SmartEco Lamp Saving Technology

Incorporating BenQ's renowned SmartEco Lamp Saving Technology, the MX522 not only offers greater energy savings to you, but continues to deliver amazing picture quality through this innovative technology. The SmartEco mode is designed to use only the exact amount of lamp power a projector needs to deliver the best contrast performance. With this feature, schools get to provide students and teachers uncompromised projection quality and reduce the total cost of ownership by extending the lamp life and lowering power consumption.

No Source Detected Feature

TThere will be times when a projector is turned on without a display source, such as a classroom PC or notebook. To avoid a projector from running with full lamp power, BenQ created the No Source Detected feature to lower the projector lamp brightness to 30% after the projector has remained unconnected to a display source for more than three minutes.

0.5W in Standby Mode

When inactive, the MX522 keeps power consumption to a minimum of 0.5W standby power further lowering your total cost of ownership.

MX522 is equipped with 3D Blu-Ray ready projection technology to bring you the same amazing 3D effects you get in 3D movies. Offered for no added cost, the 3D feature on 3D Blu-Ray ready BenQ projectors gives your audience an immersive real-life experience. Get ready to experience 3D like you've never seen it before!
