BenQ is bringing the golf driving range and home theater experience together in one space. The Taiwanese manufacturer says that immersive and “ultra-realistic” golf simulation and home theater can be achieved with its line of BlueCore laser golf simulator projectors, namely the 4K LK953ST and WUXGA LU935ST.
“Putting in a projector solely to be used for golf simulation isn’t always a feasible option for homeowners needing to make the most of their home’s limited square footage, entertainment space, and budget, which is why a SimTheater is a great option,” said Bob Wudeck, senior director of business development at BenQ America Corp. “However, in order to achieve both an immersive golf experience and replicate the box-office movie quality, color accuracy is critical. We leveraged our decades of expertise that make our laser home theater projectors and eSports monitors best sellers to create a new generation of projectors that satisfy golf enthusiasts and golden eyes alike.”
Golfers are taking simulation more seriously to improve technique, according to BenQ, and adoption of affordable systems is on the rise. Following on from the 4K and 5,000-lumen LK953ST, BenQ has now built the brighter 5500-lumen LU935ST model (WUXGA resolution at 1920 x 1200). Both projectors feature 92% of Rec. 709 color space and 20k hours of lamp life, as well as single-DLP chip tech primed for both golf sim and movie-watching.
The Blue Core laser projectors are necessarily bright enough for photographing and analyzing hits without a washed-out look. Built-in short-throw lenses eliminate the need for expensive add-ons required by other products, and allow the projectors to be mounted out of a swing zone and closer to a screen without casting a shadow. Both projectors also deploy IP5X-rated sealed light engines for full protection in dust-prone environments, such as garages and basements. BenQ says it has trained staff available to help customers find the right projector for specific rooms and budgets.
