BenQ America has introduced three new projectors aimed at the ProAV market in the PX9710, PW9620 and PU9730, spec’d at 7,700, 7,000, and 6,700 ANSI lumens and XGA (1024×768), WXGA (1280×800), and WUXGA (1920×1200) resolutions, respectively. All the projectors have a 2800:1 contrast ratio.
To increase setup convenience for installers, the P-Series models are equipped with two interchangeable color wheels (RGBYCW and RGBYCM) that allow users to pick between brightness or color accuracy and also seven optional interchangeable lenses are offered ranging from wide fix to long zoom sizes. In addition, the projectors offer 360-degree horizontal projection, motorized zoom, focus and lens shifting, built-in test patterns, integrated filtration system, LED indicators, and multi-projector management via LAN.
Inputs include HDMI, DisplayPort, USB, RS-232 (control), RGBHV on BNCs and HDBaseT connectivity which transmits audio and video over a single cable across distances up to 328 feet. Taking the setup simplicity even further, the projectors provide installers with a lens-memory option for instant storage of up to 10 different settings, a center-lens hotkey to centralize the units’ lenses, and mechanical shutter capabilities that turn today’s fast-moving images into more fluid content. Managers can also change the units’ color wheels and 350W dual lamps from a top access door while the series’ optimized 10-fan cooling system ensures that the high brightness projectors always run at optimum temperatures.
