COSTA MESA, Calif. — BenQ, an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions, is receiving critical acclaim for its commitment to delivering the most realistic, user-friendly golfing experience for at-home and commercial golf simulation. The first company to design a laser projector for the golf simulation market, BenQ’s Blue Core laser golf simulation projectors — including the recently announced 4K UHD LK953ST and WUXGA LU935ST short-throw projectors — boast a long-lasting, color-accurate image; tools that make installation anywhere a breeze; and a lamp-free, filter-free, IP5X-certified sealed laser engine that requires zero maintenance.
“There’s a reason that golf courses like Pebble Beach, Kapalua, and Pinehurst are favorites — they’re stunning,” said Bob Wudeck, senior director of business development at BenQ America Corp. “As the golf simulation market heats up, golfers want their picture to be as close as possible to what they’d see on these fairways in real life. In side-by-side comparisons with the brightest projectors available from other manufacturers, BenQ’s Blue Core laser projectors deliver the most realistic and immersive picture.”
“The color is awesome. They pop on the screen. It’s absolutely incredible.” — Garage Golf
In developing its leading lineup of gaming and professional photography and video monitors and professional displays, BenQ has put the focus on color accuracy as a critical element to creating an immersive experience. That same commitment drives the company’s Blue Core golf simulation projectors. While most projector manufacturers choose a saturated color tone bias toward increased colorfulness — resulting in color accuracy loss — BenQ fully achieves the Rec. 709 color standard that never yellows. This creates the most realistic image with no oversaturation. When combined with BenQ’s millions of pixels and high lumen output, golfers will get the most out of their golf simulator.
“I see a huge difference in the crispness of the image and the overall brightness with vivid colors.” — Golf Simulator Videos
Golf simulators are being placed anywhere they can be fit — basements, garages, and a variety of other residential and commercial spaces. With that in mind, BenQ wanted to make installation anywhere as easy as possible. The company’s golf simulation projectors feature many built-in installation mechanisms, including optical zoom that eliminates the expense of separate lenses that can easily tack on thousands of dollars to the base price and allows the projector to be mounted safely outside the hitting area without the player casting a shadow on the screen; digital shrink and offset to ensure a crisp, edge-to-edge picture that fills the screen when mounted further away; lens shift for projectors that need to be mounted off to the side; keystone correction and corner fit for a perfectly centered image; as well as multiple HDMI inputs and networking and audio I/Os. Together, these features ensure a great golfing experience and enable users to build a system that can double as a stunning home theater.
“I wanted a very immersive experience. The No. 1 decision you’ve got to make is how it’s going to look. BenQ’s laser golf simulator projector is a massive difference maker.” — Chip Eichelberger, CSP, Top Interactive Motivational Speaker
Finally, BenQ’s Blue Core lasers are designed to eliminate the hassle and cost of installing replacement lamps — a cost that is getting increasingly more expensive as the market transitions to laser — while providing long-lasting, 20,000-hour life with a consistent color performance. BenQ’s ultra-reliable laser engine has immediate start up and shut down, which allows users to start playing right away without waiting for a lamp to warm up and removes the risk of the lamp breaking if not properly cooled down. In addition, the sealed engine is IP5X-rated, a certification given to the most popular and rigorously tested mobile and smart watch technology available today — ensuring dust doesn’t damage the projector. It doesn’t require filters, which poorly protect sensitive components and require regular cleaning. If it’s installed in a dust-prone environment, such as a garage or basement, the dustproof design ensures that nothing will compromise its performance or longevity.
The LK953ST and LU935ST laser projectors, among other options, are now available at many simulation resellers and BenQ.com.
