The BenQ MS504 SVGA DLP Projector provides 3000 ANSI lumens of brightness and a 13,000:1 contrast ratio for clear, bright presentations - regardless of the ambient light in the room. It features a SVGA 800 x 600 native resolution, a DLP chip system and a LampSave Mode that supports a long lamp life up to 10,000 hours. The MS504 is equipped with SmartEco Technology as well, which combines optimum levels of brightness and picture quality for maximum energy savings and a lower overall cost of ownership.
SmartEco Technology is an innovative and environmentally friendly solution that enhances the energy saving capabilities of your projector's DLP system. It strikes an optimized balance between picture quality, brightness and energy efficiency. This allows students and teachers to get the most out of their classroom experience, while also helping the school by extending lamp life, minimizing maintenance and reducing the projector's total cost of ownership.
Smart Eco Mode
Designed to minimize power consumption and maximize energy efficiency, Smart Eco Mode cleverly adjusts the projector's lamp power by delivering optimum contrast and brightness levels that use only as much light as needed.
Projector lamp replacement costs make up the biggest part of the total cost of projector ownership. The LampSave Mode is designed to adjust the lamp power dynamically by content brightness level to extend projector lamp life by up to 50%. The lamp replacement frequency is also reduced by up to 50% to lower the replacement costs.
No Source Detected Mode
In the classroom, there will be times when the projector is turned on without a DVD player, computer or other display source connected. In order to reduce the amount of power wasted in these instances, BenQ created the No Source Detected Mode. It works by lowering the lamp brightness down to 30% after the projector has remained unconnected to a display source for more than three minutes.
<0.5W Standby Power Consumption
Even when inactive, projectors can still consume a lot of energy. To remedy this problem, the MS504 features a standby mode that keeps power consumption down to less than 0.5W when the projector is not in use. This will extend the projector's lamp life, lower your energy costs and even help protect the environment.
Audio Pass Through
With the built-in speaker, the MS504 can be used as an audio system when it's on standby mode. This saves you the trouble as well as the extra budget for getting a separate audio system.
Upper Lamp Door for Easy Lamp Access
The upper lamp door is designed to replace the projector lamp safely and quickly. Should the projector lamp go out in the middle of the class, it can be replaced without delaying the class.
To make your teaching job easier, BenQ has added the teaching template function to the MS504. It features four distinct line pattern designs to choose from including Letter Formation, Musical Staff, Worksheet and Coordinate Chart. Each one allows you to easily write or draw on whiteboards - and blackboards - without the need of drawing lines or charts.
By pressing the Quick Install key on the remote control, the installer can quickly access installation related functions in the OSD menu.
