Enjoy engaging presentations with a minimal risk of shadows with the BenQ MW826ST 3400-Lumen WXGA Short-Throw DLP Projector. It features a short 0.49:1 throw ratio, which will allow you to place it very near your screen or other display surface, reducing the likelihood of someone passing in front of it and casting a shadow. Its 3400 lumens of brightness combined with its 12,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and 1280 x 800 native resolution will help ensure clear images even in rooms with ambient light.
The MW826ST has VGA, S-video, composite video, and two HDMI inputs to support a variety of types of source devices. One HDMI input also supports MHL connectivity, which will allow you to mirror your compatible smart device with a suitable cable. Its VGA output lets you daisy-chain multiple projectors or displays together so you can present the same thing in multiple areas, and the analog audio input and output and integrated 10W speaker enable sound to accompany your presentations. As an added convenience, this projector is compatible with BenQ's PointWrite system, which is an optional add-on that provides a number of interactive features.
Designed for Unobstructed Instruction
Offering screen sizes up to 120" at short distances with its 0.49:1 short throw ratio, the MW826ST is designed to eliminate distracting shadows for students and teachers.
Engineered with High Brightness
The MW826ST produces 3400 lumens of brightness for enhanced projection performance with crisp images and sharp text, even in moderately well-lit lecture rooms. High brightness helps provide clear content in ambient lighting, allowing lights to be kept on during classes for note taking and interactive collaboration.
Display Larger Images
The MW826ST is compatible with a range of resolutions and projected image sizes to meet diverse classroom needs. Featuring enhanced image quality up to 120", the MW826ST is designed to deliver augmented classroom versatility.
Engineered for Long-Lasting Picture Quality
With a sealed design that protects the DLP chip from dust-induced image degradation, the MW826ST is engineered to maintain long-lasting picture quality by eliminating color decay.
High DLP Pixel Fill Factor for Enhanced Imaging
The MW826ST features a high fill factor, minimizing black borders around each pixel to help eliminate the "screen door effect" commonly observed in some projectors.
12,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio for Clear Text
Suitable for text, numbers, and tables widely used in instruction, the MW826ST creates an enhanced dynamic contrast ratio using the digitally controlled micromirrors on the DMD chip. By completely toggling off reflective micromirrors, the MW826ST can generate deep blacks to facilitate a high contrast ratio for crisp text and graphics.
Extended Lamp Life Up to 15,000 Hours
BenQ SmartEco technology is designed to intelligently modulate light output and enhance DLP's energy saving capabilities to increase lamp life without compromising brightness or picture quality. Reducing energy consumption, SmartEco extends lamp life up to 15,000 hours, and Eco Blank mode further increases energy saving capability by dimming lamp power automatically to lower total power by 70% when blanking the projection.
Sharp Details in Dark Scenes
SmartEco Technology also adjusts light output based on content, enhancing contrast to produce richer blacks and optimized picture quality, which is especially important for detailed and dynamic dark scenes, such as for astronomy courses.
LAN Control Compatibility
The MW826ST is compatible with Creston, AMX, and PJ Link control systems for integration with various third-party components and cost reduction via central maintenance of multiple projectors.
Centralized Multiple Display Management
Helping IT managers perform day-to-day maintenance, the BenQ Multiple Display Administrator (MDA) software dashboard enables centralized monitoring, control, and power scheduling across a school's display network from a single computer, offering full access and control over every device directly.
Screen Size Adjustment
The MW826ST allows for screen size fine-tuning through its OSD menu to reduce setup time, eliminating the need to physically adjust the projector installation in case the image is not precisely aligned on the desired frame.
Remote Control Hotkey
Press the "Quick Install" hotkey on the remote control to set up the projector. This is a time saver for those performing initial projector installation work.
Interaction on Any Surface with an Optional PointWrite Kit
PointWrite technology transforms the MW826ST into a collaborative platform that turn nearly any surface into an interactive whiteboard. Integration of the separately available PointWrite kit and QWrite software with the projector helps encourage a collaborative learning environment where students and teachers work together using intuitive templates along with annotation tools.
