BenQ GV30 projector packs modest features and a portable design
BenQ has introduced its new GV30, a portable projector that gives users a solid compromise between features and portability. The model offers, among other things, a 720p resolution and 300 ANSI lumens. Though this might almost meet your home theatre needs, the GV30 makes it easy to require the projector with you for movie nights with friends or watching a movie outside on a dry night.
The BenQ GV30 features a rounded design with a handle for easy carrying and a built-in Bluetooth speaker with ‘extra bass,’ consistent with the corporate. The speaker is often used while watching movies and other content with the projector, plus it are often used as a standalone Bluetooth speaker.
Joining that’s support for up to 720p HD resolution, a 135-degree projection angle, autofocus and vertical keystone, and both HDMI and USB-C connectivity. The model is powered by Android TV and includes support for wirelessly casting content. There are dedicated audio modes for various content: music, movies, games, sports, and television shows.
As for image quality, BenQ says the GV30 features 97% Rec. 709 colour space coverage, BenQ CinematicColor, and ‘optimized picture modes.’ The model doesn’t offer particularly exceptional brightness at only 300 ANSI. Still, BenQ features a solution with each day Time Mode, which it says adjusts the darker image regions to enhance the standard when there’s bright ambient lighting.
Depending on where the projector is placed relative to the screen, users can get image sizes starting from 30-inches to 120-inches, though the perfect range is 80-inches to 100-inches, consistent with the corporate. It’s unclear when the BenQ GV30 will be available within the US, but it’s a launch date of September with a price of €599 for the ECU market.
