BenQ GP1 Mini LED Projector = Pocket Guerilla Cinema A-Go-Go
BenQ has just dropped details of their brand new hand sized GP1 mini LED projector – this promises to light up the faces of those fans of PowerPoint and guerilla cinema 🙂
It comes with a USB port so you can plug in and play without the needing to hook-up a computer or DVD player and create an image up to 80-inches in size.
The mini marvel will sit in your hand and comes equipped with lamp-free LED technology and weighs in at 640g (1.4Ib).
The GP1 is compatible with mass storage devices such as digital cameras, PDAs, iPods, iPhones, and Smartphones.
It also comes with an integrated 2w speaker and headphone jack so you can enjoy audio from the GP1, “further enriching your audiovisual enjoyment”.
According to BenQ “Compared to the average 55%-80% NTSC of most projectors, the GP1 noticeably outperforms with bolder, more deeply saturated hues across a broader colour gamut. The 15-80-inch image in 4:3 native format (16:9 selectable) is adjustable with digital zoom and preset picture PC and A/V modes.”
Auto play modes, auto keystone, auto search, and Wall Colour Correction settings are controllable and connectivity includes D-Sub, Composite, and USB inputs, and PC audio output.
Files supported include JPEG, GIF, BMP, TIFF for photos, MPEG-1, MJPEG for video and MPEG-1 layer 2, PCM for audio suggesting no DivX or MPEG4 support.
The GP1 does come with ArcSoft MediaConverter software inside the manual CD, which will basically allow you to convert your files to the formats required.
There is even an optional detachable iPod/iPhone docking station.
The GP1 Mini Projector will be available June 2009 in the U.K for Â£499
