduces noise from fast switching of varied luminances to optimized brightness and contrast. The result is picture quality with the utmost picture depth and color performance.

A price too good to be true, usually is.

Our customers often share these stories with us, so we thought we would share a few with you, in hopes that you don't fall prey to any of these unscrupulous sales tactics.
- Goods may be grey market/parallel imported. They may state that the product includes the manufacturer warranty, but not tell you that the warranty is valid only in Europe, Japan, or South America, and NOT in NZ.
- You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
- Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
- Hidden charges which don't show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
- When something goes wrong, faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.
- There are so many scamming online sellers today, “buyer beware” protect yourself!

Concerned About Fraud?
The internet has become a more popular source for online shopping, regrettably we have seen more and more instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. Parallel imports or personal imports where the NZ supplier refuses to repair when things go wrong is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price. Constantly we hear all these stories, once bitten it’s all to late looking for that refund or replacement. The stories are outrageous at times, customers from Trademe and ebay with no place to turn, time consuming and very frustrating….
So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?
- Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
- Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
- Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
- Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it's genuine or not.
We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.
