    Rec. 709 Standard for Authentic Cinematic Color
    Rec.709 is the international High Definition standard that guarantees display devices can faithfully reproduce the original cinematic color palette the movie director intended audiences to see. 
    Using the latest and most advanced 6X Speed RGBRGB Color Wheel with custom segment angles and coatings, the HT4050 achieves Rec. 709 cinematic color reproduction, delivering precise Hollywood Studio color right out-of-the box.
    See your favorite movies as you have never seen them before, with the exact cinematic colors as the movie studios intended. 
    How Our Projectors Are Designed for Rec. 709
    While most projector manufacturers choose a saturated color tone bias towards increased colorfulness, resulting in color accuracy loss, the HT4050 fully achieves the Rec.709 color standard. The process of building a projector includes many variables such as lenses, lamps and color wheel coating. We work relentlessly to close any gaps from those variances and to make our projectors perform exactly to Rec. 709. This is because we believe that colors matter to our users when enjoying movies as they were meant to be seen.
    Hardware Design
    BenQ’s ISF-trained expert engineers tried more than 20 different combinations of color segments and color wheel coating, the factors that directly affect color gamut and brightness of a projector.
    Software Optimization
    To maximize color accuracy, the process of software optimization involved adjusting the blacks, whites and greys towards D65 defined by Rec. 709. And the three primary and three secondary colors were adjusted one by one, until they were as close as possible to the references on the Rec. 709 color gamut.
    Production Line Quality Control
    Three color adjustment stations in our production line perform final checks on every single unit of our Rec. 709 projectors. Using exclusive BenQ color adjustment procedures, we make sure each projector is manufactured according to the Rec. 709 color standard, and BenQ quality engineers perform final color tests on each projector built to ensure Rec.709 performance.
    Spectacular Crisper, sharper Full HD 1080p
    Built with high-grade pure glass elements in its light engine and an all-glass cinema grade projection lens, the HT4050 beams crisper, sharper Full HD 1080p content than any projector in its class.

Everyone will be amazed by the amount of image detail they will be able to see, even during fast motion or horizontal panning scenes. 
    Color Enhancer

    Pixel Enhancer
    Pixel Enhancer 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.
    Flesh Tone
    The Flesh Tone feature delivers more natural, true-to-life skin tones to the screen, enabling the HT4050 to effectively recreate the ultimate movie theater experience in the comfort of your home.
    Featuring CinemaMaster audio, powered by MaxxAudio technology, the HT4050 delivers a powerful 10-Watts of fantastic cinema quality sound. An acoustically balanced driver encased in a resonant chamber inside the projector delivers vibrant, rich, full range sound using the same Wave Audio algorithms employed by Hollywood studios to dramatically improve the movie viewing experience. 
    Independent 3D Color Control for All 6 Primary Colors
    BenQ's unique color management tool allows users to independently fine-tune the gain, saturation and hue of six primary colors (R/G/B/C/M/Y). Enabling users to customize colors to accurately reproduce every shade found in nature.
    Professionally Calibrated Visual Entertainment
