Dangbei Launches Portable 1080p Projector with Built-in Netflix

China-based Dangbei today introduced a portable 1080p projector with built-in Netflix streaming capability.

The Dangbei Neo mini projector launched on Amazon today for $600 (with a $100 discount coupon). Weighing just over 3 pounds and measuring approximately 8 x 6 x 4 inches, the Neo is self-contained with a built-in 12-watt, dual speaker Dolby Audio system and small enough to be easily moved around indoors or outdoors.

The projector is based on DLP technology and uses a 0.33-inch DMD chip to project images up to 120 inches (diagonal) with brightness spec’d at 540 ISO lumens from a lamp rated to last up to 30,000 hours. It is said to cover 90% of the DCI-P3 color space and provides three color temperature settings in addition to supporting HDR10 and HLG high dynamic range (HDR) as well as low latency (down to 30ms) for gaming.

Setup is simplified through a built-in “ToF camera system” that enables automated features — auto focus, auto keystone correction, intelligent screen fit, and intelligent obstacle avoidance — which make it possible to get a decent image regardless of where the projector is placed. Projector operation is described as quiet with an “ultra-low noise level, down to 24dB.”

The projector supports Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi 5G connectivity and comes with a remote control featuring hotkeys for Netflix, Prime Video, and YouTube. Screen mirroring and content casting is supported and the projector provides HDMI, USB, and LAN ports for connecting with a variety of devices.

Never heard of Dangbei? Though unknown on these shores, the brand is apparently making waves in its native country. Dangbei was founded in China in 2013 as a TV network platform and introduced a smart projector in 2019. The company claims its large-screen application store, Dangei Market, has an 80% market share and that Dangbei is the “Top 3” projector brand in China, a position it has secured in less than four years.

Dangbei also owns the Emotn brand, which launched the N1 portable 1080p projector in February for $350 (with a $50 discount coupon). The N1 also features built-in Netflix streaming and is currently selling on Amazon for $309 (with a $50 discount coupon).
