BenQ Unveils Second-Generation GP2 Projector

Palm-Sized HD LED Projector Features Integrated iPhone(R)/iPod(R) Dock, Optional Battery Pack, and Multiple Connectivity Options for Mobile Presentations and Entertainment

IRVINE, Calif. — Dec. 1, 2011 — BenQ America Corp. today introduced the next generation of its popular mini projector, the BenQ Joybee GP2. Building on the success of its GP1 predecessor, the GP2 Projector features the same elegant black and white housing while adding a number of enhancements including an intuitive user interface, 720p HD-ready video capability, short-throw projection, an integrated iPhone(R)/iPod(R) dock, an optional three-hour battery pack, and a multitude of connectivity options.

Based on high-efficiency 3LED illumination and DLP(R) projection technology, the light and compact 565-gram palm-sized BenQ Joybee GP2 offers unparalleled A/V multimedia on the go. With the projector’s simple plug-and-play operation and 200 ANSI lumen brightness, users can share HD-quality presentations, videos, photos, and games on a brilliant 160-inch cinematic display. Dedicated iPhone/iPod controls on the GP2 Projector’s included remote control make it easy to play audio through the unit’s built-in 2-W speakers or through external speakers via the Audio Out port. Built to travel, the GP2 Projector comes with a new carrying case that features a dedicated pocket for the power adaptor.

The BenQ Joybee GP2 is packed with multimedia connectivity including USB and SD card viewers, a document viewer for Microsoft(R) Office and PDF documents, and mini HDMI for tablets and smartphones. A USB display feature allows users to connect their computers to the mini projector using a USB cable — no driver required — while the USB file transfer function lets them transfer their multimedia files to the unit’s 2GB of on-board memory storage.

The highly efficient GP2 Projector is designed to produce exceptional picture quality, providing users with clearer, brighter, and more vivid images without relying on traditional projection lamps. This allows users to enjoy the mini projector without worrying about issues such as decreasing brightness, color fading, or the expense of lamp replacement.

“By incorporating features and benefits that mobile consumers value, the BenQ Joybee GP2 creates a unique combination of performance and flexibility,” said Lars Yoder, President at BenQ America Corp. “Simply put, for consumers interested in presenting, sharing, and entertaining, the GP2 Projector offers an experience like no other mini projector.”

The BenQ Joybee GP2 is available now at an MSRP of $699 and will be on display at the 2012 International CES at the BenQ Hilton Suite 28-105. More information about the GP2 Projector is available at http://promotions.benq.us/microsite/miniprojector/.
