BenQ unveils dustproof projectors and germ-resistant interactive flat panels

From L-R: Sasha Huang, Projector Business Line Manager, BenQ Asia Pacific Corporation; Jeffrey Liang, President, BenQ Asia Pacific Corporation; and Eason Lu, General Manager, BenQ Service & Marketing (M) Sdn Bhd.

BenQ has unveiled a suite of display solutions for classrooms and boardrooms alike – ranging from germ-resistant Interactive Flat Panels (IFP), to dustproof projectors.

The 65-inch BenQ RP654K.

We’ll begin with the germ-resistant IFPs, of which there are three: the 65-inch RP654K, 70-inch RP704K, and 75-inch RP750K. Designed with classrooms in mind, these touch-sensitive 4K (3,840 x 2,160) IFPs are coated with multiple layers of durable, non-toxic, nano-ionic silver antimicrobial agent that eliminates most bacteria and viruses upon contact, keeping students safe from contracting any nasty germs or diseases during use.

The RP Series IFPs are also equipped with BenQ’s Smart Eye-Care solutions to protect the eyesight of students. The list includes an anti-glare display panel to reduce eye strain, as well as TÜV-certified flicker-free and blue light reduction technologies.

There are a couple of native applications that are pre-installed on the RP Series IFPs, including one called EZWrite 4.0, which essentially turns the entire display into an expansive digital whiteboard for both teachers and students to write and draw on.

We managed to do a little scribbling on the 65-inch RP654K earlier today, and noticed that it could register inputs from all ten of our fingers simultaneously. We were then informed by a BenQ representative that the RP Series IFPs are capable of registering up to 20 touch points simultaneously, making it ideal for group activities and collaborative work.

The BenQ DX 808 ST dustproof projector.

BenQ also showcased a range of dustproof projectors earlier today, such as the DX808ST, whose IP5X-rating essentially allows it to put up with potential dusty conditions of our public schools. To prevent dust particles from affecting its image quality, BenQ opted to seal the optical engine of the DX808ST completely, including its Digital Light Processing (DLP) chip, color wheels, and light path components. As an additional safety measure, the DX808ST has been given advanced dust filters that can block up to 90 percent of PM10 level particles, such as pollen and dust.

With regards to specifications, the DX808ST has a native display resolution of 1,024 x 768 (XGA), a brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens, and with normal use, a lamp lifespan of 5,000 hours. You can extend the lifespan of its lamp to 15,000 hours by using the projector in ‘LampSave’ mode.
