The MX816ST DLP Short Throw Projector from BenQ is a powerful, versatile projector that makes beautiful, vivid pictures thanks to its Texas Instruments DLP imaging panel. DLP panels not only make vibrant, crystal clear images, they don't require filters that have to be periodically cleaned and changed.

The MX816ST offers a 78" (2 m) XGA picture in only 39" (1 m) with a 0.6 ultra short-throw ratio. The MX816ST also has four picture modes specialized for brightly lit rooms, presentations, viewing photos and watching movies plus two "user" modes that allow you to save your own picture preferences.

The MX816ST can do lots more than make beautiful pictures. For one thing, it can make them all over the world. It's got an international auto switching 100 to 240 volt 50/60 Hz power supply that draws only 270W. That drops to less than one watt in standby mode. The MX711 can project video in the NTSC, PAL and SECAM international video standards too.

And speaking of international, its OSD (on-screen display) offers your choice of 28 languages. The MX816ST can handle 720p, 1080i and 1080p high definition projection and it's also compatible with a couple dozen Macintosh and PC resolution / sync rates. It can also display closed captioning from programming sources that provide them.

With 3000 ANSI lumens at a 13,000:1 contrast ratio those images will be vivid, detailed and true-to-life even if you can't achieve theater-level darkness in your projection venue.

Closed Captioning

Long Lamp Life at Up to 5000 Hours
Enjoy a lamp life performance of up to 5000 hours in eco mode- longer lamp life expectancy of average projector lamps on the market. This certainly lowers the number of lamp changes and keeps all maintenance to a minimum
No Source Detected Mode

SmartEco Mode
