The best value choice for small-medium space
Featuring a brightness of 2700 ANSI lumens, a high contrast ratio of 13000:1 and a SVGA resolution, the cost-effective and eco-friendly MS517F offers a stunning full-screen presentation with the finest details regardless of the ambient light level.
World-Leading SmartEco Technology for a Greener Environment
As the first DLP brand to incorporate Philips' ImageCare technology into its projector lamp system, BenQ has taken a further leap, developing its own SmartEco Technology to perfect what DLP can do for energy saving in the 21st century classroom. Built with this brand new invention, the MS517F brings together uncompromised brightness, exquisite picture quality and optimized lamp life through innovative features.
Eco Blank Mode
The Eco Blank mode allows teachers to blank the projection screen whenever they need to direct their students' focus back on them – or simply when the projector is not in use. When activated, this special feature dims the lamp power automatically, lowering the total power consumption by up to 70%.

0.5W in Standby Mode
When inactive, the MS517F keeps power consumption to a minimum with 0.5W standby power, achieving what was once a challenge for ealier projector models. This technological advancement in energy saving certainly helps extend the projector lamp life and lower energy costs.
Supports 3D format
Designed to maximize your audiovisual enjoyment, the MS517F brings to you unlimited 3D entertainment. The 3D formats supported are 3D field-sequential, 3D frame-packing, 3D top-and-bottom and 3D side-by-side.
Display subtitles in video content without the need for an external closed-captioning device with the MS517F. It's perfect for viewing in educational settings such as language classes where a transcript of onscreen dialog is desirable.
User-Friendly I/O Port Design
To enable easy access for everyone, the I/O ports are clearly printed on the projector housing so users can find the port they need straight away. No squinting your eyes or bending over for a closer look.
The Instant Restart feature gives teachers a 90-second window period to turn the projector back on immediately when it has been switched off by accident – no waiting necessary.
Cooling time itself has been reduced by over 60%, saving your time and minimizing the risk of heat damage to sensitive internal components.
To make your teaching job easier, BenQ has added the teaching template function to the MS517F. Now, with four different line pattern designs to choose from – Letter Formation, Musical Staff, Worksheet and Coordinate Chart, you can easily write or draw on whiteboards as well as blackboards without the need of drawing lines or charts.
BenQ DLP® Projectors︱ Long-Lasting Image Perfection with DLP Technology
Timeless Image Quality:
BenQ DLP Projectors are built with enduring enjoyment in mind, ensuring razor-sharp clarity, ultra-readability and true-to-life color for years to come. We use leading-edge DLP Technology to reflect pure light from millions of micro mirrors on a DMD chip through our advanced color wheels. Since the mirrors are colorless and protected within a nearly-sealed engine, BenQ DLP Projectors have no aging problems and are virtually immune to image decay, consistently delivering picture excellence time and time again. In fact, after 2,000 hours of intense usage, inserting a new bulb produces image quality comparable to a brand-new projector.
DLP Technology also affords a filter-free engine design for carefree confidence in long-lasting image quality and reduced total cost of ownership. BenQ’s SmartEco™ Technology further boosts contrast performance and image quality endurance while saving up to 70% on lamp power consumption.
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 diminish color and detail. A higher fill factor and less black border translate to 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 venue.
Vibrant, True-to-Life Colors:
Even in lit venues, BenQ DLP Projectors achieve the optimal balance of brightness and color accuracy, with BrilliantColor™ Technology additionally boosting true-to-life colors that captivate. BrilliantColor enables up to six-color processing by incorporating the secondary colors Yellow, Cyan, and Magenta along with primary Red, Blue, and Green. From intense hues to elusive mid-tones like aqua blues and light yellows, your every presentation is rendered in pure, living splendor.
