EINDHOVEN, THE NETHERLANDS, 6 December 2018 – BenQ, the global No.1 DLP projector brand, presents today the GV1 portable LED projector, a brand-new way for digital lifestyle trendsetters to cut the cord and enjoy big-picture entertainment in any setting. Compact and lightweight, the battery-operated GV1 streams movies, social media, videos, and music via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or USB-C™ without setup hassles or connectivity concerns.
“The GV1 is an entertainment powerhouse packed into the size of a large cup of coffee,” said Steve Chu, President of BenQ Europe. “Without cables or even Wi-Fi, it instantly streams supersized audio-visual content anywhere, opening a new world of multi-entertainment possibilities for diverse lifestyles.”
The GV1’s portability and instant readiness uncover unlimited new ways for users to watch large-scale entertainment in a wide range of situations like while cooking for the family, gathered with friends, collaborating at work, or even during workouts.
A convenient adjustment hinge allows 15˚ of tilt range for the GV1’s high-mounted projection lens, enabling 77cm of vertical image offset for the maximum 100” projected image (recommended size 60”) to be placed at a comfortable viewing height. Together with automatic keystone correction, the GV1 produces beautifully optimized picture quality without any setup difficulties.
The GV1 ensures uninterrupted entertainment via dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as direct hotspot wireless streaming capability when Wi-Fi is not available. In addition, the GV1 includes a single USB-C™ port which is able to transfer media via DisplayPort over USB (with DisplayPort Alternate Mode), and read and play media files directly from USB-C™ flash drives.
Equipped with a 5-watt chambered speaker, the GV1 doubles as a portable Bluetooth speaker at the touch of a button. Its 3-hour battery life is ideal for get-togethers, full-length family movie nights, and instant-on entertainment without any cords whatsoever.
Powered by ultimately durable Digital Light Processing, the 2015 Academy Award of Merit Oscar® winning technology used in 90% of the world’s digital cinemas, the GV1 delivers long-lasting DLP picture quality with precise colors and razor-sharp clarity coupled with a 30,000 hours maintenance-free LED light source.
