800 ANSI Lumens

The M3000 ultra portable projector delivers 800 ANSI lumens. It is 40% brighter than average competitor models in its class. 

Native 1080P

The projector offers a native 1920*1080 resolution with 4K decoding supported, so you can enjoy high resolution pictures on the big screen without any image loss.

DLP-Link 3D

M3000 supports DLP-Link 3D. With the optional active 3D glasses, you can enjoy life-like 3D viewing experience at home.

Vivid Colour 135% of BT. 709

Brilliant colours are critical for home cinemas. BT.709, the industrial standard for HDTV accurate colour reproduction requires a 100% BT. 709 coverage.

However, the M3000 goes way beyond the industrial standard, with its 135% of BT.709 coverage so you can expect the most accurate and vivid colour to be displayed.

3rd Generation MEMC Technology


MEMC is a frame interpolation technique developed to enhance the quality and smoothness of video. The process artificially adds additional frames between original frames.

The latest 3rd generation MEMC allows precise frame-interpolation control, boosting the image processing capability by 30%. It effectively eliminates motion judder in high-speed sequences meaning fast moving images such as live sport look great without any image dragging or blurring.

HDR10 More Contrast

The M3000 fully supports HDR10 which doubles the perceived image brightness AND increases contrast via a comparison of the light reflected from an all-white image and an all-black image.

Effectively HDR10 means users won’t suffer from missing details and will see more in-depth colour.

Auto Focus (AF) Stay Sharp

The full time step-less AF works in the background. It detects any slight movements and auto corrects the focus even before you see it.

Keystone Adjustment 8 Points

To prevent your image moving out of parallel or keystoning, the M3000 offers an impressive 8 point keystone adjustment instead of the usual 4 point correction.

This means a perfect image is always projected regardless of the position of the projector which offers the maximum flexibility on your home cinema setups. In particular this can be useful when projecting at the side of the room instead of having to be dead center.

Sound 5W*2 Speaker 

The projector’s built-in 5W*2 speaker with Multi Pre-tuned sound themes offer a truly great sound experience.

It’s also loaded with multi sound quality enhancement technology including Speech Enhancement, Bass Boost and crisp treble performance.

The built-in Bluetooth model allows the external speaker/sound system to be connected to the projector without messy cables.

High quality optical S/PDIF sound output, enjoy enhanced high quality sound via the optical S/PDIF port and connect a Dolby digital 5.1 sound system to the projector without any loss of sound quality.

Lifespan 3000 Hours

Forget about expensive bulb replacements, maintenance and colour/brightness or image deterioration associated with traditional lamp projectors. The M3000 replaces all these concerns with its LED light source and a 30,000 hours lifespan.

Powerful Processor MTK 9652 Chipset

MTK9652 chipset is almost exclusively deployed for 8K TV. M3000 is the first home cinema projector to operate the MTK9652 chipset.

With 4*Cortex-A73 CPU and 2*Mali-G52 GPU plus 3+32GB memory on board, it outperforms all competitors in its class as of today and guarantees a smooth smart TV experience.

Connected All the Options

The M3000 projector has all the key connection ports required for external AV devices including HDMIR (ARC enabled), 3.5 Audio Output, USB, RJ45 ethernet and Optical S/PDIF.

It also supports dual-band 2.4Ghz/5Ghz WiFi and Bluetooth for wireless connections.

Remote Easy to Control

The Bluetooth remote allows full control over the projector functions including quick access to focus adjustment and air mouse functions.

Unlike traditional IR remote, the remote works at any angle and within 15 meters of the projector. 

The air mouse can be activated with a simple shake so you can easily interact with the menus, Smart TV or Android interface just like a normal PC mouse. 

Optimised Cooling System No Overheating

Overheating will cause product failure on smaller devices and reduce the projector’s lifespan significantly.

The M3000’s powerful cooling system with its side honeycomb mesh design offers fast heat dissipation leading to a longer more durable lifespan.

Installation Flexible Placement Anywhere 

M3000 has a tripod socket with the standard 1/4” screw. 

You can use any universal 1/4″ projector floor/wall/ceiling mount to install the projector or you can simply place it on a table top.

See above for positioning at side angles.

Giant Screen 100″ at 2.5m (up to 150" at 4m)

M3000 is a short throw projector with a 1.2: 1 throw ratio 

A 100” screen can be projected just 2.5m away from the screen (2.66m measured from the back of the screen).

 A Gaming Projector 28ms Input Lag

Input or display lag is the time (measured in milliseconds) it takes for a display device to react and display your commands you’ve inputted from your game console. 

As you might expect, the amount of input lag is vital for competitive gaming where every millisecond counts.

M3000 projector’s input lag reading is less than 28ms which helps you to always stay ahead in a competitive gaming environment.

Android 9.0 based OS CHiQ 7 Smart TV

The new CHiQ 7 OS is a Smart TV OS based on the latest open source Android 9.0.

The UI comes with a simple and user friendly interface.

Because it is Android based, user’s can install many compatible Android apps including YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Kodi etc. which allows the user to access those popular streaming service without any additional devices. 

Apple users dont miss out either with full screen mirroring.
