BenQ America Corp. today announced the latest additions to its PointDraw™ line of short-throw projectors: the MW821ST and MX822ST. Supporting BenQ's third-generation PointDraw interactive projection technology, the projectors enable integration of iPad® and Android™ tablets, and greater interaction with new PointDraw Pen 3.0. 

The optional PointDraw pen enables teachers and presenters to write on any projection surface whenever enhanced interactivity is required. The QDraw3 app is available for download from the Apple® App StoreSM or the Google Play™ Store and can be used via wireless connection with iPad and Android devices. The interactive software is also compatible with Mac® and Linux® operating systems in addition to offering tile-friendly Windows® 8 compatibility, and can be downloaded from the benq.us website. A license key is included in the PointDraw pen package, which is available for purchase separately. 

The MW821ST offers 3000 ANSI lumens,while the MX822ST offers XGA native resolution, 3500 ANSI lumens, and a short throw ratio of 0.61, and allows for PC-less presentations using plug and play USB display. 

To reduce power consumption, the MW821ST and MX822ST use BenQ's SmartEco™ technology, which increases lamp life up to 6,500 and 3,500 hours respectively.

The MW821ST is available now at an MSRP of $1,399, while the MX822ST will be available in March at an MSRP of $2,599. The short-throw projectors can be purchased standalone or as interactive packages. More information on the full line of BenQ products is available at www.benq.us.
