BenQ Launches Interactive Projector
BenQ's MP780 ST interactive projector
BenQ introduced a new 3D-ready projector at the InfoComm 2010 conference last week in Las Vegas.
The new MP780 ST is a short-throw DLP projector that offers interactivity similar to an interactive whiteboard. The projector takes advantage of a DrawPoint pen that can be used on most surfaces to draw on the projected image, without the need for additional hardware.
With a throw ratio of 0.5:1, the unit can produce a 95-inch image at a distance of slightly more than 3 feet.
Other features include:
- 1,280 x 800 native resolution;
- 3,000: 1 contrast ratio;
- Brightness of 2,500 lumens;
- Image size of 48 inches to 300 inches;
- 16:10 native aspect ratio;
- RS-232 control;
- RJ-45 connectivity; and
- Two 10 watt speakers.
Inputs include an HDMI 1.3, RGB (mini D-sub 15-pin), and S-video, along with a 3.5 mm stereo minijack, USB display port, and USB reader port.
