BenQ Launches EW800ST Education Projector

BenQ ew800st projector
BenQ has launched the EW800ST, an education projector with Google cloud account integration, screen-mirroring and wired as well as wireless connectivity for K-12 classrooms. Using its Dust Guard technology and Lamp Save mode, the short-throw projector also includes X-Sign Broadcast, a centralized messaging and display-scheduling system.

The 1280×800 resolution 1-chip DLP EW800ST’s user interface is optimized for education and interaction, providing intuitive content navigation in addition to the traditional projector remote control. Featuring intuitive human interface device support, EW800ST lets students and teachers navigate educational content not only with a traditional mouse or keyboard, but also from any device via the BenQ Smart Control app. Equipped with the onboard BenQ Suggest app store, users can also download a variety of smart apps, including web browsers for lessons generated right from the projector. For example, teachers can perform instant internet searches without accessing a separate computer and disrupting the flow of the class.

The EW800ST is equipped with BenQ’s Lamp Save Mode for up to 15,000 hours but it does use a 200-watt UHP lamp — it’s not laser. It’s specified at 3,300 lumens.
