The ViewSonic® M1 is an ultra-portable LED projector that delivers convenient entertainment in nearly any room. With a built-in battery and over 30,000 hours of operational life, this projector will deliver years of multimedia entertainment wherever it goes. Weighing less than two pounds, the M1’s compact and lightweight design makes it ideal for moving from room to room, or for indoor/outdoor usage. An integrated smart stand provides for simple 360-degree setup, while also doubling as a lens cover. Once the lens is uncovered, the projector automatically powers on with full brightness for instant entertainment. A built-in safety feature temporarily turns off the lens when objects are detected too close to the projector. Dual Harman Kardon speakers provide crisp and clear sound for multimedia content, while a short throw lens can display large images in small spaces. What’s more, versatile connectivity options include a MicroSD card slot, USB Type-A, and USB Type-C – making the M1 a great option for sharing and displaying videos and other multimedia content.
The integrated Smart Stand provides for simple 360-degree setup, allowing the projector to be placed in different positions at nearly any angle. The Smart Stand also doubles as a lens cover that automatically turns off the projector when closed, and automatically powers on the projector when open.
Integrated Harman Kardon Speakers deliver powerful performance in a small package. These speakers produce deep, loud, 360-degree room-filling sound perfect for music and movies at home, or on the go.
A USB Type-C port delivers fast data, audio, video and quick charging over a single cable.*
*The M1 power adapter must be plugged in for USB Type-C charging. When the M1 is not plugged in and operating on battery power alone, it can still play content from a mobile device connected via USB Type-C, but it cannot charge the mobile device. Please ensure the host device supports video transmission.
For entertainment on the go, a built-in battery provides up to 6 hours* of power so you can watch movies and share videos without the hassle of wires or cables. And thanks to 16GB of internal storage, you can enjoy up to 4,000 songs and up to 4 hours of movies.
*Battery life varies on actual usage.
This projector uses the latest solid-state LED technology that is both mercury-free and lamp-free, offering a greener, filter-free projector solution. The LED light source provides over 30,000 hours of usage* while consuming less than half the power of a typical LCD TV, thereby lowering your total cost of ownership.
*Lightsource lifespan may vary based on actual usage and other factors.
A built-in safety feature temporarily turns off the lens when objects are detected too close to the projector. This is especially useful for protecting the eyes of wandering children or pets from direct light exposure.*
*Eye Protection Safety Auto-Off feature is not available on M1-2 / M1+-2.
Vertical keystone correction helps eliminate crooked and distorted images for a perfectly proportioned picture every time.
