TAIPEI, TAIWAN, June 2, 2009 – The modern tech-savvy, digital-media-on-demand consumer has yet another awesome BenQ offering to look forward to: BenQ officially launched today the much-anticipated, PC-less, lamp-free Joybee GP1 Mini Projector. Positioned this past CES as the world’s first pocket projector with lamp-free LED technology and integrated USB video reader, the tiny 640g Joybee is packed with advanced features to effortlessly run every multimedia content consumers can imagine: PC-less projection of movies, photos, console games, and videos amplifies enjoyment and impact of various mass storage devices such as external HDDs, digital cameras, personal multimedia players, PDAs, iPods, iPhones, Smartphones, gaming consoles, and laptops. Effortless and boundless big-screen fun from home to office to anywhere is enhanced by superb picture quality, sound, and convenience: 120% NTSC, 100 ANSI lumens powered by digital LED lighting, Wall Color Correction, built-in 2W speaker, 20,000+ hours light life, iPod/iPhone dock (optional), instant On/Off, and tripod compatibility.
Boasting anytime, anywhere projection with its superb portability and brilliance, the Joybee GP1 is ideal for all users. For families, the Joybee is terrific for toting on vacation, to sleepovers, to family functions, or just around the house – load movies or family photos/video onto a USB thumb drive and enjoy large-screen viewing in the hotel room or any room of the home. It displays bigger than any comparably priced TV and is much more versatile, portable, and easier to use. Kids can add instant wow to sleepovers by connecting to gaming consoles or DVD players. Traveling business professionals can keep corporate videos, jpeg-format presentations, and more on a USB thumb drive for spur-of-the-moment presentations in the lounge, at the coffeehouse, even in the smallest cubicle. For photographers, interior designers, realtors, and others who demand color precision and brilliance, the Joybee’s unrivaled 120% NTSC and 100AL project photos, design renderings, and videos (such as virtual home tours) in high-impact color, even in fully-lit settings. Compared to the average 55%-80% NTSC of most projectors, the Joybee GP1 noticeably outperforms with bolder, more deeply saturated hues across a broader color gamut. The 15-80” image in 4:3 native format (16:9 selectable) is adjustable with digital zoom and preset picture PC and A/V modes. Auto play modes, auto keystone, auto search, and Wall Color Correction get content up and running fast, while the integrated speaker delivers instant digital sound.
Its high-gloss, chic, and palm-sized form also makes the Joybee a natural pairing with other pocket gadgets such as iPods, Smartphones, PDAs, and digital cameras to bring a greater dimension of enjoyment to these everyday devices that would otherwise only display on their tiny screens. Ample connectivity includes D-Sub, Composite, and USB inputs, and PC audio output. A detachable iPod/iPhone docking station is available as a clever option.
Certified RoHS, WEEE, and EuP, the Joybee draws 30% less power than competitor models, has a <1W standby mode, and 20,000+ hours of lamp life for environmental joy.
New BenQ Joybee GP1 Mini Projector is available June in the U.S., followed by Europe and Asia Pacific.
