BenQ DLP Projector




Non-DLP Projector




DLP Technology also affords a filter-free engine design for carefree confidence in long-lasting image quality and reduced total cost of ownership. BenQ's SmartEco™ Technology further boosts contrast performance and image quality endurance while saving up to 70% on lamp power consumption.



Razor-sharp Clarity with Ultra-readability:

Enabling a 96% fill factor, DLP Technology supplies pixel circuitry behind the pixel, thereby eliminating the thick dark bezels around individual pixels, which diminish color and detail. A higher fill factor and less black border translate to noticeably purer, more intense color and smoother image quality.

BenQ DLP Projectors also feature high contrast ratios for flawless rendering of small text, fine lines, and dark scene details. Blacks are deeper and overall image quality is more focused and clean. Your presentations will be easily readable and highly effective, even from the back row of a well-lit venue.



Vibrant, True-to-Life Colors:

Even in lit venues, BenQ DLP Projectors achieve the optimal balance of brightness and color accuracy, with BrilliantColor™ Technology additionally boosting true-to-life colors that captivate. BrilliantColor enables up to six-color processing by incorporating the secondary colors Yellow, Cyan, and Magenta along with primary Red, Blue, and Green. From intense hues to elusive mid-tones like aqua blues and light yellows, your presentations are rendered in pure, living splendor.


SmartEco™ Technology for a Greener Environment


Offering lower TCO and optimized projection through dynamic power saving, uncompromised brightness, exquisite picture quality and optimized lamp life-–SmartEco Technology has perfected what a DLP projector can do. With this innovation, schools and corporations are able to save up to 70% of lamp power consumption and lower maintenance costs through dynamic power saving features while bringing an ultra-vivid viewing experience into every presentation.



Eco Blank Mode

The Eco Blank mode allows teachers to blank the projection screen whenever they need to direct their students' focus back on them – or simply when the projector is not in use. When activated, this special feature dims the lamp power automatically, lowering the total power consumption by 70%.

0.5W in Standby Mode

When inactive, the MX726 keeps power consumption to a minimum with <0.5W standby power, achieving what was once a challenge for earlier projector models. This technological advancement in energy saving helps lower energy costs.



Under 6W in Network Standby Mode

With the MX726 under standby mode, all it takes is less than 6W to keep the MX726 connected to the network even after it's powered off. IT managers can retain full control over the projector's daily maintenance and repair tasks while saving a significant amount of the earth's energy resources.



2D Keystone Correction

When the projector is placed off center, the 2D keystone correction feature gives you a wider projector installation flexibility by correcting the trapezoid effect using horizontal and vertical adjustments.



Corner Fit Correction

Corner Fit is a flexible and convenient way to correct picture dimensions by adjusting each corner of an image independently.



MHL Connectivity

With MHL connectivity, you can share your content from your Android devices. THe MX726 features MHL functionality and allows you to mirror the data, photo and other contents from your android devices to big screen. Also, your device is being charged while you're using it, so you don't have to worry about battery power while presenting.



LAN Display

LAN Display offers a cost-effective solution for projector implementation management using a single LAN cable for control and display. This feature offers one NB to one projector for better content management of discussions, presentations, training and classroom instruction.



Built-in 10W Speaker

The MX726 comes with enhanced audio support for your classroom, delivering crisp, clear audio performance with built-in 10W speaker power. Now, teachers can teach with ease and students can learn more effectively.
