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.
