From BenQ —   Designed for use in classrooms and conference rooms, the BenQ SW921 5000-Lumen WXGA DLP Projector has a native resolution of 1280 x 800 and a throw ratio ranging from 1.12 to 1.8:1. This long throw ratio makes it a viable option for larger rooms, or any situation where the projector must be set up far from the screen. It features VGA, RCA composite, S-Video, and two HDMI inputs to support most sources. One of the HDMI ports is MHL compatible for direct-wired connectivity and playback from mobile devices.
