The BenQ LU935ST, the newest projector in the company’s BlueCore Laser DLP lineup, was purpose built for at-home and commercial golf simulators. Available for $3,999 MSRP, the WUXGA 5,500-lumen short-throw laser projector features 92-percent Rec.709 color coverage for realistic golf course images, 20,000 hours of maintenance-free use, and robust features for easy, flexible installation.
“The golf simulation market has grown dramatically as golfers look for ways to keep their swing in the best form when they can’t get to the course,” said Bob Wudeck, senior director of business development at BenQ America Corp. “While LCD lamp-based projectors have been used in old golf simulation kits, lamps are climbing in price, have a shorter life span, pose a mercury risk, require filter cleaning, and typically don’t provide color accuracy specifications.”

The LU935ST is the first laser projector that’s designed for golf simulation. It boasts 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 LU935ST Helps Perfect a Golf Swing with Realistic Color
A great golf stroke demands focus, which can be lost in golf simulation if the picture is unrealistic. BenQ’s LU935ST provides an immersive image at an unbeatable value. It delivers improved color accuracy and realism utilizing the same 92-percent Rec. 709 color space coverage as the BenQ premium 4K UHD LK953ST laser projector.
Leveraging Texas Instruments’ DLP chip technology, the LU935ST’s picture boasts 2.3 million pixels and features a 3,000,000:1 contrast. The result is more true-to-life and detailed golf courses that never yellow over time. BenQ utilizes the same monitor technology that helps gamers gain a competitive edge, including enhanced graphics and instant lag-free response to shots.
Easy to Install in Any Room
BenQ’s LU935ST makes the best use of any space with easy-to-install features. The short-throw optical zoom provides 0.81-0.89 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.
Finally, for greater installation flexibility without affecting the image, the LU935ST includes lens shift and other fine-tuning installation tools, including horizontal and vertical keystone correction, corner fit, multiple HDMI inputs, and networking and audio I/O.
How BenQ’s LU935ST Can Claim Maintenance-Free Performance
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. LU935ST’s users can start playing right away without waiting for a lamp to warm up or the risk of the lamp breaking if not properly cooled down. In addition, the LU935ST’s certified IP5X-rated sealed engine eliminates filters and the need for regular cleaning that’s necessary on other popular projectors sold today. If it’s installed in a dust-prone environment, such as a garage or basement, the dustproof design ensures that nothing will compromise its performance.
The LU935ST laser projector is now available at many simulation resellers and BenQ.com. BenQ’s trained staff is ready to provide golfers the tools needed to find the best option for their setups.
