The Optoma PK301+ Pico Pocket Projector is marvel of modern miniaturization. It weighs in at 8 ounces (227 g) with a standard battery and is capable of projecting images of up to 120" (3 m) for immersive viewing experience. LED projection technology produces rich colors and maximizes brightness. Users can control brightness, contrast, and two color temperature settings to enhance their viewing experience.

With its vivid 3000:1 contrast ratio you can project on a screen or just about anywhere. Next time you're on a road trip sit in the back seat and project a movie or play a video game on the seatback in front of you.

The LED light source is rated to last 20,000 hours. You'll never change the lamp in this projector. So how do you get a decent picture out of a pocket-sized projector? Texas Instruments has adapted its famed DLP projection panel system (the part that forms the image) to the requirements of this mighty mite.

The PK301+ comes with a lithium-ion rechargeable battery that's good for about an hour on a charge whether in eco or normal mode. You can recharge it using the included AC adapter or, at a slower rate, directly from the USB port. Of course you can always run on AC power if there's a socket nearby and save your battery power for when you really need it.

The PK301+ has 28MB of its own internal memory and its microSD slot accepts cards up to 32GB. That means you can bring along tons of movies, songs and photos right in the projector. The PK301+ also projects NTSC and PAL video signals and 720p and 1080i high definition video.

This projector's light weight, battery-powered design and simple controls set the standard for portable projection.
