BenQ America has expanded its affordably priced BlueCore laser projector lineup with the launch of new 4,000- and 5,000-lumen models. The LU710 and LU930 offer WUXGA resolution while the LH710 and LH930 boast 1080p resolution, providing organizations budget-minded options to update their meeting rooms with state-of-the-art technology. Furthering the value of the LU and LH series, says BenQ, they eliminate the cost of replacing lamps used by lamp-based projectors, as well as the time spent cleaning filters, with an IP5X-sealed and certified filter-free chassis that protects against dust.

BenQ’s LU710, LU930, LH710, and LH930 all feature the company’s BlueCore IP5X-certified, dustproof, filter-free laser engine. Each projector features BenQ’s high-output laser source, guaranteed for 20,000 hours of maintenance-free operation, which the company says saves costs for lamp replacement and maintenance. The projector’s DLP chip is hermetically sealed so that it can resist heat for over 100,000 hours without degradation. In addition, the engine has earned an international dustproof protection rating of IP5X, ensuring dust doesn’t damage the projector.

The new projectors also feature Rec. 709 color coverage. By increasing color ratios, they are said to enhance color saturation in presentation quality.

With the LU710 (WUXGA) and LH710 (1080p) offering 4,000 ANSI lumens brightness and the LU930 (WUXGA) and LH930 (1080p; image shown) delivering 5,000 ANSI lumens of brightness, these projectors are said to produce clear images in both dark and well-lit spaces. Further enhancing presentations is BenQ’s new LumiExpert technology, which automatically detects the ambient light conditions of the room and adjusts the projector’s brightness to maximize clarity and comfort.

Each projector also features an advanced Infographic Mode that is said to clarify and enliven graphics and text used in presentations. Infographic Mode further offers enhanced brightness and better color gradation for eye-friendly presentations.

The BlueCore laser projectors will power up in half the time and with less power consumption versus lamp-based projectors, says BenQ. And the signal power-on feature turns the projector on automatically once an input signal from VGA or HDMI is detected.

“Our LU and LH BlueCore series projectors enable every IT manager to swap out their legacy projectors and affordably upgrade to a high-brightness laser,” said Carly Burton-Sallay, digital marketing manager at BenQ America. “With the same dust-protection certification earned by the most popular mobile and smartwatch technology, they offer the ultimate package for superior presentations and collaboration with the benefit of a lower total cost of ownership.”
