Pico-projectors are all well and good when it comes to the portable beaming of presentations and movies when on the go. The problem with many of them however is that an array of video and audio cables are needed to get the most out of them, often with the video connections incompatible with dinky ultra-portable notebooks.
Acer’s C110 pico-projector looks to answer that problem. Needing neither a power adaptor or display port, it’ll project 100 inch images onto your walls simply by connecting it to a source over USB.
While it isn’t HD quality, it’s specs put it comfortably at the top-end of the pico-projector market. Running at a native WVGA resolution (854 x 480) and maxing out at WXGA (1,280 x 800), it has a 20,000 hour lamp life, 1000:1 contrast ratio and brightness levles of 50 ANSI lumens.
Tiny at just 110x85x25 mm and 175g in weight, it also employs ColorSafe and DLP technology to ensure colour integrity remains top-notch even after prolonged use.
The projector will hit shelves this August, priced £199.
