CV-MP01: The Latest Handheld Projector Out Of Japan

CV_MP01(2).jpgCompact projectors seem to be all the rage these days. The latest model, CV-MP01, is very similar to 3M's MPro110 when it comes to specs, but it's quite a bit smaller. With dimensions of 40 x 57 x 59mm and weighing 90 grams, this handheld really redefines portable. The CV-MP01 is an LCOS projector with an LED backlight with a 10000 hour lifespan, VGA resolution and a 4:3 aspect ratio. Looks like you'll be heading to Japan if you want one though.

Dell M109S Versus Optoma Pico PK-101: A Pico Projector Standoff

dell.jpgThe Wall Street Journal has decided to see what all the fuss over pico projectors is about by comparing Dell's M109S and Optoma's Pico PK-101. The term 'pico' not only denotes the small size of these projectors, but also the Texas Instruments chip they use, dubbed pico. While they're definitely much more portable than typical projectors, the projected image quality is the obvious sacrifice.

The 15-ounce Dell M109S only spits out 50 lumens of brightness, while the flyweight 4-ounce Optoma Pico PK-101 only manages 11 lumens. There are two ways to compensate: either darken the room or place the projector very close to the wall or screen you're using. However the Optoma device is marketed as a tool to project media from iPod's and other such devices, so it's meant for on-the-go use. Dell, on the other hand, says the M109S is a netbook/laptop companion that works well for quick work presentations.

As the review turned out, the Dell M109S is a higher quality product. That said, you'll also pay $449 for it, $50 higher than the Optoma's $399 price tag.

Sharp Launches The PG-F255W, It's Latest DLP BrilliantColor WXGA Projector

pgf262w(2).jpgSharp has launched the PG-F255W wide-XGA DLP projector. Built for enterprise applications, the PG-F255W has DLP BrilliantColor technology, can project 720p from HD sources, and 1280 x 720 16:10 resolution from PC's. It's fairly bright at 2500 lumens and has a 2200:1 contrast ratio so it's likely that the PG-F255W displays a fairly crisp picture, further enhanced by an extended color palette from previous models.

The 6.4 pound DLP projector also sports an ultra-quiet fan, an on-screen guide to aid in setup, closed captioning, and an included wireless remote with a built-in screen pointer. Available sometime this month, Sharp's PG-F255W will be priced south of $1000. Check out the full release after the cut.

Hitachi Unveils Wildly Bright 7500 Lumen, 3LCD Pro Projector

hitachi-cp-x10000-sb(2).jpgHitachi looks to be making an attempt to grab some high-end projector market share with their unveiling of the CP-X10000. With 7500 lumens of brightness, the 3LCD CP-X10000 sits in the professional projector range, and also features a 2500:1 contrast ratio, 10-bit digital video processor, ultra wide lens shift, and a handy 10000 hour filter. Its adjustable lens attachment allows for a variety of lenses and throw distances so it should work equally well in a giant theater or smaller conference room. And for a few extra points, Hitachi threw in closed captioning and an RS-232 network bridge. Unfortunately for interested parties, I can't find any pricing or availability information at this time.
