Senseye™ Contrast Enhancement
The W500 maintains high contrast, whatever's on screen and wherever you're watching.

An eye to great viewing
The W500 features an iris-like lens design that mimics our own eye, adjusting the aperture after analyzing the incoming video signal. The aperture is contracted during dark scenes for truer black tones and enhanced detail, while it is enlarged for bright scenes to maximize light output and enable a wider dynamic range. No matter what type of content is on, the W500 ensures that you get the very best viewing experience.

Senseye™ Clarity Enhancement
The W500 is designed to give you pristine HD-quality video even when the source is noise-ridden SD.

The W500 not only converts SD content such as analog TV broadcasts to HD-quality video, but it analyzes an amazing 1,024 pixels in the source for each pixel in the final HD version for native HD-like picture quality.

Stop the noise
The W500 analyzes multiple frames in source video to identify and then eliminate pixels giving rise to visual noise, and also corrects for distortions resulting from too much compression.

Senseye™ Motion Optimization
The W500 remedies shortcomings in regular projectors when it comes to handling fast-changing video content.

Make the "jaggies" go away
Sophisticated Multi-Dimensional Diagonal Filtering (MDDF) technology smoothes away the "jaggies" that crop up along the edges of moving objects-even those lying at shallow angles of 5° to 7° while regular filters can only handle larger angles from 30° to 45°.

Look deeper
To remove artifacts around moving objects that result when converting interlaced SD video to non-interlaced HD video, the W500 examines twice as much data-four fields instead of the usual two-using advanced "motion-adaptive de-interlacing".

Senseye™ Color Management
Getting the widest possible range of colors and displaying them with precision accuracy is another key advantage of the W500.

Color correctly
The W500 achieves greater color accuracy by handling each color signal in the video input individually, applying its brightness value directly in rendering the video. In contrast, regular projectors use a sampling process, which inevitably results in a loss of information about specific color signals and color distortion in the final projection image.

Easy Installation and ease of use
Despite its rich feature set and flexible configuration options, the W500 makes getting things just right sublimely easy. And not only brings together the features you need, it's a genuine pleasure to use.
