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 MX816ST 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 up to 70%.

Long Lamp Life at up to 5000 hours

Enjoy a lamp life performance of up to 5000 hours in Eco mode– longer lamp life expectancy of average projector lamps on the market! This certainly lowers the number of lamp changes and keeps all maintenance to a minimum.

*Lamp life results will vary depending on environmental conditions and usage.

LAN Control with Crestron and PJ-Link

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 MX816ST offers seamless support for the Crestron and PJ-Link LAN Control system.

Thoughtful Features

Built-in 10W Big Audio Power

The MX816ST features one built-in 10W speaker to help enrich every lesson with top quality audio performances.
