General info

1.lamp life

20000h

20000h

This shows the lifespan of the light source. Projectors need to have their lamps (light source) replaced every now and then.
Audible noise is the noise that a device produces while in operation. Reduced audible noise improves quality.
3.has laser light source
BenQ GS50
BenQ GV1
Laser projectors have a much longer lamp life compared to traditional bulb projectors. The brightness and color reproduction also stays the same, whereas the brightness of bulb projectors can slowly degrade over time.
Audible noise is the noise that a device produces while in use. Some devices have an eco mode for quieter operation.
How much power the device consumes when it's switched on.
6.Battery life

2h

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (BenQ GV1)

The device's battery life (when in use) as given by the manufacturer. With a longer battery life you have to charge the device less often.
This is the lifespan of the light source when using the projector in eco mode.
8.width

190mm

80mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product.
9.height

150mm

155mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product.

Projection quality

1.ANSI lumens

500lumens

200lumens

The light projected by the device is brighter, i.e. it has a higher ANSI lumens measurement.
2.output resolution

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (BenQ GS50)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (BenQ GV1)

The resolution represents the amount of pixels that make up the image. It is a key indicator of image quality, with higher resolutions providing sharper and more detailed images.
3.contrast ratio

100000:1

100000:1

Contrast ratio is the visual distance between the lightest and the darkest colors that may be reproduced on the display. A high contrast ratio is desired, resulting in richer dark colors and more distinctive color gradation.
4.response time

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (BenQ GS50)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (BenQ GV1)

Response time is how long it takes for a display to change the state of pixels, in order to show new content. The less time it takes to respond, the less likely it is to blur fast-changing images.
5.has motorized focus
BenQ GS50
BenQ GV1
You can control the focus remotely, ensuring that the image stays crisp and clear.
6.displays 3D with glasses
BenQ GS50
BenQ GV1
It supports displaying 3D images from devices such as a 3D-compatible Blu-ray player, allowing you to watch films in 3D when using suitable glasses.
The maximum size of image that a device can project without compromising quality.
8.has motorized zoom
BenQ GS50
BenQ GV1
Motorized or power zoom lenses allow the user to remotely press a switch, for example on a remote control, causing the projector to automatically zoom in or out and correct the size of the image.
9.zoom ratio

1.21:1

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (BenQ GV1)

A projector zoom allows you to increase or decrease the size of the projected image without moving the projector. The most common zoom ratio among today's projectors is 1.2, which means you can vary the image size by 20% by simply adjusting the zoom lens.

Connectivity

1.HDMI ports

BenQ GV1
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has lens shift (vertical)
BenQ GS50
BenQ GV1
If the projector is not perpendicular to the projection surface, it will distort the image. Vertical lens shift allows you to correct this distortion so that you can place the projector below or above the projected image (e.g. mounting the projector to the ceiling).
3.has lens shift (horizontal)
BenQ GS50
BenQ GV1
If the projector is not perpendicular to the projection surface, it will distort the image. Horizontal lens shift allows you to correct this distortion so that you can place the projector to the left or right of the projected image.
4.Has a remote control
