Laser Golf Simulation
Global projector brand BenQ has just released the first laser projector designed for golf simulation.
THE GOLF SIMULATION MARKET has grown dramatically and continues to inspire golfers looking to keep their swing in the best form possible. Older LCD lamp-based projectors involved a lot of maintenance, with replacement lamps often hard to come by, short bulb life spans, and let’s face it – the color and image accuracy left a lot to be desired. A great golf stroke demands focus, which can be lost in golf simulation if the picture is unrealistic.
Leveraging Texas Instruments’ DLP chip technology trusted by digital cinema theaters and producing award-winning image quality, global projector brand BenQ has just released the first laser projector designed for golf simulation. It provides an immersive, life-like image that turns on instantly, is easy to install, and has zero upkeep, thanks to its filter-free, dustproof design. BenQ’s Blue Core laser eliminates the hassle and cost of installing replacement lamps while providing long-lasting 20,000-hour life with consistent color performance.
Best of all, the new short-throw laser projector features easy, flexible installation. There are typically few options when choosing where to house a golf simulator. It may be in the garage, a home theater or tucked into an unused wall of a home or business. BenQ’s new LU935ST projector makes the best use of 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. In spaces where the projector will need to be mounted farther away, it includes digital shrink and offset to ensure a crisp, edge-to-edge picture that fills the screen.
The new BenQ short-throw laser projector delivers an excellent image that will engage golfers throughout the year. And don’t forget, this stunning short-throw project also doubles as a great home theater unit – at a very competitive $3,995 price point.
