Microvision to unveil handheld 'plug and play' Pico projector for mobile devices
Code-named SHOW, Microvisionâ€™s stand-alone pico projector intended for mobile device applications, is powered by the companyâ€™s proprietary, miniature PicoP display engine. Microvision will preview the PDA-sized, fully self-contained, battery operated, full-color laser projector to select global OEMs (original equipment manufacturers), mobile carriers, content providers, development partners and members of the media.
SHOW connects directly to laptops, mobile phones, portable media players (PMPs), digital cameras and other mobile devices to project large, high-resolution images and video onto any surface. The images projected can range anywhere from 12 to 100 inches in size depending upon the projection distance and are always in focus. The production version of the device is expected to offer approximately 2.5 hours of continuous battery life, sufficient to watch a full-length movie without a need for recharging.
Microvision says that SHOW can project a widescreen, WVGA (848 X 480 pixels), DVD quality image. Designed for viewing high-quality projected images in a variety of controlled lighting environments, SHOW offers more than five times the resolution compared with competing miniature projectors that typically only offer QVGA resolution (320 x 240 pixels), says Alexander Tokman, president and CEO of Microvision.
