BenQ MP512 Projector

SVGA Portable Projector
Calculate Throw Distance

From BenQ —   The projector is perfect for business presentations and use in the classroom. With 2200 lumens of brightness and a high contrast ratio of 2500:1, the MP512 projector offers great image quality regardless of the light levels in the room. Noise and vibration are eliminated from the design via extra dampers. At a 26dB noise level, you'll hardly know it's there. And at just under 5 lbs, you'll hardly know it's in your bag. For a projector that can perform to high standards regardless of the application or venue, the MP512 is the right choice.

  • 2200 ANSI Lumens Brightness
  • Multiple Mounting Options
  • Contrast Ratio: 2500:1
  • 4.9 lbs (2.2kg)

We've re-designed our color wheel for maximum absorption of noise and vibrations. We've also added a damper fixed between the MP512's color wheel and bracket for added reduction in noise and vibration.

ANSI LUMENS  is the most commonly accepted industry standard brightness measurement. The ANSI lumen rating measures the brightest white that a projector can produce by averaging nine light meter measurements taken across the projected image.
