Portable projectors are a total fit for the scenario where you don’t need a full-blown, complicated projection system. Whether you’re looking to entertain the kids before bedtime, watch your favorite football matches during an evening BBQ in the garden, or otherwise – here is a gadget you can transport easily between rooms or homes and set up with little hassle.
BenQ GVI Availability & Price
The BenQ GVI is available now, in UAE and is priced starting from AED 1,225 in various eCommerce platforms.
Design & features
Totally intentionally, the GVI looks more like a portable speaker than a projector. The speaker grille elegantly meets the top projection part, separated by a bright yellow band. The actual projector can tilt upwards up to 15 degrees, and the entire unit can also fit onto a standard camera tripod mount.
Benq GVI is palm-sized designed with convenient tilt hinge and auto keystone correction. The device also comes with wire-free connectivity with dual-band Wi-Fi (2.4G/5G) and direct hotspot
On the top you’ve got four buttons – two for adjusting volume, and one button to turn the unit on. There’s also a button that toggles the GVI between being a projector and just a Bluetooth speaker. There’s a manual focus ring to the side too, while the GV1’s auto-keystone ensures that you always have a well-aligned image.
At the back are two ports, one for a power adapter and a USB-C port for connecting a device such as a compatible smartphone or laptop (BenQ includes a USB-C to USB-C cable with the projector). You can also connect a USB-C card reader to project content such as photos or videos off a memory card or USB drive.
That’s pretty much what the BenQ GVI promises to do – just connect your smartphone or laptop to it via cable or wirelessly, and you should be able to enjoy your favorite movies and TV shows.
