Contrast Enhancement
A Unique, Two-Step Image Enhancement Process: BenQ's Dual Iris Technology.

When you are watching a really great movie, there are certain times when high contrast ratio can make all the difference, places like: the darkest reaches of outer-space, the skies high above the battlefield, a haunted house or inside an Egyptian pyramid. With high contrast ratio, everything is clear. You can see all of the details. Without it, you're just in the dark.

In order to provide you with the most detailed image possible, the BenQ W5000 enhances image contrast via its Dual Iris technology. Here's how dual iris technology works:

Step One: Advanced Continuous Electronic Iris – An Electronic Iris with Different Preset Modes.
For optimal viewing, the BenQ W5000 comes with 4 viewing modes (Cinema, Dynamic, Standard, and Photo) that you can select, plus 3 memory slots that you can calibrate to your own preferred settings.

The advanced continuous electronic iris works like your own eye. It widens and narrows, letting out as much light as necessary to match the selected contrast range.

Step Two:DynamicBlack™
Together with Texas Instruments' DynamicBlack™, BenQ contrast technology provides a second level of Iris control that enhances contrast based on the exact image being shown. Darkened scenes? No problem. DynamicBlack™ digitally examines source video to determine the appropriate iris aperture for the level of light present in a given scene and open and close the projector iris accordingly. When it's darker, the iris closes to boost contrast. When it's lighter, the iris will open. So, you'll see everything.
