  • 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).

  • Pico Genie M400 on BBC Four's 'Spider House'

    The Pico Genie M400 portable LED projector appeared on BBC Four last night (Wednesday October 29th 2014) at 9pm, helping you get you in the mood for Halloween. 'Spider House' gave an up close and personal look at the Spiders with the help of the M400 to demonstrate.

    If you missed Spider House then just click the image below to catch up on iPlayer (subject to availability on iPlayer)  

    Pico Genie M400 on BBC's Spider House

    Official Press Release for Spider House:

    Ever wondered what spiders really get up to in your home? In this Halloween special Alice Roberts overcomes her arachnophobia to enter a spider-filled house where an astonishing drama unfolds within its walls.

    Inside she meets entomologist, Tim Cockerill, who loves spiders and quickly immerses Alice in the wonders of web building, the secrets of fly-catching and the dangerous spider-eat-spider world they inhabit.

    Tim wants us to welcome spiders into our homes. Think of all the flies and unwanted insects they kill. He takes Alice on a macro mystery tour of the rooms of the Spider House revealing what goes on in the cracks and crannies of our homes.

    Why do we always find spiders in the bathroom? They seem to lie in wait in our bathtubs. And what happens if we flush them down the plughole?  Using powerful macro photography they find out.

    In the dining room, they uncover the complex engineering behind the most beautifully constructed ‘dinner plate’ in the home – a spider’s web.

    In the kitchen Alice witnesses the extraordinary hunting ability of the keen-eyed jumping spider; while Tim finds out how spiders kill their prey using venom.

    In the bedroom, the secrets of spider courtship are revealed. For spiders mating is a high stakes life or death game, where males risk being eaten by females.

    In the nursery we enter an enchanting cocoon where tiny spiderlings struggle out of their exoskeletons – the first of many molts on the road to becoming adult spiders. Meanwhile, down in the cellar, we meet an unexpectedly voracious killer – the Daddy Long Legs.

    Many of us have a love-hate relationship with spiders. The rational side of Alice Roberts understands their benefits, but can she overcome her irrational fears? She faces the ultimate challenge: to spend the night alone…  with the spiders… in Spider House.

  • Pico Genie M400 featured on Gadget Show TV: Outdoor Projection & Camping

    In Series 20 Episode 4 The Gadget Show TV team featured a Wild Challenge Camping event showing all manner of gadgets for the outdoors....


    In the show, Jason Bradbury and Jon Bentley showed off their talents by creating a cinema in a forest while camping using the tiny Pico Genie M400 LED Projector with a huge 10ft x 5.6ft inflatable screen.

    The beauty of the Pico Genie M400 mini ultra-portable projector is its the only projector on the market capable of projecting for long periods on full brightness, as despite its small size and weight, it has a very powerful lightweight battery inside meaning it provides 300 lumens of brightness and can project up to 2 hours on eco mode (1 hour on full brightness 300 lumens).

    The Pico Genie M400 is a very versatile portable device and is used from everything from business, personal use, travel, home cinema and gaming.

    Jon Bentley who regularly reviews big home cinema screens said he was "pleased with the picture quality."

    Jason Bradbury went on to say "it is a stunning picture and its also battery powered which is a really great feature, especially for the outdoors. You can load your stuff onto an SD card or USB so its quite versatile." One thing that took the team by surprise was despite what seemed like relatively low lumens the picture quality punched well above its weight, Jason commented that, "it looks splendid even when its not dark on a 10ft by 5.6 ft screen".

    The inflatable air screen will actually go up to 40 foot and can be pumped up with an electric pump inside 15 mins and strapped to anything nearyby like a tree.

    Jason said "The Airscreen is fantastic. I put it up in about 15 minutes and ratcheted it up to the trees. Im not beyond one of these in my back garden for the kids."
