Today BenQ launched two new ultra short-throw projectors in the form of the MW860USTi and MP780 ST+, which offer throw ratios of 0.37 and 0.49, respectively. Designed for education applications, they both integrate BenQ’s second-generation PointDraw interactive projection technology with dual pen support, including the new Pen 2.0, which features a faster response time to support remote interactivity up to 25 feet away from the board or projected surface. Dual pen control is supported by the newly designed QDraw 2.0 interactive software, enabling collaboration through simultaneous teacher-student interaction.
Both projectors are single-chip DLP WXGA resolution (1280×768) and have a 20-watt speaker integrated with a mic input, IP control and capability for wireless projection. The MW860USTi and MP780 ST+ are already shipping and list for $2,499 and $2,099 respectively.
