Today, the projector is not just a fashionable "trick", which will tell others how you follow the modern trends in technology. The projector is a multifunctional device that will allow you to correctly and efficiently present your own business project to the partners' courts, it is understandable and affordable to demonstrate new material to students or to organize a home party non-trivially, showing successful photos. Recently, the markets have won a miniature model of the projector - a pocket projector. It is about him that will be discussed.
Pocket Projector Features
Once the projector, able to accurately transfer the picture, took up a lot of space. Of course, this caused inconvenience, especially for those who have an active job, which requires constant travel and business trips. This prompted companies to create new class projectors, which occupy very little space and easily fit even into the smallest female handbag. A pocket version of the device is also called a picoprojector.
Surprisingly, the device that can be placed on the palm of the owner, is able to project a decent image on the screen up to 120 inches (3 m). And the intensity of the light flux created by the pico projector can reach about 50-300 lumens, and this is quite enough for a hall where complete darkness reigns. The advantage of a pocket projector, in addition to small size, is considered to be mobility and independence from a laptop or personal computer. Such devices are usually equipped with connectors for memory cards. However, along with this, many models work from a tablet or smartphone, from which material is fed to transfer images to the screen.
Of course, there are drawbacks. The miniature size still affected the picture quality, which is displayed when working. Brightness leaves much to be desired, but to present business ideas or to accompany a lecture - such a model is quite enough.
