Panamorph Paladin Anamorphic Lens
All of today’s BenQ native 4K 16:9 projectors have been designed and engineered for easy and direct attachment of a Panamorph Paladin lens with XMB attachment kit to deliver 2 million more pixels of brightness and detail when displaying the UltraWide cinema movie format. That’s over 1.2 million more pixels than a commercial cinema for maximum performance and movie experience with no black bars; no moving parts and even multiple modes for showing 16:9 content – all instantly at the push of a button on the remote.
The Paladin lens system is shown in most BenQ online feature descriptions. Simple selections using the “Aspect” remote button include “Anamorphic 2.4:1” to display movies filling your entire 2.4:1 (or 2.35:1) cinema format screen and “Anamorphic 16:9” to display TV content properly formatted in the center of the screen with black on left and right. As a third option the “16:9” mode will even fully fill your cinema format screen with TV content stretched out. Most importantly, your throw distance from projector to screen should be at least 1.6 times your screen width. Welcome to UltraWide!. See more info here. Ask for best price.
