BenQ’s New M7 Projector Is Entry-Level Priced

benq-m7-0215BenQ America today announced of a new 1-chip DLP projector series dubbed the M7. The MX723, MX726 and MW727 projectors all feature up to 4,200 ANSI lumens of brightness, a 13,000:1 contrast ratio, integrate BenQ’s SmartEco technology, include a mobile high-definition link (MHL) connector as well as dual HDMI support and have keystone correction.

Designed for any classroom, boardroom, or home theater environment, BenQ’s MX723, MX726 and MW727 projectors provide 3,700, 4,000, and 4,200 ANSI lumens of brightness and each are spec’d to have a 13,000:1 contrast ratio.

Equipped with something called LAN Display, the M7 Series allows audio and video signals to be carried to the projectors over a single LAN cable. Equipped with BenQ’s SmartEco technology, M7 Series lower TCO by setting projectors to “Smart Eco” mode so that the projectors automatically adjust lamp power by up to 70 percent in order to use just the right amount of brightness needed. To further reduce power consumption, an “Eco Blank” mode allows teachers or presenters to blank out the screen whenever projection isn’t required, while a “No Source Detected” mode automatically lowers brightness to 30 percent when no display has been detected for more than three minutes. After twenty minutes of inactivity, the projectors automatically shut down to save power.

Available now, the BenQ MX723, MX726, and MW727 retail at $1,199, $1,299, and $1,499 respectively. Here are all the specs.
