With a 0.47 throw ratio the MW843UST 3000-Lumen WXGA Ultra-Short Throw DLP Projector from BenQ is optimized for classroom and other applications where the projector is to be mounted or placed very close to the screen (less than 45" is recommended). A single lamp provides 3000 ANSI lumens brightness in Normal Mode, and a single-chip DLP imaging device renders a 1024 x 768 (WXGA) resolution, 4:3 aspect ratio image. Through scaling the projector can also support a range of non-native resolutions, up to Full HD (1920 x 1080) for video and UXGA (1600 x 1200) for computer sources.

Multiple ports allow the MW853UST to receive video from a variety of sources, including computers, Blu-ray Disc and DVD players, document cameras, and more. It features two VGA ports which also support component video sources when using a separately available component to VGA adapter, an HDMI port, an S-video port, and a composite port. A VGA output mirrors the selected VGA input so that you can connect a computer monitor or pass the video along to a second downstream device without a distribution amplifier. There are also two analog audio inputs and a single analog audio output to loop audio through to a sound system or amplified speakers. Providing direct audio output there are two built-in 10-watt speakers.

An IR remote is included for local operation. The projector can also be managed centrally via RS-232C or Ethernet. This means you can use automation systems such as Crestron or even access settings from a Web browser running on a computer that is sharing the same network. A unique IP address means multiple projectors of the same or similar model can reside on the same network and be managed independently.

Because of the close throw distance, the projector is designed primarily for wall mount installation. A wall mount kit is included.

Ultra-Short Throw Design
With a 0.47 throw ratio it is possible to render a 120"-diagonal image with the projector mounted 45" away from the screen. By wall mounting at such a close distance the risk of shadow interference and dazzling specular reflections is greatly reduced.
3000 Lumens Lamp
A single lamp (spare: 5J.JCA05.001) provides 3000 lumens brightness in Normal mode, and is estimated to last 3500 hours (up to 7000 hours in the lower brightness SmartEco Mode). To determine the ideal brightness level for your application, you will need to take into account the screen width, distance from the projector to the screen (throw distance), amount of ambient light near the screen, and the reflectivity (gain) of the screen surface used.
4:3 Native Aspect Ratio
This projector features the XGA format, which produces a 4:3 aspect ratio picture optimal for PowerPoint presentations and many still images formats. The wider 16:9 HDTV and 16:10 computer aspect ratios can still be displayed - either by cropping the sides of the image, "letterboxing" (filling the remaining space with black bars top and bottom), or applying an anamorphic squeeze which distorts the picture.
Single Chip DLP Technology
Uses a combination of a chip covered in millions of micro-mirrors and a color wheel to produce an image. DLP features less spacing between pixels and better contrast than many comparable LCD-based systems.
SmartEco Power Saving Mode
By detecting the input content to determine the amount of brightness required for optimum color and contrast performance, the SmartEco Mode is designed to reduce lamp power while maintaining consistent image quality.
Eco Blank Mode
Allows teachers or presenters to blank the projection screen whenever they need to direct focus back on them and not the image - or simply to save power when the projector is not in use. This mode can be configured to kick in automatically after three minutes of inactivity and the projector can automatically power off completely after 30 minutes of inactivity.
BrilliantColor Technology
Enables up to six-color processing by incorporating the secondary colors Yellow, Cyan, and Magenta along with primary Red, Blue, and Green to help provide more accurate color reproduction.
RS-232 and Ethernet Controllable
An RS-232 port means the projector can be controlled from a computer running custom software or via automation system such as Crestron. Meanwhile an Ethernet port allows it to be controlled across a local network using a Web browser.
