The BenQ LW720 and LW820ST Deliver Unparalleled Value, Color, and Brightness to Every Classroom
COSTA MESA, Calif. — Jan. 13, 2021 — BenQ, an internationally renowned provider of visual display and collaboration solutions, today announced that Spring Independent School District (ISD) replaced its costly, failing lamp-based classroom projectors with BenQ’s LW Series LW720 and LW820ST BlueCore laser projectors. The 4,000-lumen WXGA LW720 and the short-throw 3,600-lumen WXGA LW820ST projectors deliver an ultra-bright, long-lasting, and maintenance-free image for 20,000 hours — about 10-12 years of use in a typical classroom.
“For the past 12 years, we went into every classroom, climbed a ladder, blew out dust, and changed the filter and bulb of every projector,” said Ben Leung, director of technical support services at Spring ISD. “That’s a lot of maintenance and costs we no longer have to worry about for years to come. If that wasn’t enough, we also have observed an almost 95% decrease in help desk tickets. BenQ BlueCore laser projectors have lowered our total cost of ownership so significantly it’s become our new district standard.”
With BenQ’s LW Series affordable education laser projectors, schools no longer have to reserve limited funds in the budget for lamps and maintenance. In addition to the lower cost of ownership, they improve classroom instruction with brightness and clarity that every student can see. The projectors employ BenQ’s dual color wheel systems to unleash outstanding color performance by increasing color ratios and purity of RGBY color, greatly enhancing color saturation and brilliancy at the same lumen output of lamp-based projectors to deliver superior viewing experiences. Furthermore, the projectors provide teachers with wireless presentation capabilities from their laptops. This allows them to collaborate with students and present without being chained to their desk or podium.
To ensure the lifespan of the projector as well as protect the laser brightness and color quality, the projectors are designed with BenQ’s DustGuard™ technology. Dust, when hit with the intensity of the laser, can melt and harden inside the laser bank and eventually short out the projector. DustGuard prevents dust from gathering inside, which can be extremely damaging to laser projectors, and eliminates the use of ineffective dust filters or the labor involved to clean them. The technology includes hermetically sealed laser modules to protect the laser bank. The design has passed the dust chamber test standard for the international dustproof rating of IP5X, a rating given to only the most rigorously tested mobile and smart watch technology available today. It’s all but impervious to water.
“Schools have a lot of material they need to cover in the classroom every day. They can’t afford for a projector to interrupt class time or drive up costs due to bulbs and maintenance labor,” said Carly Burton-Sallay, digital marketing manager at BenQ America Corp. “The installation at Spring ISD illustrates the incredible value of our BlueCore Education Laser Series.”
