The BenQ MW516 DLP Projector is a comprehensive projector, flexible enough for most applications. It offers plenty of control, letting you easily navigate menu screens to change settings. To ensure you’ll have smooth presentations and adaptability, the MW516 has integrated various display functions and multiple inputs. It’s highlighted by widescreen WXGA resolution, a brightness of 2800 ANSI lumens and a 10,000:1 contrast ratio. Since the MW516 features widescreen projection for medium to small rooms, it’s hard to think of an application that would be out of its range.
The display is enhanced by several features including BrilliantColor technology, which uses a five-segment color wheel to reproduce a rich and accurate palette of crisp colors. The wall color correction adjusts the color to get the optimum picture quality when projecting on a background that is not totally white. The MW516 is also prepared for presentations and entertainment that require 3D technology. With 3D capabilities, it can project images in life-like 3D and make your entertainment more exciting and your presentations more interactive.
Using the HDMI connection for 3D is ideal, but BenQ has integrated several inputs, control terminals and audio jacks with the MW516. Besides HDMI connectivity, you can use the RCA, S-video and composite video inputs. The dual PC inputs give you the power to connect multiple computers to one projector, which is a plus for presentations since you can pull from two PC sources for data. The audio jacks facilitate mic input and audio output to an external source. There is also a 2W stereo speaker built-in to the projector which is loud enough for most presentations.
The USB terminals offer several conveniences. They allow you to give PC-less presentations through a USB flash drive. They also offer plug-and-play possibilities and extension support for simultaneous multi-projection display. With an optional BenQ wireless adapter you can also use the USB port to display presentations from your computer wirelessly and execute centralized network control via WLAN connectivity.
For teachers, BenQ has instituted a teaching template function. Aiding educators with four pre-programmed line pattern designs, the template eliminates the need to waste class-time drawing lines for charts, tables, music, etc. The four different designs are projected on your whiteboard and students can easily write music or do work along the lines supplied by the teaching template.
The MW516 is a versatile and flexible projector that can be used as an educational tool, but it is adaptable enough to fit seamlessly into your home theater as well.
