Power Saving, Eco Friendly
World-Leading SmartEco Technology for a Greener Environment
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. Built with this brand new invention, the MU686 brings together uncompromised brightness, exquisite picture quality and optimized lamp life through innovative features.
The SmartEco Mode cleverly adjusts the lamp power to maximize power saving by delivering the best contrast and brightness performance using only as much light as needed.
260W Projector Power Consumption by Average
Enhanced Details in Darkened Scenes 210W Projector Power Consumption by Average
If the projector is detected to be without a display source for over three minutes, the system will automatically switch to Eco blank Mode, eliminating unnecessary energy waste and prolonging the life of the projector lamp.
Auto Power Off
If the projector is found to be without a display source, the system will automatically turn off the projector, eliminating unnecessary energy waste and prolonging the life of the projector lamp.
0.5W in Standby Mode
When inactive, the MU686 keeps power consumption to a minimum (<0.5W standby power), achieving what was once a challenge for earlier projector models. This technological advancement in energy saving helps lower energy costs.
