BenQ's New HT2150ST Home Entertainment Projector is Perfect for Tight Spaces

Short-Throw Projector Combines Colorific Performance and Low Input Lag For a Breathtaking, Big-Screen Experience With Complete Installation Flexibility

COSTA MESA, Calif. -- Aug. 25, 2016 -- BenQ America Corp., the global No.1 DLP(R) brand, today unveiled its latest Colorific(TM) home entertainment projector, the HT2150ST. Engineered to bring big-screen enjoyment to any space, the HT2150ST short-throw, high brightness, full HD 1080p projector offers an immersive 100-inch crystal-clear picture at just five feet from the screen.


"The two-piece projection experience is much more immersive than a television screen," said J.Y. Hu, vice president, business line management at BenQ America Corp. "The BenQ HT2150ST expands the screen real estate with powerful short-throw and big zoom capabilities, allowing viewers to enjoy life-sized pictures thanks to its accurate, crisp and long-lasting color performance. With this projector, we've even brought our gaming monitor expertise to the experience -- embedding features like low input lag and faster response time, which casual gamers will appreciate."

The BenQ HT2150ST projector boasts Colorific performance powered by Texas Instruments' long-lasting DLP single-chip technology and 2200 ANSI lumens of brightness. The display offers breathtaking full HD 1080p resolution, a six-segment RGBRGB color wheel with BrilliantColor(TM) technology and a 15000:1 contrast ratio that delivers pristine colors for superb visual performance. Additional HT2150ST benefits include a .69 short-throw ratio and 1.2X zoom ratio capabilities to allow the projector to be placed in tight spaces within five feet from the screen for a hassle-free installation. Its two 20-watt speakers, enhanced with CinemaMaster(TM) Audio+, means customers can expect great stereo sound right from the projector. Engineered for whisper-quiet operation, users' attention will never be pulled away from the screen.

Optimized for console gaming, the HT2150ST projector also features an unbeatable low input lag, empowering gamers to react to every attack without delay. The fast, micro-second DMD response time delivers smooth and quick visuals without motion blur. Additionally, two specialized gaming modes provide visual clarity to fit the ambient lighting of any environment, unearthing hidden details in the darkest shadows and brightest highlights in a dark room or protecting image details in a well-lit room.

The HT2150ST features dual HDMI(R) ports with one doubling as an MHL port, which allows users to unchain media from their mobile devices and seamlessly display videos, games or photos on the big screen. Equipped with BenQ's SmartEco(TM) energy-saving technology, the HT2150ST automatically adjusts lamp brightness based on content, projecting richer blacks and increasing contrast to reveal tiny text and subtle details.

The BenQ HT2150ST projector ships the beginning of Sept. 2016 at a retail price of $1,299.
