BenQ SP831 Description:

Take presentations to a whole new level with the new BenQ SP831 data projectors. Made for any auditorium, colors and details are delivered with crystal-clear smoothness thatll even make video projectors blush. Plus, with its unique technology and brightness to spare at 4,000 stunning ANSI lumens, the WXGA projectors will never leave your audience in the dark.

BenQ SP831 Features:

10-bit color - Instead of using 8-bit technology with only 16 million colors, the SP831 is able to process a full 10 bit of color data to distinguish and display more than 1 billion colors. The pictures are more lifelike and the color precision is better than ever.

Chroma & Luma Transition Enhancement Color video signals such as NTSC, PAL or SECAM types all have luminance (luma) and chrominance (chroma) components. As the chroma signal bandwidth is usually narrower than luma signal bandwidth, color edges changes occur much slower than luma edges changes. In other words, a chroma signal transition occurs fairly slower than a luma signal transition. Consequently, chroma signal edges/transitions usually appear degraded. With Chroma & Luma Transition Enhancement, the SP831 sharpen the chroma signal transitions to give you razor-sharp video signals with no distracting picture blur.

Independent Color Management See colors the way theyre meant to be. Through the power of 6 independent color adjustments, you can precisely fine-tune saturation levels of even a single color in any image.

Noise Reduction Via a temporal noise filter, several frames are evaluated at once. Pixels that give rise to visual noise are then instantly identified and eliminated. Distortion resulting from too much compression is also corrected.

Detail Enhancement Whether youre looking at moving or static images, the HQV Detail Enhancement technology identifies any blurred areas before processing and wiping them away. Contrast is then added automatically to making details stand out clearly.

BrilliantColor True beauty comes from within. The revolutionary BrilliantColor enables higher brightness levels by boosting mid-tone colors guaranteeing your presentations are more vibrant and precisely rendered.

WXGA (1280 x 768) Dont just make a presentation, make an instant impact. With resolution this high, deliver presentations in widescreen with sharper images that not only wow your audience, but also stays true to what you see on your laptop.

4,000 ANSI Lumens - Never worry if you cant always be guaranteed a dark room. The lumens generated by the SP831 is so bright, its more than enough to highlight your presentations.

Split Screen With a simple touch of a button, theres no fumbling around to show two presentation files simultaneously and clearly.

Digital Zoom Want to really go into detail Theres no problem with the digital zoom. You can zoom in real close.

Offline Cooling Simply unplug and pack up after each presentation. The built-in circuit system allows the cooling fan to continue operating even after it is unplugged.

2D Keystone If it isnt possible to align the projector correctly with the screen, dont despair. You can adjust the shape of the projected image to ensure straight lines on all four sides.

100M Signal Shuttle The distance between the projector and computer can be 100 meters apart without pictures deteriorating making sure nothing comes between you and your presentation.

Various Inputs BenQ projectors are designed with you, the user, in mind. Thats why youll find, along with the clever features, multiple connecting devices for maximum compatibility.

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. is UpFront | Online shopping
