Mitsubishi Digital Electronics showed two new, tiny business projectors at the recent InfoComm show in Las Vegas. Possibly the world’s smallest projectors, the PocketProjector and PocketProjector SD each weigh in at 14 ounces and fit easily into a purse, coat pocket or the palm of a hand.
These much smaller versions of Mitsubishi’s powerful professional business projectors are the perfect tools for small, collaborative meeting environments such as darkened private offices or cubicles, making a larger venue unnecessary. The PocketProjector can be battery powered or used with a universal car adapter to facilitate a truly mobile presentation.
For personal presentations in intimate business settings, the Pocket Projectors have some of the shortest image throw distances of mobile projectors on the market today. Users can easily create a 20-inch diagonal screen with just over a foot of projection distance and a 40-inch image in less than a yard. The SD version of the projector is equipped with a secure digital memory card slot allowing photographs and any files that have been saved in PDF format, such as a PowerPoint presentation to be viewed with ease. The retail launch pricing is $799 for the basic model and $899 for the SD model.
