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 invention, the MW824ST brings together uncompromised brightness, exquisite picture quality and optimized lamp life through innovative features.
Smart eco mode
The SmartEco mode cleverly adjusts the lamp power to maximize power saving by delivering the best contrast and brightness performance using only as much light as needed.
Projector lamp replacement costs make up the biggest part of the total cost of projector ownership. The LampSave Mode is designed to adjust the lamp power dynamically by content brightness level to extend projector lamp life significantly by 50%! The lamp replacement frequency is also reduced by up to 50% to lower the replacement costs.
The LumenCare mode, which adjusts projector lamp power in gain steps until full power is reached, effectively maximizes power saving and reduces brightness decay. It's the first and only projection feature on market that ensures three years of consistent image brightness for optimal learning and teaching.
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 70%.
No source detected mode
The automatic switch to Eco Blank Mode after the projector is turned on for over three minutes without a display source, eliminating unnecessary energy waste and prolonging the life of the projector lamp.
Zero eye-blinding lights
The short-throw projection distance keeps the projector light from shining directly into your eyes, allowing you to keep your focus on your audience.
Say goodbye to the shadows that often interrupt your presentation. With a projection distance this close, you and your audience can move freely without worrying about obstructions between the projector and the screen!
Interactive Learning with BenQ's Leading technology PointWrite technology allows more students participation at once
Keeping students involved and engaged is a central practice in the BenQ Classroom IQ concept-and PointWrite is a great way to let multiple students contribute at once. Teachers can get up to 4 students to come up to the board and collaborate simultaneously with PointWrite pens. Quizzes, board work, presentations and games will never be the same! PointWrite is effortless to set up and cost efficient, making it flexible, affordable option of multi-pens.
Thoughtful Design MHL Connectivity
With MHL connectivity, you can share your content from your Android devices on big screen. MW824ST features MHL function and allows you to mirror the data, photo and other contents from your android devices to big screen, Also, your device is being charged while you're using it, you don't have to worry about the power while presenting.
Blu-ray Full HD 3D supported
BenQ MW824ST is built with DLP technology to support 3D functionality, allowing schools to bring an immersive learning experience to their students with a simple preparation of 3D glasses and 3D content from your Blu-ray player.
Hassle-free projector maintenance upper lamp door for easy lamp access
The upper lamp door is designed for it managers to replace the projector lamp safely and quickly. Should the projector lamp go out in the middle of the class, it can be replaced without delaying the class.
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 MW824ST offers seamless support for the Crestron and PJ-Link LAN control system.
