SmartEco™ Lamp Saving Technology


featureIncorporating BenQ's renowned SmartEco lamp saving Technology, the MW526A provides great energy savings while continuing to deliver amazing picture quality through this innovative technology.

SmartEco mode is designed to use only the exact amount of lamp power the projector needs to deliver the best contrast and brightness performance. This feature enables the MW526A to deliver incredible projection quality with the added benefit of reduced the total cost of ownership by extending the lamp life and lowering power consumption.

LampSave Mode


Projector lamp replacement costs make up the biggest part of the total cost of projector ownership. The LampSave Mode is designed to dynamically adjust lamp power brightness level to match displayed content to extend projector lamp life by 50%! The lamp replacement frequency is also reduced by up to 50%, effectively reducing replacement and maintenance costs.

No Source Detected Mode

The MW526A automatic switches to Eco Blank Mode after the projector is turned on for over three minutes without an active source being displayed, eliminating unnecessary energy waste and prolonging the life of the projector lamp.


0.5W in Standby Mode

When inactive, the MW526A keeps power consumption to a minimum with 0.5W standby power, achieving what was once a challenge for ealier generation projector models. This technological advancement in energy saving helps extend the projector lamp life and lower energy costs.

featureBlu-ray Full HD 3D Supported

This BenQ MW526A is built with latest DLP® technology to support Full 120Hz 3D functionality for flicker free 3D viewing.

This level of 3D immersion allows schools to bring an unforgetable learning experience to their students with cost efficient active shutter 3D glasses and 3D content from optional brand name Blu-ray Players.

Timeless Image Quality

Colorific™ Technology Delivers Lifelike Color, Year After Year


BenQ usesColorific technology to optimize images for specific color balance effects for diverse applications such as presentations, movies and spreadsheets and photographs.

Every BenQ Colorific projector generates more than one billion colors by combining up to seven different colors to create vibrant, true to life images. You'll also experience dramatic contrasts for remarkable clarity, higher impact, and greater legibility.

BenQ's Colorific projectors are dependable year after year. You can rely on the colors to remain the same from day one to a decade later; without the risk of fading, ghosted images, or yellowing.

DLP Technology also includes a filter-free engine design for carefree confidence in long-lasting image quality and reduced TCO. BenQ’s SmartEco™ Technology further boosts contrast performance and image quality endurance while saving up to 70% on lamp power consumption.

  • Accurate: Over 1,000,000,000 colors vs. 16,700,000 colors from many competing LCD projectors
  • Crisp: Bright, high contrast picture with 3x more contrast than similar ceompeting LCD models
  • Long Lasting: Consistent quality you see the same image now and years from now

Razor-Sharp Clarity with Ultra Readability


Enabling a 96% fill factor, DLP Technology supplies pixel circuitry behind the pixel, thereby eliminating the thick dark bezels around individual pixels, which diminishes color and detail. A higher fill factor and less black border translate into noticeably purer, more intense color and smoother image quality.

BenQ DLP Projectors also feature high contrast ratios for flawless rendering of small text, fine lines, and dark scene details. Blacks are deeper and overall image quality is more focused and clean. Your presentations will be easily readable and highly effective, even from the back row of a well-lit room.

Vibrant, True-to-Life Colors


Even in well-lit venues, BenQ DLP Projectors achieve the optimal balance of brightness and color accuracy. BrilliantColor™ technology additionally boosts true-to-life colors that captivate. BrilliantColor enables up to six-color processing by incorporating the secondary colors Yellow, Cyan, and Magenta along with the primary Red, Blue, and Green colors. From intense hues to elusive mid-tones like aqua blues and light yellows, every presentation is rendered in pure, living splendor.
