BenQ America Corp., a provider of digital light processor (DLP) projectors, debuts the MX520 digital projector that offers energy-efficient features, and is intended for small to medium spaces.
The MX520 features a 13,000:1 contrast ratio, 1.07 billion-color display, 3,000 American National Standards Institute (ANSI) lumen brightness and extended graphics adaptor (XGA) resolution. The projector’s multiple connectivity options supports various 3D formats and external devices such as Blu-ray and DVD players.
It also employs SmartEco technology, that helps extend the lamp life up to 6,500 hours, and reduces power consumption by about 70 percent, according to BenQ. Additional energy-efficient modes include Eco Blank, which when no source is detected dims or blanks out the screen, and the MX520 is able to automatically adjust its lamp power to maximize energy savings by delivering optimal contrast and brightness performance.
The MX520 also features a faster cooling time, as well as a 90-second period for immediately turning the device back on.
The MX520 is “a simple, flexible projector,” says Eric Hass, BenQ’s director of IT channel.
