BenQ Unveils Blue Core Laser Projector Line for Education Market

BenQ recently unveiled its first Blue Core laser projector trio designed for the classroom.

The ultra-short-throw WXGA LW890UST and 1080p LH890UST are “the first interactive K-12 laser projectors from the new Blue Core family that can be configured for either pen or touch interactivity,” according to BenQ.

WUXGA LU950

With HDMI out for multiple screen applications and HDBaseT support to connect a variety of devices, the WUXGA LU950 projector is best suited for higher education classrooms and lecture halls. 

Each projector delivers high-contrast lessons without lamps, filters or color decay and is available to public and private schools for a special education price starting from $1,997.

BenQ’s dual color wheel Blue Core laser technology is at the heart of these new education projectors, boasting more saturated colors, even in high ambient lighting conditions.

These projectors deliver 20,000 hours of use without needing to change a lamp and are “immune to color decay,” according to the BenQ announcement.

The projectors’ high ANSI contrast renders text and numbers, making them nice fits for science and art classes. Unlike lamp-based projectors, BenQ’s Blue Core lasers power on and off.

LH890UST

The LW890UST and LH890UST projectors can be configured for either pen or touch interactivity. Using the module’s intuitive templates and annotation tools, students and teachers are able to collaborate, creating a truly immersive learning environment.

An optional wireless QCastMirror dongle enables BYOD collaboration for mobile device integration.

The LW890UST and LH890UST projectors’ ultra-short-throw performance allows them to be mounted as close as 3.2 inches from the wall and project images up to 150 inches on a wall or whiteboard with no shadows or glare.

They also include a new tool-free mount design that enables the teacher to adjust the projected image to fit on a whiteboard or wall in seconds.

Higher Ed Benefits

For higher education classrooms, the LU950’s zoom allows schools to standardize with flexibility in mind. HDBaseT compatible, it allows multiple sources to be connected, including PCs, laptops, document cameras and Blu-rays using a standard Cat-5 cable.

The additional HDMI output on the LU950 directly delivers a digital signal from projector to projector or other HDMI display devices with no signal degradation, creating a multi-screen classroom environment.
