As the first DLP brand to incorporate Philips' ImageCare technology into its projector lamp system, BenQ has taken a further leap, developing its own SmartEco Technology to perfect what DLP can do for energy saving in the 21st century classroom. Built with this brand new invention, the MX518 brings together uncompromised brightness, exquisite picture quality and optimized lamp life through innovative features.
Eco Blank Mode
The Eco Blank mode allows teachers to blank the projection screen whenever they need to direct their students' focus back on them – or simply when the projector is not in use. When activated, this special feature dims the lamp power automatically, lowering the total power consumption by 70%.

To enable easy access for everyone, the I/O ports are clearly printed on the projector housing so users can find the port they need straight away. No squinting your eyes or bending over for a closer look.
The Instant Restart feature gives teachers a 90-second window period to turn the projector back on immediately when it has been switched off by accident – no waiting necessary.
Cooling time itself has been reduced by over 60%, saving your time and minimizing the risk of heat damage to sensitive internal components.
To make your teaching job easier, BenQ has added the teaching template function to the MX518. Now, with four different line pattern designs to choose from – Letter Formation, Musical Staff, Worksheet and Coordinate Chart, you can easily write or draw on whiteboards as well as blackboards without the need of drawing lines or charts.
