BenQ, an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions, is introducing a major paradigm shift in projection technology with the new lamp-free, filter-free LW600ST. The short-throw WXGA projector boasts 4LED technology to produce a bright, 2,800-ANSI lumen picture with 95% Rec. 709 color coverage for accurate projection and a high 20,000:1 native contrast for sharp images. In addition to eliminating lamps, the LW600ST features 15% less power consumption and a chassis made from recycled plastic — helping schools, businesses, and other organizations cut down on waste, curb energy use, and achieve sustainable best practices.
"The LW600ST is the clear upgrade path from lamp-based projection," said Bob Wudeck, senior director of business development at BenQ. "The reality is that lamp-based business projectors can be problematic and expensive. Not only are fewer lamp projector models left, but lamps can cost half the price of the projector, their brightness diminishes from the first moment of use, and they are filled with mercury, which can require special handling and disposal. The maintenance-free, eco-friendly LW600ST fills the gap in the market using high-quality 4LED technology at a price point that can't be beat."
Solving the Lamp Problem Once and for All
The BenQ LW600ST is the solution for the shrinking lamp supply chain and a much more sustainable and affordable alternative to disposable projectors that use non-replaceable mercury lamps or more expensive laser projectors. The LW600ST features a 4LED sealed engine, which uses the same LED technology found in high-end displays and offers many of the same benefits as laser projection.
Delivering Color-Accurate Presentation
Whether projecting attendees in virtual meetings or color-specific marketing, creative, or scientific content, color accuracy is a critical detail. With the LW600ST projector, BenQ leverages its years of expertise in the detail-oriented cinematic, medical, and esports markets to deliver 95% Rec.709 color accuracy — ensuring that content, from skin tone to logo colors, appears as intended. In addition, its highly vibrant colors combine with strong brightness to create an eye-catching H-K Effect, providing an immersive and realistic viewing experience. Various color modes — such as BenQ's exclusive Golf Mode for golf sim setups — allow users to easily choose the preferred color tuning for different scenarios.
A Sustainable, Green Projector
The LW600ST presents a sustainable alternative to lamp-based projectors. First, it offers a lamp-free LED light source, eliminating toxic mercury-based lamps. Second, the light source draws 15% less power compared to traditional lamps. Third, it boasts a 20,000-hour lifetime that can be boosted to 30,000 hours in Eco Mode, helping to further ROI and improve electronic waste management. Finally, the chassis is made of post-consumer recycled materials.
Eliminating Costly, Time-Consuming Maintenance
Projector filters are a maintenance nightmare, which is why the LW600ST completely eliminates them. Like many of the projectors in BenQ's family, the LW600ST features a filter-free, dustproof design, ensuring long-lasting and reliable projection without worrying about regular cleaning or filter replacement. The result is a long-lasting projector that lowers costs due to replacement parts and labor, allowing organizations to achieve a much greater ROI.
A Good Fit Just About Anywhere
The LW600ST boasts easy setup for big pictures in small spaces. It features a 0.72 short throw ratio and a 1.2x zoom, which allows installers to replace outdated lamp-based projectors without repositioning existing ceiling mounts. The LW600ST projects a 180" image from less than 9 feet, which prevents people or objects from getting in the way and casting a shadow on the screen. It's also equipped with 2D keystone and corner fit to ensure the image is correctly aligned post-installation. Furthermore, the LW600ST's Screen Fill capability is perfectly suited for retrofits using the same screen. Screen Fill provides easy aspect ratio switching, which adjusts to match the desired screen aspect ratio while maintaining image resolution.
