Show your presentations in nearly any environment with the BenQ MU686 3500-Lumen WUXGA DLP Projector. Its 3500 lumens of brightness will overcome ambient light in most situations, while its 20,000:1 contrast ratio will help keep images and text clear and distinct. Its 1.15 to 1.49:1 throw ratio and 1.3x zoom offer a range of installation options.
The MU686 has VGA, RCA composite, S-Video, and HDMI inputs to support various types of video sources. The HDMI input is MHL compatible for connecting mobile devices, and the USB Type-A port will provide power for your smartphone or tablet for the duration of the presentation. Its VGA output will allow you to daisy-chain multiple projectors or displays to allow them to show the same video source. A built-in 2W speaker eliminates the need for a separate speaker system, but the projector also features a 3.5mm mini audio output to connect external speakers. It is controllable via RS-232 and includes a VGA cable and an IR remote control.
With WUXGA native resolution up to 1920 x 1200, the MU686 supports resolutions from XGA, WXGA, and Full HD to WUXGA, offering clear images in all of your presentations.
High Brightness and Quiet 31 dB Operation
The MU686 pumps out 3500 lumens of brightness with only 31 dB of sound, even on full power, helping your presentation command the audience's full attention without distractions.
High 20,000:1 Contrast Ratio
The 20,000:1 contrast ratio helps ensure that every text, image, graph, chart, and video is projected with enhanced clarity and sharpness. This enables presenters to view their presentation files clearly and allows the audience to stay focused on the contents projected.
Independent 3D Color Management for Six Primary Colors
BenQ's 3D color management tool ensures enhanced color customization with the freedom to independently fine-tune the hue, grain, and saturation levels of all six primary colors (R/G/B/C/M/Y).
Auto Vertical Keystone
Auto vertical keystone correction enhances installation flexibility by correcting the trapezoid effect via vertical adjustments up to ±40°. It allows the projector to be placed off-center, and the presenter can stand in front of the screen without blocking the image.
1.3x Zoom for Long-Range Focus
The 1.3x zoom capability of the MU686 frees up space with a range of throw distances and projects images up to 300", giving you the flexibility of placing the projector nearly anywhere without compromising your decor.
Full HD Wireless Presentation from Your Smart Device with Optional QCast
Wireless streaming in Full HD resolution is activated with a touch of the QCast button on both the projector and remote control, and the control panel keeps all projector controls at your fingertips. The separately sold plug-and-play QCast Wi-Fi dongle is designed to plug into a hidden port, keeping the minimalist design uncluttered.
With the support of MHL technology, you can stream content from your smartphone or tablet instantly. Simply connect your device via an MHL cable and watch your smart device expand onto the projector screen.
Various 3D Formats Supported
The MU686 is equipped with DLP Link-supported 3D projection to offer you the same 3D effects seen in 3D movies. The 3D formats supported by the MU686 are 3D field-sequential, 3D frame packing, 3D top-and-bottom, and 3D side-by-side.
1.5A USB Type-A Power Supply
Users can charge their mobile devices through the onboard 1.5A USB Type-A power supply. You don't need to worry about your mobile device running out of battery life while streaming your presentation content during meetings.
The SmartEco Mode adjusts the lamp power to maximize power saving by using only as much light as needed.
If the projector is detected to be without a display source for over three minutes, the system will automatically switch to Eco blank Mode, eliminating unnecessary energy waste and prolonging the life of the projector lamp.
Auto Power Off
If the projector is found to be without a display source, the system will automatically turn off the projector, eliminating unnecessary energy waste and prolonging the life of the projector lamp.
0.5W Power Consumption in Standby Mode
When inactive, the MU686 keeps power consumption to a minimum (<0.5W standby power), helping to lower energy costs.
Designed to Last Long
The micro-mirrors of the DLP chip and the nearly-sealed DLP engine design will help the BenQ MU686 stand the test of time without any perceivable loss in picture quality by eliminating dust buildup and heat damage.
