Feature-Loaded Line Brings Up to 4,200 ANSI Lumens of Brightness, Simple Setup, and Energy Savings for Any Application
COSTA MESA, Calif. -- Feb. 10, 2015 -- BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions and the No. 1-selling TI DLP(R) projector brand in the Americas(1), today announced the release of its all-new M7 projector series. Engineered to bring high brightness, Colorific(TM) picture quality, and simple installation to any setting, the company's MX723, MX726, and MW727 projectors feature up to 4,200 ANSI lumens of brightness, a 13,000:1 contrast ratio, BenQ's world-leading SmartEco(TM) technology, mobile high-definition link (MHL) connectivity, dual HDMI(R) support, and setup options such as 2D keystone -- allowing users to cast memorable content experiences without increasing their total cost of ownership (TCO).
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 respective brightness. When combining both XGA (MX723 and MX726) and WXGA (MW727) resolutions, 3D capabilities, and up to 13,000:1 contrast ratios, the trio provides audiences with engaging color experiences that radically brighten any content. To keep the installation process amazingly simple for any user, the new BenQ M7 series features 1.6x zoom, 2D keystone correction and corner fit capabilities, as well as an RC hot key, which walks users through a seamless setup process.
"Our new M7 Series brings together a family of easy-to-use, high-brightness projectors that maintain our customers' demand for solutions that carry a low total cost of ownership," said Bob Wudeck, Associate Vice President, Strategy and Business Development at BenQ America Corp. "Equipped with features such as SmartEco technology, LAN display capabilities, and MHL connectivity, the M7 Series effectively equips any teacher, presenter, or home user with incredibly powerful tools that facilitate and enrich the rich content projection experience."
Equipped with LAN Display, the M7 Series allows audio and video signals to be carried to the projectors over a single LAN cable, creating more integrated connectivity for users within classrooms or boardroom settings. For IT staff, both facility-wide maintenance and management are simplified using a LAN control feature that enables remote monitoring, scheduling, and maintenance from any location over a network. For even further convenience, the MX726 and MW727 come equipped with MHL capabilities, enabling devices such as notebook PCs, gaming consoles, and smart devices to transfer small-screen content directly to the projector from any portable device -- increasing BYOD interactivity, collaboration, and content viewing possibilities for connected users. For presenters, the units also feature dual HDMI connectivity, which enables input from several sources, and a teaching template function to write on whiteboards easily without the need to draw any lines.
Equipped with BenQ's SmartEco technology, M7 Series users are able to experience brightness, innovation, and amazing performance while further reducing their TCO. By setting projectors to "Smart Eco" mode, 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. More information on the full line of BenQ products is available at www.BenQ.us.
