The Boxlight Bumblebee starts with its Color menu (shown here). The Color menu has the standard goodies – Brightness, Contrast, Gamma, and preset modes (called Brightness modes), as well as color saturation, and where active, Tint.
In addition there is a color temperature control, and separate color controls for Red, Green, and Blue.

Boxlight BumbleBee Projector - Remote Control
The Bumblebee comes with a remote shaped the same as the Mitsubishi PK20′s. There is one additional button on the BumbleBee’s remote control, and the order of the buttons is slightly different. The additional button, however, relates to keystone correction. The BumbleBee remote has two buttons for controlling keystone correction, whereas the PK20 has one, then you control keystone with the arrow keys.
The remote worked well enough The manual says the range is 16 feet, and I definitely had no problem using it up to that distance, getting a decent bounce off of my screen, when needed.
As you can see, there is a power button on the top left. Next come the four arrow keys in a circle configuration, with a center Enter button.
Additional buttons: The two keystone buttons, Hi-Bright button, Computer, Video, Blank, Still, Aspect ratio, and finally, the Auto (setup) button.
