Las Vegas, NV (Jan 5, 2006) - BenQ, a leading manufacturer of digital lifestyle devices, today launched the new MP770 digital projector, which offers a high brightness level, strong image quality and versatile connectivity via an optional wireless feature that make the unit ideal for open environments such as classrooms and conference rooms. Weighing only 6 lbs and featuring XGA native resolution of 1024 x 768, a brightness of 3200 ANSI lumens and a 2000:1 contrast ratio, the MP770 provides the feature set of a higher-end, fixed-installation projector in a portable projector package.
The MP770 delivers high-end color quality through its unique color matching technology that features BenQ’s proprietary Golden Ratio Color Wheel, which balances true color saturation and maximizes color accuracy to achieve the sRGB (standard Red Green Blue) specification. Defined by Microsoft and HP, sRGB creates color-matching between applications and hardware devices, such as monitors, scanners, printers and digital cameras to ensure that whatever users see on their computer screen will be exactly the same as what they will get from their projector.
In addition, the Golden Ratio Color Wheel provides high-grade color reproduction to produces more natural flesh tones by delivering better color saturation on red and blue than standard RGB without sacrificing green. This feature enhancement brings a rich true color picture to all video formats, especially DVD, high definition television or sporting event.
The MP770’s optional wireless function enables a cable-free connection, where users can switch from one presenter to another without the hassle of swapping VGA cables from system to system. The wireless feature supports all three high speed wireless protocols (i.e., IEEE802.11a/b/g) for optimum flexibility when connecting to a network.
