Power saving, Eco friendly

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 MW727 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 MW727 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.

 
 

 

Under 6W in Network Standby Mode

With the MW727 in Network Standby mode, it takes less than 6W to keep the MW727 connected to the network even after it’s powered off. IT managers can retain full control over the projector’s daily maintenance and repair tasks while saving a significant amount of the earth’s energy resources.

 
 

 

2D Keystone Correction

When the projector is placed off center, the 2D keystone correction feature gives you a greater projector installation flexibility by correcting the trapezoid effect using horizontal and vertical adjustments.

Corner Fit Correction

Corner Fit is a flexible and convenient way to correct picture dimensions by adjusting each corner of an image independently.

MHL Connectivity

With MHL connectivity, you can share content from your Android devices on big screen. MW727 features MHL function and allows you to mirror the data, photo and other contents from your android devices to big screen. Also, your connected device will charge while you're using it; you don't have to worry about the power while presenting.

LAN Display

LAN Display offers a cost-effective solution for projector implementation management using a single LAN cable to control and display. This feature offers one NB to one projector projection display for better content management for discussions, presentations, training and classroom teaching.

BenQ DLP® Projectors︱ Long-Lasting Image Perfection with DLP Technology

Timeless Image Quality:

BenQ DLP Projectors are built with enduring enjoyment in mind, ensuring razor-sharp clarity, ultra-readability and true-to-life color for years to come. We use leading-edge DLP Technology to reflect pure light from millions of micro mirrors on a DMD chip through the use of our advanced color wheels. Since the mirrors are colorless and protected within a nearly-sealed engine, BenQ DLP Projectors have no aging problems and are virtually immune to image decay, consistently delivering picture excellence time and time again. In fact, after 2,000 hours of intense usage, inserting a new bulb produces image quality comparable to a brand-new projector.

DLP Technology also affords a filter-free engine design for carefree confidence in long-lasting image quality and reduced total cost of ownership. BenQ’s SmartEco™ Technology further boosts contrast performance and image quality endurance while saving up to 70% on lamp power consumption.

 
 

 

Razor-Sharp Clarity with Ultra-Readability:

Enabling a 96% fill factor, DLP Technology supplies pixel circuitry behind the pixel, thereby eliminating the thick dark bezels around individual pixels, which diminish color and detail. A higher fill factor and less black border translate to noticeably purer, more intense color and smoother image quality.

BenQ DLP Projectors also feature high contrast ratios for flawless rendering of small text, fine lines, and dark scene details. Blacks are deeper and overall image quality is more focused and clean. Your presentations will be easily readable and highly effective, even from the back row of a well-lit venue.

 
MW727
 

 

Vibrant, True-to-Life Colors:

Even in lit venues, BenQ DLP Projectors achieve the optimal balance of brightness and color accuracy, with BrilliantColor™ Technology additionally boosting true-to-life colors that captivate. BrilliantColor enables up to six-color processing by incorporating the secondary colors Yellow, Cyan, and Magenta along with primary Red, Blue, and Green. From intense hues to elusive mid-tones like aqua blues and light yellows, your every presentation is rendered in pure, living splendor.
