No Source Detected Feature

There will be times when a projector is turned on without a display source, such as a classroom PC or notebook. To avoid a projector from running with full lamp power, BenQ created the No Source Detected feature to lower the projector lamp brightness to 30% after the projector has remained unconnected to a display source for more than three minutes.
