When inactive, the MX520 keeps power consumption to a minimum with <0.5W standby power, achieving what was once a challenge for earlier projector models. This technological advancement in energy saving certainly helps extend the projector lamp life and lower energy costs.
The MX520 offers an optimized lamp life of up to 6500 hours*, which is twice the lamp life expectancy of an average projector lamp. This helps lower the number of lamp changes and keep maintenance to a minimum.
*Lamp life results will vary depending on environmental conditions and usage.
Featuring a filter-free design, the MX520 requires no filter cleaning or filter replacements, which virtually reduces the labor cost as well as the budget for filter maintenance.
BenQ projectors are standard-equipped with DLP Link™-supported 3D projection to offer the same amazing 3D effects seen in 3D movies. The 3D formats supported by the MX520 are 3D field-sequential, 3D frame packing, 3D top-and-bottom and 3D side-by-side. Furthermore, this incredible projector can be connected to a Blu-ray DVD player for even more stunning visual quality.
Cooling time itself has been reduced by over 60%, saving your time and minimizing the risk of heat damage to sensitive internal components.
The Auto Power Off feature allows the projector to turn off automatically if no input signal is detected after a set period of time so no power is wasted.
The Signal Power On feature turns on your projector automatically once input signal is detected for added convenience.
This convenient feature turns on the projector wheneverit is connected to a power source, saving teachers time and hassle.
The Instant Restart feature gives teachers a 90-second window period to turn the projector back on immediately when it has been switched off by accident – no waiting necessary.
