The Eco Blank mode allows teachers to blank the projection screen whenever they need to direct their students’ focus back on them – or simply when the projector is not in use. When activated, this special feature dims the lamp power automatically, lowering the total power consumption by 70%. This will lower your maintenance costs. There is HDMI connectivity allowing you to connect to nearly all sources showing your content in high definition. Watch a video from a DVD player with no problem.

What BenQ say about the MW64UST
Requiring as little as 8cm projection distance for an 87” screen, MW864UST ultra-short throw projector can be mounted inches from the wall directly above the screen, eliminating distracting shadows and glare for students and teachers to engage and collaborate freely in front of the board.
For perfect projection performance, MW864UST produces 3,300 ANSI lumens and WXGA 1280x800 high resolution for clear, sharp images and text even in large, bright classrooms. High brightness allows lights to be kept on during lessons, and the wide-aspect high resolution increases readability for expanded content.
BenQ education projectors offer a range of resolutions and projected image sizes to meet diverse classroom needs. Featuring crisp image quality up to 100 inches, our ultra-short throw education projectors deliver increased classroom versatility at reduced costs.
MW864UST’s Total Internal Reflection (TIR) optical architecture eliminates the uneven brightness distribution of conventional projection. This next-generation optical engine precisely focuses the center and corners of the image, enhances corner uniformity by 30%, and evens out brightness uniformity for a smooth, comfortable viewing experience.
With industrial-grade durability from DLP technology, BenQ education projectors maintain the long-lasting picture perfection by eliminating color decay. Unlike non-DLP projectors, BenQ DLP education projectors look brand-new after lamp replacement. And with over two million micromirrors and minimal heat buildup, the DLP chip endures over 100,000 hours without degradation.
PointWrite™ technology works on any flat surface, so no expensive digital whiteboard or additional equipment is necessary. With the PointWrite™ module, images can be projected onto a desk or table for multiple students to easily share and write on the same screen, creating vast new opportunities for classroom interactivity and enabling possibilities for modern digital classroom.
PointWrite™ projectors offer multi-user capability, and two PointWrite™ projectors can be used to double the projection surface. With QWrite Whiteboard Mode, teachers can run different applications or display, view, and annotate across two monitors.
PointWrite™ projectors support intuitive Windows gestures such as zooming in and out or scrolling while browsing webpages, pictures or Google Maps. All multi-touch commands and gestures are supported for Windows 8 or above and future applications.
With MHL, teachers and students can share content from Android devices on the big screen, conducting the entire lesson from the smart device without draining its battery.
Severe dusty environments can damage sensitive electronics. To minimize service costs and downtime, MW864UST features sealed engine designed to protect the DLP Chip and key components of the light path.
BenQ education projectors turn on as soon as an HDMI or VGA is plugged in, significantly reducing setup time.
To help IT managers perform day-to-day projector maintenance effectively, MW864UST is widely compatible with leading projector control systems including Crestron, AMX, PJ-Link, and BenQ MDA for network control via LAN. BenQ Multiple Display Administrator (MDA) software enables powerful centralized monitoring, control, and power scheduling across school’s projector network from a single computer, offering full access and control over every projector directly.
For efficient professional installation, our ultra-short throw projector wall mount features an installation chart and ruler for perfect screen alignment and image position in the classroom. Even simpler, a three-way adjustment knob is located in front of the projector for cleanly installed, absolutely square screens.

About Just Projectors
We provide advice on the phone listening to your requirements we are able to help you get the right one as we have trained staff . We have a network of installers to cover your area. On higher end models we can arrange a loan or demo. We think most people should buy HD resolution , they are so affordable now and you wouldn't buy a 5 year old laptop so why buy SVGA which is over 20 years old. Yes XGA & WXGA are ideal for simple presentations and education use but we have all been use to decent home TV's or high resolution phones or tablets so why put a huge image on the wall/screen which is inferior. There are some great brands out there like BenQ, ViewSonic, Epson, Sony and less known ones like EIKI or Vivitek. Yes you can buy the wrong one, this is why we still offer advice rather than just an add to cart website. We have a price promise, we see the models, we often put one against another and see which one is best. We only buy UK stock, which has higher warranty standards to ensure you get real value for money. We don't sell the cheap brands as the lumens aren't verified.
