Pocket-sized pro­jec­tor pretty handy

Winnipeg Free Press - SundayXtra - - LIFE / TECH -

VIVITEK de­scribes its Qumi Q5 LED pocket pro­jec­tor as be­ing made for work, travel or play. And the com­pany says it’s the first pocket pro­jec­tor that’s 3D-ready via DLP Link.

Given all the places you can use it, com­pat­i­bil­ity is the real plus. It projects dig­i­tal con­tent stored in just about any de­vice, in­clud­ing smart­phones, tablets, lap­top and desk­top com­put­ers, or di­rectly from video or still dig­i­tal cam­eras.

Now that you know what it can do, us­ing it is as sim­ple as turn­ing it on.

The DLP lamp-free pro­jec­tor is built to last more than 10,000 hours with­out a loss of light and more than 30,000 hours over­all, and has an out­put up to 500 lu­mens. I didn’t put that many hours into it, but when I do, I’ll let you know the sta­tus.

Con­nect it to your de­vice and play away. It can be pro­jected onto a con­fer­ence­room wall for a pre­sen­ta­tion or against an out­side wall for a movie night.

The pro­jec­tor has an in­ter­nal two-watt mono speaker, a max­i­mum res­o­lu­tion of 1600 x 1200 and a fixed (non-zoom­ing) lens.

It can fit in your pocket, but don’t sit on it.

The de­vice is also avail­able is the Q7 (US$799) ver­sion, with 800 lu­mens, and the Q7 plus (US$806), with 1,000 lu­mens.

DE­TAILS: US$440; avail­able in red, yel­low, blue, black and white; vivitekusa.com.
