If you have been shopping around for a pocket LED projector and have not been able to find a suitable one, you must take a look at some of the Qumi Q2 reviews. Vivitek’s sleek projector can be connected to a wide range of devices like smartphones, netbooks, laptops, tablets, and video and digital cameras for viewing or sharing content. A new addition to the niche Pico projectors market, it comes in handy for an executive delivering a presentation while on the move, for a school or a business, or whenever there is a need to move the projector from one place to another to share content. Moreover, the innovative Qumi is the first pocket projector that is 3D-ready when used in conjunction with the DLP Link system.
Vivitek’s Qumi Q2 features a DLP Pico chipset and BrilliantColor technologies from Texas Instruments, offering a color depth that is much better than that of its competitors. The chipset delivers 1280 à¸· 800 WXGA native resolution, enabling Qumi to produce more than 1 billion colors for sharp and clear 720p lifelike images. The contrast ratio of 2500:1, one among the best in the Pico range, offers bright images and perceivable black and white contrast to ensure excellent color saturation. The LED light, the heart of Qumi, delivers 300 lumens of brightness for 30,000 hours. The 1.4-pound, diminutive projector produces widescreen images measuring up to 90 inches and works well even in rooms with plenty of light.
The 1W built-in speakers are capable of producing rich audio experience in rooms of small to medium size. For connecting other audio outputs such as headphones from your home theater, a 3.5 millimeter audio jack is provided. Though Qumi is not meant to be a replacement for a dedicated home theater projector, it is set up for watching back DivX and AVI files through the USB port or the MicroSD card slot. The Qumi Q2 also supports a wide range of video input types such as SDTV, EDTV, HDTV, NTSC/NTSC 4.43, PAL and SECAM, enabling a wide variety of compatibility options. Mini-HDMI, VGA, and component video inputs are available for connecting various digital devices.
The MicroSD card enables you to expand your options. If you are travelling on business, you can transfer your files to the MicroSD card and access them directly on the Q2 with the help of touch-sensitive button controls. The Qumi Q2 is also well set up for displaying Word, Excel, PowerPoint and pdf files. The projector can be operated using the touch-sensitive controls provided on the top of the unit or a remote control.
