3M Introduces CP45 Generation II Projector Camcorder

Another new pico projector has been introduced by 3M, the CP45. The new HD camcorder features an embedded pico projector capable of producing up to 20 lumens at SVGA (800×600) resolution from an LCOS imager. The internal 2,100 mAH rechargeable battery of the CP45 is said to run the projector for up to 100 minutes. A built-in personal media player (PMP) can display images and video from the 2GB of on board storage, an optional microSD card, Composite Video input or iPhone/iPad/iPod connection (optional cable required). The CP45 will retail for US$299, but availability was not disclosed.

PMA’s projector market research is now tracking six projector camcorder models, including three from Sony and one model each from Aiptek, Ordro and Rollie.
