BenQ is shipping the latest in its M6 series, the MW665 projector, which is aimed at houses of worship, classrooms and boardrooms. It offers 3,200 ANSI lumens of brightness, a 13,000:1 contrast ratio and is integrated with SmartEco energy-saving features to lower the projector’s total cost of ownership (TCO).
Featuring BenQ’s Colorific technology and using native WXGA (1280×800) resolution DLP chip, the MW665 includes HDMI, VGA, wired LAN display and control, in addition to wireless connectivity. When paired with the BenQ QPresenter Pro app, participants can collaborate and share documents, photos, and Web content directly from their mobile devices or laptops. And, the MW665 also provides support for AMX, Crestron and PJLink systems.
When using the projector’s SmartEco mode, BenQ says the MW665 automatically adjusts lamp power by up to 70 percent. For environments where the projector has to remain powered on, BenQ’s LumenCare setting enables the unit to maintain constant brightness for the first 2,100 hours of lamp life. To further reduce power consumption, an “Eco Blank” mode allows presenters to blank out the screen whenever projection isn’t needed, while a “No Source Detected” mode automatically lowers brightness to 30 percent when no signal has been detected for more than three minutes. In “Standby” mode, the projector will lower power consumption to less than 0.5 watts during periods of inactivity, providing even greater energy savings and further lowering TCO.
The MW665 is already shipping with a list price of $999 and here are all the specs.
