About this item

The BenQ Joybee GP2 Ultra Portable Mini Projector weighs only 1.2 pounds (0.6kg) yet it projects at 200 lumens with a contrast ratio of 2400:1. You can plug your iPhone or iPod into the iPhone/iPod compatible dock to share videos, photos, graphics and games wherever you go. The GP2 also supports many other smartphones, tablets and media players.

The Joybee GP2 comes HD ready to upgrade your viewing experience. Its LED light source never needs replacing because it's expected to last the life of the projector-about 20,000 hours in normal mode, 30,000 in economy mode. The display panel that forms the picture is a Texas Instruments Digital Light Processor Digital Micromirror Device.

The GP2 can also show video signals in PAL and SECAM formats and 720p and 1080p high definition formats. It can accept signals from PCs and Macintosh computers. What's more, you don't even have to bring your computer with you. Just plug 'n transfer your multimedia files to the 2GB internal storage to travel light. If you need a tiny yet versatile projector, the Joybee GP2 might just be the projector you need.
