BenQ MP610 multimedia projector
The BenQ MP610 projector at 2.72kg has been specifically designed for people who travel around to make presentations. It is light enough to be transported with ease especially if you are also carrying your notebook computer at the same time.
The brightness of a projector determines how large an image can be displayed on screen and therefore the audience size. Projector brightness is measured in ANSI lumens. The higher the number of ANSI lumens, the brighter the projector is. All our projectors are designed for indoor use and cannot be used in direct sunlight. The BenQ MP610 has 2000 ANSI lumens for use for audiences up to 60 people.
This projector is for use with computers that display a 800x600 (SVGA) pixel image. You can check the resolution of your computer on a Windows computer by opening the Control Panel and double-clicking on the Display icon. Then click on the Settings tab. Please note that most notebook and desktop computers produced in the last 2 years now use the 1024x768 (XGA) resolution. This projector can display a 1024x768 image but uses a method called compression to display the 1024x768 lines into a 800x600 display area. To do this lines are missed out which doesn't give as good an image as a projector designed for XGA. However, you can lower the resolution on your computer to 800x600 when designing and giving presentations if necessary.
The BenQ MP610 projector can be used with video recorders, DVD players, video cameras, satellite systems, TV games consoles and other video sources. The computer resolution does not affect the video preformance and has a lower buy price that an similar XGA projector.
This projector has built-in sound but this gives limited volume. If high quality or high volume sound is required then consider connecting to an amplifier or surround sound system (home cinema or professional). Computer sound can be played through the existing computer speakers which is normally adequate for computer presentations in small rooms.
This projector has a lamp life of approximately 2000 hours. Projectors come with a lamp installed but please note that replacement lamps usually cost between £300-£400+VAT for most projectors on the UK market. The lamp life of the BenQ MP610 projector is around average of most UK projectors, but a few projectors have higher lamp life.
The BenQ MP610 projector is new and comes with a 3 year manufacturers RTB (Return To Base) warranty, excluding the lamp and excluding accidental damage. RTB means that you will have to send the projector back to the manufacturer for repair and then they will send it back to you repaired. However the first year is swap out with the 2nd and 3rd year being RTB.
This projector is supplied with all cables needed to connect to a PC notebook or desktop computer. If you will be using this with an Apple Macintosh computer or UNIX workstation, then you may need to purchase additional cables. This machine is not supplied with video cables. Scart or S-Video cables can be purchased from local electronic goods stores such as Dixons or Curry's for around £10 in the UK.
