Adtec intros VGA projector

Japan's Adtec recently introduced its AD-MP15A liquid-crystal on silicone (LCoS) mobile projector good for resolutions of either 640x480 or 800x600 and a native aspect ratio of 4:3. Meant for quick, on-the-go presentations, its battery life is rated at 40 minutes. Brightness is rated at 15 lumens, while the contrast ratio is set at 200:1.

The projector can be placed anywhere between 5.5 inches to nearly 8 feet from the screen or wall. The AD-MP15A's LED light source is rated at 20,000 hours. Connections include a composite video input, an analog RGB port and a VGA adapter. A built-in 0.3W mono speaker connects via a mini audio jack.

When it reaches the Japanese market in mid-December, the AD-MP15A will cost the equivalent of about $430. In late January, a black version of the device is expected to come to market. [via Impress]

    "Silicon" not "Silicone"

    ... unless you're talking about Liquid Cristal on fake boobies, which I doubt.

    15 Lumens?

    Ummm sounds pretty dull. For lights off only situations. IBM has a little sucker like this and I think it's rated at 150 lumen. Perhaps this spec. report is a typographical error.

    I wouldn't mind having a led powered pocket projector, but I'm not willing to compromise on the lumen. If they could jack these up to 500, then, at short range, they'd be pretty snazzy indeed.
