The big screen experience and the thrills and excitement that come with it is set to become accessible to even more people thanks to Vivitek, a leading brand of visual display products. It has expanded its popular Qumi Series of industry leading pocket projectors with the introduction of the Qumi Q3 Plus, an ultra-portable LED smart projector with Android™ designed to provide entertainment on the go.
Redefining how and where the big screen experience can be enjoyed and shared, the Qumi Q3 Plus joins Vivitek’s existing Qumi projectors – including the Qumi Q6 and the Qumi Q7 Plus – which also offer Wi-Fi connectivity and PC-free access to multimedia content.
Despite being only slightly bigger than a smartphone in size and weighing just 460 grams, the Qumi Q3 Plus can project a large widescreen image up to a massive 100” diagonal size. This performance is aided by the ultra-portable projector’ native HD720p resolution, 500 lumen brightness and 5,000:1 contrast, along with its 30,000 hours LED light-source lifetime and a 1.5GHz quad-core CPU running the Android v.4.42 OS. Combined, these ensure that the Qumi Q3 Plus packs a visual punch wherever it is used. It’s an experience set to last too, thanks to its built-in 8,000mAh rechargeable battery which delivers up to two hours on the go projection.
In addition to its ample battery life, the pocket projector gives users a multitude of content sources for playing back video, photos, documents and other content from a PC-free reader via a USB drive, microSD cards or even from its considerable onboard memory. Boosting its flexibility further, is the Qumi Q3 Plus’ built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, which gives users more choice over where the projector is situated and makes it the perfect pocket projector for those who travel a lot.
By providing cable-free projection of content from iOS ® or Android™ mobile phones and tablets, the Wi-Fi functionality enables users to connect to a web browser. Easy access to preloaded online streaming content provider apps enables users to watch movies or TV programs via services like Netflix™ and Youtube™, without having to use a mobile phone.
In addition to its versatility, the Qumi Q3 Plus is quick to set up, ensuring users will be projecting in seconds while its Home Screen makes navigating it simple and easy. All the most common functions are centrally placed on the home screen for immediate access to the required feature, application or setting, while its hand-held sized remote brings further convenience to digitally focus the image. The automatic vertical keystone correction enables a nice widescreen image from many angles, while it also has a motorised focus that can be adjusted by remote control.
With its clean, minimalist-yet-functional design, the Qumi Q3 Plus’ sliding lens cover, curved edges and neatly integrated speakers enhance the audio experience. Available in four colours ranging from white, black, red, gold, it is stylish enough for any setting, whether the user wants wireless and instant projection at home, is enjoying outdoor activities like camping, or even during a break at work. To amplify its audio performance, the Q3 Plus offers Bluetooth connectivity enabling sound to be transmitted from the projector to a compatible headphone or an external speaker for increased volume.
Commenting on the Qumi Q3 Plus’ introduction, Holger Graeff, General Manager EMEA, Vivitek, said: “This projector encapsulates Vivitek’s commitment to engineering excellence which is reflected in its innovation, performance and flexibility. It also shows our enthusiasm for giving our customers solutions that deliver the image quality and performance associated with Vivitek, irrespective of the size of the projector or where it is used.”
