In business, meetings are essential; client consults, brainstorming sessions, video conferencing, just to name a few. We meet to communicate, to collaborate, to share - and in the era of BYOD (Bring Your Own Devices), we find ourselves in a horrid huddle peering over a client’s or colleague’s shoulder at a phone or tablet. Alternatively, we play “pass the device”.


The fact is we are visual creatures. According to experts, 90% [1] of information transmitted to the brain is visual and 63% of us are visual learners [2]. We need to “see” the idea, the words, the diagram – and the bigger the better. Imagine a projector that mirrored your device with ease. A projector that could share content directly from your phone, tablet or laptop - and switch to everyone else’s in the room with ease – no IT expert required.

Meet the BenQ Smart Projector for Business.
