From BenQ — The MX731 has one VGA and two HDMI inputs to support various types of video sources. One HDMI input is MHL-compatible for mirroring your favorite smart device. Its VGA output allows you to daisy-chain multiple projectors or displays to show the same video source. A built-in 10W speaker eliminates the need for a separate speaker system, but the projector also features a 1/8" audio output to connect external speakers. It is controllable via Ethernet and RS-232 and includes a VGA cable and IR remote control.

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.
