End of line. Replacement model is the EB-720. The BenQ MX863UST projector is a total classroom interactive solution. It offers superior connectivity with ultra short-throw design, dual HDMI inputs and optional PointWrite interactivity. The 3,300 ANSI lumen brightness and lamp life are enhanced by the SmartEco technology for long lasting, reliable and vibrant images. With an ultra short-throw projector, teachers can project a large image from a short distance away. 

What Just Projectors say about the BenQ MX863UST

Corner Fit is the go-to feature for when the projector is used to project on restricted or uneven space, such as within a certain frame. It is a flexible and convenient way to correct each distorted corner to get a perfect rectangular image. Designed to help ensure a fail-proof projector installation, BenQ has implemented extra help into its wall mount design. This installer-friendly ultra short-throw projector wall mount features an installation chart and a measuring ruler to help you find the most suitable projector-screen alignment and image position for your classroom. 

With the support of MHL technology, teachers and students can share photos, videos, websites and even games from their Android smartphone or tablet instantly. Simply connect the smart device to a classroom projector via a MHL cable and watch the flawless mirroring of contents expanded onto the projector screen. 

The bright 3300 lumens means you can project with the lights on and curtains open. With the XGA resolution you will be able to project sharp images, data, presentations and short video clips. If you wish to project longer videos and movies we would recommend going up to WXGA resolution which is widescreen. The high contrast ratio will bring out the blacks from the whites for added depth. There is also a USB port for PC-free presentations. 

Overall, this is a great modern ultra short throw projector. Check out the PDF for more information. 

What BenQ say about the MX863UST

Requiring as little as 12cm projection distance for an 78” screen, MX863UST 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, MX863UST produces 3,300 ANSI lumens and XGA 1024x768 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.

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, MX863UST 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, MX863UST 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. Look at our name it tells you that we are committed to this product and we have a great reputation in the market place for price and customer service. We supply the UK but also in Ireland, we offer a 1-3 day service to Ireland.
