MP160 and MP180 offer more efficient way of working with added brightness.

Press release:
Diversified technology company 3M today announced two new market-leading models in its family of pocket projectors designed to help simplify and enhance the working life of the mobile professional. The MP180 offers 30 lumens of brightness and a full two hour battery life with 4GB internal memory. The MP160 offers a more streamlined, straightforward pass-through device for those that just want to connect and go.

“These new models mark the emergence of the latest, leading-edge pocket projector technology and are stirring up great excitement among those that have been tracking pocket projection since 3M launched the first device in this category in 2008,” said Nisrine Chahine, Display & Graphics Division, 3M. “The 30 lumens of brightness and a full two hour battery life are the key competitive points of the MP180 and MP160. They offer something for everyone with their feature rich specifications and, most importantly, they are good for business, putting the wow factor into presentations and opening the door for shared experiences with others.”

The MP180 represents the total, hand-held projector package for the on-the-go business professional, measuring 150 mm x 65 mm x 33 mm and weighing 338 grams. Laptops can be left at home with this portable office, which features 4GB of built-in memory, a micro SD card slot, and USB so people can literally grab PowerPoint and MS-Office files, including Word documents and Excel spreadsheets, plus videos and photos, and be ready to present at any impromptu moment. A touch screen control panel makes operation effortless, while integrated Wi-Fi connectivity and Bluetooth compatibility gives users the power of the internet in their pocket, enabling file transfer from a laptop or smartphone, as well as internet browsing and web content streaming.

For business professionals that do not require an abundance of attributes or on-board memory, the MP160 is an ideal plug and play connectivity device. It has a smaller, slim line form (150 mm x 65 mm x 30.5 mm) to fit-in-the-pocket for convenient transportation and storage. The MP160 enables projection of high quality videos, photos and games of up to 80 inches onto nearby walls, ceilings, screens or clear, flat surfaces.

The MP180 and MP160 share the same 30 lumens of brightness, full colour gamut, an unprecedented, full, two hour battery life and SVGA resolution. Both connect to any device with a video output, including laptops and Netbooks, smart phones, digital cameras, camcorders, DVD players, games consoles and MP3 players, making it easy to share presentations, videos, photos and other documents while on the go. Both have a rechargeable Lithium polymer battery and a long lasting LED light source (20,000-hour life).

The two new pocket projectors also feature two, three-quarter-watt embedded speakers and an audio output jack for occasions where richer sound is required. Furthermore, the pocket projectors have an integrated flip stand, tripod and a variety of input cables. Optional accessories include an adaptor cable for Apple products, a car charger and for the MP180, an optional remote control unit.
