BenQ Adds Large Venue Projector Line

BenQ America Corp. today announced its new M7 Series of high-brightness, high-performance projectors. Designed for education and other large-venue settings, the product line comprised of the MX720, MW721, MX722, MX766, and MW767 features up to 4,200 ANSI lumens of brightness, contrast ratios extending to 13,000:1, and power-saving technology to cut energy consumption by up to 70 percent. The higher-end models include features such as USB camera integration and remote desktop capabilities to facilitate classroom management, wireless display for cable-free connections and projection templates to make presentations easier.

With 3,500 (MX720 and MW721), 4,000 (MX722 and MX766), and 4,200 (MW767) ANSI lumens of light, the projectors offer astounding brightness within any ambient light setting. The projectors feature XGA (MX720, MX722 and MX766) and WXGA (MW721 and MW767) native resolutions for sharp images, built-in 10-watt or 20-watt speakers and a six-segment color wheel to cast lifelike images onto the screen.

Lowering total cost of ownership (TCO), all models feature an “Eco Blank” mode, allowing presenters to blank out the projection screen whenever the projector is not in use. To further reduce energy costs, the MX720, MW721, MX766, and MW767 use BenQ’s SmartEco technology to enable power-saving features. In the “SmartEco” mode, the projector automatically adjusts lamp power by up to 70 percent — using just the right amount of brightness that is needed. A “No Source Detected” mode automatically lowers brightness to 30 percent when no display has been detected for more than three minutes, while a “Standby” mode lowers power consumption to less than 0.5W while the projectors are inactive. In addition, the M7 Series features an audio pass through function that further preserves lamp life by enabling just sound for audio-only podcasts or presentations.

For complete connectivity, the M7 Series features LAN Display for full projection management via a single LAN cable, dual HDMI and D-sub ports to enable inputs from several sources, and DLP Link support for 3D projection. Other features include “instant restart,” which allows rapid rebooting when devices are accidentally switched off and a microphone input to facilitate setups by eliminating the need to carry speakers.

Available now, the BenQ MX720, MW721, MX722, MX766 and MW767 retail at $1,299, $1,499, $1,499, $2,199 and $2,399, respectively.
