Celluon Introduces New Pico Projection Products

Celluon has announced the launch of two new Pico projectors — the PicoPro and PicoAir. The small form factor HD laser pico projectors offer an extended battery life of 2.5-3.5 hours.

They incorporate MicroVision’s patented PicoP® display technology, which utilizes red, blue, and green laser light sources, Celluon’s PicoPro and PicoAir offer clear, always-in-focus HD images up to 250″. For users on-the-go, the PicoAir offers wireless capabilities and the PicoPro offers the added option of HDMI compatibility.

PicoPro and PicoAir Features Include:

  • HD Resolution Laser Pico : 1920 X 720p HD picture with a 16:9 aspect ratio.
  • Always-in-Focus: No need for focus wheel; remains focused even while mobile.
  • Thin, Light, & Truly Portable: footprint the size of a smartphone.
  • Built-in Battery: Minimum 2.5 hour battery life for wireless connection and 3.5 hour battery life for HDMI connection.
  • Built-in Audio: 1W speaker and 3.5mm audio jack.
  • Wide Color Gamut: 80,000:1 contrast ratio and 1.67M colors-200% of NTSC Standard.
  • Wi-Fi: Easy wireless connection for mobile devices via Miracast or DLNA.
  • Wired Connectivity: An added benefit of the PicoPro is the ability to connect to any HDMI-compatible digital device.

The PicoPro and PicoAir will be available for purchase at Celluon.com and several major North American retailers in late January with a MSRP of $299-$450.

Recent end-user surveys by PMA Research have found that perceived brightness and color accuracy of a projector are important features when buyers are considering a mobile projector.
