Reduced power consumption by up to 50%, better image quality and longer usable lamp life
As the first DLP® brand to incorporate Philips’ ImageCare technology into its projector lamp system, BenQ has taken a further leap, developing its own SmartEco technology to perfect what DLP can do for energy saving. SmartEco combines energy efficiency with optimized image contrast and a longer lamp life. This technological innovation enhances the imaging performance and reduces operating and maintenance cost of projectors.
SmartEco saves energy and increases lamp life by dynamically adjusting the lamp power based on the projected content. This is done without compromising on picture quality: the projector shows improved contrast while keeping its full brightness. SmartEco’s technological breakthrough is in the lamp systems energy efficient way of adjusting to different brightness settings. SmartEco lets the projector compensate for this process with an internal software solution that maintains the ideal color spectrum and also provides an improved contrast ratio. This revolutionary technology produces no more light than absolutely necessary and always adapts to its own ideal.
When the projected content contains dark elements the lamp dims accordingly for those scenes without any loss of visible brightness for the viewer. This benefits users in multiple ways – mainly prolonging lamp life by up to 80% and reduction of energy consumption by up to 50%.
Adams Lee, president of BenQ Europe states: “SmartEco is a big breakthrough in projector technology, the kind you'll only see once in a number of years. This innovation brings very meaningful benefits to our users, especially to those in the education and corporate segment. On top of that SmartEco represents a green development: it makes projector usage more friendly to the environment.”.
The first BenQ business and education projectors featuring SmartEco technology are available since the beginning of September.
