Pocket projectors go big screen

by James

Firebox’s Pocket Cinema is rather tiny, but it packs a big punch (not to mention a hefty price tag). But for about $523 USD, business people can not only enjoy a pocket sized projector to use for business meetings, it can project an image from it’s high powered LED screen up to 50 inches wide.

But that isn’t all …

Playing information from SD cards up to 1 gigabyte in size, the Pocket Cinema can also play stereo audio either through its A/V out headphone jack or the built in stereo speakers. Playback controls include a powerbutton, focus wheel, fast forward or rewind (forwards/backwards), menu and entry/OK.

Pocket Cinema is powered by a rechargeable lithium battery, can play back MPEG4 ASF or MJPEG AVI (recommended) file formats, and can convert just about any other video format using the included ArcSoft media software. It can connect through its A/V in/out plug to everything from VCRs to game consoles to DVD players. It’ll even play back video from an iPod with an optional dedicated iPod A/V cable.

The Pocket Cinema is not only great for business meetings, but also parties, and even impromptu outdoor movie nights. But for movies, you’ll want to bring along a few extra batteries due to its really short battery life.

Includes tripod and remote control.

These things look really good – when battery life gets longer, picture size gets bigger and (most importantly!) the price comes down a bit, I can see these being really popular!

For now, though, they are just for rich nerds. I’m not rich enough or nerdy enough to get one of these just yet!

I sure that will be a new fashion not only in b2b market but also attack the current tranditional MP4 or MP3 divice, like apple!!!
