BenQ V7050i 4K Ultra Short Throw Projector
The $3499 BenQ V7050i [manufacturer’s link] [available at Amazon] is a 3D-ready (with optional 3D glasses) DLP 4K single-laser ultra short throw projector that runs Google’s Android TV operating system. CinematicColor DCI-P3 helps objects appear more realistic, with accurate colors and subtle gradations, while HDR-PRO technology shows more details in the brightest highlights and the darkest shadows. The automatic “sunroof” on the top opens when the projector is in use and closes when not in use to avoid dust build-up and lens exposure.
70″ – 123″ diagonal clear image size. For a 100″ diagonal image/screen (according to the diagram and information provided in the installation guide), you will need to place the projector about 8.7″ from the wall (see How to Place the Laser TV Projector YouTube video) on top of a stand which supports the 15.2″ depth of the projector and extends at least 24″ from the wall and measures ideally somewhere between 13.2″ to 17.2″ in height. The bottom of the 87.2″ wide by 49″ high projected image/screen will be about 15.8″ above the surface where the projector sits. (see How to Complete Screen Adjustment YouTube video) That’s about 7 feet total in height minimum required from the floor to the top of the image/screen.
Projector brightness is rated 2500 ANSI lumens. 20,000 hour laser life. Input lag is rated 83.34ms (1080p@60Hz), so it does not support low input delay crucial for first-person shooter and fighting games. Two remote controls with batteries are included — one for the projector and the other for the included Android TV dongle (see How to Connect Android TV Dongle and Power Cord YouTube video). Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2. Connectivity includes two HDMI (one will be utilized by the ATV dongle)/ARC, USB, RS-232, and optical digital audio output. 5-watt x 2 built-in speakers. Projector dimensions are 19″ wide, 6.18″ high, and 15.2″ deep, and it weighs 22 pounds. 3-year limited warranty.
