Looking for THX / Rec. 709 Home Cinema Quality?

THX Home Cinema Projected Colours more important than resolution?

THX Certified Home Projectors undergo over 400 tests to ensure the richest colors, most optimal motion processing and most perfect picture possible. To accurately reflect the artist’s vision, primary and blended colors must first be reproduced with absolute precision to match the original source. Colour is more important than the number of pixels because on a 1080P projector you can't count the dots from 4m but you can see the correct colours.

Tip: You can buy a low cost 4K (entry level) projector that's true 4K but from 5m back you won't be able to tell. Then again for around the same price you could buy a more accurate up market 1080P HD 3D projector with better colours (100% Rec. 709, or about 6% more accurate..) the projected image will stand out as being "Cinema Quality" no matter how far back you're sitting.We can't tell the difference from 5m back so that's not what quality projectors are about.

You buy the best projector you can afford with Rec. 709 or THX certified colours to get that cinema feel. The number of dots (above 1080P) or claimed (often overstated) contrast ratio numbers are not as important as accurate colours. A real cinema can't come close to the number of dots per inch a good 1080P projector pumps out on your projection screen.
4K is a bit like 3D how often will you really use it?
 

BenQ W8000 THX HD 3D

Quick road map:
Entry level: W1090, W1700, TK800 / Mid range: W3000 / High End:W8000 W11000

Once you get to mid range projectors (W3000 >) you also see full 100% Rec. 709 colours.

Tip: You can buy a low cost 4K (entry level) projector that's true 4K but from 5m back you won't be able to tell. Then again for around the same price you could buy a more accurate up market 1080P HD 3D projector with better colours (100% Rec. 709, or about 6% more accurate..) the projected image will stand out as being "Cinema Quality" no matter how far back you're sitting.

Projector Tips

Use the remote control Be sure to turn your projector off using the remote as switching off the mains power doesn't allow the lamp to cool down slowly and will shorten its life. Never move your projector while the bulb is on.

Be decisive on or off!

Don't turn off your projector to save half an hour of lamp time, (e.g. the next show is 30 minutes away) it's better to leave running because cooling and heating the lamp shortens it's life more.

Cable it properly Where possible use new HDMI connections for the best quality sound and image. If you've got none spare - use DVI input rather than component input signals, component input signals rather than composite, and composite rather than RF connections.

Sure you can use wireless unless you want to microwave popcorn or watch 3D..

So for value and almost perfect colours also have a look at BenQ Rec. 709  W3000, W8000 here to learn why 100% of IMAX theatres use DLP. BenQ W11000H HDR.

Truth about CR  What's all this about Contrast Ratio?

Millions to one is just marketing "puffery" no matter who claims it. 
Ask us for the truth.


Did you know?

 

You can't see 4K?

From 5m back we can't see the difference here's why!

 

 
We can't tell the difference from 5m back so that's not what quality projectors are about.
