Sony launches powerful, pocket-sized mobile projector for enhanced audio-visual experiences

MP-CD1 Mobile Projector

Sony today announced that the ultra-portable MP-CD1 Mobile Projector is arriving in Europe in Spring this year. Fitting easily in the palm of your hand, the MP-CD1 can project content up to 120 inches in size from a short distance of approximately 3.5m. This truly versatile projector, which weighs only 280g, instantly transforms any surface into a wide screen and operates almost silently, making it perfect for on-the-go business presentations, gaming, outdoor events or movie nights with the family.

The projector’s vibrant display uses DLP® IntelliBright™ technology[i], which employs advanced image processing algorithms to boost brightness without compromising on battery consumption.

The projector’s unique design allows it to minimise heat while still maintaining high brightness, in a pocket-sized form factor that has been recognised with an iF 2018 Design Award. With a rating of ANSI 105 lumens and 5,000mAh built-in battery, users can project clear and bright images for up to two hours of projection time. Usage time can be extended by simply charging via the standard USB-C port, even whilst the device is in use, thus eliminating the need for carrying a proprietary AC adaptor which can easily be forgotten. If the projector needs to be used outdoors, the MP-CD1 can be easily charged from a portable power bank.

With a super speedy boot up time of 5 seconds and a host of simple connectivity options via the HDMI connection, content can be taken from a range of sources including a PC or even PlayStation and shared with the whole room in just seconds. This eliminates any disruption in continuity of a business meeting and an optional HDMI dongle[ii] enables wireless connectivity with a variety of devices including smartphones and tablets for watching streaming content, thanks to simultaneous powering from a USB port to the dongle even during projection.

The projector’s auto keystone correction ensures a full-screen display without distortion, even when projected from an angle, while dynamic picture mode enhances images and videos to optimal brightness and saturation. A standard tripod socket is also located on the underside of the device to facilitate projection on any surface – even ceilings.

The MP-CD1 will be available in Europe in April 2018, priced at approximately €400.
