The BenQ SH940 DLP Digital Projector is designed to project high-definition images with enough brightness to work in settings with high-ambient light.

With full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution and 4000 ANSI lumens of brightness at a 50,000:1 contrast ratio, the projector will work in any environment. The SH940 can deliver 720p, 1080i and 1080p high definition signals from cable boxes, Blu-ray players and more. And those images will stay in digital form (no analog conversion required) along the path between the device and the projector thanks to its two HDMI 1.3 inputs.

The SH940's Hollywood Quality Video (HQV) makes even 480i signals look almost as good as high definition. The part that forms the picture in this projector is a Texas Instruments DLP DMD panel. Unlike other technologies such as LCD that use just three primary colors to produce the image, DLP Technology uses up to six separate colors to create the best image.

The projector is capable of operating in different regions of the world because it has a 100 to 240 VAC, 50/60Hz power supply, and has the ability to handle NTSC, PAL, and SECAM video signals. The SH940 is energy efficient; it uses only 442W to project its super bright image and in standby mode it draws less than a watt.

Premium Full HD 1080p Resolution
The SH940 supports multiple video formats including 480p, 576p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p - giving you the flexibility to present video formats with full HD quality. The BenQ SH940 delivers 5X more detail than traditional 480p projectors
1.5x Zoom for Projector Installation Flexibility
The SH940's 1.5x big zoom feature opens up space with a wide range of throw distances
Lens Shift Gives Extra Room for Minor Miscalculations
Lens shift offers the extra flexibility to overcome any minor miscalculations during projector installation. All you have to do is adjust the switch next to the lens to shift the projected image left or right by 40% or up or down by 125% within the projector housing
Hollywood Quality Video (HQV) Processing
HQV converts standard definition (SD) and regular HD video sources to full HD-like image quality with 80% precisely scaled picture quality. HQV works with both analog and digital video sources
Vivid Color Reproduction
The projector features a 6-segment color wheel to produce realistic color depth and range unattainable with lesser segment color wheels
Rich Gray-Scale
When viewed in a darkened environment, the automatic gamma control provides gray-scale display which reveals details in shadows and in night or darkened scenes
0.5W in Standby Mode
When inactive, the SH940 keeps power consumption to a minimum with 0.5W standby power
Wide Variety of Inputs and Video Formats
The projector supports a wide variety of inputs for connection to other equipment including component video, composite video, HDMI, and VGA, and also an output trigger for connection to automated screen and environment lighting systems
Professional Calibration Control
To reach a higher standard of performance, the projector incorporates expert mode settings in its OSD menus, which requires professional calibration service from authorized installers
Panamorph Lenses Compatible
The projector is compatible with Panamorph lenses that allow you to convert 16:9 projectors to 2.35:1 aspect ratio
Remote Maintenance with Crestron RoomView
The SH940 is Crestron RoomView-supported to provide IT personnel and projector managers real-time, central access and control over a single projector or groups of projectors simultaneously via a single station
