Gigabyte Technology, a leading manufacturer of mainboards and computers, has introduced its new Gigabyte Brix Projector, which comes with integrated 75 lumen LED backlit mini projector and stereo speakers. The ultra-small form-factor computer will be aimed at various usage scenarios, including business, education and entertainment purposes.
“Adding a powerful mini-projector to a device that is extremely portable and compact, opens up a wealth of possibilities and usage scenarios. The Brix Projector is pushing the boundaries of innovation further than ever, creating a device that breaks the mold in almost all respects,” commented Henry Kao, Vice President of Gigabyte motherboard business unit.
Based on Intel Core i3-4010U “Haswell” processor with Intel HD Graphics 4400 adapter, Gigabyte Brix Projector features up to 16GB SO-DIMM DRR3L (1.35v), one mSATA SSD slot (up to 256GB), Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11b/g/n + Bluetooth v4.0 Mini-PCIe module (included), Gigabit Ethernet, four USB 3.0 ports as well as one HDMI and one mini-DisplayPort outputs.
The integrated 75 lumen DLP (LED backlit) mini projector from Texas Instruments features WVGA (854*480) resolution, 16:9 aspect ratio, 900:1 contrast ratio, variable 7” – 85” projected image size, adjustable focus, 1.5W integrated Dolby stereo speakers and HDMI input port. The projector features multi-color processing for accurate and vibrant on-screen colors.
The Brix Projector from Gigabyte is a simple integrated device that combines a full high-performance PC with a mini projector that can be deployed in almost any situation, needing only a blank wall. Despite its integrated projector, the device retains its ultra-compact and portable form factor, making it one of the most versatile PC devices on the market. The Gigabyte Brix Projector can also be used with an independent input source via its rear panel HMDI-in port, this is because the integrated projector can be independently powered on and used much as regular mini projector.
Gigabyte Brix Projector is great for business users on the go, sharing a presentation, spreadsheet or website with colleagues or customers in an instant. Students living away from home can use the Brix Projector as their main PC for assignments and course work, using the projector to enjoy movies and other entertainment during down time. Families will also appreciate being able to conveniently use the BRIX in any room in the home. Young children can enjoy cartoons in the bedroom, while older children can use it for everything from homework to PC gaming.
