BenQ GP20 overview

  • 1Description

The GP20 Ultra-Lite LED Projector from BenQ offers the perfect balance of size and performance. The GP20 projector maintains its portability while offering a higher brightness of 700 ANSI lumens and native WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution, with support for resolutions up to UXGA (1600 x 1200). With features including mirroring for MHL-equipped devices, the GP20 enables easy notebook PC, cable, console gaming, or smart device connection for transferring small-screen content directly to the projector from a portable device. In addition, the GP20 offers simple plug-and-play and wireless streaming to allow users to share HD-quality presentations, movies, videos, photos, and games on a display up to 240 inches. Audio can be played through the unit's two built-in 3W SRS speakers or through external speakers via the audio out port.

The GP20 projector is packed with multimedia connectivity including USB and SD card inputs and a document viewer for Microsoft Office and PDF documents. A plug-and-play USB feature allows for a PC-less experience. Users simply save content to a USB thumb drive, plug the drive into the projector, and project the content without the need for a PC or file conversion. In addition, a USB file transfer function lets users store their multimedia files to the unit's 2GB on-board memory.

Based on high-efficiency 3LED illumination and DLP projection technology, the GP20 projector is designed to produce true-to-life pictures. This allows users to enjoy the ultra-lite projector without worrying about issues such as decreasing brightness or color fading.

EZ QPresenter 2.0 for PC offers wireless connectivity from your PC to the GP20, with the option to extend to a secondary display or project streaming video directly from your PC or NB.

Project PDF, MS Office and iWorks documents on the GP20 directly from your mobile devices. The app also offers instant access to your cloud storage with Dropbox streaming
Plug 'N Play
Now you can share your content from your Android devices on the big screen. GP20 features MHL function and allows you to mirror the movie, games from your Android devices to the big screen. Also, your device is being charged while you're using it
Energy Efficiency with LED Projection Technology
The GP20 utilizes RGB LEDs as the light source to give you incredible, color-rich images with 100,000:1 contrast ratio and 100% NTSC color gamut, making photos and movies much more enjoyable. Under the Eco Mode, the GP20 is able to perform up to 30,000 hours without decrease in brightness
User-Friendly Interface
To ensure a friendly user experience, the GP20 user interface is styled with navigation elements from popular multimedia devices that you are familiar with. There is no need for a user manual when everything is this intuitive
Auto Blank
Auto Blank is an eye protection feature designed to ensure safe use around young children. It enables the GP20 to detect movements within 20 to 30 centimeters in front of the lens and cut off the projection light automatically. Effective distance at 20cm to 30cm; may vary by ambient light levels and the color of reflected objects
Quick Auto Search
With the GP20, there's no need to set the content source manually. Simply plug your devices like an SD card or USB drive into the projector; it can search the content source automatically
Auto Keystone
With the GP20, there's no need to make image adjustments manually. The automatic keystone feature will do all the work for you, turning misshaped images, graphics and charts into a perfect square.
DMD Chip
DLP Technology reflects pure light from millions of micro mirrors. Since the mirrors are colorless and protected within a nearly-sealed engine, BenQ DLP Projectors have no aging problems and are virtually immune to image decay
Filter-Free Engine Design
DLP Technology also affords a filter-free engine design for confidence in image quality and reduced total cost of ownership. BenQ's SmartEco Technology further boosts contrast performance and image quality endurance while saving up to 70% on power consumption
Pixel Circuitry
Enabling a 96% fill factor, DLP Technology supplies pixel circuitry behind the pixel, thereby eliminating the thick dark bezels around individual pixels, which diminish color and detail. A higher fill factor and less black border translate to noticeably purer, more intense color and smoother image quality. They also feature high contrast ratios for flawless rendering of small text, fine lines, and dark scene details. Blacks are deeper and overall image quality is more focused and clean. Your presentations will be easily readable and highly effective, even from the back row of a well-lit venue
Two Built-In SRS-Powered 3W Speakers
They are able to fill the room with Surround Sound intensity
ecoFACTS Label
ecoFACTS declares that the projector supports the effort to replace hazardous substances by improving material selection, packaging design, energy-saving design, and other aspects of the product. Includes arsenic-free optical glass, BFR/PVC-free casing plastics and PVC-free plastic packaging
