BenQ is introducing a variety of new display products at Computex 2005, including a DLP (digital light
processing) projector, a 17-inch LCD monitor, a 72-inch DLP rear-projection TV (RPTV) and LCD TVs with
sizes ranging from 20- to 46-inches.
The 17-inch monitor (FP72V) offers a "family friendly" feature with a light sensor that automatically adjusts
the brightness of the monitor based on the ambient lighting in the room and a timer that automatically
lowers the brightness and contrast after a prescribed period of time. There is also a durable built-in
protective film that helps safeguard the LCD monitor screen from scrapes and scratches.
The product was shown at the 2005 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas and hit the European
market this March. It will be introduced in Taiwan later this month.
BenQ is also highlighting a new projector (the PE8720), which supports 1,280x720p resolution, a 16:9
aspect ratio, a 6,200:1 contrast ratio, a 1,000 ANSI lumens brightness and weighs 9kg. The product will be
available soon in both Taiwan and overseas markets.
For LCD TVs, the company plans to offer a full line-up of LCD TVs from 20- to 46-inch soon. Most of the
new TVs have an 8ms response time, a brightness of 600 nits, contrast ratio of 600:1 and are HDTV (high
Another spotlight at BenQ's booth is no doubt on its new 72-inch DLP RPTV (TR7270). The company
claims the TV is the slimmest DLP RPTV among all available sets globally, as its screen-to-depth ratio is
6:1. The TV is HDTV compatible and has a 1,280x720 resolution. However, the company said it has not
decided about the timeframe for volume production and product launch for the TV.
