BenQ BlueCore Light Engine: a Smarter Alternative to Traditional Lamp
The BenQ LW61ST is the first in the world to be equipped BlueCore, a light engine that utilizes the unparalleled qualities of a laser light source to achieve optimized energy efficiency, projection performance and readiness. It also incorporates the BlueCore-enhanced SmartEco™ Advanced technology to further reduce light source power consumption by up to 90% for a significantly lowered total cost of projector maintenance and ownership. Free of mercury, the BenQ LW61ST is a safer, smarter and environmentally friendly choice for your school.
80000:1 High Contrast Performance for Ultra Sharp Graphics and Text
Blurry images can be distracting for students to read and can cause eye strains and fatigue. The BlueCore light engine can dim the light source power up to 90% and still achieve a contrast ratio as high as 80000:1. This allows students to learn with ultra sharp images and text so they can focus their attention on learning.
20000 Hours of Optimal Brightness and Reliable Performances
The BlueCore light engine, powered by a laser light source in Eco Mode, has nearly three times the lamp life of a traditional mercury lamp. With up to 20000 hours of light source life, the LW61ST offers a much more reliable performance with no sudden decrease in brightness.
Instant On/Off Projection Readiness for Classroom Instruction
It only takes a few seconds for the LW61ST to reach full brightness using BlueCore technology. In addition, it doesn’t require additional time to cool down. That leaves teachers with more time to teach without having to wait around between classes.
Users can adjust the brightness level of the LW61ST manually to fit the environmental lighting condition to save power. This is something you cannot do with a traditional projector. In the long-run, you're able to save power and prolong the light source life.
Heightened Projector Brightness for a Clearer View
Lowered Projector Brightness to Save Light
360° Degree Tilt Projection
Thanks to the laser characteristics of the BlueCore light engine and the heat sink design, users have the flexibility to set up the LW61ST tilted 360° degrees in either direction around the vertical! This gives teachers the flexibility to place the projector any way they want and optimize limited space.
Power Smart with the SmartEco Advanced Technology
Driven by BenQ’s latest BlueCore Light Engine, the all new SmartEco Advanced technology optimizes the core element of the projector – the projector light source system – to save up to 90% in light source power consumption! For schools that are looking for ways to lower the total cost of ownership, SmartEco Advanced certainly helps to reduce energy costs and extend the light source life.
The SmartEco Mode automatically determines the optimal brightness depending on the input source. This special mode cleverly adjusts the light source power to maximize power saving – delivering the best contrast and brightness performance at the same time. Press the SmartEco hot key on the remote control to enter this.
Eco Blank Mode
The Eco Blank Mode allows teachers to blank the projection screen when the projector is not in use. Blanking the projection screen also allows teachers to direct their students’ focus back on them. Press the “Eco Blank Mode” button on the keypad or the “Blank” button on the remote control to activate this feature and watch the projector dims the light source power automatically, lowering the total light source power consumption by up to 90%.
Full Power On 100% Light Source Power Attention on the Projection Screen
Eco Blank Mode On 10% Light Source Power at the Lowest Attention on the Class Instructor
No Source Detected Mode
SmartEco Advanced activates the Eco Blank Mode after the projector has remained unconnected to a display source, such as a classroom PC or notebook, for three minutes, automatically lowering the projector brightness to 10%. This is to avoid keeping a projector from running with full lighting power, allowing the projector light source to rest whenever possible. Hence, the projector light source lasts longer.
Other Great Features to Engage Your Class
iPad/iPhone Display Connectivity
More and more schools are recognizing the benefits of teaching with Apple iPads – with teachers responding positively on how the devices have helped them succeed tremendously in engaging their students in class. The education applications open a gateway to a world of knowledge through a wide range of contents such as e-books, websites, newspapers, magazines, movies, music and games – offering students a more captivating learning experience in every subject. The LW61ST comes with iPad and/or iPhone wireless display support to expand onscreen content to over 80 inches and empower teachers to teach freely in class.
20W Speaker Power and Microphone Input Support
The LW61ST comes with enhanced audio support for your classroom. Two 10W speakers are sealed and secured within each side of the projector with BenQ's anti-shake design to deliver 20W crisp-clear audio performance with stable projection. The microphone input connects the projector to a conventional microphone or microphone headset for increased ease of teaching and learning.
BenQ DLP®Projectors︱ Long-Lasting Image Perfection with DLP Technology
Timeless Image Quality
BenQ DLP Projectors are built with enduring enjoyment in mind, ensuring razor-sharp clarity, ultra-readability and true-to-life color for years to come. We use leading-edge DLP Technology to reflect pure light from millions of micro mirrors on a DMD chip through our advanced color wheels. Since the mirrors are colorless and protected within a nearly-sealed engine, BenQ DLP Projectors have no aging problems and are virtually immune to image decay, consistently delivering picture excellence time and time again. In fact, after 2,000 hours of intense usage, inserting a new bulb produces image quality comparable to a brand-new projector.
BenQ DLP Projector
DLP Technology also affords a filter-free engine design for carefree confidence in long-lasting image quality and reduced total cost of ownership. BenQ’s SmartEco™ Technology further boosts contrast performance and image quality endurance while saving up to 70% on lamp power consumption.
Razor-Sharp Clarity with Ultra-Readability
Enabling a 96% fill factor, DLP Technology supplies pixel circuitry behind the pixel, thereby eliminating the thick dark bezels around individual pixels, which diminish color and detail. A higher fill factor and less black border translate to noticeably purer, more intense color and smoother image quality.
BenQ DLP Projectors also feature high contrast ratios for flawless rendering of small text, fine lines, and dark scene details. Blacks are deeper and overall image quality is more focused and clean. Your presentations will be easily readable and highly effective, even from the back row of a well-lit venue.
Vibrant, True-to-Life Colors
Even in lit venues, BenQ DLP Projectors achieve the optimal balance of brightness and color accuracy, with BrilliantColor™ Technology additionally boosting true-to-life colors that captivate. BrilliantColor enables up to six-color processing by incorporating the secondary colors Yellow, Cyan, and Magenta along with primary Red, Blue, and Green. From intense hues to elusive mid-tones like aqua blues and light yellows, your every presentation is rendered in pure, living splendor.
