Fortunately, the days when projectors were extremely heavy and bulky are gone. The future belongs to compact LED-projectors, which was recently confirmed by the South Korean company LG.
LG has announced the smallest and lightest LED projector the company has ever produced. It was named Minibeam Nano (PV150G). The compact LED projector weighs 275g and has a resolution of 854 x 480 dots (WVGA format) with a maximum brightness of 100 lumens. A built-in mono speaker with a power of 1 W is also available to users.
LG offers several options for connecting a projector for image display. So, users can connect it to a smartphone, tablet and PC wirelessly using Wi-Fi. A USB port is provided for playing video from a flash drive. There is also an HDMI connector for connecting external devices. And the built-in 3800 mAh battery will provide the Minibeam Nano with up to two hours of operation without recharging. In total, the LED source will provide 30 thousand hours of operation, which is approximately ten years with daily use for eight hours.
LG has promised that the Minibeam Nano will go on sale in North America, Asia, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America in June. The issue price is about 350 US dollars.
