BenQ introduces SmartEco technology for projectors1 November 2011
Designed to enhance imaging performance and reduce the operating and maintenance cost of projectors, SmartEco offers an energy-efficient way of adjusting to different brightness settings. It allows the projector to compensate for this process with an internal software solution designed to maintain the ideal colour spectrum and provide an improved contrast ratio. When the projected content contains scenes with dark elements, the lamp dims accordingly without any loss of visible brightness for the viewer. This is said to prolong lamp life by up to 80% and reduce energy consumption by up to 50%.
Using SmartEco, when the projector detects no signal, it automatically switches back to using only 30% lamp power.
