Known as BenQ W20000 and W5000, the projectors are equipped with BenQ’s exclusive Senseye Technology, Texas Instruments’ 1080p DLP DMD chipset (DarkChip3 & DarkChip2 respectively), Philips’ ViDi lighting technology and HQV (Holly Quality Video) high-performance video processor at a high 20000:1 (10000:1 for W5000) contrast ratio.
Both the models boast to work flawlessly with a wide range of devices, ranging from conventional VCR to the latest HD DVD and Blu-ray DVD players. By using the Dual Iris technology, they enhance image contrast and make bright images brighter and dark images darker, delivering high quality visuals.

They are compatible with multiple video formats that include 480p, 576p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p and three memory slots. The projectors produce precise colors to match their real-life appearance with the difference most apparent in blue and red hues.
