BenQ Launches Color Vibrant Portable LED Business Projector

New CH100 Presentation Projector Impresses with sRGB Picture Quality and Mobile Versatility

COSTA MESA, Calif. -- Aug. 4, 2016 -- BenQ America Corp., the No.1 DLP(R) projector brand worldwide, today announced the availability of the CH100, the company's first portable LED projector designed to let big ideas shine with brilliant color performance in a compact, fuss-free form factor. Delivering sRGB Colorific(TM) fidelity and full HD 1080p resolution, the CH100 brings presentations to life with realistic pictures and vibrant colors, enabling creative and business professionals such as web designers, graphic artists, and other visionary storytellers to give unforgettable pitches. With short throw functionality for easy placement and five picture modes for any business presentation situation, the portable CH100 activates instantly to project a professional impression anytime, anywhere.


"We're passionate about color accuracy, which is essential to any visionary trying to bring an idea to life," said J.Y. Hu, vice president, business line management at BenQ America Corp. "Utilizing our Colorific technology, the CH100 projector delivers uncompromising picture quality that accurately reflects the creative vision of professionals in a form factor they can take anywhere to guarantee one-of-a-kind presentations."

Covering an exceptionally wide color gamut of 90% NTSC, the CH100 reproduces the reliable sRGB color standard to ensure presentations accurately preserve colors the way they are intended. Its high-contrast full HD 1080p performance generates pristine, detailed images enhanced by five picture modes -- Graphic sRGB, Motion Graphics, Lectures, Vivid Color, and Cinema settings -- making the CH100 equally adept in a variety of business applications or for movie night with family or friends.

Powered by a durable 20,000-hour lamp-free LED light source that minimizes color decay, the CH100 is a long-lasting, smart investment that never needs lamp replacement to preserve its excellent presentation quality. The LED light source produces highly saturated colors, triggering the Helmholtz-Kohlrausch effect to boost the CH100's perceived brightness to appear twice as bright as its 1,000 ANSI lumen rating and deliver a comfortable viewing experience.

The CH100 is approximately the same size of a 13-inch laptop, making this entertainment and presentation powerhouse small enough to easily slip into a portfolio. It packs a rich set of connectivity options into its small real estate, including three HDMI inputs with one doubling as an MHL port, which allows users to unchain their media from their mobile device and seamlessly display videos, games or photos on the big screen. The LED projector turns on instantly and features automatic aspect ratio, keystone and source detection. With virtually silent 30dBA operation, the portable device immediately engages the audience's full attention with quick, hassle-free startup to make an immaculate professional statement that's complemented with built-in 10-watt speakers for full audio presentation.

For successful client meetings regardless of location, the CH100 is equipped with short-throw capability to project large 81-inch images from just 6-feet away. Additionally, an optional QCast wireless full HD 1080p streaming dongle, which stows neatly into a concealed compartment for a sleek look, allows any iOS(R) or Android(TM) smart device to control the projection experience, enabling untethered collaboration where the presenter and audience may move around and interact freely.

The BenQ CH100 is now shipping at a retail price of $1,799. More information on the full line of BenQ products is available at www.BenQ.us.
