    Never run out of power again

    If you’re using a projector for business the last thing you want is not being able to see the image projected or not being able to have enough power to get you through that last presentation of the day so having the best battery life at 2 hours is a real bonus for business users or even those just wanting to watch a movie at 65 lumens without connecting to the mains. Overall the 3M MP220 is the best pico pocket projector available for brightness, quality resolution and extended battery life.

    Highest resolution and image quality in its class

    Combine the above with WSVGA resolution (best in class), a bright LED light source which allows projection in most meeting room environments for 20-30,000 hours, as well as instant on/off technology and it is clear the MP220 is one of the most useful projectors for travelling.

    Overall, the 3M MP220 LED projector is unbeatable for truly portable projection. In terms of brightness, image quality and battery life it is ideal for business users with presentations or photos/videos. Unlike many of its competitors the 3M is designed from the ground up to be used on battery (as well as mains) and provides higher brightness on battery than any other pico projector so you wont be faced with a dim performance.

  • Improving quality of powerpoint presentations on pocket projectors (from onboard memory)

    Powerpoint presentations can be projected from the onboard memory of a pocket projector by saving as jpg as we’ve reported on before. However we’ve been looking into other approaches in order to get the best results for business users other than the standard methods such as via AV, VGA or USB. Read on to find out more...

    One method is by creating a video of your powerpoint files using free software called EM Free Powerpoint Video Converter which is readily available online. This software makes it quick and easy to convert even for multiple files at once from not only ppt to jpg, bmp etc but also to video formats!

    Once converted, just save the video, e.g as a WMV or AVI, to the projector’s memory. You can then use the ppt video, simply pausing to stop/start the slides/video. Its also worth making your font sizes bigger and using a bolder black text to improve it even further.

    Alternatively you can even:
    - connect to a smartphone and use the composite cables supplied to playback direct from your phone OR
    - Use the VGA cable and a small notebook laptop for ultra portability to play ppt direct from the laptop

    The Screencast software is a good and very quick file conversion solution. You can download it here.

    Other software customers have also used Handbrake software as an alternative although this is not something we have tested ourselves.
