BenQ to launch projection and display innovations at ISE 201613 January 2016
BenQ has announced the advanced solutions to be unveiled at ISE 2016 will include laser light source and home cinema projectors, as well as app-controlled smart displays.
“This year at ISE, we are excited to share not only our display hardware leadership, but our elegant software engineering and vertical integration,” said Pete Wang, president of BenQ Europe. “What we’ll show are the results of our focus on brilliant quality and design, enabling our partners to provide the exact solution for each customer and to install wondrous visual displays in more places than ever before.”
The projection solutions showcased include 360˚ and vertical projection enabled by laser light. LU9715 (pictured) and LU9235 laser projectors can project vertically and omni-directionally and have 20,000-hour operation. Features include broadcast 3G-SDI and HDBaseT connectivity, embedded edge blending/warping, and multiple lens options.
The PX9710 projector provides XGA resolution at 7,700 ANSI lumens with dual lamp design for large venue installations enabling image wrapping projection. It has the flexibility of seven optional lenses and two changeable colour wheels. Additionally, HDBaseT connectivity combines long-distance video, audio, and device control from multiple sources into a single connection.
Another new addition for ISE is the flagship W11000 4K UHD home theatre projector. Equipped with big zoom and extreme H/V lens shift capabilities, its installation flexibility provides reference-grade home theatre projection. ISE visitors will also see the announcement of a new entry in BenQ’s Home Entertainment series with the W8000, which delivers Rec.709 colour and performance with five optional lens choices.
Alongside the hardware additions, BenQ is launching the X-Sign software platform, which has fingertip management, editing and display of media content through an app. It combines with ST550K 4K smart display with plug and play USB flash drive playback for retail and entertainment signage applications.
InstaShow enables plug and play wireless streaming of full HD presentations in corporate meetings. It allows multiple presenters to switch wirelessly projecting full HD content without driver installation or extended cable runs. Its 5GHz 802.11ac WiFi operation ensures smooth wireless streaming.
As well as the product launches, a wide range of BenQ display solutions including videowalls, omni-dextrous installation projectors, and multi-touch LFDs will be demonstrated for commercial, institutional, and consumer uses.
