The MP780 ST DLP Projector from BenQ is an attractively priced projector that's as useful in the living room as it is in the conference or the classroom. At 2500 ANSI lumens backed with a crisp 3000:1 contrast ratio, the projector is up to the challenge of displaying sharp 720p/1080i/1080p images even in high ambient light installations.


With multi-voltage, multi-color system compatibility, the MP780 ST is a global player. It's also ready for the world of 3D. With DLP Link technology by Texas Instruments the MP780 ST can project 3D images with active shutter glasses (purchased separately).

The MP780 ST easily switches from 3D to 2D (standard) to handle various business presentation materials. The BenQ PointDraw projection system is unlike any existing projection systems. It offers interactive capabilities as an interactive whiteboard plus a projector system. Compatible with any computer operating system that supports a standard USB mouse, this innovative projection system requires no calibration between the projector and the projection screen.

The projector's extensive connectivity includes PC and video inputs as well as a variable audio output for external speakers. Control connectors include USB (type A), RS-232 Serial Port and a LAN port for network connection, maintenance updates and security.

PC-Less Presentation
PC-less teaching is another great way to make a teacher's job easier. The MP780 ST supports PC-less teaching in two ways - USB flash drive and remote desktop. Teachers can either teach from their presentation files by saving them onto their USB flash drives or remotely by accessing their computer using a wireless mouse and keyboard via LAN connection. Since there won't be the need to station a PC in every classroom, schools also get to save a fortune on PC maintenance and repair

Campus-Wide Installation and Monitoring Support
BenQ helps you to keep a close eye on every projector on campus - allowing IT personnel in your school to administer facility-wide maintenance and control from the comfort of their workstation at no extra cost.

What exactly is an Extended Service Plan?
An extended service plan is generally an extension of your original manufacturer's warranty. Most manufacturers warranty their products to be free from defects for up to one year from the date of purchase. This warranty virtually guarantees you that if your newly purchased product fails, the manufacturer will protect you from the high costs of replacement parts and labor necessary to repair your product. Extended service plans lengthen your product's coverage for up to an additional 60 months (5 years) to insure you get years of performance satisfaction from your newly purchased product.

How is this different than the manufacturer's warranty?
A manufacturer's warranty usually offers limited coverage for a limited time, with parts and labor carrying separate lengths of coverage. For example, a common manufacturer warranty of a product might cover a consumer for one full year on parts defects but only 90 days on the high cost of labor involved to change those parts. Extended service plans provide comprehensive, long term, even length coverage. This means that should your product fail within your plans coverage time frame, both parts and labor costs are covered.

How do I buy an Extended Service Plan?
Extended Service Plans can be purchased along with your product online, or via our toll free number.

Can I renew my Consumer Priority Service extended service plan?
Yes, service plans are renewable and must be submitted 30 days prior to the original plans expiration. Please contact a sales representative to discuss your renewal options.

What should I do if I need extended service?
Our extended service providers offer an easy to use interactive form online which you may use to request that they initiate a claim on your product. Your other alternative is to call the toll-free number on your extended warranty card or email and have a qualified representative make this request for you with the information you will provide. We believe that our claim initiation request process is the absolute best our industry has to offer. It is designed for simplicity and speed.

Who will perform the service on my product?
Our company works with over 11,000 authorized service professionals. Each technician is extensively trained by the respective manufacturers to provide service on your products. Authorized technicians must complete annual and bi-annual continued education exams in addition to being well versed in manufacturer supplied update bulletins to ensure their level of expertise is as current as the new products which come to market. We urge our customers to provide feedback regarding their experiences which we later use to insure that the level of service we are expected to provide is exactly the level of service you receive.

May I transfer my extended service plan to another person?
Our service plans are 100% transferable. If you would like transfer ownership of the covered product along with its coverage, we require that the request be supplied in writing. For assistance please contact a Representative. Please have all of the new owner's information at hand when requesting a transfer.

Will I have to pay a deductible or any other "hidden costs"?
Generally, the amount of a deductible is almost always proportional to the amount of the premium charged. In order to have a lower deductible, even as low as $0, the plan holder would generally have to agree to a higher premium. For those who want lower premiums, they must agree to a higher deductible. Our extended service plans carry a $0.00 deductible along with low premiums. This means that with an extended service plan there are no high upfront costs and they are committed to cover 100% parts and labor costs on any authorized claim.
