BenQ Launches New Wireless Micro-Portable Digital Projector
Ideal for Mobile Professionals and Small Businesses, CP120 Weighs 2.9 Pounds and Offers Flexible Wireless Connectivity via IEEE802.11a/b/g Standards
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (September 9, 2005) — BenQ, a leading manufacturer of digital lifestyle devices, today announced the CP120 micro-portable digital projector, the newest addition to the company’s line of high-performance, award-winning wireless digital projectors. Ideal for small businesses and mobile professionals, the CP120 weighs only 2.9 pounds and offers flexible wireless connectivity with compatibility for the three most common variations of the IEEE802.11 wireless standard (i.e., 802.11a/b/g).
The CP120 provides a solid feature set that includes XGA native resolution, an ANSI brightness rating of 1500 lumens and a 2000:1 contrast ratio. In addition, the CP120 features BenQ’s proprietary Golden Ratio Color Wheel that provides high-grade color reproduction. For example, using the Golden Ratio Color Wheel, the CP120 produces more natural flesh tones by delivering better color saturation on red and blue than standard RGB without sacrificing green.
BenQ’s CP120 features a password function for enhanced security purposes and has a cooling-off time of 30-seconds. Travelers can easily take advantage of the high altitude mode, no-hassle sliding lens door, spring adjusting foot, and position hole fit for a tripod, which makes the projector not only easy to use, but also easy to transport.
Professional graphic designers will benefit from the sRGB color reproduction. In addition, some of the optical technology behind the CP120 was developed by leading developer Carl Zeiss Optical System Design.
The projector is compatible with several video system input/output configurations, including NTSC, PAL, SECAM, EDTV and HDTV (1080i, 720p, 576p, 576i, 480p and RGBHV).
