BenQ Unveils Second-Generation GP2 Projector
BenQ introduced the next generation of its popular mini projector, the BenQ Joybee GP2. Building on the success of its GP1 predecessor, the GP2 Projector features the same elegant black and white housing while adding a number of enhancements including an intuitive user interface, 720p HD-ready video capability, short-throw projection, an integrated iPhone(R)/iPod(R) dock, an optional three-hour battery pack, and a multitude of connectivity options.
Based on high-efficiency 3LED illumination and DLP(R) projection technology, the light and compact 565-gram palm-sized BenQ Joybee GP2 offers unparalleled A/V multimedia on the go. Dedicated iPhone/iPod controls on the GP2 Projector’s included remote control make it easy to play audio through the unit’s built-in 2-W speakers or through external speakers via the Audio Out port.
The BenQ Joybee GP2 is packed with multimedia connectivity including USB and SD card viewers, a document viewer for Microsoft Office and PDF documents, and mini HDMI for tablets and smartphones. A USB display feature allows users to connect their computers to the mini projector using a USB cable — no driver required — while the USB file transfer function lets them transfer their multimedia files to the unit’s 2GB of on-board memory storage.
The BenQ Joybee GP2 is available now at an MSRP of $549 (62,800 Yen in Japan) and will be on display at the 2012 International CES.
