The Dandenong Ranges OC projector is available for other clubs to borrow for meetings or training nights. It is a high quality data projector capable of displaying reasonable quality video. The BENQ MP721 has a native resolution of 1024*768 (4:3 format) but will also display in 16:9 and up to 1280*1024. It is not HD quality but does (now) have a HDMI input. It comes with a short power cable and two short (1m) cables for connection to a PC or laptop (either VGA or HDMI). The projector can also be used to display results screens from the OV SI system laptops if 240v power is available and light conditions permit. Additional and/or longer length connecting cables are available for loan (from Ian Dodd's personal collection) upon request. Like all projectors it must not be switched off at the mains power until it has cooled down, beeped and turned its internal fan off.
To book the projector or for advice on operation, please contact Ian Dodd on 0419 316 8430419 316 843 or email

OVic magazine has now ceased publication. Thanks to the many editors who produced the magazine since its inception in the 1970s. The role of the magazine has now largely been taken over by electronic communications with members. The Australian Orienteer magazine continues to be published with quality articles on all aspects of Australian orienteering.
