BenQ America Corp., a visual technology and solutions provider, will unveil a new product lineup at the 2014 International CES that includes digital projectors, professional and gaming monitors, interactive large-format displays and LED lighting products.
"BenQ continues to experience above-market growth across several segments of the consumer electronics marketplace," Bob Wudeck, the company's associate vice president, strategy and business development, said in a news release. "With forward-thinking innovations such as our Colorific projector image quality, SmartEco energy-saving lamp technology, and RevolutionEyes enhanced visual monitor performance, BenQ is leading the way with purpose-built solutions that deliver incredible value and the very best user experience to our customers. We're looking forward to CES as we introduce a number of unique products to kickstart 2014."
The new lineup includes:
- BenQ's P Series of super-narrow bezel displays, which the company said is part of its comprehensive Public Information Display family. Unlike consumer-grade monitors, the company said, BenQ's PID screens have been deliberately designed for public venues that demand longer service life, higher dependability and increased environmental considerations. Features include a super-narrow bezel design; a multiple display administrator application that controls up to 98 displays while monitoring system status to prevent power surges; remote management capabilities via LAN controlled connectivity; color calibration to unify color profiles of all screens within large installations; and ambient light sensors that automatically adjust screen brightness to the lighting condition of the surrounding environment, reducing energy consumption by up to 50 percent.
- P Series Ultra High Brightness Professional Projectors — For professional A/V applications within the corporate setting, BenQ will highlight its new PW9500 large-venue projector. Combining high lumen brightness and flexible installation options, the PW9500 (WXGA) and PX9600 (XGA) professional projectors offer seven optional optical lens types with advanced functions such as motorized zoom/focus and powered lens shift. The models also provide new brilliant image performance with up to 6,500 lumens of ultra-high brightness, high contrast ratios, and HQV scaling for higher resolutions. With a new interchangeable color wheel system, the series gives integrators the ability to boost mid-tone colors for more lifelike picture quality and the flexibility to satisfy specific applications.
- IL640 Multitouch Display — Featuring Omnitapps Multi-Touch Software to bring interactive touchscreen experiences to learning environments, the large double-touch 64-inch screen provides HD resolution, latency-free navigation and ambient light sensors to adjust screen brightness automatically according to environmental lighting conditions — reducing energy consumption by up to 50 percent without impacting performance. With an ultra-high brightness of up to 1.07 billion colors, PIP/PBP capabilities, and two built-in 12W speakers, the result is the production of smooth, rich images with no visible color banding for extremely vivid content and quality sound that will captivate, inspire, and stimulate the minds of students.
The 2014 International CES runs Jan. 7–10 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
