RoyalTek outs pico projector, promises more
RoyalTek has introduced what it's saying is the first of a series of pico projectors with its RPJ-2000. It relies on a second-generation 3M LCoS chipset and can throw up images up to 65 inches in size, though only at 640x480 resolution. It is also rated at 14 lumens of brightness, while inputs include VGA and NTSC/PAL TV inputs. There are also two 0.5W stereo speakers for sound reproduction.
RoyalTek is also rumored to launch five pico projectors next year, including a version with a built-in digital TV tuner. While there are no technical details or ship dates available for the projectors, the model with the TV tuner should ship before June.
The RPJ-2000 is certified by Apple for use with iPods and iPhones though requires a $43 adapter kit. The projector itself costs $315. [via SlashGear]
