Your Space Is... Too $hort

Mama's little baby loves short-throw projection.

"Look! A fancy projector!"


"Uh, what?"

I'm just sayin' sure projectors are great IF YOUR HOUSE IS A BATTING CAGE

"I really don't get what you're trying to say here."

I'll get a projector as soon as I MOVE IN TO A RAILWAY SHED

"Can you just tell me what your point is?"

My point is that you need a lot of space between a projector and a screen. But it's surprisingly hard to think of structures that are long and skinny. 

"Oh. Well, this is an ultra short-throw projector. It can project an 87" diagonal image from as close as three feet away. So you don't need to think of ridiculous dwellings to be sarcastic about."

Thank goodness. My corrosive wit is such a burden. I'm tired. So tired.

DLP® Link™ 3D Projection
Maximize students' learning with amazing 3D effects! The MW870UST is 3D ready to turn conventional classrooms into a whole new immersive learning environment that best suits today's young learners. Teachers can illustrate complex or abstract concepts using 3D graphics and engage students in biology projects such as animal dissection more effectively. They can also take their classes on virtual field trips whenever and wherever they want.

Good Things Come in Short Distance

Zero Space Constraints
Just imagine the freedom of having the same projection quality with half the required distance! You'll have better flexibility in choosing your projection locations! That's the magic of short throw!

Zero Eye-Blinding Lights
The short throw projection distance keeps the projector light from shining directl into your eyes, allowing you to keep your focus on your audience.

Zero Disruptions
Say goodbye to the shadows that often interrupt your presentation. With a projection distance this close, you and your audience can move freely without worrying about obstructions between the projector and the screen!

Thoughtful Design for Teachers

20W Speaker Power and Microphone Input Support
The MW870UST 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.

Calibration-Free Interactivity|
Unlike other interactive projection solutions, BenQ's PointDraw technology requires no calibration at all between the MW870UST and the projection screen. Teachers can easily set up their lesson to begin teaching – All they need to do is switch on the projector and the PointDraw pen!

WXGA Widescreen Short-throw Projection
Engage your class with BenQ's WXGA (1280x800) short-throw picture performance! Comparing to 4:3 projections, WXGA widescreen projection boosts the total viewing area by 30% for effective learning. The unique ultra short-throw technology renders sharper, clearer images and less shadow distractions using only 0.7m to project a large 87" image. WXGA is the best resolution support for widescreen PC and notebooks.

LAN Display and USB Display
The MW870UST keeps display set-ups quick and easy with LAN Display and USB Display options. LAN Display supports classroom projector control and audiovisual projection display via a single LAN cable. It also enables simultaneous school-wide emergency broadcasts.

USB Display offers the plug-and-play convenience of USB connection – with automatic resolution detection for the best image presentation and extension support for simultaneous multi-projection display.

PC-Less Teaching
To make a teacher's job easier, the MW870UST supports PC-less teaching in two ways: USB Drive Display and Remote Desktop.

USB Drive Display allows teachers to teach light with a USB flash drive. All they need to do is save the files they need onto a USB flash drive and insert it in the MW870UST to start teaching. File types supported are JPEG, JPG, BMP, PNG, GIF and TIFF.

Remote Desktop grants teachers remote access to files stored in their computers with a wireless mouse and keyboard via LAN connection. With this handy feature, there will be no need for a classroom computer – which means more money saved on computer purchase, maintenance and repair for your school.
