  • Android Projectors: What does this mean? How do they work?

    What is an Android projector?

    An Android projector is a projector that runs Android software to power its operating system. Think of Android as a computer inside your projector allowing you to run programmes and interface as you would when using a PC.

    All projectors will have a form of operating system allowing you to alter various settings and set up the initial connection with your media outlet. Android projectors function in a similar way but have the added bonus of being able to run various applications, essentially turning your projector into its own media outlet.

    How does it work?

    The Android projector itself works in a similar way to your phone, once you have connected the device to the internet via Wi-Fi you can download various apps such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

    The ability to be able to use applications via the projector means that you don't have to connect it to your PC or other device in order to stream content. This also allows you total freedom with your projector and is why the Android OS is used in a lot of the portable projectors that are currently on the market.

    Common misconceptions

    There are a couple of common misconceptions that come with the use of Android software being used in a projector and we will answer them here:

    1. If you own an Android phone yourself it doesn't need to be on the same version as the projector in order to work with it. Most projectors will use older versions of Android as they don't need to be constantly updated unlike mobile phones.
    2. If you own an iPhone it will still be able to work with the projector, this is normally done via screen mirroring over Wi-Fi. The operating systems not being the same doesn't have a bearing on the connectivity.

    Where can I get one?

  • Benefits of LED projectors

    Why choose LED projectors? Here are just some of the excellent benefits of LED micro projectors...

    - No lamps – LED light source means there are no bulbs to replace in these projectors so you save a fortune on bulb replacements which can be up to £400 every year
    - Continual Optimum Resolution – lamp projectors can often experience deterioration in colour, brightness from day 1 whereas LED projectors ensure even several thousand hours usage you’re still getting crisp bright images
    - No Maintenance – there are no maintenance costs on LED projectors and no dust filters to replace
    - Greener product – there is no mercury inside LED projectors which means these products are easier to dispose of and are much more environmentally friendly
    - Instant on/off – no hanging around for the bulb to warm up or cool down and no risk of damaging the “bulb“ when turning off too quickly so ideal if travelling
    - No colour or image degradation - the quality of image projected from a bulb projector will degrade from the first time it is used whereas LED gives consistently high quality from the first day until the last day you use the projector.
    - Extra Features – even entry level LED projectors generally have a huge array of features not usually available on lamp projectors such as:

    • Battery power for Pico and some Palm sized units so you can use anywhere
    • Use as a stand alone device: with onboard memory there is no need to connect to any other device, just project straight from the projectors own memory, USB or SD card
    • Ultra portability: ultra light weight and portable with most pico projectors being the size and weight of a mobile/cell phone
    • Connect to smartphones, DVDs, TV’s, games consoles
    • Use the latest connection with HDMI
    • No cables or wires: Some projectors now use WiFi for streaming presentations, images, some video and more...
