Philips has increased the brightness of its new range of PicoPix multimedia pocket projectors to 140 lumens and launched its first model with a built-in free-to-air TV receiver (the PPX 3614TV).
Both developments make the projectors more suitable than ever for showing films, games, photos and TV in sizes up to 120 inches, at home or on-the-road.
For business presenters, a useful Office Viewer function enables all kinds of file formats, including .pdf, .ppt/.pptx, .xls/.xlsx and .doc/.docx, to be projected from a memory stick, PC or directly from the 4GB internal memory of the PPX 3414. Files can be opened, edited and saved without the need to use a PC, enabling users to work on the move.
The new models are the:
- PPX 3414, with built-in speakers, HDMI and USB connectivity, and the option of mains or battery power for autonomous operation;
- PPX 3614, also with built-in WiFi for wireless connection to the internet, a PC, smartphone, tablet or other DLNA-enabled device; and
- PPX 3614TV, with a built-in Free-to-Air TV receiver, so you can watch your favourite shows without an additional device (subject to reception and region).
