About BenQ MW851UST

The BenQ MW851UST WXGA DLP Projector is a powerful, versatile projector with 2500 ANSI lumens of brightness at a 13,000:1 contrast ratio that renders large, bright images even when you have a fair amount of ambient light to cope with. The ST in MW851UST stands for short throw, an attribute that makes this projector a favorite of educators.

The MW851UST only needs 2.3' (0.7 m) to bring a 95" (2.4 m) well-defined widescreen picture to life in small-sized classrooms. What that means is more floor space for audience members, less interruptions and less chance of you being an inadvertent shadow puppet by interfering with the beam. But the MW851UST can do lot more than making large bright pictures. For one thing, it can make them all over the world. It's got an international auto-switching 100 to 240 volt 50/60Hz power supply and it can project video in the NTSC, PAL and SECAM standards.

And speaking of international, its onscreen display (OSD) offers your choice of 28 languages. The projector's wide connectivity includes two components, one composite, one USB, one S-video and several audio inputs. With all of those input possibilities you'll appreciate quick auto search, which finds the live input and selects it automatically.

The MW851UST makes beautiful, vivid pictures thanks to its Texas Instruments DLP DMD (Digital Light Processor Digital Micromirror Device) imaging panel with BrilliantColor. These millions of microscopic mirrors operate so fast that they can project one image for each eye, making 3D in your home and office a reality.

Your projector is ready to bring you everything from fantastic scientific visualizations to stunning 3D movies. This projector also has four picture modes for PC and A/V inputs. The modes are specialized for brightly lit rooms, presentations, viewing photos and watching movies, plus two user modes allow you to save your own picture preferences.

BenQ MW851UST Features

  • World-Leading SmartEco Technology for a Greener Environment: In the effort to help schools meet the learning needs of their students as well as the green goals set by the school district, BenQ has collaborated with Philips Lighting in developing the perfect solution - the SmartEco Technology
  • The SmartEco Technology brings a new way of operating the projector lamp system. Intuitive to use and environmentally friendly, this technology brings together the finest picture quality and maximum energy saving
  • 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
  • SmartEco Mode: The SmartEco mode is designed to use only the exact amount of lamp power a projector needs to deliver the best contrast performance. With this feature, schools get to provide students and teachers uncompromised projection quality
  • No Source Detected Mode: To avoid a projector from running with full lamp power, BenQ created the No Source Detected Mode to lower the projector lamp brightness to 30% after the projector has remained unconnected to a display source for more than three minutes
  • Upper Lamp Door for Easy Lamp Access: The upper lamp door is designed for IT managers to replace the projector lamp safely and quickly. Should the projector lamp go out in the middle of the class, it can be replaced without delaying the class
  • Security Bar to Discourage Theft: A security bar is designed to enable projector managers to secure their classroom projectors either to a ceiling mount or an audiovisual equipment cart, adding extra "physical" security to a classroom projector
  • LAN Control: LAN Control is designed to help IT managers perform day-to-day projector maintenance and repair tasks efficiently and effectively - offering them full access and control over every projector directly from their workstations
  • Crestron and PJ-Link: The MW851UST offers seamless support for the Crestron and PJ-Link LAN Control system
  • Built-in 20W Big Audio Power: The MW851UST features two built-in 10W speakers to help enrich every lesson with top quality audio performances. These speakers are sealed and secured within the projector housing by BenQ's anti-shake design to ensure projection stability at all times
  • Microphone Input Support: With the microphone input, teachers get to reach every student without straining their voice. All they need to do is plug in the microphone or microphone headset to get started
