Pocket-sized projector pretty handy
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.
