BenQ’s Intros New MH530 Colorific Home Projector

MH530-0516BenQ America today introduced the latest addition to its Colorific home entertainment projector lineup, the MH530. The MH530 is native 1920×1080, has SmartEco technology, 3D functionality and HDMI connectivity.

The MH530 is spec’d to have 10,000:1 contrast ratio and 3,200 ANSI lumens of brightness. The BenQ SmartEco technology uses what they call dynamic power saving that claims to save up to 70 percent of lamp power consumption and lower maintenance costs. The unit’s “SmartEco” mode adjusts lamp power to maximize energy savings by using only as much light as needed. Since projector lamp replacement costs make up the biggest part of the total cost of projector ownership, the unit’s “Lamp Save” mode is designed to dynamically adjust lamp power based on content brightness levels. This extends projector lamp life by 50 percent and up to 10,000 hours. The “No Source Detected” mode reduces power consumption by automatically adjusting power consumption to 30 percent when no source is detected for more than three minutes. When inactive, the MH530 keeps power consumption to a minimum at 0.5 watts standby power.

Th MH530 is shipping now and lists for $999. Here are all the specs.
