Sony MP-CD1 Mobile Projector is a pocket-sized ultra-portable projector introduced by Sony at CES 2018. The product measures 83 x 16 x 150 mm and weighs 280 grams. The heart of the projector is Texas Instruments’ DLP IntelliBright technology.
With this small and compact size, you can not expect much higher specification, the resolution stands up to 854 x 480 pixels and the brightness of 105 ANSI lumens. The optical shot allows you to fill a 40″ diagonal at a distance of 1.15 meters, and then reach a maximum of 120″ to 3.45 meters away. The technical specifications make it anyway a device to be used on small dimensions (much closer to 40″ than to 120″, to be clear).
As mentioned earlier, it uses Texas Instruments’ DLP IntelliBright technology which employs advanced image processing algorithms to boost brightness without compromising on battery consumption. Energy is provided by an integrated 5,000mAh battery, which can also be used as a power bank for smartphones or other devices. The full charge guarantees up to 2 hours of usage time (of course you can also use plug to play). There is also an auto keystone correction function that provides full-screen display without distortion even when projected from an angle or onto an uneven surface.
The Sony MP-CD1 Mobile Projector has an HDMI 1.4a input that is compatible with MHL, a USB port, and a tripod mount. The 5V and 3A USB Type-C port also provide support for fast charging. The availability is scheduled for spring 2018 and is priced at $399.99.
