VANKYO Leisure 470 Pro – 1080P TFT LCD 5G WiFi Portable Outdoor Projector

If you’re someone that enjoys watching TV series, movies, and even documentaries, then one of the best gadgets that you can get to enhance your viewing experience is an LCD projector. Now, there are many advantages of using an LCD projector to play and watch video-content in comparison to using a Smart TV. While Smart TVs do offer can display video at a relatively decent image quality, they still emit a lot of light, which can be quite straining for your eyesight. On the other hand, LCD projectors work by reflecting light, which is significantly less straining for your eyes, thus making it more comfortable to watch your video content. Moreover, while Smart TVs are limited to a specific image size that’s directly dependent on their screen size, LCD projectors are capable of producing much bigger images, which not only creates an easier viewing experience that’s less demanding for your eyes, but ultimately also makes that whole viewing experience much more immersive. Lastly, LCD projectors also don’t take up as much space as a large Smart TV would. With all that said, check out the VANKYO Leisure 470 Pro.

The VANKYO Leisure 470 Pro is a portable TFT LCD outdoor projector that can display video at a detailed 1080P Full HD quality with up to 170 ANSI lumens of brightness, featuring an adjustable projection size between 39″ all the way up to 250″ from a throw distance that can vary between 4.5 ft. to 25.26 ft., a set of powerful built-in 3W Mono Speakers that can deliver a loud, deep and resonant sound, built-in Controls, and also Universal Connectivity, as it boasts 2 HDMI ports, 1 USB port, one 3.5mm Audio Out, one AV Input port, and a Memory Card Slot, plus 5G/2.4G dual-band Wi-Fi Connectivity for both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz networks.

Designed for outdoors use, this portable TFT LCD outdoor projector is lightweight, and compact, and perfect for watching and enjoying movies, TV shows, and any other video content outside together with family and/or friends.

Now, let’s have a more detailed look at the VANKYO Leisure 470 Pro and talk a little more about everything that this portable TFT LCD outdoor projector has to offer you.

DESIGN & SPECS

Starting with the projector’s size, the VANKYO Leisure 470 Pro comes at a very compact size, measuring just 7.79 inches long by 5.7 inches wide by 2.95 inches tall (198 cm x 145 cm x 75 mm).

In comparison to other popular native 1080p projectors on the market, the VANKYO Leisure 470 Pro is around 40% smaller than most other models of 1080p projectors, which means that this projector barely requires any free space for its installation.

Super-compact, Minimalist & Stylish Design

The projector also features a minimalist and modern design throughout its White body, which comes coated with a glossy finish, and also features a fairly sturdy construction.

Regarding its installation options, you can have it set up in three (x3) different displaying options: Front (installed on top of a table while displaying its image forward into a wall, screen or cloth), Rear (display its image from behind a cloth that’s specifically made either of scrim or bobbinet fabric) or Ceiling-Mounted (having it mounted on the ceiling and having it displaying its image downwards to a wall, screen or cloth while from above).

Moving on to the projector’s image specifications. Since this is a TFT LCD home theater projector, the VANKYO Leisure 470 Pro utilizes a TFT LCD (thin-film-transistor liquid-crystal display) lens, which is powered by the latest LCD technology.

This allows it to display its video at a 1920p by 1080p native resolution, thus making it capable of delivering a detailed and authentic cinema-like image with a 1080P Full HD image-quality for a truly immersive viewing experience.

For its other video-display settings, note that the VANKYO Leisure 470 Pro boasts a 600:1 Contrast Ratio (allowing it to deliver a very detailed 1080P image-quality for ultra-sharp images), a 8-bit Color Processing that allows it to display high-colors within a broad range of colors, and a built-in LED Light (that works together with its TFT LCD lens) that features a maximum brightness-level of 170 ANSI lumens, which helps the projector deliver a very accurate image-clarity.

While the projector’s native display resolution is 1080P, note that the projector does support a total of four (x4) Input Signals (meaning Video Modes) for displaying its video in different resolutions, which include: 576i, 720P, 1080i, and 1080P (reminder that “i” stands for “interlaced” and “p” stands for “progressive scan”).

The projector also supports several different video formats when displaying video, including AVI, MP4, MKV, FLV, MOV, RMVB, 3GP, MPEG, H.264, and XVID, and also supports a few different photo formats when using it to display photos, including .bmp, .jpg, .png, and .JPEG.

Since this projector features a Throw Ratio of 1.40:1 (D:W), it has an adjustable image projection size (i.e. its screen projection size) that can be set as low as 39″, or as high as 250″, from a throw distance that can vary between as little as 4.5 ft. all the way up to 25.26 ft. (maximum projection distance between your target wall / screen / cloth and the projector).

Furthermore, it’s worth noting that this projector can be configured to display its video in one of three (x3) Aspect Ratio Settings, including 16:9, 4:3, or Auto (Auto-Detect).

The projector also integrates a Manual Focus System that allows you to manually perform Keystone Correction Adjustments (via a Thumb-Wheel) between ±15° (vertical only).

Moreover, the projector also boasts a Zoom In / Out function which can be set within a 50% to 100% zoom-variation that allows users to adjust its displayed screen size (best used when you have it mounted onto the ceiling or mounted to a wall).

It’s also important to note that its TFT LCD lens also integrates Anti Blue Light capabilities, as it utilizes a low-blue-light emission in order to ensure that the Leisure 470 Pro is capable of diffusing blue-light reflection in order to ultimately reduce the amount of direct light entering your eyes.

Lastly, for producing sound from your video content, the VANKYO Leisure 470 Pro also comes equipped with a set of two (x2) built-in 3W Mono Speakers (rated to have a Sound Impedance of 4 ohms), which make the projector capable of delivering a loud, deep and resonant sound for an immersive experience while watching your content.

Finally, in terms of its power specs, know that the projector features a Rated AC Power Supply of 100-240V (at 50/60 Hz).
