BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions, today announced the introduction of its new P Series line of professional installation projectors. Designed to bring top performance to commercial applications in education, retail, and corporate environments, the company's new projector family provides XGA and WXGA resolutions, up to 6,500 lumens of brightness, and flexible setup options for switchable color wheels and optional lenses — all at a competitive price point.

"Our new line of P Series projectors was engineered to provide the marketplace with a more affordable package for producing professional-grade projection within a wide range of settings," said Kristin Kennedy, Associate Vice President, Sales at BenQ America Corp. "Built with high-brightness capabilities, easy control options, and the ability to customize the projector's components to satisfy specific applications, our P Series is BenQ's latest value-centric innovation made to bridge the needs of customers with a cost-effective solution coupled with powerful features."

Consisting of the PX9600 and PW9500, the P Series' respective XGA and WXGA models deliver high brightness of 6,500 and 5,700 lumens as well as crisp 2800:1 contrast ratios — enabling Colorific™ picture-perfect clarity in any lighting scenario or installation environment for accurate, crisp, and long-lasting color reproduction. Equipped with HQV image processing, the technology allows the devices to scale outputs, enabling the projectors to cast full resolutions that enhance both image details and overall picture quality. The feature also reduces the mosquito effect and blocks the random noise often associated with compressed digital videos formats.

Shipped with both four-segment and six-segment color wheels, the projectors allow users to interchange the components based on specific installation requirements such as the need for increased brightness or more striking image quality. To further installation flexibility, the P Series features seven interchangeable lenses ranging from 3.4M short-throw optics to long zoom 16.41 – 24.71M capabilities in order to suit any projection distance. Now with motorized horizontal and vertical lens shift, and a powered 1.6 zoom ratio, the projectors enable easy centralized remote management for simpler setup versatility in any classroom, lecture hall, boardroom, or multipurpose auditorium.

Total flexibility is also facilitated by the P Series' 360-degree projection capabilities — bringing impressive multiscreen functionality to applications such as retail floors, galleries, and theater applications. With LAN control, the PX9600 and PW9500 enable control and monitoring over a single LAN cable, allowing IT managers to remotely manage and maintain devices directly from workstations. Both devices also feature PJLink compatibility and provide DVI and 5BNC connectivity points.

Available now, BenQ's PX9600 and PW9500 P Series projectors each retail for $3,999. More information on the full line of BenQ products is available at www.BenQ.us.
