BenQ outs the world’s first Smart LED Mini Projector

With 2.1 CH Speakers and 135-degree projection angle with in-built Android TV

BenQ has officially unveiled the world’s first Smart LED Mini Projector, the GV30, boasting features more than a usual projector can have.

The GV30 is one of the first portable LED mini projectors to feature a 2.1-channel audio system with separate high and mid-range drivers, as well as a dedicated woofer. Tuned by BenQ’s treVolo audio team, the system has acoustic and psychoacoustic sciences to balance cinematic sound properties and enhance depth, clarity, definition, presence, and stereo field imaging. It comes with Cinema, Game, Sports, and Music Modes, and also works as a battery-powered, portable Bluetooth speaker.

The device can automatically correct image focus even when projecting from oblique angles. Users can tweak projection angles up to 135 degrees thanks to its rotating magnetic base. Tap to autofocus and auto vertical keystone functions are also available.

BenQ’s CinematicColor feature offers a color performance that can reach up to 98% coverage of the Rec.709 color gamut. With 720p native resolution and 300 ANSI lumens brightness, the projector provides clear images and contrast. It also offers 6 professionally tuned picture modes.

The GV30 also has a built-in Android TV operating system with access to Google Play and live streaming apps for movies, shows, sports, and games, and social media. It also supports wireless casting from iOS and Android devices as well as laptops.
