Company to Donate $10 to Breast Cancer Research for Every Colorific HT1075 Projector Sold in October

COSTA MESA, Calif. — Oct. 20, 2014 — BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions and the No. 1-selling DLP(R) projector brand in The Americas(1), today launched its latest “BenQ Cares” campaign. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the company will donate $10 for each award-winning HT1075 Colorific(TM) home theater projector sold in October. Created earlier this year, the BenQ Cares outreach program seeks to promote the company’s social responsibility by supporting charitable causes and reinvesting in communities such as education and the arts.

“Pairing our latest BenQ Cares initiative with our new HT1075 projector is a great way to increase awareness and contributions for breast cancer research across the country,” said Lars Yoder, President at BenQ America Corp. “By partnering with our customers, we believe we can make a real difference in order to both educate the general public and support the dedicated professionals that help in fighting this disease.”

Ideal for watching live sports, TV content, or movies, BenQ’s all-new HT1075 Colorific projector provides FHD definition, 2,200 ANSI lumens, and a 10,000:1 contrast ratio to bring big-screen experiences to any living room or home theater space. Featuring an extremely simple setup process, the device is equipped with dual HDMI connectivity, an optional wireless Full HD kit, in addition to its vertical lens shift feature and horizontal and vertical keystone correction that lets users calibrate the projector from anywhere in the room at the push of a button.

For even easier connectivity, the HT1075 provides mobile high-definition link (MHL) technology, allowing users to access wireless cloud content and streaming directly from notebook PCs, cable boxes, gaming consoles, or smart devices. As a result, small-screen content can be transferred directly to the projector from any portable device — enabling incredibly easy media transfers. Completing the projector’s comprehensive features is a built-in 10-watt chamber speaker, which fills any room with rich audio.

Customers can also win a $100 VISA gift card simply by visiting the HT1075 website at http://info.benq.us/htseries before Nov. 14.
