BenQ Corporation, a leading provider of networked digital lifestyle devices globally, today announced the launch of next generation LED monitors and educational projectors in the Middle East and Africa market. BenQ has brought to market the new G Series 19” W G920WL (16:10) and the 18.5” W G922HDL and V series the Full HD 1080p V2400 Eco and Full HD 1080p V2200 Eco, respectively, the world’s first 21.5” and 18.5” LED widescreen monitors along with a new range in Education Projectors.
Commenting on the launch of new products, Mr. Manish Bakshi, General Manager, BenQ, Middle East and Africa, said, “Just as LCD technology revolutionized the cathode ray tube display industry, the application of LED backlighting is anticipated to set new benchmarks in IT displays. As a leading global display provider in both CE and IT industries, with the launch today BenQ leads the charge in the mounting LED display revolution.”
He added: “Perfected for low-maintenance, long-lasting reliability, and easy, safe school use, BenQ’s Education Series Projectors lower total cost of ownership and maximize tight school budgets.”
The High Performance, Office friendly
By employing LED backlighting, namely LED (Light –emitting diode) the G Series and V series offers brilliant visuals that enhance productivity eye comfort in the workplace. Most notably, both G and V series exhibit zero light leakage, enabling an ultra-high dynamic contrast ratio (DCR) of 5 million:1. Such a near-infinite DCR translates to super-intense blacks, brilliant whites, and innumerable color variations in between so that all content – from fine text, graphs, chart, and tables to fast-action games and dark video scenery – are rendered in razor-sharp definition. Visual excellence is further enhanced by BenQ’s patented Senseye® 3 Human Vision Technology, which offers one-touch optimization of image richness, clarity, and depth using preset modes calibrated to specific applications: Standard (office and Internet), Movie (DVD and TV), Game, Photo, sRGB (for 100% color consistency across all sRGB devices), and Eco (for power-savings).
Designed with Earth in Mind
The V Eco monitors keep BenQ’s promise of “Lookin’ Great” not only when it comes to visual splendor, but also to energy conservation and environmental sustainability, while the G Series gives dual meaning to “Eco-friendly” by being both an ecologically responsible and an economically practical product. The panels are 100% mercury-free, which is a significant ecological advantage over traditional CCFL displays, and a noteworthy consideration for corporate users seeking to proactively comply with changing environmental regulations. LED technology also enables the G Series to use substantially less energy (approximately 60% less in G920WL and 43% in G922HDL) than CCFL displays of the same screen size. Additionally, the G Series increases office productivity by enabling simultaneous viewing of multiple applications on the large widescreen formats: a 16:10 aspect ratio on the G920WL (1440x900 WXGA+ resolution) makes side-by-side viewing of office documents easy and comfortable; a 16:9 aspect ratio on the G922HDL (1366x768 WXGA resolution) is perfect for undistorted viewing of HDTV and HD movies. And because LED is a stable light source, the G Series provides flicker-free performance ideal for long-term viewing (such as at the office) and improved visual comfort, giving user features such as D-Sub and DVI.
The energy-efficient, mercury-free LED panels of the V Series Eco consume approximately 36% less power than traditional CCFL displays. Additionally, the new models are lighter (-14.6%) and thinner (-21.2%) than CCFL displays of comparable screen size, which saves on packaging (+56%) and affords more efficient shipping.
The V2400 Eco and V2200 Eco are certified TCO 5.0, RoHS, EnergySTAR 4.1, EuP Energy, PC3R, and EPEAT Gold, and will be certified advanced EnergySTAR 5.0 in Nov ‘09. Both monitors have also received the Taiwan Green Mark and the China Environmental Label. Both G and V series LED monitors will be available in the Middle East and Africa region from mid October.
The cutting-edge long lasting Education Series Projectors
As the world’s top-selling DLP® projector brand, BenQ has the thriving education sector lookin’ great with an ingenious lineup of new models that will have teachers and district purchasers thinking, “Win-Win with BenQ.” Smart school features include filter-free technology, zero color decay, an intelligent Lamp Care System, industry-leading low noise levels, cool-touch temperatures, shatter-safe bulbs, and eye protection. The just introduced six education models also comprehensively cover all school scenarios: ultra short-throw for interactive whiteboards; 3D ability for enhanced instruction, Crestron® RoomView® LAN (Local Area Network) support for easy multi-projector monitoring; and XGA resolution for versatility, to name just a few. The new MP626, MP670, MP776, MP777, and new ultra short-throw MP772 ST and MP776 ST will now available across the region.
Education buyers will find BenQ’s new models to be winning choices when it comes to value and performance. Easy monitoring and protection features important to school IT buyers include Crestron RoomView LAN control and password protection. In addition, institutions equipped with any of BenQ’s new Education Series Projectors (which all come standard with RoomView Express software) on a Crestron network are capable of real-time, facility-wide management and control of up to 250 projectors in addition to all other AV devices such as screens, curtains, lighting, etc. From a single station, users can either individually control or as a group dictate the operation and status of all networked MP776 ST projectors: projector presence, power status, lamp life, and remote IT assistance. Purchasers will also be pleased by BenQ projectors’ low power consumption and easy installation.
Teachers will be equally won over by specifications that were clearly tailored to their needs. All six models are capable of 3D stereoscopic instruction, the latest advancement in education display that enhances learning by giving students a real-life visual representation of complex subject matter like anatomy, geometry, biology, and even history. Classroom instruction is also made more effective with advanced picture processing technologies such as BrilliantColorTM, VIDI TM, and updated color wheel.
