This new projector replaces the very successful MP510 and claims to have a better overall performance and increased brightness, the company says.

Managing Director of BenQ Australia, Phil Newton said, “Once again we are breaking new ground with the MP511, its astonishing to imagine the average person can afford an image up to 300-inches with this level of brightness in a DLP projector, we really have made projectors attainable to the masses. This truly is a unique beast and we are thrilled to be able to crack the $1,000 barrier with such a well equipped product.”

BenQ claims that its MP511 offers 2000:1 contrast ratio, native SVGA resolution, and numerous inputs including Analog RGB, Component Video, S-Video and Composite Video. The MP511 also features “Brilliant Colour” a unique picture enhancement technology that vastly improves the overall picture performance, “Wall Colour Correction” a clever bit of processing that enables the user to adjust the image colour depending on the colour of the wall that’s being projected, and a 3D colour management which allows independent colour adjustment. The MP511 also includes 11 preset application modes, presentation timer and panel keylock for security.

RRP: $999
