Sony introduces pocket-sized DLP projector

Making 4K HDR projection may be a big push for Sony, but it also clearly wants customers to be able to have fun with its products – as seen in the latest iteration of its portable projector.

The Japanese manufacturer has announced the MP-CD1, a pint-sized projector capable of beaming a 120-in screen from a space as small as your hand.

Measuring only 8cm wide, 15cm long and coming in at only 280g on the weighing scales, the portable model joins the likes of LG (12cm – 100-in display), Epson (6cm – 130-in) and Acer (1m – 120-in), bringing small but powerful (although only the latter offers resolution beyond HD) projectors to market recently.

The MP-CD1 incorporates Texas Instruments’ proprietary DLP IntelliBright processing technology and can beam a 120-in screen to any surface from a minimum of 3.45m away. Resolution is not quite HD at 854 x 480, which makes it slightly better than regular definition, with a brightness output of 105 lumens.

You can expect approximately two hours of battery life before it needs recharging via USB port.

The projector will be released next month in Europe, rumoured to be priced at around €400.
