Optimized for boardrooms, classrooms, and other presentation applications, the MW727 WXGA DLP Multimedia Projector from BenQ features a brightness of 4200 lumens and a native resolution of 1280 x 800 (WXGA). To help provide flexibility in terms of placement relative to the screen, it features a 1.3x optical zoom with a 1.2 to 1.57:1 throw ratio. In addition to its native resolution, it can be connected to a range of devices from 480i up to WUXGA (1920 x 1200) thanks to internal scaling.
The projector features two HDMI inputs for computers, HDTV appliances, document cameras, HDMI-enabled mobile devices, and more. One of the HDMI inputs features MHL support, meaning it can power a compatible mobile device through the same connection used by the HDMI signal. For legacy analog devices, there are two VGA inputs, plus a single VGA output so that one of the VGA signals can be passed along to a monitor, second projector, or other secondary display. One composite and one S-video input allow VCRs, DVD players, SD camcorders, and other analog SD equipment to be connected. Finally, there are two analog audio inputs, one on RCA connectors that is paired with the composite/S-video inputs, and one on a 3.5mm connector to accompany the VGA inputs. There is also a 3.5mm mic input so that audio from a presenter's microphone can be piped through the projector's 10 watt speaker. As an alternative to the speaker, there is a 3.5mm audio output for use with amplified speakers or a separate sound system.
An IR remote is included for local control or you can use buttons on the projector itself if it is accessible. There is also RS-232 for operation from automation systems like Crestron or using custom software. A 12V low-voltage control trigger (LVC) ports mean the projector can trigger another A/V appliance, such as having a screen to raise or lower automatically. An Ethernet port enables Web-browser operation with PJLink and other software as well as remote projection across a local network.
