BenQ HT5550 Overview

Enjoy your video games and multimedia content on a big screen with the BenQ HT5550 HDR 4K UHD Home Theater Projector. It projects UHD 4K resolution onto the screen with compatible content and features HDR10 and HLG compatibility to produce a wide color gamut. It outputs up to 1800 ANSI lumens of brightness and has a 100,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio to help produce details even in dark areas of the image. The projector has two HDMI inputs for connecting your digital HD devices such as a gaming console, Blu-ray player, or cable/satellite box. The HT5550 includes an IR remote control for additional convenience.

CinematicColor Technology

CinematicColor technology uses 100% of the DCI-P3 color space to produce film-like texture and display your movies as the directors originally envisioned.

Enhanced Color Mapping for Natural Hues

This technology is designed to perform precision color rendition to produce lifelike colors automatically tuned to reflect nature when viewing DCI-P3 4K Blu-ray movies.

Factory Calibrated Color Accuracy

The HT5550 is tested and adjusted for D65 color temperature, gamma, black level, white level, neutral gray, RGBCMY color tracking, hue, saturation, brightness, and output based on DCI-P3 and Rec.709. The data from multiple interfaces is compiled for individual factory calibration reports to meet Rec.709 and Delta E<3 performance.

ISFccc Certified Visual Calibration

By incorporating the Imaging Science Foundation's ISFccc Certified Visual Calibration, the image and color performance can be customized for nearly any space, along with pre-set light balance modes for day and night.

Realistic Video Quality with HDR-PRO

Optimized for projection, HDR-PRO technology is engineered to enhance the 4K HDR viewing experience. Using enhanced tone mapping, HDR-PRO provides a broad contrast range to bring out more detail from 4K Blu-rays and streaming content.

Enhanced Tone Mapping Helps Preserve Dark Details

BenQ Enhanced Tone-Mapping uses Active Iris and Dynamic Black technology to help increase the perceived contrast ratio so you can see dark details more clearly. Dynamic Black analyzes a scene's brightness levels to help optimize the light output and contrast, bringing out details in shadows and preventing bright scenes from washout.

HDR Brightness Optimization

HDR brightness optimization helps keep the ideal contrast when projecting different image sizes and against various screen gains most commonly used in home theater to help ensure a greater contrast range and enhanced image quality when HDR Mode is activated.

HDR10 & HLG Support

HDR-PRO technology is powered by the support of the HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) HDR formats for enhanced visuals from a variety of sources.

Optimized Movie Modes

To achieve a personalized home cinema experience, the HT5550 features optimized movie modes that are tailored to help provide authentic cinematic colors in a variety of environments.
  • D.Cinema Mode is designed to provide wide-ranging colors and subtle details in movies that use 100% of the Rec.709 color gamut for enhanced 4K SDR in dark A/V rooms.
  • HDR Mode (with Wide Color Gamut enabled) helps provide high dynamic contrast and true color reproduction based on HDR-PRO technology and up to 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut for 4K HDR Blu-rays and streaming HLG content in dark A/V room settings.
  • Cinema Mode offers heightened brightness to reproduce 100% Rec.709 color accuracy to help you enjoy 1080p movies in rooms with high ambient brightness.
  • HDR Mode is designed for watching 4K HDR Blu-rays and streaming HLG content based on Rec.709 and HDR-PRO technology in higher brightness environments.

Film-Like Motion

To enjoy your movie the way the director intended, the HT5550 supports 24 fps (frames per second) playback, which can accept HD sources without judder in HDR mode to help preserve the purity of the original image, so your 4K movies can be displayed at the correct cadence without the need for pulldowns, which can distort the playback of the source video.

11-Element, 6-Group, All-Glass Lens Array

The 11-element lens array is structured into six groups with metal barrel and cell framework to provide enhanced light penetration for long-lasting intensity with augmented color performance, clarity, and sharpness across the entire screen.

Accurate Color and Image Integrity

With its single-DMD design to help avoid the alignment issues that arise in multi-panel systems, the HT5550 provides sharp images and accurate colors devoid of artifacts, blur, shadowing, and interference patterns.

Enhanced Optics Provide Enhanced Image Quality

The optical system in the HT5550 uses low-dispersion lens coatings to help minimize chromatic aberrations for clear images.

CinemaMaster Video+

This feature uses video-enhancing technologies to help please even critical movie enthusiasts.

4K Pixel Enhancer

The 4K Pixel Enhancer is a motion-adaptive, edge-enhancement feature designed to detect changes in color between an object and its background to help produce sharp edges and precise surface textures.

Motion Enhancer

The Motion Enhancer inserts 36 interpolated frames between sequences to help produce seamless 60 fps videos, eliminating laggy images, jittery playback, and blurry shadows.

Color Enhancer

The Color Enhancer is designed to modulate complex color algorithms to flawlessly render saturated colors, fine gradients, intermediate hues, and subtle pigments.

Flesh Tone

The Flesh Tone feature helps prevent discoloration of skin tones from the light of the projection beam, portraying skin tones naturally.

Minimized Light Leakage

The dustproof design of the HT5550 helps prevent light leakage to reduce distractions.

Patterned Lens Ring and Rearward Lens Tilt

The patterned lens ring and rearward tilt help to further prevent light leakage.

Anti-Dust Lens Hood and Air Intake Louver

The anti-accumulation lens hood reduces the likelihood of falling dust gathering in the projector. The vertical air intake louver also helps prevent dust from getting into the cooling system.

Flexible Adjustment for Screen Alignment

The HT5550 features 1.6x zoom with horizontal and vertical lens shift to help provide hassle-free installation.

    Great picture quality, wish the blacks were darker

    Posted by Unknown on 7th Mar 2023

    Headline pretty much sums it up, the projector has an excellent picture. In a light controlled room, the projector excels, though the dynamic iris is fairly noisy. The best feature of the projector is the excellent lens shift.

    The centerpiece of my home theater

    Posted by Unknown on 7th Mar 2023

    This is a really great projector if you can control the light in your room. It can work with some lights on but it really shines in a properly darkened room. The picture looks great. I love the built-in sharpening and how good it makes my collection of 1080p blu-ray's look.
