Top projector provider BenQ has promised those visiting this week's Integrated Systems Europe trade fair in Amsterdam that they will be treated to "performance, passion and magic".

Eight new BenQ projectors are being showcased at the event, ranging from the manufacturer's short-throw education series to its full-HD 1080p auditorium and home selections.

Complete with integrated 3D technology and microphone input, the MP780ST is distinguished by its interactive PointDraw which eliminates the need for a whiteboard and lets users draw wherever an image is projected.

Noting that users are freed from the costs of calibration and whiteboard installation, BenQ's Peter Chen comments: "For budget-conscious users such as schools, the money saved can be applied to bring greater possibilities for students in other areas of education."

He adds that "space-challenged" venues like small classrooms and cramped meeting rooms can benefit from the ultra short-throw MX712UST, which enables a 78-inch image size to be projected from inches away.

BenQ's short-throw series also includes the stereoscopic MP772ST, MP782ST and MP776ST, as well as the MP525ST with its HDMI connection and two built-in 5W speakers.

Some of the highlights of the full-HD 1080p auditorium series include the SP840 and SP890 business projectors, said to display in "luminous 4,000AL for a bold, magical big-screen experience" even in full lights-on conference rooms and large auditoriums. Both models support multiple video formats and display all 1080p content.

In the full-HD 1080p home series, the luxury W6500 boasts a 60,000:1 contrast ratio, 2,500AL, dual HDMI and the ability to display in a cinema-style 2.35:1 aspect ratio using an optional Panamorph lens. Meanwhile, "solid performer" the W1000 features dual HDMI ports so users can simultaneously host digital devices like their Blu-ray player and gaming console.
