Acer C250i Portable Projector

The Acer C250i is a lightweight, portable LED projector with a stand-free multi-angle orientation and the world’s first auto-portrait mode.

Acer C250i Twisted Roll Design

Thanks to its unique twisted roll design, it supports stand-free multi-angle projection. You no longer need a stand or tripod.

When used on its side, just roll it to the perfect angle to project on the wall or ceiling.

Its vertical orientation, on the other hand, supports horizontal wall displays, and automatically activates the auto-portrait mode.

Auto-Portrait Mode

The auto-portrait mode lets you direct project videos or photos in the portrait orientation (like video chats or live-streaming sessions) wirelessly, without black bars on both sides.

Performance

Despite its compact size, the C250i boasts 1080p (Full HD) projection, with a battery life of up to 5 hours on a single charge. You can even use it as a portable power bank to recharge your mobile devices.

Its LED module has a 30,000-hour lifespan, with 300 ANSI lumens of peak bones and a 5,000:1 contrast ratio. It also has a wide colour gamut of 100% NTSC.

Connectivity

Android and iOS users can connect and stream to the C250i wirelessly, but it also comes with a standard HDMI port to support desktop or laptop computers.

It also comes with USB Type C and USB Type A ports to support video outputs from smartphones. You can also insert a USB drive for direct playback without a PC or smartphone.

The ViewSonic M1 + PX747-4K Projectors Briefing + Demos!

ViewSonic just unveiled two new projectors – the portable ViewSonic M1 projector, and the high-resolution ViewSonic PX747-4K projector. They also gave us a demonstration of both models. Find out what they offer over their competitors!

 

The ViewSonic M1 + PX747-4K Projectors Revealed!

Unveiling the new ViewSonic M1 and PX747-4K projectors was Chaw Foo Hong, Country Manager of ViewSonic Malaysia.

“With the M1 ultra-portable projector, ViewSonic aims to share the perfect entertainment companion at home and on the go for our customers,” he said, “And our new 4K UHD projector has been designed for the most demanding users who want to incorporate all that 4K content and into their big screen experience.”

 

The ViewSonic M1 Portable Projector

The ViewSonic M1 (Malaysia | US | UK) is designed for entertainment on-the-go, with a built-in battery that provides up to six hours of power and 16 GB of built-in storage. Its LED bulb produces 250 lumens of brightness, with a 120,000:1 contrast ratio. Paired with a short-throw lens, the ViewSonic M1 can display large images in small spaces.

An integrated smart stand provides for a simple 360-degree setup – allowing users to project their content to a big empty wall or even watch their favourite movies on the ceiling. The stand even doubles as a lens cover, with the M1 automatically powering on for instant use once the lens is uncovered.

A built-in safety feature temporarily turns off the lens when objects are detected too close to the projector. Best of all – the ViewSonic M1 (Malaysia | US | UK) boasts an auto keystone feature that automatically corrects the perspective of the images projected.

The ViewSonic M1 (Malaysia | US | UK)1 also boasts dual harman/kardon speakers and a myriad of connectivity options – USB 2.0 and USB-C ports, as well as Audio Out and HDMI ports. It also has a built-in microSD card slot for storage expansion.

 

The ViewSonic PX747-4K UHD Projector

The ViewSonic PX747-4K (Malaysia | US | UK) claims to be the world’s first high-brightness DLP 4K projector. Offering an Ultra HD resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels at up to 3500 lumens of brightness, it allows users to enjoy their movies without worrying about ambient lighting.

The ViewSonic PX747-4K (Malaysia | US | UK) is built around the same Texas Instruments LDP DMD technology that powers 90% of the world’s digital movie theatres. This guarantees that the PX747-4K will deliver accurate and long-lasting colour with high contrast ratios.

The ViewSonic PX747-4K (Malaysia | US | UK) comes with dual HDMI ports, and HDCP 2.2 support, allowing easy connectivity to 4K Blu-ray players and the PlayStation 4 Pro. Google Chromecast can also be connected directly to its USB port to stream media content. It can also deliver power to your wireless devices, eliminating the need for extra power points.

Lenovo Pocket Projector First Look

The Lenovo Pocket Projector is a palm-sized mobile projector that’s great for mobile entertainment or on-the-go work. You do not even need to tether it to a power source. Thanks to its internal battery, it can project videos and pictures on any suitable surface for up to 3 hours!

It supports multiple input sources. You can load files stored in a USB drive, or a microSD card. You can stream videos and pictures wirelessly via DLNA and Miracast. All of that is displayed at a resolution of 854 x 480 using a DLP chip powered by a 50 lumen LED bulb.

The Lenovo Pocket Projector is designed to be used on all kinds of ad hoc conditions. As such, it not only automatically corrects distortions, it can be rotated 90°. This allows you to project the image onto surfaces at all angles, even upwards at the ceiling.
