If you're looking for a projector that can run by itself all day long without mains power then there are not many options out on the market to choose from but it can be done.
There are quite a few pico projectors these days with battery power lasting 1 to 2 hours and some even last 3 hours. But there are a few catches
The brightness on some models can drop by as much as 50% when switched from mains to battery power. This applies to Qumi, Optoma and other brands. Brands like the PIQS and the Pico Genie tend to drop the least
Battery capacities vary from model to model eg the Pico Genie M550 Plus has a 13000 mah battery without it being too heavy a projector and any drop in brightness is hardly noticeable to the
eye. The next closest is around 8000 mah on Qumi products.
What do you do after 3 hours and the battery goes flat? The best option here is to invest in a portable battery that's designed for pico projectors such as the Qumi battery. This offers 18000 mah of additional power so on the Pico Genie M550 Plus it easily double the battery life to 6 hours and over 8 hours if run in eco mode.
The Qumi battery is compatible with projectors with the following DC 16v to 20v, DC 9v to 12v.
It also works to charge other equipment like phones and tablets via a USB output as well as a 19v input.

If you need a super bright projector for an exhibition, hall or corporate environment but dont want to spend a fortune on maintenance or replacing bulbs then this laser true 4k Casio XJ L8300HN might be the projector for you.
The video below shows Alan Garratt from Casio demonstrating the Casio XJ-L8300 projector at ISE 2019 so you can see what this projector looks like in reality.
Alan explains that connectivity wise it has everything anybody could ever want. The image quality is superb even under bright exhibition lights and the image can be increased significantly beyond the size shown here.
The projector has keystone correction and a huge lens shift option which means you wont have hassle installing it.
In addition it has a 5 year warranty (or 10,000 hrs usage) and is pure laser rather than LED so there are never any of the worries lamp projectors suffer from with images going dim mid presentation.
As Alan explains, another real plus point of the Casio XJ-L8300 is if you need to install the projector into an inaccessible area then you can do so without the worry of needing to get access to the projector again to replace bulbs or carry out any maintenance.
This projector is great for schools, churches, museums, halls and businesses with a keen eye on great 4k image quality without the cost and hassle of maintenance and bulbs. For many organisations, once the time factor of downtime is factored in the Casio XJ-L8300 becomes a no-brainer with its 5 year warranty despite its large price tag - after all time is money!

Fuji are perhaps more know for their optics and cameras than they are for projectors, so you maybe surprised to learn Fuji have now entered the projector market. Not since Casio launched their ground breaking laser / LED projectors has the projector market seen such a revolution in a projector.
The new model will be called the Z5000, shown at ISE 2019 Exhibition in Amsterdam tomorrow and officially launched the 13th Feb 2019 and its sure to impress the market on many levels. Its packed with unique features and has a high specification. The biggest trick up Fuji's sleeve is, its ability to rotate the lens across 6 different axis with just one twist of the lens.
From an installation point of view this will prove invaluable to installers, saving them large amounts of time on setup and making it easy to install in spaces where normally a large heavy TV would be required.
Videos of the Fuji UST Laser Projector in action
Here are 3 different videos showing the new Fuji UST laser Projector in different locations.
The first fuji projector video demonstrates how easy it is with the remote control to move the projector's image across a wall from left to right or up and down. No complex installation needed.
The second video shows a pre-production version of the Fuji projector demonstrating how the swivel of the lens can change the image to almost anywhere in a 360 degree radius from floor to wall to ceiling.
Combine the 2 features above of lens shift and swivel lens along with corner correction and vertical and horizontal keystone correction it makes for very quick and easy projector installation.
Impressive Footprint - The unit is much smaller than you would expect and surprisingly ergonomic in design and wouldn't look out of place even in a consumer environment so we expect this to be very popular with museums, art galleries and large prestigious venues looking for an aesthetically pleasing projector with curved edges and cool greys.

At this years Bett Show 2019, there was a wealth of the usual big TV screens but what stood out from the crowd.
Casio ES Wireless Projectors Casio launched an idiot-proof projector for wireless screen mirroring from ipads, laptops or phones to the projector.
The new ES range from casio come pre-installed with all the hardware you need so it’s a simple case of connecting to the projector directly (or the router) and off you go. The beauty of the casio ES range is its simplicity with no setup and almost instant connection. Crucially there is no app to worry about you just find the projector from the wifi list of your PC or iPad and off you go.
This will really help the education world (and corporate world for that matter) by saving time in connecting devices.
The Casio ES range has been designed to work seamlessly with Windows and Apple for ipads especially so it should work perfectly with most equipment in schools. It will also mirror from Android as well (although an app is required).
The projectors look identical to the previous versions and the tiny dongles are still required however Casio claim there is less fuss in connection. Certainly on the demo we saw at Bett 2019 it worked quickly and painlessly.
Please contact us for more information and pricing at the Casio ES Range of Projectors due to launch imminently.

Bosch introduces projection module that allows virtual touchscreens on any surface
A surprising new entrant to the laser / micro projection world is Bosch who have launched Bosch Sensortech an interactive projection module for the retailer or smart home / internet of things (IoT) applications that allows for a virtual touchscreen on every surface.
The Bosch BML100PI module gives developers the ability to create interactive projection touchscreens on anything from ordinary shelves to appliances, kitchen cabinets, wardrobes and more.
The device generates a laser beam to create a focus-free image on any surface and then scans it line-by-line to detect any gesture or finger movements.
Its likely to be popular with shops with lots of smart shelves or any high street or for those who just want to bring organisation to their home lives as well as for warehouse or even in environmental technology.
