BenQ has introduced its new LK935 4K UHD projector, designed for hybrid meetings and offering a 21:9 experience, HDR10 support, and 24/7 usage rating.
The 5,500 lumen LK935 projector features a dense pixel count of 1,149 pixels per square inch (PPI2) on a 130” screen, 21:9 aspect ratio, 92% Rec.709 colour coverage, and conferencing colour modes. There’s also HDR support to ensure text, video, images, graphs, and other content is presented in the high quality necessary to achieve productive meetings.
“The hybrid meeting ushers in a new paradigm,” says Bob Wudeck, Senior Director of Business Development at BenQ. “One where much more complex content is being presented simultaneously — multiple video conference feeds of people, other video, design work and photographs, intricate reports, chat boxes, and much more.
“Not only does everything need to be presented in the new 21:9 screen format,” he continues, “but also depicted with the same clarity and richness as the original content. The LK935 is the first 21:9 projector at this price point to offer extreme pixel density and accuracy so that all content — hair colour, skin tones, and other critical details — appear as they should. Until now, businesses had to invest $20,000 in a projector capable of delivering this level of quality. The LK935 is now available for less than $4,500.”
While most business WUXGA projectors are designed only to replicate one content format at a time, such as text, the LK935 21:9 projector can reproduce many forms of content simultaneously, says BenQ. This includes text, video, images, graphs, and more, in the best quality. This ensures that every piece of content is easily comprehended.
The LK935 is the first 21:9 projector in its price range to deliver larger, more pixel-dense content at 1,149 PPI2, says BenQ, which is almost four times the pixel density of most WUXGA projectors at 303 PPI2 on a 130” screen.
With the LK935 projector, BenQ leverages its years of expertise in the detail-oriented cinematic, medical, and esports markets to deliver 92% Rec.709 colour accuracy. The result is that participants’ skin tone and hair colour appear clear and accurate, and other content is depicted as the creator intended. The projector’s Video Conference Mode automatically optimizes the accuracy of skin tone and hair colour for a more immersive meeting experience. With HDR support, the LK935 is also able to read and display content with HDR metadata, projecting video with accurate secondary colours and high pixel density that is as close as possible to the original.
In order to attain the perfect image in any room, BenQ has equipped all its projectors with tools that make installation and setup quick and easy. The LK935 features a big 1.6x zoom to allow installers to replace outdated projectors without repositioning existing ceiling mounts, vertical/horizontal lens shift to move the image up and down, and 3D keystone correction range of up to ±40° on both the horizontal and vertical axes.
Like all BenQ projectors in its laser family, the LK935 eliminates the hassle and cost of installing replacement lamps. It features a long-lasting 20,000-hour laser light source life that ensures no risk of the image yellowing over time. It’s robust enough to support 24/7 applications with no usage or warranty restrictions. It also has an IP5X-rated, sealed DustGuard laser engine that is dustproof and eliminates the need for ineffective filters. The result is a long-lasting projector where organizations don’t have to spend money on labour and maintenance, achieving a much greater ROI.
The LK935 is HDBaseT compatible, transmitting video, audio, RS-232, and LAN control signals from multiple sources such as PCs, laptops, document cameras, and DVD/Blu-ray players using a single RJ-45 cable. For convenient system integration into corporate network infrastructures, it is compatible with leading projector control systems, such as Extron, Crestron, and PJ-Link. It also comes with BenQ’s DMS to remotely oversee and monitor an organization’s fleet of projectors, including those from other companies, with ease.
