BenQ has recently debuted two new ultra-short-throw projectors specifically designed for use within an education setting.

The MX852UST and MW853UST have been created to provide easy installation in a classroom environment and enable simple interactions for teachers and students alike.

According to Bob Wudeck, associate vice president for strategy and business development at BenQ, the new devices will fill an important gap in the projector market by providing education-based ultra-short-throw technology at a low price.

He continued: “With the release of our new MX852UST and MW853UST interactive projectors, we’re empowering teachers with simple yet powerful and collaborative tools to inspire students without breaking the bank.”

Created with the company's Colorific image quality, the XGA MX852UST and WXGA MW853UST provide accurate short-throw images while eliminating colour degradation and light burn during extended use.

Each projector offers a contrast ratio of 10,000:1 and between 3,000 and 3,200 lumens of brightness. Furthermore, the integrated SmartEco technology reduces the overall power consumption by 70 per cent without affecting the overall quality of the image.

Designed for education, the projectors are compatible with BenQ's PointWrite technology, which allows up to four people to collaborate on screens using fingers or enabled pens with the help of auto calibration.
