Vivitek Qumi Q3 pocket projector released

vivitek_q3_plus_color_comboVivitek has just announced an addition to its popular Qumi Series of industry leading pocket projectors with the introduction of the Qumi Q3 Plus.

The Vivitek Qumi Q3 Plus is an ultra-portable LED smart projector. It is powered by Android and is designed to provide entertainment on the go.

Redefining how and where the big screen experience can be enjoyed and shared, the Qumi Q3 Plus joins Vivitek’s existing Qumi projectors – including the Qumi Q6 and the Qumi Q7 Plus – which also offer Wi-Fi connectivity and PC-free access to multimedia content.

Pocket-friendly and potent

The Qumi Q3 might only be slightly bigger than a smartphone and weigh just 460 grams, but it is able to project a large widescreen image up to a massive 100-inches diagonal size.

The pocket powerhouse packs native HD720p resolution, 500 lumen brightness and 5,000:1 contrast. The LED light-source is good for 30,000 hours before needing a refresh.

Under the hood of the Q3 projector you’ll find a 1.5GHz quad-core CPU running the Android v.4.42.

Wireless and versatile

This pocket projector will play nice with a multitude of content sources – playing back video, photos, documents and other content from a PC-free reader via a USB drive, microSD cards or even from its 64GB onboard memory.

The Q3 Plus even has built-in Wi-Fi connectivity. This gives you the freedom to put the projector where you want it. It’s also handy for those looking to use it on their travels.

If you need more sound than the integral 2 watt stereo speakers can give, the Q3 Plus offers Bluetooth connectivity. This means that, not only can you use headphones, but it can transmit from the projector to a compatible external speaker for increased volume.

Looking good

I have to say, I really like how the Qumi Q3 Plus looks.

It has a minimalist-yet-functional design. The Qumi Q3 Plus’ sliding lens cover, curved edges and neatly integrated speakers sits somewhere between business-like and understated elegance.

vivitek_q3_plus_kickstandCommenting on the Q3 Plus’ introduction, Holger Graeff, General Manager EMEA, Vivitek, said:

This projector encapsulates Vivitek’s commitment to engineering excellence which is reflected in its innovation, performance and flexibility. It also shows our enthusiasm for giving our customers solutions that deliver the image quality and performance associated with Vivitek, irrespective of the size of the projector or where it is used.”

I am really looking forward to reviewing the Q3 Plus so stay tuned!
