  • 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).


    20150923_103547 20150923_103657

    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.
