We have heard about the Optoma Pico projector for a while now. Last week, we heard that this projector was released in the UK. Recently Optoma has announced that this projector is also finally available in the US as well. The Pico, or PK-101 as it’s also called, features a native 480 x 320 resolution, 9 ANSI lumens, and an impressive 1000:1 contrast ratio. This model uses a DLP display panel that was provided by Texas Instruments. The Pico is able to display images up to 60 inches, diagonally, from a distance of less than 9 feet away. The beauty about this projector is that it is about the size of a candy bar and is almost as light as one. This projector could easily fit into any pants or coat pocket. The only connection that this projector has is an AV input that allows you to connect to just about any mobile device that can support video content. The light source for this projector is a very Eco friendly LED light that is able to last for up to 20000 hours before needing replaced. In addition, the Pico comes with an internal battery that allows the projector to run for up to ninety minutes before needing charged, which is long enough for any presentation. The Pico can be ordered through Optoma or any of their registered distributors with a suggested retail price of about $400.
