Sony has announced that its pocket-sized mobile projector, the MP-CD1, will be arriving in Europe this Spring.
Fitting easily in the palm of your hand and weighing only 280g, the MP-CD1 can project content up to 120 inches in size from a distance of approximately 3.5m. Sony says the ultra-portability makes it “perfect” for business presentations, gaming, outdoor events or movie nights with the family.
With a rating of ANSI 105 lumens and 5,000mAh built-in battery, users can project clear and bright images for up to two hours of projection time. Charging is via a standard USB-C port, meaning the device is compatible with portable power banks.
The HDMI connection means content can be taken from a range of sources including a PC or even PlayStation and shared with the whole room in just seconds.
An optional HDMI dongle enables wireless connectivity with a variety of devices including smartphones and tablets for watching streaming content, thanks to simultaneous powering from a USB port to the dongle even during projection.
The projector’s auto keystone correction ensures a full-screen display without distortion, even when projected from an angle, while dynamic picture mode enhances images and videos to optimal brightness and saturation. A standard tripod socket is also located on the underside of the device to facilitate projection on any surface – even ceilings.
The MP-CD1 will be available in Europe in April 2018, priced at approximately €400.
