Product Info

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 Classroom
Good news when buying an education projector for your classroom, the projector manufacturers want your business so they offer you extra features such as extended warranties like de install/re install (please check with us as every model is different) lamp warranties. When I first started this business in 2001, I was selling 800 Lumens SVGA projectors to schools for over £1000, nowadays you can get a 2500 Lumen XGA for under £300, how times have changed, so now is the time not to buy SVGA any longer. Only 3 manufacturers still produce it and unless you can't afford the extra £50 to get almost a 50% better image then buy SVGA. The laptops and PC's you have purchased in the last 3 years have such high resolutions that SVGA struggles on anything bigger than a 4ft wide image. The single most important thing to do when buying a replacement classroom projector which is installed is know your throw ratio. This is easy to work out. Measure the distance back the current projector is from the wall/screen/iwb say its 300 cm, then measure the image size you want whether that is to fill a projector screen or just a desired size on the wall, let's say this is 180 cm . Divide 300/180 = 1.67 this is throw ratio. Not all projector will have this throw ratio, of course most of them have a range say 1.5-1.8 , that means 1.67 would be fine, but something like the Optoma's that have 1.95-2.15 will produce the grown size image. If you are unsure of your throw ratio or you just can't measure then call us with your old model, we can work this out for you. it is no point looking at any projector until this is sorted if its replacement projector. Once that is all sorted then buying a classroom projector really is now a choice of standard throw or short throw, this of course depends again if its a replacement but if its not and you have a new requirement then the trend for classroom projectors is short throw, there is no shadow , no glaring in the teachers eyes, installed on the wall rather than long cable runs, easier to change the lamps. Yes they are more expensive so maybe not a choice for everyone. Remember lumens is important when buying a education projector for your school as you don't really want to have to pull the blinds down, and there is no need to do this now with projectors having high lumens for very little money. Be brave go for 2700-3200 and see the change from your projector that was 1800 lumens struggling on a bright day. It is important to note that a short throw classroom projector with a lumens of even 2000 will be the same as a standard throw projector of 3800 lumens as the distance the image has to go is significantly shorter. Resolution for schools should be XGA or WXGA , go for the wider screen WXGA as they is how formats have changed from 4:3 to 16:10 in recent years but of course if you have a 4:3 interactive whiteboard you need to pair that with a 4:3 projector resolution such as XGA. So again if this is a new requirement for the classroom and you haven't yet brought the screen and projector then go for WXGA. There are some bright 1080p projectors out there at sub £1000 and if you have good budget and say its for a art or media classroom then it would be worth it as yet again you are improving the quality. Not really 1080p for day to day classroom use yet but maybe the next time you buy that will be the new standard. Projectors for schools need to be flexible in connectivity, the VGA connection is beginning to be phased out by PC manufacturers and the new standard is HDmi , so getting a HD ready projector with a Hdmi connection makes the most sense, again you add say £20 to the purchase cost but it will be future proof. The strong Education brands traditionally have been Epson & NEC offering the best warranties but other brands such as BenQ are well worth a look. Just Projectors have a large education client base with many councils using us as their preferred supplier, we are popular because we can help your school on the phone, listen to your specific needs, provide a complete installation service if you want and help you get the best classroom projector. of course our web prices are a guide, there is always improvements that can be made on 5+ deals, and the larger ones 15+ we can get special pricing from the manufacturer to support a discounted price. Give Just Projectors a chance to supply your classroom projector. A case study of replacement projectors for a classroom, we were asked by a London school based in Greenwich to find a replacement for their seven Sanyo XE32's which were no longer bright enough and had faded, the replacement lamp cost was significant and there had been some failures. All of these projectors were installed and the school didn't want to move the mounts, all the mounts were universal. The first thing to do was see the old spec as the resolution was OK, XGA but the brightness wasn't enough 2000 lumens, as prices had changed since the XE32 were purchased and lumens was more affordable it was decided to go for 3000 Lumens , XGA. The next thing was to deal with the slightly strange throw ratio of the Sanyo XE32 1.77-2.17 , if this wasn't taken into consideration then the image would either be too big for the screen or too small. To keep the price down the measurements were taken for each room as they had not been placed in a uniform position, it turned out that the throw ratios ranged from 1.9 -2.1 and this was great news as there was a more affordable choice. We supplied the IN114a for under £300 pre vat, we did give a discount for purchasing over 5 and we carried out the installation one week later. The new projectors are performing well in the classroom and the brightness issue had been resolved. We did consider whether to go to widescreen but it was felt with all the screens being 4:3 it was best to stick to XGA for the time being.

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 tables so why put a huge image on the wall/screen which is inferior. There are some great brands out there BenQ, Infocus, Epson 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.
