Sony Pico Projector module promises a resolution of 1920×720 pixels with a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio
The whole system is set to create a perfect HD resolution and focus free projection no matter the angle or the distance of the surface
Today the Japanese giant Sony announced it has been working on a pico projector module with HD resolution and focus-free image projection. The device is equipped with an independently developed image processing system by Sony and it operates with LBS, the so called laser beam scanner.
The best thing about it is that unlike other pico projectors that work with 640×480 or 800×480, this one hits the 190×720 pixels of resolution with a ratio of 16:9 and the module projects content without refocusing.
The whole system is set to create a perfect HD resolution and focus free projection no matter the angle or the distance of the surface where it projects. The tech combines the whole system with Wi-Fi and battery and it fits into a pocket-size projector suitable for projecting content from mobile devices on any kind of surface.
The official publication by Sony features scheme images that explain the features of the small device. The module consists of semiconductor laser, MEMS mirror and a video processor that controls the signal and the image output. The pico projector uses the laser as a source of light reflecting it via the micro-electro mechanical system mirror in order to scan and project the content. In the meantime, the video processor control the semiconductor laser and the MEMS mirror with the precision of a surgeon. According to the blog, the advanced tech of the laser beam ensures the focus of the image regardless the surface or the distance and angle of the projection and it claims that the device can create a cler image to a screen size of about 40 inches from a projection of one meter and about 120 inches from three meters.
The pico projector measures at 52.5mm x 63mm x 7.2mm and focuses the handheld projectors with wireless connectivity that project content from mobile devices. This doesn’t mean that the module won’t end up adopted by other devices as well, for example a projector smartphone.
