In the early years, BenQ has unveiled the first-born of its range of mini projector. This is the Benq GP1. What are its characteristics. Firstly, it is worth remembering what a mini projector. You'll be able to judge more easily its technical specifications and attributes. A mini projector has dimensions smaller than a normal projector. However, it is larger than pocket projector. The Pocket Projector is a miniature projector (it is possible to incorporate it into a PDA or mobile phone). A mini projector fits in your hand.

The Benq GP1 operates on the basis of technology DLP (Texas Instrument). The DLP is a technology that allows for less loss of light and more contrast. It has excellent brightness. It is ten times that of conventional projector. It has a higher contrast than the average. Resolution SVGA (800x600) will receive a diagonal of 2 meters. Weighing 500 grams, it is not a highly mobile even if its size (13.6 cm x 5.4 cm x 12 cm) allow it to fit easily in the hand. The Benq GP1 should be accompanied by a dock to receive IPOD AND IPHONE.
Mini video projector BenQ GP1 uses technology DLP developed by Texas Instruments and offers a brightness of 100 lumens , 10 times more than conventional pocket projector.

Its contrast is also higher than in general pocket projector with 2000:1. The diagonal proposed by the resolution SVGA 800 x 600 is 2 meters. In comparison, a pocket projector has a diagonal of just 1.27 meters maximum for optimum quality. This is related to the lower brightness of the bulb. It weighs 600 grams handicaps a minimum level of mobility. But its size it is quite reasonable for use in the palm of the hand with 13.6 cm x 5.4 cm x 12 cm.

In terms of connectivity, you will be served by an output Composite , a USB and the traditional VGA . The BenQ GP1 should be provided with a docking station for Ipod, Iphone. The GP 1 is as small as a CD case, but so great in his features like a true professional-Beamer. But not so fast. The little projector is the first of April 2009 the U.S. for a price of 600 dollars. Thanks to the automatic keystone correction image will always have ideal proportions. First, instead of conventional lamps in the projector using environmentally friendly LEDs.

Re: BenQ GP1 Mini Projector

Connection side of the projector VGA, component and composite video has to offer. The audio signal passes through a 3.5 mm jack for projectors and is output through a loudspeaker. It also has an integrated USB interface, which can be fed without the GP1 laptop with video or image signals. When the power consumption during operation BenQ speaks of less than 90 watts in standby mode to the power consumption below one watt. In spontaneous presentations GP1 will make a good figure, because it is compact, light and attractively decorated.

Offering the possibility of projection anywhere, anytime, portable and great brightness, GP1 is ideal for all users. For families, the GP1 is perfect for use at home or on vacation, in fact, its functions allow you to project movies, photos or films contained in a USB stick and enjoy the big screen in a hotel room or any room the house. At constant prices compared to a TV, the new BenQ has a screen bigger and better and is more versatile, portable and easy to use.

Easy Connect :

Children can have fun with friends, instantly and easily connect with their game consoles or DVD players. Business professionals will be able to manage the videos and presentations in jpeg format on a USB key for any last-minute presentations in a conference room, coffee or in the smallest space. For photographers, interior designers, graphic designers and other imaging professionals who require accurate color and brightness, GP1 is virtually unparalleled quality thanks to 120% NTSC and 100AL of its "Photo", design and rendering video color great impact even in fully lit.

Compared to the average of 55% -80% in most projectors NTSC, GP1 is noticeably superior image quality thanks to the deepest shade of a wider range of colors. The image format of 4:3 basis (16:9 selectable) is adjustable with digital zoom and preset picture mode PC and A / V The automatic mode projection research and Wall Color Correction makes it fast and guessed each function, while the built-in speaker provides excellent sound quality digital.


Projector BenQ GP1 not only affects its multimedia capabilities, and attractive appearance. A prisoner in a compact enclosure made of white plastic with a glossy black lid, mini-projector GP1 weighs 640 Soft lighting control module and the touch keys is extremely easy to work with a projector. For added convenience, the projector can be mounted on a tripod and ideally adjust the height and angle of projection.

Its unique shape and elegant handheld, causes the GP1 is an indispensable accessory pocket for other items such as i-Pod, Smartphones, PDAs and digital cameras, offering a screen size of these devices increased to otherwise restricted by the smallness of their screens. Extensive connectivity includes USB ports, D-Sub, Composite and audio outputs to your PC. Supplement is also available as a docking station i-Pod/i-Phone sold separately.

However, the BenQ GP1 has two features that make it stand out from other portable projectors, but will not save anyone's life, if they can make life easier for imaginary executives on the move. I mean the ability to play video, audio and images directly from a USB memory and the ability to connect an iPod dock. The first function would, at worst, without a computer to give a talk, while back to the roadside motel that houses the protagonist of this movie that I've ridden, projected against the wall the last chapter of your favorite series from either his trusty laptop or iPhone (iPod if you have blackberry-diction).

Power Consumption :

Certified RoHS, WEEE and EuP the GP1 is consuming 30% less energy than competitive models thanks to a standby mode of less than 1W and autonomy of more than 20,000 hours of illumination for fun in complete compliance with echo-environmental. Logically thinking, the other features of this DLP projector is not no big deal, telling the BenQ GP1 with a lamp capable of generating 100 ANSI lumens and a contrast static so bad that even its manufacturer dares to mention it. The same happens with the screen resolution to be 10 to 80 inches that is capable of generating. Finally, just be missing GP1 mention that the BenQ has no digital video inputs, with the pin VGA component video and the only present in your patch panel.

It incorporates a lamp which, among other things, is capable of generating 100 ANSI lumens and a resolution is between 10 and 80 inches. If you will excuse the redundancy, is also capable of playing files of audio , video and images, and you can connect an iPod with its integrated dock. Turn has USB connection and VGA, but emphasize the negative characteristic, it has no digital video input.

Conclusion :

The GP1 is making sufficient darkened rooms a very respectable picture. The colors have a strong life. The picture is sharp despite the small resolution. He has a ring on the lens for the correction and sharpening a focus adjusting the zoom. or home theater use, this device is unfortunately too faint (100Ansi) and the screen size for my taste a little too small.

In summary, mini video projector, projector is smaller than a traditional but larger than a Pocket projector but this is a summary because there are now four types of projectors to small. I will let you visit different categories mini video projector, pocket projectors and video projectors to familiarize yourself with classic names of these new products and buy your dream tomorrow. The movie playback, although trimmed to SD resolution and not too bright, but convincing color and brightness ratios of the composition completely. This motion representation is excellent.

BenQ's portable projector shows quite impressive, what is technologically possible. True to convince us, the concept could not yet, especially with regard to the film presentation. The videos, which accepts the GP1 are played in good image quality, even with sound. The built-in 2-watt system delivers Hi-Fi, of course, not quality, the dialogue we can understand and correct the volume. The presentation quality is generally good, colors and contrasts of the tiny is properly again, and certainly does not count an application such as home theater to its core competencies.

Very fashionable are putting micro projectors like the one we bring you today, the BenQ GP1. These are teams that have been designed for mobile workers who need to have a projector at any time without having to carry a product that is heavy or occupy too much space.
