BenQ MW870UST 3000 Lumens PointDraw Ready Short Throw DLP Projector review

The MW870UST gives you the ultimate interactivity with the all new 3rd generation PointDraw technology! Interact simultaneously with multi-device collaboration mode and QDraw3 on the WXGA resolution screen. This ultra short-throw projector also enables 3D projection to maximize the learning experience. (PointDraw sold separately)

Maximize students’ learning with amazing 3D effects. The MW870UST is 3D ready to turn conventional classrooms into a whole new immersive learning environment that best suits today’s young learners. Teachers can illustrate complex or abstract concepts using 3D graphics and engage students in biology projects such as animal dissection more effectively. They can also take their classes on virtual field trips whenever and wherever they want.

For radiant, life-like color, trust BenQ to deliver. From business presentations and educational venues to spectacular events and home entertainment, Colorific from BenQ is the only way to experience your projected images. BenQ’s MW870UST projector is equipped with DLP technology that can display more than one billion stunning colors, compared to only 16.7 million from many LCD projectors in the same class. Combining up to 7 different colors to create vibrant, true to life images versus traditional 3-color LCD architecture, projectors equipped with Colorific technology, such as the SH915, can deliver up to 3x more contrast than similar top-selling LCD models. Enjoy richer blacks and more luminous whites for easy to read images, with a consistent quality image–no light burn or reduction in color quality over time. Colorific images are the same now, and for years to come.

BenQ promotes classroom collaboration as well as teacher-student and student-student interaction by facilitating a diverse learning environment that caters to all learners. Its latest creation, the 3rd generation PointDraw technology, takes teaching and learning to a new level with additional support for multi-device collaboration. With simultaneous teacher-student interaction, students can take turn making their contribution to the lesson under the teacher’s complete guidance and control. Also, unlike other interactive projection solutions, BenQ’s PointDraw technology requires no calibration at all between the MW870UST and the projection screen. Teachers can easily set up their lesson to begin teaching–all they need to do is switch on the projector and the PointDraw pen.

The BenQ MW870UST features an ultra-short throw for maximum flexibility in choosing your projection locations. Just imagine the freedom of having the same projection quality with half the required distance. A short projection distance keeps the projector light from shining directly into your eyes, allowing you to keep your focus on your audience. You can also say goodbye to shadows that often interrupt a presentation. With a projection distance this close, you and your audience can move freely without worrying about obstructions between the projector and the screen.

The MW870UST comes with enhanced audio support for your classroom. Two 10W speakers are sealed and secured within each side of the projector with BenQ’s anti-shake design to deliver 20W crisp-clear audio performance with stable projection. The microphone input connects the projector to a conventional microphone or microphone headset for increased ease of teaching and learning.

Engage your class with BenQ’s WXGA (1280×800) short-throw picture performance. Compared to 4:3 projections, WXGA widescreen projection boosts the total viewing area by 30% for effective learning. The unique, ultra short-throw technology renders sharper, clearer images and less shadow distractions using only 0.7m to project a large 87″ image. WXGA offers the best resolution support for widescreen PC and notebooks.

The MW870UST keeps display set-ups quick and easy with LAN Display and USB Display options. LAN Display supports classroom projector control and audiovisual projection display via a single LAN cable. It also enables simultaneous school-wide emergency broadcasts. USB Display offers the plug-and-play convenience of USB connection with automatic resolution detection for the best image presentation and extension support for simultaneous multi-projection display.

To make a teacher’s job easier, the MW870UST supports PC-less teaching in two ways: USB Drive Display and Remote Desktop. USB Drive Display allows teachers to teach light with a USB flash drive. All that’s needed is to save files onto a USB flash drive and insert it in the MW870UST to start teaching. File types supported are JPEG, JPG, BMP, PNG, GIF and TIFF. Remote Desktop grants teachers remote access to files stored in their computers with a wireless mouse and keyboard via LAN connection. With this handy feature, there will be no need for a classroom computer, which means more money saved on computer purchase, maintenance and repair for your school. Read more..
