BenQ grows S Series projector line30 May 2014
Projector manufacturer BenQ America has expanded its S Series line of high-brightness professional projectors with a trio of projectors designed to for medium- to large-sized classrooms, corporate meeting rooms, and auditoriums.
The three models – SX912 (XGA), SH915 (WXGA), and SW916 (full HD 1080p) – provide up to 5,000 lumens using the company’s Colorific projection technology.
The professional S Series line boasts 11,000:1 contrast ratios for large venue installation — delivering accurate, crisp, and long-lasting image quality via one billion colours. The series also features BenQ’s SmartEco technology, which automatically adjusts lamp power based on the optimal amount of brightness that is required, enabling large venues to reduce their TCO while maintaining optimal contrast, brightest performance, and up to 3,800 hours of lamp life.
Other features include a 1.5x big-zoom lens ratio; the SW916 adds corner, surface fit, and 2D keystone capabilities. The SX912 projector offers LAN control, and both the SH915 and SW916 add display control. All models provide remote management and control, and multiple projectors can be centrally monitored for simplified maintenance across large facilities.
Third-party integration with Crestron, RoomView, and PJLink further simplifies system interoperability. During operation, the projectors can easily display content via a built-in USB reader, as well as wirelessly (SH915 and SW916), allowing users to connect quickly using solid-state media storage drives or through the LAN to enable rapid content access without a PC connection.
The projectors’ Instant Restart capabilities allow presenters and operators to reactivate the units immediately, within 90 seconds, during which time power is maintained at 30 percent for further energy efficiencies and convenience.
Providing the ultimate in connectivity, the S Series projectors are fully 3D PC, Blu-ray, and nVidia 3DTV Play ready. The three models provide microphone inputs for more streamlined presentations in addition to an audio pass-through function that preserves lamp life by enabling only sound when no image is needed.
