The BenQ MX511 Multimedia Projector 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 MX511 Multimedia Projector has integrated various display functions and multiple inputs. It's highlighted by XGA resolution, a brightness of 2700 ANSI Lumens and a 3000:1 contrast ratio. Considering the MX511 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 six-segment color wheel to reproduce a rich and accurate palate of crisp colors. The MX511 is also prepared for presentations and entertainment that require 3D technology. With 3D capabilities, it can project images in lifelike 3D and make your entertainment more exciting and your presentations more interactive. All you have to do is add the 3D glasses, content and video card along with the MX511.

Using the HDMI connection for 3D is ideal, but BenQ has integrated several inputs, control terminals and audio jacks with the MX511. Besides HDMI connectivity, you can use the RCA, S-video and component video inputs. Network connection is achievable through the RS-232 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 into the projector which is loud enough for most presentations.

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 MX511 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.

The projector integrates high-performance optical engine projection and a user-friendly design to deliver high reliability and ease of use.
