Portable JmGO View Projector comes with powerful surround sound speakers
Home entertainment and media streaming are anyone’s top agenda for a fun weekend in cozy corners of the house. JmGO View Projector wants to make that craving even more entertaining by giving you a hassle free way to enjoy movies, videos, music, games and content from connected devices. Unlike other portable projectors that have speakers comparable to your laptop/smartphone, it has 4W Dolby Digital Plus speakers which create immersive surround sound. That means you don’t have to worry about connecting it to any home theater system for audio output. Moreover, it has a compact cylindrical design which facilitates easy portability.
The projector has 180-inch projected screen with a max. HD resolution of 1280×720 with 1000:1 contrast ratio. The brightness and contrast ratio is acceptable and just like other projectors, the darker the room the more crisp projection you’ll get. For most part the color accuracy is good and if you are expecting true color gamut, then you better not go for a projector at all.
Powered by Android 4.4.4 OS with custom UI, the projector has 16GB internal storage and all the modern day options you would expect in an accessory. It has Miracast, HDMI, Bluetooth, USB and Wi-Fi connectivity options to make sure you stream multimedia seamlessly from your mobile devices or other gadgets. You can do all the controlling of playback/audio/options from your smartphone with a compatible app which is great.
JmGO View has a 15,600-mAh capacity battery which gives 3 hours of video and 8 hours of music playback on full charge. You can also pair it up with JmGO Active Shutter DLP-Link 3D glasses for 3D content viewing.
The accessory is up on Indiegogo for funding and it looks good to get past the funding goal. You can get it for $449 by pledging the amount and shipping is going to arrive by May 2016. If you want to get the 3D glasses too it will set you back $534 for the package.
