BenQ, consumer lifestyle and projector brand has come up with a new technology in the projector space – the SmartEco technology. BenQ has developed this technology to enable projectors to have better energy saving capabilities, thus increasing their lamp life. It also combines energy efficiency with optimized image contrast, which, according to the company, gives the projectors a longer lamp life, thereby reducing their operating and maintenance costs.

So, how does this work? SmartEco saves energy and increases lamp life by dynamically adjusting the lamp power based on the projected content. This is done without compromising on the picture quality and it’s an energy efficient way of lamp systems to adjust to different brightness settings. SmartEco also lets the projector compensate for this process with an internal software solution that maintains the ideal color spectrum whilst providing an improved contrast ratio. This technology produces no more light than absolutely necessary and always adapts to its own ideal – when the projected content contains dark elements, the lamp dims accordingly for those scenes without any loss of visible brightness for the viewer. This mainly benefits in prolonging lamp life and reduction of energy consumption by upto 70 percent.
The BenQ projectors featuring SmartEco technology are now available in five models, MS513, MW516, MW712, MX813ST, & MX850UST. More information is available on their home page.
