And a chance to win a Nintendo Switch console with every purchase

BenQ has just launched the GS2 – a wireless portable LED projector designed especially for the Singapore market to maximize home entertainment as families continue to observe safe-distancing measures recommended by the government. GS2 is an all-in-one entertainment device that projects images of up to 80 inches in size, allowing families to enjoy the charm of big-screen projection while supporting fun activities wherever they are, thanks to its wireless and mobility features.

Engineered for family-friendly use, the GS2 is rated IPX2 splash-proof and 0.5m drop-proof. It offers a vibrant LED light display and BenQ-exclusive LumiExpert™, an ambient light-sensing automatic brightness technology that optimizes the viewing experience. It also comes with Eye-Protection Sensors, which automatically shut off light when children get in front, and a Parental Timer to safeguard young viewers’ comfort and vision health.

As families spend more time indoors, media consumption in Singapore has seen a double-digit increase, with gaming (up by 17 per cent) and movie streaming (up by 22 per cent) forming a large part of home-based entertainment. With local cinemas remained closed in Phase 2 of Singapore’s reopening, video gaming, streaming services, and direct-to-digital releases will continue to help local families adhere to the government’s safe-distancing guideline.

We believe that BenQ’s GS2 portable projector enhances the stay-at-home experience for Singaporeans and offers families a fun yet safe way to enjoy each other’s company, be entertained, and even educated. BenQ is dedicated to delivering the thrill of big-screen visuals to every household through versatile offerings, from home cinema projectors to wireless portable projectors.Jeffrey Liang, President of BenQ Asia Pacific Corporation

GS2 is a powerful addition to the home entertainment suite and supports virtually any wireless or wired device. Using Wi-Fi, HDMI, USB-C, or its built-in media reader, GS2 instantly casts and plays oversized audio-visual content.

Powered by ultimately durable Digital Light Processing, the 2015 Academy Award of Merit Oscar® winning technology used in 90 per cent of the world’s digital cinemas, GS2 delivers long-lasting DLP picture quality with precise colours and razor-sharp clarity, coupled with a 30,000-hour maintenance-free LED light source.

Availability

GS2 retails at SGD849 (before GST) and is now available exclusively at BenQ Store on Lazada.
