An LED lamp has been used inside the C80 that consumes an average power of 30W. It can be used for more than 30 thousand hours on an approximate basis. However, the lamp life is directly proportional to your use.
The display of C80 is based on a single 4 inches LCD panel hybrid LED optical engine technology. The projector can support both Front and Rear projection methods.

The pictures on the output display are having a contrast ratio of 2200:1 under Static, and 10,000:1 under Dynamic projections. A user can take the benefit of installing the projector device smartly with the ultimate aim of saving the space. It can be possible since C80 supports a throw ratio of 1.38:1.

It is suggested to install the device within a range of 1.2 meters to 5.5 meters in the distance from the output projection screen. It can help you to project a big display screen of different sizes ranging from 28 inches to 180 inches in their diagonal length.
But it is recommended to keep the VIVIBRIGHT C80 projector within a range of 1.3 to 3 meter as per a wall or any other projection object. It can help one to get a display screen of size 28 inches to 180 inches in diagonal length with ultimate quality.
You can enjoy viewing your favorite multimedia content on the wall or a projection screen. That too either on a Full or traditional TV-based display screen as per current trend. I can say this by keeping in mind the fact that C80 is compatible to project the pictures with an aspect ratio of 16:9 and 4:3. A user can adjust the screen size by 25% Zoom whenever required.
All thanks to the manufacturers for providing the diffuse reflectance imaging technology in C80. Because this technology can protect our eyes from direct reflecting light coming from the wall or projection screen. A big reason people should replace their television screens with affordable portable projectors.
What are the Hardware Specifications of C80 Projector?
A user has to give an AC power supply of 50-60Hz. 90-240V or DC IN 12V at 5A to C80 machine. So that it can run properly without any possibility of issues. The hardware of the projection machine has been designed in a way to bear both front and back shocks
At the same time, I liked the fact that C80 works very silently. It has been officially calculated that the VIVIBRIGHT C80 projector can produce a noise output of less than 28dB. Hence, it is a good thing to enjoy the display of a projector machine. That too while projecting the images or presentations slides without any background sound.
The Interface ports on the device includes a headphone jack, two USB ports, an HDMI port, a VGA port, and a power input port.

The internal lamp that has been used in the projector hardware can consume almost 30W of energy. However, if we take the whole projector machine into our consideration, then C80 consumes a total power of 60W.
How is the Sound Performance of C80?
A user can experience a stereo mixing sound from the separate cavity on the VIVIBRIGHT C80 projector body. It has been provided to dissipate the speaker sound output completely. Also, if we talk about the audio files, then you can play some formats on the device like .mp3, .mp1, .wma, .mp2, and DTS.
It has built in only one 8Ω, 5W speaker unit. Hence, I am bit disappointed here since I do not think there is any person on earth who do not want to listen to stereo music. But it is not the case under personal use. If you like to install the C80 machine near to you, then the quality sound from an internal audio system of the machine will not be going to be a big problem for you.
However, you will be surprised to know about the fact that the projector system has an inbuilt high fidelity audio system. It sounds cool, but in reality, it is not the case. The best solution is to take the help of high-quality external speakers with the projector hardware.
