COSTA MESA, Calif. — July 13, 2015 — BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions and the No. 1-selling projector brand powered by TI DLP® technology in The Americas(1), today introduced its all-new M6 Series projectors. Designed with exceptional brightness capabilities, easy installation options, and BenQ’s renowned Colorific™ picture quality, the company’s MX631ST and MW632ST short-throw projectors deliver an impressive 3200 lumens of brightness with an outstanding 13,000:1 contrast ratio, and a long list of standard features, such as SmartEco™ power-saving technology, auto keystone setup tools, expanded connectivity options, and the ability to fill up to a 100-inch screen at a mere six feet away — unleashing magnificent content viewing experiences and uncompromising value for any small- to medium-sized space.
“Our new M6 Series projectors are the ultimate all-in-one solutions made for today’s small- to medium-sized spaces,” said Felix Pimentel, Senior Product Marketing Manager for BenQ America Corp. “Combining Colorific picture quality, seamless setup tools, and the ability to instantly connect to today’s wide ecosystem of portable devices, now anyone within the home or office can unleash big screen entertainment directly from the palm of their hand. With up to 10,000 hours of lamp life, customers are finally able to leverage the market’s most advanced projector innovations without compromising cost of ownership.”
BenQ’s XGA MX631ST and WXGA-resolution MW632ST short-throw projectors allow users to easily set up the devices within any small-scale area. Featuring 1.2x zoom capabilities and auto keystone to further streamline the setup process, the Colorific duo includes a powerful acoustically balanced 10W speaker to fill the room with sound, while dual HDMI® slots allow for seamless switching of digital sources for instant input from any entertainment endpoint. Leveraging Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) technology, the MX631ST and MW632ST let customers stream small-screen content directly from any compatible mobile phone or tablet to the projector.
Both the MX631ST and MW632ST are equipped with BenQ’s Colorific image quality that optimizes the color palette for specific media such as presentations, movies, or photographs. Generating over 1 billion colors to create vibrant, true-to-life images, the technology produces incredibly clear visual impact year after year — without the risk of colors fading, image burn-in issues, or image yellowing over time.
Equipped with BenQ’s SmartEco technology, M6 Series users are able to experience brightness, innovation, and amazing performance while further reducing the total cost of ownership through lamp life of up to 10,000 hours and no filters to clean or replace. By setting projectors to “Smart Eco” mode, the units automatically adjust lamp power by up to 70 percent in order to use just the right amount of brightness. To further reduce power consumption, an “Eco Blank” mode allows users 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 20 minutes of inactivity, the projectors automatically shut down to save power. For total energy efficiency, a “Standby” mode allows the projectors to lower power usage to less than 0.5W during periods of inactivity.
Available now, the BenQ MX631ST and MW632ST retail at $799 and $999, respectively. More information on the full line of BenQ products is available at www.BenQ.us.
