BenQ today launched its ultra short throw projector, the MX880UST, aimed at the education vertical in India.

The MX880UST light up a big screen when placed less than half a meter away from it. Hence it is more suitable for making presentations at smaller environments, such as classrooms. BenQ has priced MX880UST at Rs. 92,000.

The MX880UST includes BenQ’s exclusive spherical lens projection design that helps the projector throw a 78-inch whiteboard sized big picture at a distance of 0.48 meters. The projector comes with two 10W built-in speakers and a stereo-out jack.

Moreover, the MX880UST projector includes an ultra short throw, which is the latest advancement in projector technology. This technology offers advanced features such as a guaranteed light stream. Also, the image is protected from shadowing which is common with traditional projection when a person or object interrupts the light stream. The projector includes a built-in mirror that the lens displays on. This reflects the image onto the screen, reducing the throw distance of the projector.

The MX880UST is based on the DLP technology and has the XGA resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. It offers brightness of 2500 ANSI lumen and 3000:1 high contrast ratio. Most important, it’s a 3D-ready projection. Moreover, it features a PC-less presentation, USB Display, LAN Display and wireless display. It comes with various connectivity options like D-Sub-in and out, composite, RCA, S-Video, Component and a microphone. Also, it comes with LAN Control networking capability. It has been designed in such a manner that it requires little maintenance. This increases the color and clarity of readability of the projector, which offers stable pictures and avoids shadows.

The MX880UST is available in parts of Asia and Europe. The company has given no words on its US launch.
