MP-350 BOXi Mobile Projector checks in at 1.1 pounds.
Elmo's latest projector is a mobile offering that emphasizes small. Small footprint at 5.2 " x 5.6" x 1.7", small output at 68 inches , low price at $650, low heat, low noise, and low maintenance at 20,000 hours for the LED lamp. Even with the small footprint the mobile projector still manages a nice set of connectivity options including RGB/VGA, USB, HDMI and Wi-Fi. A remote and a single speaker round out the projector's features.
With its included carrying case/sleeve and AC adaptor, the BOXi can be up and running within moments and can project a 50 inch image with only 3.3 feet of space between the projector and the projection surface.
Sadly though, while the projector can handle inputs up to 1080p, the output is limited to 1280 x 800. The hope remains, however, that this projector will be followed up a by a higher resolution version. While the model is targeted towards office applications, and can even natively display certain Office formats like PowerPoint, the model follows Elmo's educator's line, and is meant for simple and dependable use, making it perfect for introducing projectors to various family members and vacation getaways.
The MP-350 BOXi Mobile Projector is priced at $650 and is currently available to order.
