CES 2014: PicoPix projector gives you a big screen in a small package

2:11 /

Two new portable projectors from Philips let you throw a screen on the wall, no matter where you are.

Hey, guys. I'm Sharon Vaknin at CES 2014 taking a first look at the two new PicoPix projectors from Philips. These of course, as you can see are designed to be portable projectors. They are small compact, really light. But unassuming, they can project a screen up to 120 inches. Packed inside is an LED light engine that can project up to 100 lumens when it's connected to a power source and up to 60 when it's not. It's got a 2-hour battery life. So long enough for watching a movie but you probably wanna carry around your AC adapter with you if it's something that you know you're gonna turn too often. There are few ways to get videos onto this device. The higher-end model, the PPX 3610 is actually Wi-Fi compatible so you can connect other devices to it and transfer videos that way. But both of these projectors have many HDMI, USB and an SD card slot as other options for getting videos on here. The resolution leaves a little bit to be desired. It is 480ps that got standard definition. However, if you're watching a smaller-sized screen say 60-inches, the video does look pretty good. There's also a one-watt speaker not so hot but you can connect your own speaker if you want to throw an input in the back. The PicoPix 3610 model does have a few advantages over the 3410. For starters, it runs a full version of Android and it's got a track pad so you can actually mouse around using the track pad right up here. Another big difference is that there's an Android and iOS app that you can use as a remote control to control this projector. However, both of these guys do come with a remote control. The 3610 PicoPix should come out in February 2014 at $549 while the 3410 is expected to come out during the summer for $449. For CNET.com, I'm Sharon Vaknin at CES 2014.
