The BenQ MS614 is a comprehensive projector, flexible enough for most applications. It offers plenty of control, letting you easily navigate menu screens to change settings. To ensure you'll have smooth presentations and adaptability, the MS614 has integrated various display functions and multiple inputs. It's highlighted by SVGA resolution, a brightness of 2700 ANSI Lumens and a 5000:1 contrast ratio. Considering the MS614 has features that ensure high-quality picture performance in several conditions, it's hard to think of an application that would be out of its range.

The display is enhanced by several features including BrilliantColor technology, which uses a five-segment color wheel to reproduce a rich and accurate palette of crisp colors. The Wall Color Correction adjusts the color to get the optimum picture quality when projecting on a background that is not totally white. The MS614 is also prepared for presentations and entertainment that require 3D technology. With 3D capabilities, it can project images in life-like 3D and make your entertainment more exciting and your presentations more interactive.

Using the HDMI connection for 3D is ideal, but BenQ has integrated several inputs, control terminals and audio jacks with the MS614. Besides HDMI connectivity, you can use the RCA, S-video and component video inputs. Network connection is achievable through the RS232 terminal. The dual PC inputs give you the power to connect multiple computers to one projector, which is a plus for presentations. The more options you have, the more you'll get out of each presentation. The audio jacks facilitate mic input and audio output to an external source. There is also a 2W stereo speaker built-in to the projector which is loud enough for most presentations.

The USB terminals offer several conveniences. They allow you to give PC-less presentations through a USB flash drive. They also offer plug-and-play possibilities and extension support for simultaneous multi-projection display. With an optional BenQ wireless adapter you can also use the USB port to display presentations from your computer wirelessly and execute centralized network control via WLAN connectivity.

For teachers, BenQ has instituted a teaching template function. Aiding educators with four pre-programmed line pattern designs, the template eliminates the need to waste class-time drawing lines for charts, tables, music, etc. The four different designs are projected on your whiteboard and students can easily write music or do work along the lines supplied by the teaching template.

Also great for teachers, the built-in closed caption decoder converts words into subtitles. The subtitles are projected onto the screen, addressing the needs of language students and hearing-impaired viewers. The MS614 is also equipped with a quick cooling option, high altitude mode and MyScreen technology that lets you individualize title screens with your own pictures or video. With so many features and display improvements, the MS614 is a versatile and flexible projector that can be used as an educational tool, but it is adaptable enough to fit seamlessly into your home theater as well.

BrilliantColor Technology
Delivering rich all-digital clarity with life-like color, sharp graphics and outstanding video. The impressive 5-segment color (RGBWY) wheel affords greater color accuracy and detail
3D-Ready Technology
Allows for 3D signals to pass through and be projected on the viewing screen. Perfect for higher education applications, images are rendered in stunning 3D, adding a new dimension to viewing scientific, architectural and engineering imagery. The 3D video content must be in field sequential format, a high end graphic card and special electronic shutter glasses are required
Wall Color Correction
Projecting on surfaces with multiple shades of white, beige, yellow, etc. is necessary sometimes. This feature adjusts the display to optimize projection on surfaces of several predefined colors
USB Display
Enjoy the plug-and-play convenience of USB connection. The automatic resolution detection makes adjustments to ensure you get the best image presentation and extension support makes possible simultaneous multi-projection display
PC-Less Presentations
The USB Reader function enables a JPEG presentation through the USB flash drive. It provides a simple alternative to computer connection and wire congestion during presentations. The USB Reader is quick and clean. Plug, play and present
HDMI Connectivity
The MS614 supports HDMI signal transfer which provides the highest-quality A / V experience. HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is an uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface via a single cable. It also dramatically simplifies cabling
Dual PC Inputs
The MS614 can facilitate two computer connections at once. Pulling data from multiple sources simultaneously will only avail your efforts to give effective presentations
MyScreen
In addition to selecting the projector preset startup screen from among the BenQ logo, black or blue screen, you can make your own startup screen that is a picture projected from your computer or video source
Thoughtful Teaching Template Design
To make your teaching job easier, BenQ has added the teaching template function. With four different line pattern designs to choose from, you can easily write or draw on whiteboards as well as blackboards without the need of drawing lines or charts. Letter Formation, Musical Staff, Worksheet and Coordinate Chart are the four pattern designs
High Altitude Mode
The MS614 has an option for operating under more extreme conditions. To prevent shut-off in harsher environment and at elevation, switch to high altitude mode
Closed Captioning
You can display subtitles in video content without the need for an external closed-captioning device. It's perfect for viewing in educational settings such as language classes where a transcript of onscreen dialog is desirable
On-Screen Display Languages
Bulgarian/ Croatian/ Czech/ Danish/ Dutch/ English/ Finnish/ French/ German/ Greek/ Hungarian/ Indonesia/ Italian/ Japanese/ Korean/ Norwegian/ Polish/ Portuguese/ Romanian/ Russian/ Simplified Chinese/ Spanish/ Swedish/ Turkish/ Thai/ Traditional Chinese (26 Languages)
Long Lamp Life
At up to 5000 hours in Eco-mode, the enduring lamp life of the MS614 limits the number of lamp changes you'll have to perform. This reduces maintenance and waste, resulting in a lower cost of ownership
Quick Cooling
This function can be turned on to make the projector cool in a shorter amount of time
Security Password
For security purposes and to help prevent unauthorized use, the projector includes an option for setting up password security. The password can be set through the On-Screen Display menu

          Great projector to work with... plug and play option is nice. My staff enjoys the fact that they don't have to be techy to make it work. I was happy to see that it came with a protective case, especially since my staff is in the road alot.

            I took the projector out the box, Easy hookup and an explosion of high definition color, crisp lines. I believe I have an 80" screen, all I know is its huge. I hooked up my stereo which produces movie like sounds. I don't even watch my 50" plasma anymore. This projector has still frame capture and pip. Can't beat this for the price. This is a awesome buy.

              We bought this as a back-up unit for when my team gets kicked out of the main conference room. I like that we can stash it in a file cabinet, without taking up much space, and set it up quickly on my desk, thereby turning my office into a quick conference room.

              The projector is easy and straightforward to use, light and compatible and can easily be transported for use in different venues. I am using it even with all the lights on and still get a clear projection on the screen. This is excellent where the projector has to be used where the venue cannot be darkened. It can be switched off immediately and can be used at high altitudes. The sound is not good enough, but even small loudspeakers can easily be connected.

                  We use this product for indoor team building presentations and programs. We often need to present information or videos in a conference room with all the lights on and needed a projector that would still produce a strong, bright image and this projector does just that. It is also very flexible with the input and output connections to use it with other systems such as gaming consoles which is great for us. The only feature that I think would be a good addition is a TV Tuner which would allow us to use it more personally. [...]
