Beamers are usually highly inflexible and difficult to operate. If we buy a beamer, we usually have to go through a lengthy assembly process, after which the device is firmly attached to the ceiling. If we want to use it in another room, we are faced with a problem because we have to dismantle it and install it again. With the GV1 from BenQ all this should be completely different. This device is a mobile beamer that can easily be set up and used anywhere. We wanted to test whether the device is actually as practical as it claims to be. The following lines tell you more about the mobile beamer.
Set-up and Operation
The supplied remote control must be used to set up the beamer. Operating instructions are not included, but are not required. All steps necessary for setup are displayed graphically on the beamer. The user only has to follow the steps shown.
In the test we were able to set it up in a very short time without any problems. Updates can be installed as soon as the beamer is integrated into the home WLAN network. The beamer is also equipped with a battery that lasts up to three hours, a mains cable that can be connected if required, an on/off switch, volume buttons and a tripod thread. As was to be expected with a mobile beamer, the device is very small and handy.
All in all, setup and operation are child’s play thanks to the graphic accompaniment and can be completed in no time at all.
After setup, the connection can be established with various devices – usually wirelessly at the touch of a button. More about the connections and connection possibilities can be found in the next section of our report.
