Enjoy amazing sound quality when watching movies or listening to music with the new breed of portable speaker projectors! With projectors rapidly progressing in the visual department they have now started improving on the sound with high quality speakers being introduced into their models.
The key differentiator with these new portable projectors is that they are much more capable of handling bass. This is really evident as soon as you pick up the projector, they feel really solid but not ultimately weighty so that they are still ultra portable.
Don't think just because it has Android on board that it won't connect to Apple devices. These projectors feature a screen mirroring function allowing you to connect to various devices such as IOS and Android Phones. Android on board gives the ability to use the projector like a computer which you can download apps directly to the projector.

The New Qumi Q38 HD smart Projector has just landed in stock and because it offers Full HD 1080p, android v6.0 and an inbuilt 2 hour battery we don't expect it to stay in stock long!

With a massive 10,000:1 contrast ratio the Q38 DLP LED projector can pick out the rich details in your favourite films at levels previously reserved for higher end DLP projectors. It's not just in movies where the Q38 excels, the high resolution, brightness, and contrast ratio all combine to provide a crisp viewing experience for presentations, making it an ideal business companion. The Qumi Q38 can also connect to multiple Bluetooth devices at once for improved functionality, e.g. a keyboard and a speaker.
Boasting an impressive operating system with its Android V6.0 the Qumi Q38 LED projector can easily download and access a huge library of current apps, expanding it's capabilities depending on your preferred use. Why not use it for projection mapping, star gazing maps, gaming, and more?

Projectors are not just useful for business or home cinema these days – they have an endless list of uses and applications! Here are 10 of the more innovative uses of projectors and LED displays we’ve seen in the last few weeks ranging from projecting recipes from a barcode in the kitchen to hiding projectors in places to create works of art, a snazzy lounge or a 4k perfect home cinema!
Read on for our countdown of ten of the best...
#1. Tasty Recipes
Want to get tasty recipes for your food? A new gesture controlled pico projector concept hides inside a lamp in the kitchen. Just scan the barcode and it projects the recipe on the kitchen worktop.
#2. Hiding in the Lounge
Well we thought the Screeneo 2 was amazing but the Sony 4k ultra short throw home cinema takes your lounge to a whole new level - and it hides inside a stylish cabinet so you won't even know it's there. New model coming soon.
#3. The (Pico) Genie is in the Lamp
It's amazing what you can fit inside a light these days to create interesting displays in the home or office or just as pieces of art. Pico projectors have got really small now and ultra bright so your applications are endless.
#4. Outdoor Displays
Need a snazzy TV to work outdoors whether you need it for the yacht or to accompany the hot tub? These sleek outdoor TVs won't look out of place on a Sunseeker although you might need to sit down before you get the price so consider a projector screen that folds away if you need a more cost friendly alternative with a bigger image!
#5. Feature Walls
Your cubby holes in the house or office will never look so good with these LED screens brightening up the office, bar, museum or even the lounge!
#6. Serve Up a Treat in the Bar
Here's a great way to spice up the average bar with this LED projection with edge mapping to link the images together. Great for shopfitters and perfect for marketeers wanting to run ads to encourage drinking/eating or for all those artists out there looking to make a good artistic impression behind their bar
#7. Projection Mapping
Projection mapping is the buzz word at the moment and Hitachi shows this in action with their pool table which triggers a light show each time you bang that ball in the pocket
#8 Amazing Light Shows
Waterfall Projection on a curve is eye popping. Its a bit like watching the Northern Lights and you simply cant take your eyes off these displays. Need to project onto a curved surface? Just call us on 0845 121 8800 and we can help create the perfect projection display.
Need your satnav to get around? It’s commonplace these days but it can be distracting to keep looking down to your dashboard, especially in the winter months when you can face fog and ice! Projection can be used to project a Heads Up Display (HUD) of your dashboard directly onto a part of your windscreen, giving you your dashboard and satnav directions while letting you keep your eyes on the road.
#10. Amazing Artworks
See these amazing large scale artworks from Projection Artworks. Transform a space of any size – from a tiny corner to whole building exteriors – into an amazing show of light and sound.
The biggest technology show in the UK's education sector is just around the corner and we're delighted to say we'll be attending the BETT Show for the fourth straight year. If you're attending, come and say hi - we'll be in Hall 15, at stand F354. Our focus this year is on great projector deals and portable interactivity, which could revolutionise the way you think about your interactive whiteboard. We're also have deals on large format displays (LFDs), new short throw portable projectors and wireless portable LED projectors with Android interfaces.
If you've ever wanted a large format interactive whiteboard you can fit in your bag and set up in minutes, you will definitely want to read our sneak preview of what we'll be showing at BETT!
Interactive (Portable) Whiteboards & Accessories
We have two products that will be released in the very near future that will let you turn any flat surface into a touch-sensitive interactive whiteboard up to 120" in size!
The first to be released is the Acer Smart Touch Kit, which is compatible with a number of Acer projectors (U5520B, U5320W, U5220, S1383WHne (pictured above), S1283Hne, S1283e). It's a dongle that fits onto the projector, along with an infrared sensor that you put on your projection surface, but there are a lot of features packed into this device! Although the projectors themselves are not portable the Smart Touch Kit turns any flat surface into a whiteboard with a 10-point touch screen, meaning large groups can all use it at the same time. It's also finger touch compatible, so you don't need to buy a load of expensive accessories to use it.
Ultra Short Throw Large Format Displays
Inspire students, parents and staff alike with large dynamic digital displays in your reception area, corridors, staff room, dining hall or classrooms. The real unique feature is how close this projector can sit to the wall and still be able to project a huge 120" image on any wall (even a coloured wall) so you are maximising space in small areas.
The Philips Screeneo 2.0 offers a Full HD display and 2000 lumens. Since the Screeneo sits so close to your projection surface, those 2000 lumens go much further, giving you an ultra bright display that can be seen in any light conditions. It features automatic colour correction technology, meaning you can even project onto most coloured walls without having to worry about image quality!
Projectors are evolving beyond simply being pass through devices - the new breed of projectors have WiFi, inbuilt Android OS (that works with Apple products too!) and onboard memory so you can save files and apps onto the projector. This means you don't even need a PC or laptop to project from, just set up and go! What's more, projectors such as the Pico Genie M550 Plus and the Qumi Q3 Plus (pictured below) which we'll be exhibiting at BETT, have long battery lives (the M550 Plus has up to 3 hours) so you can take a whole lesson without a single wire in sight!
Also at the show will be wireless dongles that turn any projector into a wireless projector that connect to your iPad, android device or laptop (Win 7 and 8).
The Vivitek Qumi Q6 will also be at the show along with its bigger brother the Qumi Q7 with wireless dongle.
Full HD Portable LED Projector: Vivitek Qumi Q8
The long awaited, record-breaking Qumi Q8 will also be available to pre-order at the show. Its tiny size defies belief and it offers an amazing 1000 lumens and is the smallest Full HD (1080p) LED projector in the world.
Ultra Portable Short Throw Projectors
The Acer K138ST is the latest in ultra portable short throw projection so you can get a bigger image close up to the wall. If you are tight on space in your classroom then short throw projection is a must! The K138ST benefits from an 800 lumen LED light source and offers phenomenal value, meaning it is a quality budget option.

