BENQ ANNOUNCES THE GS1, GLAMPING ESSENTIAL

Glamping

1. a form of camping involving accommodation and facilities more luxurious than those associated with traditional camping.

BenQ's new GS1 is the essential item for the glamper or outdoor entertainer.

Whether it be your next outdoor escape, or Friday night movies out back, BenQ's GS1 is a portable 720p projector that is cable free and runs for up to 3 hours from the detachable, rechargeable battery pack.

Enjoy a 60" big screen from just 1m distance (and capable of up to 200"), be up and running in seconds with 'One Touch Setup'.

With a robust ribber case, the GS1 is splash proof, drop proof and can play from just about any source, including USB, or Bluetooth 4.0 streaming.

Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and weighing less than 1kg, the battery pack (which also serves as a 3.7V, 16000mAh power bank) can be swapped out for another for those long movie marathons.

There's 5 dedicated modes of viewing, but Camping Mode speecifically offers slightly higher brightness than standard Movie Mode, making it a perfect fit for anywhere the ambient light is scarce.

It's smart too. BenQ's GS1 runs on Android and can also access Kodi, Plex and many other entertainment related Apps.

During an exclusive demonstration with BenQ recently, StereoNET witnessed the GS1 paired with a 120" screen. While the demonstration was in a controlled cinema space, the GS1 is a highly capable portable unit that will keep everyone entertained for hours.

Watching a big screen in the bush or even outside on a warm summer night just became hassle free. With no wires or cables to contend with, that latest movie or streamed Mundine vs Green 3.0 fight just became a reality.

Available around mid year, the BenQ GS1 Portable Projector will sell for $999 RRP.

Put this one on your Xmas list now. For more information visit the BenQ brand page.
