CES 2014: Screeneo is a short-throw projector that won't break the bank

1:58 /

Philips shows off a short-throw projector that can be placed up to 4 inches away from the wall.

Hey, guys. I'm Sharon Vaknin at CES 2014 taking a first look at the Philips Screenio. Now this is Philips' first short-throw projector. And what that means is that the projector doesn't have to be mounted somewhere across the room. It can be as close as 4 inches to the wall you're projecting on and that screen can go from 50 inches to 100 inches depending on how far away it is. So it's very flexible. What's also unique about this guy is that it uses an LED light engine. So instead of using the traditional bulb that you might have to change after awhile, you don't ever have to replace those LEDs, and Philips claims that it'll give you a nicer, crisper picture. The projector runs full version of Android which gives you access to a sweet of apps including YouTube and other video streaming services as well as DLNA, so sharing files over the same network, and the Miracast, which works with other Android devices. It's also got Bluetooth, of course Wi-Fi, and a bunch of inputs including HDMI, auxiliary and SD card slot and, of course, USB. What's surprising is that built-in is a Dolby Digital 2.1 speaker system. Now usually, if you buy a projector, you'll wanna add on your own audio system. But we took this guy for a spin and I have to say it sounds awesome. Finally, you can't ignore the design. This projector looks really good and it includes this handy-carrying strap so you can take it from place to place and maybe have a little movie viewing party. We don't have an exact release state for the Screenio. But we do know that it will be $799 and it's coming out in summer of 2014. For CNET.com, I'm Sharon Vaknin at CES 2014.
