The two new models were unveiled at the recent Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2016 event in Amsterdam, where BenQ highlighted the 360 degree and vertical projection enabled by laser light sources and its cooling system — in fact, the LU9715 features a liquid cooling system to reduce the operating noise and efficiency of the projector. The manufacturer also said that both of the new models provide 20,000-hours of operation.
The LU9715 and LU9235 offer 8,000 and 6,000 lumens of brightness respectively, and both of the new models feature dual laser light sources, which are compatible with up to eight lenses.
A dual colour wheel system should give users superior image performance, too, through a system combining RGBY colour wheels with DLP chip technology to provide accurate, natural colour representation.
The LU9715’s sealed optical engine and laser bank increase the unit’s long-term durability by protecting against dust and other damaging particles. The unit is also equipped with 3G SDI.
Both of the new BlueCore series projectors feature HDBaseT connectivity, enabling signals to be transmitted up to 100 metres via a cost-effective network cable. IT managers can also use this system to control the projector from a remote location using the integrated LAN functions.
BenQ was keen to highlight the benefits of laser projectors at ISE, trumpeting their eco-friendliness by minimising lamp replacement, energy consumption and hazardous materials.
