Fengmi 1500 ANSI lumens projector
The Fengmi 1500 ANSI lumens projector comes with FAV (Feng AdvancedVideo) image quality optimization technology developed by Fengmi Technology. It is optimized for brightness, color gamut, sharpness, skin color reproduction, HDR display, HDMI delay, etc. Its brightness is up to 1500 ANSI lumens (highlight mode). This is more than 150% brighter than conventional projectors. It comes with over 85% NTSC’s wide color gamut and the colour performance is rich and vivid.
It uses an upgraded graphics edge processing algorithm which can effectively distinguish the edge and details of the image object for processing. This also enhances the image clarity. The projector is also optimized for HDMI low latency. The game modes is as low as 40 milliseconds. This represents a 50% improvement over previous products to meet the needs of gamers.
The projection ratio of 1.1:1 is almost the same as the width of the projected image. Thus it is no longer necessary to calculate the placement distance and save space. With a projection surface of 2.5m, you can have a 100-inch 1080P full HD screen.
In terms of design, the Fengmi 1500 ANSI lumens projector has a square appearance. The lens is on the front of the fuselage. The light-emitting panel comes with Corning Gorilla Glass protection as well as a high anti-reflection film. This projector uses a high-performance T972 chip with a maximum frequency of 1.9GHz. This reduces power consumption by 55%. It also supports 8K video decoding. It uses the same MIUI TV system as Xiaomi TV, which includes a large number of video resources. Users can also customize Smart Patchwall depending on their viewing habits.
