BenQ MP523 Projector

Styled to delight
The elegant design of the MP523, with its snowy white housing, strikes a perfect balance between classic good looks and a high-tech visual sense. Its clean lines and spare ornamentation let it blend in artfully with any environment, whether in your home or out.

XGA (1024 X 768) resolution for vibrant images with precision color and detail.

Texas Instruments' advanced on-chip BrilliantColor™ technology boosts mid-tone colors, increasing overall brightness and producing a more vibrant picture.

Wall Color Correction
Wall color correction provides optimized viewing experience for different surfaces, such as a classroom blackboard, that might be used to display content instead of a regular projector screen.

Auto Source (Auto Search)
The MP523 will automatically scan for attached video sources, sparing you the hassle of manually locating them. Just plug in the source and almost instantly your show is ready to go.

Auto Off
The BenQ MP523 is smart enough to turn off automatically when no input is detected for a period of time, not only saving power but also preventing possible overheating.

Up To 4,000 Lamp Hours
The BenQ MP523's lamp life of up to 4000 hours in economic mode—the equivalent of five hours of use every day for a year, keeping maintenance costs low.
