BenQ has debuted two new projectors, the MH680 and MH740, designed for multiple applications. Both projectors feature 1080p resolution and are 3D PC and Blu-Ray ready.
The MH680, the cheaper of the two at $799, offers wireless display and the ability for four people to share documents at once. Other features of the MH680 include:
- The ability to split the screen two or four ways;
- Sketching directly on documents as they're displayed;
- Access to Dropbox and email;
- A brightness of 3,000 lumens;
- A 10,000:1 contrast ratio;
- Two RGB (mini D-sub 15-pin), one HDMI, one S-video, one composite video, one 3.5 mm stereo jack and USB and USB mini inputs;
- RGB (mini D-sub 15-pin), 10-watt speaker and 3.5 mm stereo jack outputs; and
- RS232 control.
Features of the $1,499 MH740 include:
- An 11,000:1 contrast ratio;
- Brightness of 4,000 lumens;
- Two RGB (mini D-sub 15-pin), two HDMI, one S-video, one composite video, one 3.5 mm stereo jack and USB inputs;
- RGB (mini D-sub 15-pin), 10-watt speaker and 3.5 mm stereo jack outputs;

"The new MH680 and MH740 projectors were designed to reflect the evolving needs of today's multi-application users by providing a wide range of features at a more affordable price," said Bob Wudeck, associate vice president of strategy and business development at BenQ America, in a prepared statement. "With nearly double the pixel count of traditional WXGA devices, BenQ's MH740 is available for a fraction of the cost of top-selling 3LCD WUXGA projectors. When combined with the MH680's BYOD interactivity in addition to the pair's energy-saving lamp technology, both units deliver outstanding experiences, long-lasting color performances, and tremendous value."
