In addition, the GP20 offers simple plug-and-play and wireless streaming to allow users to share HD-quality presentations, movies, videos, photos, and games on a display up to 240 inches. For a big viewing experience in tiny spaces, the GP20 Projector provides a display of 60 inches at distances down to 1.5 meters. Audio can be played through the unit’s two built-in 3-W SRS speakers or through external speakers via the Audio Out port.

The GP20 Projector is packed with multimedia connectivity including USB and SD card viewers and a document viewer for Microsoft® Office and PDF documents. A plug-and-play USB feature allows for a PC-less experience. Users simply save content to a USB thumb drive, plug the drive into the projector, and project the content without the need for a PC or file conversion.
