    Projectors to consider:

  • What Is The Smallest Image I Can Project?

     

     

     

     

     

    Want to know the smallest size image your projector can create?

    Most traditional projectors struggle to project anything less than A4 size images whereas the Pico Genie range of projectors can project ultra small images as low as 12cm x 12 cm in sharp focus with an ultra bright image just 10cm away from the screen.

     

    Here is a contrast of the Pico Genie P50 Pro projecting at 12cm square versus the A4 standard image (45 cm away).

    It’s ideal for artists or anyone wanting to use a projector for creative installations in small places as the projectors are not much bigger than match boxes and have good battery power as well.

     

    The Pico Genie P100 is also very popular with artists and used for installations in museums and visitor attractions around the world or for creative pieces hidden inside sculptures.

    The event has been organised to highlight the telecom giant’s partnership with England Rugby. With the upcoming World Cup due to start on Friday, this huge stunt allows fans to have their tweets projected onto the O2 by using the hashtag #WearTheRose.

    Wear The Rose

    The 68 projectors and 144 moving headlight fixtures will be lighting up the O2 for the duration of the world cup, that’s a whole 7 weeks! Fans tweets will be visible from sunset to midnight and tweeters selected for broadcast will be sent an exclusive image of their message on the O2.

    This magnificent event was launched last week with England Official singer Laura Wright performing Jerusalem (English National Anthem). Laura performed from the roof of the O2 whilst being engulfed by the famous British Red Rose.

    Nina Bibby, marketing and consumer director at O2, said: "This is the pinnacle of our 20-year partnership with the England Rugby and is the ultimate demonstration of O2’s support for the team. We’re calling on the entire country to show their support and now we are handing over the incredible opportunity for fans to tweet their messages on The O2 to make the team feel like giants and inspire them onto victory."

    Why not create your own huge projection in your home? Our projectors can create an image over 100” or more, perfect for having all your friends and family round to support England’s campaign!

  • Want To Enhance Your Brain with 3D Media?

     

     

     

     

     

    Enhance Your Brain with 3D Media!

    New research has suggested that watching 3D media can enhance your brains cognitive processing and improve your reaction times! Visual-tech company RealD and a group of neuroscientists say that watching a 3D film can give viewers a 23% incease in cognitive processing and an 11% increase in reaction times.

    The tests were carried out at Vue’s Picadilly cinema in London. Participants in the test were shown 30 minutes footage of Disneys new film Big Hero 6. First in 3D and then the same footage in 2D. Results proved reaction times were 5 times higher than that of watching same 2D footage. Neuroscientist Patrick Fagan said “people are living longer and there’s a decline in cognitive brain function in old age... The inital results of this study indicate that 3Dfilms may potentially play a role in slowing this decline.”.

    Are you ready to explore the potential of 3D technology in your own home? Check out our Pico Genie M400 Pro mini projector!

    Renouned for being one of the brightest mini projectors on the market the M400 Pro is 3D ready out of the box.

It only needs a Chromecast type dongle for Apple devices.
      • Pico Genie M100 (Wifi) – this is a 65 lumen projector which has DLNA inbuilt (ios Apple compatible) and connects via wifi in the same way as the chromecast dongles. Effectively its got the dongle built in.
    2. Connect Projector via HDMI wire - via Apple Digital AV adaptors for tablets, phones (see this for full details iPad/ iPhones) or to MacBooks
    3. Connect Wirelessly via HDMI dongles
      • Ideal for mirroring your device’s screen eg using Apple TV or Chromecast dongles
      • This Computerworld article is the most comprehensive explanation of pros and cons and it lists 10 dongles.
      • Bear in mind you might still need power to the dongle. If using the Pico Genie P100 (white projector) this one has a USB power out feature so it can power the dongle and so it doesn’t have wires trailing to a plug.

    These unique features of the Pico Genie projectors make them very popular with anyone wanting to connect via wire or wire free.
