Vivitek Qumi Z1H and Z1V portable projectors available

Social projection

If you’re a social film fan who would rather take the movie to the party rather than limit the viewing venue to just one place, then the Vivitek Qumi Z1 projector series might be just for you.
Vivitek has announced that its complete range of Qumi Z1 Series portable projectors - comprising the Z1H and the Z1V (which has been available since the summer) - is now available.

The new Qumi Z1 Series brings portability, image and sound, and hours of large screen entertainment rolled into an all-in-one, compact-sized unit. As it only weighs 660g, the Qumi Z1 is easy to take to any event where an entertainment centrepiece is needed.

The Qumi Z1 Series uses an advanced multi-media player and can display virtually any content as an image of up to 100” from any mobile device. Users can display their favourite apps or stream online content directly via a Wi-Fi connection to the Qumi Z1H. Options are to wirelessly mirror a mobile phone screen, or preload content to the on-board storage, or directly mirror their content from USB-C for certain compatible Android phones, via a cable. It is equally easy to connect the Qumi Z1V to USB or HDMI sources too.

For those who consider a smart phone’s screen too small and its volume too quiet for true entertainment satisfaction, the combination of up to a 100” image and the built-in 2x5W stereo sound performances steps up what is achievable to well above that available from mobile phone hardware.

The built-in battery supports the audio-visual experience for up to two hours. Alternatively, switching to speaker-only mode and using the Z1 like any Bluetooth portable speaker, provides up to six hours of playback, Furthermore, the LED-based Qumi Z1 series comes with 30,000 hours of operation and there’s no need to change any lamps.

The Qumi Z1 Series is now available as two models. The Z1H can project a screen size of up to 100 inches at 300 lumen brightness level with HD720p resolution. Texas Instruments’ established and respected DLP technology delivers sharp and crisp images with a 10,000:1 contrast ratio. It is equipped with Wi-Fi to connect to the user’s favourite online content, while other preferred content can be preloaded onto the 8Gb onboard memory of the Z1H.

The Qumi Z1V enables users to enjoy projection with 480p resolution with a screen size of up to 75 inches at a brightness level of up to 250 lumens and a 10,000:1 contrast ratio. Like the Z1H, the Z1V benefits from the convenience of an HDMI-in interface to make it even easier to connect it to laptop devices.

Commenting on the introduction of the Qumi Z1 Series, Holger Graeff, General Manager, Vivitek EMEA, said: “Sharing and enjoying content is one of the most popular pastimes between friends and family today, and the Qumi Z1 Series makes this even easier, wherever users may be. The Qumi family has already established itself as a highly popular portable entertainment device and the Qumi Z1 Series brings a new dimension in excitement wherever it is taken.”

The Qumi Z1V and the Qumi Z1H are available immediately. The price for the Z1V is £390.00 including VAT, while the Z1H is £490.00 including VAT.


For entertainment away from the home, a means of streaming and projecting music videos, funny YouTube clips or just background images may be an ideal way of adding atmosphere to a get-together. Or, perhaps it could be used as a way of relaxing in the evening while on holiday, when AVForums members are away from their beloved AV kit. Let everyone know if you could find a use for one of Vivitek's portable projectors.
