View Entertainment and Documents Without a Computer
Play video or music directly from a USB stick. And when you need to take a quick look at work, the i500 can open office documents from Excel, Word, or PowerPoint without a computer.
Up-Close Short Throw
You can project 80" images from as close as 3.3' from the screen.
Supporting HD broadcasts and streaming content ranging from HD to Full HD, the i500 displays high definition videos with clarity and sharpness.
LED Light Source for Enhanced Visual Brightness
The i500's full-spectrum LED light source triggers the Helmholtz-Kohlrausch effect to increase the perceived brightness, so your movies, shows, and games pack enough visual impact for even moderately lit rooms in the daytime.
Sound That Thrills You
The i500 features dual 5W chambered speakers, designed to be heard without cumbersome external speaker connections. It also doubles as a Bluetooth boombox when it's not projecting. Purpose-calibrated sound modes help optimize i500's audio for whatever suits your mood:
Movie Mode – clarifies human voices while discerning subtleties such as footsteps and soft sound effects.
Game Mode – reduces unnecessary low-frequency resonance, articulating mids and highs to match intricate gameplay.
Music Mode – expands the sound stage for gratifying musicality.
Vertical keystone correction is included to help eliminate the trapezoid effect when the projector is placed at an indirect angle to the projection surface. Whether you put it on a coffee table or a bedroom ottoman, you'll get properly proportioned images and straight edges without distortion.
You already know how to use the i500, because its controls and interface are designed with the same elements used on today's popular portable smart devices. A remote controls everything you need, plus it works with the mouse and keyboard exactly as you would expect.
The i500 keeps up to date with the latest software and streaming apps via OTA (Over-the-Air) live updates. You won't miss the latest versions of apps, display drivers, and firmware.
