BenQ Debuts New Large Venue Laser Projectors
BenQ has added two new laser projectors to its BlueCore laser projector family: the LU9750 and LU9800. Specifically engineered to deliver high brightness, precise image accuracy, and long-lasting reliability with zero maintenance, the new 8500-ANSI-lumen LU9750 and 10,000-ANSI-lumen LU9800 laser projectors are well-suited for large venues, simulations, and museum applications, according to the company.
“Our latest laser projectors were developed for markets and applications that demand brightness and the highest attention to color accuracy but can’t afford the steep price tag of a digital cinema projector in which these desired features are traditionally found,” said Bob Wudeck, senior director of business development at BenQ America Corp. “In the past, these markets either had to make large investments for a color-accurate cinema projector or compromise on the precision of color and brightness, thereby negatively impacting the outcome of the installation. We’re the first company to offer a 10K-lumen, color-accurate laser projector with 95% Rec. 709 color coverage for under $15,000.”
The new BenQ LU9750 and LU9800 laser projectors were specifically built for large-venue, simulation, and museum applications, which the company says will fill the market gap where no affordable premium-quality projector could be found. BenQ says they provide “exceptional WUXGA (1920 x 1200) native resolution that far exceeds full-HD 1080p for greater detail and stunning image clarity at a high lumen count—as much as 10,000 ANSI lumens in the LU9800—to deliver specified color accuracy that has only been available from the most expensive projectors found on the market today”. In addition, the new projectors deliver cinematic 95% Rec. 709 color coverage and accuracy out of the box, and will not yellow over time.
The LU9750 and LU9800 laser projectors are compatible with Crestron, AMX, and PJ Link LAN-based control systems for convenient system integration with various third-party components. When there is no LAN infrastructure, they also can be supported over RS-232 for long-distance installations up to 15 meters. Finally, the projectors come preinstalled with BenQ’s MDA centralized control software to maintain multiple projectors with ease; this free PC-based management tool enables remote and centralized management of multiple digital projectors by IT administrators/technicians via a local network. The management capabilities include the ability to remotely monitor, control, and configure projectors individually or as groups.
