XGIMI has launched the MoGo 2 and MoGo 2 Pro projectors announced for the end of 2022. The two products are aimed at a broad target group as entry-level models and are intended to enable home cinema experiences in high quality for comparatively little money.
Portable, bright and with sound
Both models are designed as portable projectors that can thus be used regardless of location. However, they rely on a mains or powerbank connection to do so. For both models, XGIMI relies on the Light Engine, an in-house developed technology that uses high transmission coated lenses to reduce light loss in the projection light path. This achieves a brightness of 400 ISO lumens, which in combination with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 (MoGo 2 Pro) or 1280 x 720 pixels (MoGo 2) should ensure razor-sharp images.
Added to this is a fab space coverage of up to 90 percent of the DCI-P3 color space standard, which ensures particularly vivid color reproduction. In addition, XGIMI relies on the D65 color temperature standard for the MoGo-2 series, which it says is frequently used in Hollywood films. This is to achieve the most faithful color reproduction possible, which many TVs and projectors cannot do because their color temperature standard differs too much from that of the recording. According to XGIMI, this is how the film should really come into its own.
The basic equipment of the two new projectors is rounded off by two 8 W speaker units each, which are supposed to enable a three-dimensional and intensive sound experience in the whole room with low high frequency loss. At the rear, there is a bass diaphragm window through which the movement of the diaphragm can be observed during sound output. The speaker also has four modes that provide optimized sound for movies, sports, music and news, respectively.
MoGo 2 Pro: Intelligent Screen Adaption 2.0
The Pro model of the new series also features Intelligent Screen Adaption 2.0. This is a technology that ensures uninterrupted automatic keystone correction and optimized autofocus. Thus, movies are supposed to be played back without annoying interruptions. Automatic keystone correction and focusing can be performed from different angles. It also offers automatic eye protection: if someone moves just in front of the projection screen, it is dimmed to prevent glare. This new technology is not used in the MoGo 2. Here, XGIMI relies on the previous version instead. The new technology was announced together with the MoGo 2 Pro at the CES in December.
Prices and availability
The two new projectors are available now from the manufacturer as well as Amazon. They will also be available at electronics retailers starting April 25. Prices are 399 and 599 euros, respectively.
