New SH960 1080p Projector Ideal for Multiple Applications and Environments

IRVINE, Calif. - - May 12, 2011 - - BenQ, the number one DLP® Projector brand in the world, today announced that its new top -of -the -line SH960 high brightness projector will be shipping in time for InfoComm 2011 and featured at the company's booth, 943, at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, June 15 -17.


Designed for use in the most demanding settings, the new SH960 utilizes 1080p native resolution and BrilliantColor(TM) technology, creating the brightest and most vibrant images on any surface. With brightness of 5500 ANSI lumens, the SH960 projects brilliant images even in the presence of ambient light.

"For many professional applications as well as viewers who would like to enjoy a ballgame or movie with the lights on, projection does not come in a more vibrant and crystal -clear display than with the SH960," said Mitch Rauch, associate vice president at BenQ America Corp. "We've combined extraordinary brightness with 1080p native resolution to enable stunning image quality even in settings where ambient light is difficult to control."

The SH960 is equipped with a 3000:1 contrast ratio and a native 16:9 aspect ratio with a full 1.07 billion -color palette. The projector's dual -lamp design allows users to opt for maximum brightness or choose an eco -mode that extends lamp life by up to 30 percent. H+V Lens Shift technology gives users great flexibility in projector placement, allowing the focal point of the lens to be adjusted in venues where dead -center placement isn't possible. BenQ's proprietary Wall Color Correction feature allows users to adjust the projector's output for natural -looking color even on tinted walls.

The SH960 will be available in June and has an MSRP of $6,999.

The SH960 is just one of the industry -leading professional A/V projection systems on display at the BenQ booth, where the company will make its InfoComm debut with a major exhibit.
