The Vivitek Qumi Q7 Plus DLP Video Projector features 720p display resolution capability (in both 2D and 3D). Also, unlike most DLP projectors, the Q7 Plus is "lampless", which means that it does not use a lamp/color wheel assembly to assist in projecting images on the screen, but, instead, employs an LED light source in combination with a DLP HD Pico Chip. This enables a much more compact design, as well as eliminating the need for periodic lamp replacement (not to mention lower power consumption).

As a companion to my full review, here is an additional photo look at the features and connections of the Vivitek Qumi Q7 Plus.

To start off is a look at what comes in the Vivitek Qumi Q7 Plus package.

Starting the back is the supplied carrying case, Quick Start Guide, Warranty Information, HDMI Cable, and MHL Cable.

Moving forward, on top of the Qumi Q7 Plus projector, is the CD-ROM (provides full manual guide).

Leaning in the front of the projector is the credit-card sized wireless remote control.

Finally on the left side of the projector is the VGA/PC Monitor Cable, and on the right side is the detachable AC power cord.

Also shown is a partial look at the front of the projector, with the detachable lens cover attached.

Here is a close-up photo of both the front and rear views of the Vivitek Qumi Q7 Plus DLP Video Projector.

Above and behind the lens (on the right side), are the Focus and Zoom controls located in a recessed compartment. There are also onboard function buttons on the rear top of the projector (out of focus in this photo). These will be shown in more detail later in this photo profile.

The bottom portion of the photo shows the rear connection panel of the Vivitek Qumi Q7 Plus.

Starting on far left is the AC power receptacle.

Moving from left to right, first is a USB connection, followed by two HDMI inputs. These allow the connection of HDMI or DVI source components(such as an HD-Cable or HD-Satellite Box, DVD, Blu-ray, or HD-DVD Player). Sources with DVI outputs can be connected to an HDMI input of the Vivitek Qumi Q7 Plus via a DVI-HDMI adapter cable.

Just below the two HDMI inputs is the rear mounted remote control sensor.

Moving to the right of the HDMI inputs is the VGA/PC Monitor input. The output jack allows users to loop an incoming input signal back out to another projector or video display device.

The VGA connection can be used to connect a PC or Laptop, or a Component (Red, Green, and Blue) Video source, device using a Component-to-VGA adapter cable.

Continuing to the right of the VGA inputs is the Composite video input, as well as a set of RCA-type analog stereo inputs, as well as a 3.5mm stereo audio input (green).

Finally, on the bottom right Kensington anti-theft lock slot.

Pictured on this page are the on-board controls (referred to as the Keypad) for the Vivitek Qumi Q7 Plus. These controls are also duplicated on the wireless remote control, which is shown later in this gallery.

Start on the left are the onscreen Menu Navigation and Access buttons.

The button in the center is the Mode/Enter button. The mode feature accesses the picture setup modes, while the enter button activates the onscreen menu selectors.

Moving to the right is the Power/Standby button (green), and a on the right are the Power and Temperature indicators.

When the projector is turned on the Power indicator will flash green and then will remain solid green during operation. When this indicator displays orange continuously. In cool down mode, the power indicator will flash orange.

The Temp indicator should not be lit when the projector is in operation. If it does light up (red) then the projector is too hot and should be turned

It is important to note that all of the buttons available on the projector are also accessible via the provided remote control. However, having controls available on the projector is an added convenience - that is, unless the projector has been ceiling mounted.

For a look at the remote control that is provided with the Vivitek Qumi Q7 Plus, proceed to the next photo.
