New Projector Simplifies Wireless Presentations for BYOD Applications

BenQ America Corp. today announced the availability of its new MX661 projector, which features 3,000 lumens of brightness, a 13000:1 contrast ratio, and energy-saving technology. With the MX661, BenQ is also introducing its latest version of QPresenter, the wireless software app that lets presenters and participants share files directly from their handheld devices.

When paired with the QPresenter app, up to four participants can collaborate and share documents, photos, and Internet content directly from their tablets to the boardroom's projection display. Users can also collaborate on Office and iWork® documents, capture live photos, as well as upload and download files directly from iTunes®, Dropbox, or their email accounts.

For IT managers, features such as LAN control allow remote monitoring and control directly from administrators' workstations. The MX661 also provides support for AMX®, Crestron®, and PJLink® systems, making maintenance even more flexible and efficient. Simplifying setup, the MX661 features manual vertical keystone calibration of ±40 to get presentations up and running rapidly, regardless of boardroom layout or location. A USB reader and Office Viewer make PC-less presentations possible by allowing speakers to use USB drives. With LAN Display, audio and video signals are carried to the projector via a single LAN cable.

When using the projector's "SmartEco" mode, the MX661 automatically adjusts lamp power by up to 70 percent to use the right amount of brightness, resulting in 6,500 hours of lamp life without compromising picture quality. The MX661 features options such as HDMI® and RJ45 ports, a microphone slot, audio in and out jacks, and 2-W speakers.

The MX661 is available now at an MSRP of $859. More information on the full line of BenQ products is available at
