BenQ, provider of visual display solutions, has a projector built for at-home and commercial golf simulators. It is the latest in its BlueCore Laser DLP® lineup. The WUXGA 5,500-lumen LU935ST short-throw laser projector features 92% Rec.709 color coverage for realistic golf course images, 20,000 hours of maintenance-free use, and features that allow for an easy, flexible installation.
Bob Wudeck, senior director of business development at BenQ America Corp., said in a statement: “While LCD lamp-based projectors have been used in old golf simulation kits, lamps are climbing in price, have a shorter life span, pose a mercury risk, require filter cleaning, and typically don’t provide color accuracy specifications. The LU935ST is the first laser projector that’s designed for golf simulation. It boasts an immersive, life-like image that turns on instantly, is easy to install, and has zero upkeep, thanks to its filter-free, dustproof design.”
For color accuracy and realism, the projector utilizes the same 92% Rec. 709 color space coverage as the BenQ premium 4K UHD LK953ST laser projector. It features Texas Instruments’ DLP chip technology for a picture with 2.3 million pixels as well as a 3,000,000:1 contrast.
BenQ’s LU935ST can be housed in any space with easy-to-install features. The short-throw optical zoom provides .81-.89 throw, without the expense of optional lenses, and allows the projector to be mounted safely outside the hitting area without the player casting a shadow on the screen.
