The 3M Company is introducing two new pocket projectors, the MP160 and MP180 offering 30 lumens of brightness, an unprecedented, full, two-hour battery life and SVGA resolution, making it easy for business professionals to share presentations, video and more virtually anywhere.
Both new pocket projectors were designed with the on-the-go professional in mind. The MP180 allows users to present PowerPoint® files, videos, photos or documents, at the touch of a button. A touch screen makes operation a snap, while Wi-Fi connectivity and Bluetooth® compatibility enable Internet browsing and file transfer from laptops or smartphones. The MP180 also features an integrated MP3 player, 4 gigabytes of internal memory, a micro SD card slot, and USB so people can, literally, grab and go.
For those looking for a more streamlined device, the MP160 offers the same brightness, resolution and portability as the MP180, at a lower price point. This projector is sold with VGA and composite video cables, which makes it easy to connect the MP160 to virtually any gadget that outputs video.
Both the MP160 and MP180 feature more powerful stereo speakers, and an audio output, so users can connect headphones or external speakers. In addition, both have an integrated flip stand, tripod and a variety of input cables, so they are ready to use “out-of-the-box” with a wide range of today's most popular video output gadgets. Available optional accessories include an adapter cable for Apple® products, car charger, and presentation binder.
“The MP180's unmatched versatility and extensive feature set is perfect for the mobile road warrior while the MP160 is an ideal accessory for those who don't need a lot of extra features and prefer a straight pass-through device. And, with two-hours battery life, people can rest assured that they will be able to get through just about any presentation without needing to recharge.”
