World-Leading SmartEco Technology for a Greener Environment

As the first DLP brand to incorporate Philips' ImageCare technology into its projector lamp system, BenQ has taken a further leap, developing its own SmartEco Technology to perfect what DLP can do for energy saving in the 21st century classroom. Built with this brand new invention, the MX720 brings together uncompromised brightness, exquisite picture quality and optimized lamp life through innovative features.

Eco Blank Mode

The Eco Blank mode allows teachers to blank the projection screen whenever they need to direct their students' focus back on them – or simply when the projector is not in use. When activated, this special feature dims the lamp power automatically, lowering the total power consumption by 70%.

0.5W in Standby Mode

When inactive, the MX720 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 helps lower energy costs.

LAN Display

LAN Display offers a cost-effective solution for projector implementation management using a single LAN cable to control and display. This feature also offers simultaneous 4-1 or partial projection display option for better content management for discussions, presentations, training and classroom teaching.

Built-in 10W Speaker Power

The MX720 comes with enhanced audio support for your classroom, delivering crisp-clear audio performance with built-in 10W speaker power. Now, teachers can teach with ease and students can learn more effectively.

LAN Control with Crestron RoomView®, PJ-Link and AMX

LAN Control is designed to help IT managers perform day-to-day projector maintenance and repair tasks efficiently and effectively-offering them full access and control over every projector directly from their workstations. The MX720 offers seamless support for the Crestron RoomView and PJ-Link LAN Control system.

Supports Various 3D Formats

BenQ education projectors are standard-equipped with DLP Link-supported 3D projection to offer students the same amazing 3D effects seen in 3D movies. The 3D formats supported by the MX720 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.

Closed Captioning

Display subtitles in video content without the need for an external closed-captioning device with the MX720. It's perfect for viewing in educational settings such as language classes where a transcript of onscreen dialog is desirable.

Now, with four different line pattern designs to choose from – Letter Formation, Musical Staff, Worksheet and Coordinate Chart, you can easily write or draw on whiteboards as well as blackboards without the need of drawing lines or charts.
