Scitec pocket projector
Scitec Japan recently announced the upcoming launch of its VLP-100 pocket projector based on a four LED system manufactured by German company OSRAM. The projector weighs in at 2.2lbs and measures approximately 7.1 by 4.3 by 2.2 inches, although its resolution is on par with that of some smartphones, at 320x240. The VLP-100 features a maximum brightness of 350 lumens and a native aspect ratio of 4:3.
It can throw up images up to 50 inches in size, and its contrast ratio is 150:1. Two 2W stereo speakers are built into the VLP-100, with a mini stereo jack acting as the input.
The VLP-100 will be available for purchase in Japan by late October, priced at the equivalent of nearly $350. Along with the projector, Scitec announced a 50-inch screen it will release on the same day meant to work with the projector, priced at about $85. [via Impress]
