  • Vivitek Qumi Q2 Projector goes "Lite": Now Cheaper with Higher Contrast Ratio

    Vivitek have launched the Qumi Q2 Lite, the latest member of the Qumi LED projector family. In a nutshell this projector looks identical to the original Vivitek Qumi Q2 (now end of line) but its £50 cheaper and has a significantly higher contrast ratio of 10,000:1 instead of 2,500:1 so its ideal for watching movies.

The Ligher Q2 also does not come with a carry case or come with the same number of cables as the Q2 with the Q2 Lite only including a VGA cable instead of the additional Apple cables.