If you're looking for an affordable portable HD LED projector this Christmas (or maybe you're hoping for one to appear under the tree!), there are two excellent options on the market that can do it all. Whether you're looking to give the gift of an unbeatable home cinema set up or you want an ultra-portable solution for business presentations, Vivitek's Qumi Q3 Plus and Pico Genie's M550 Plus should be on your radar. But how do they stack up against one another?
When you're after a truly portable projector for the festive season, you really want something with a lengthy battery life so you can take it anywhere and set up without having to worry about power. The Q3 Plus boasts an impressive 2 hour battery life with 8,000 mAh at 500 Lumens, which means it's perfect for even the lengthiest presentation or meeting. The M550 Plus goes one step further though, with a mighty 3 hour battery life and 13,500 mAh (that's three episodes of Game Of Thrones!), putting it in a class of its own when compared with any other portable projector on the market. So both projectors are great to handle any meeting, lecture, presentation or just binge watching loads of TV/Movies.
The other key factor to consider when taking your projector out and about is brightness (or lumens) as you never know what kind of light conditions you'll be projecting in. Blackout curtains are always nice but they're not always available, which is why both of these projectors pack a great spec in terms of brightness, resolution and contrast. Coupled with incredible DLP chip systems they provide a clear image even in brightly-lit or sunlit rooms.
The Q3 Plus clocks in at 500 Lumens, which is usually more than enough to project a crisp HD image in normal light conditions up to 150 inches in size, making it ideal for classrooms or business meetings. It also has a high contrast ratio of 5000:1 which will really help your colours pop!
The M550 Plus has an impressive 650 Lumens, really making it the ultimate all-rounder that can be used anywhere, anytime for anything. Also, it can project up to a 200 inch image, big enough for any purpose which puts the M550 Plus top of its class in its price bracket!
Shorter Throw Projection
The M550 Plus has a trick up its sleeve when it comes to projecting a clear image: it's a shorter throw projector meaning you can get a much bigger image even when it sits close to your wall or screen (or whatever you're projecting onto).
At Christmas time, your living room can become a little crowded, so you may not always have 5 metres of clear space to project a big image. The M550 Plus doesn't need anywhere near as much space to project a large, clear image, so it's the much more practical option for everyday use particularly when you're projecting in a busy front room or meeting room!
Check out the video below to see this in action.
A good sound system can be just as important as a clear image, whether you want a booming home cinema setup or an effective presentation tool. The Q3 Plus has onboard 2w speakers, meaning it sounds great in any environment. The M550 Plus goes one step further with its onboard 3w speakers. Both projectors offer wireless audio connectivity to external speakers but the M550 Plus also has a 3.5mm jack and supports 2.0 Stereo sound so you can hook it up to external sound systems for wireless or wired sound with amazing clarity.
Ease of Use and Access
So, both projectors offer a host of amazing features, but how easy are they to use?
Both projectors are a doddle thanks to their Android OS, and The Q3 Plus comes with a remote control and you can download apps for iOS and Android mirroring, meaning you can mirror your smart devices onto a huge screen.
However, if you need to access lots of files and apps quickly, the M550 Plus has a bit of a party piece for you: it comes with a wireless keyboard as well as a remote, so it couldn't be easier to flick through important files or search for your favourite TV shows on apps like Netflix, which comes pre-installed on both devices!
If that wasn't enough, the M550 Plus also has wireless mirroring for iOS and Android straight out of the box, making it one of the most easy-to-use projectors on the market today.
What's In The Box
With the Q3 Plus, you get;
A Qumi Q3 Plus projector, remote control, power lead, HDMI cable
Both of these projectors have every feature you could want from a portable projector, and there's a lot to love about both of them. They both have Android OS and 8GB of storage for saving files or downloading apps. They also both offer a range of audio and visual wireless connectivity options.
The Q3 Plus is an amazing portable projector that packs an incredible punch for a device just 28mm thick. At just £429 inc VAT, it's also the ideal option for anyone looking for a versatile and highly portable projector on a budget. It's very bright at 500 Lumens, offers a wealth of connectivity options and has 8GB of storage for preloading files and apps onto it for PC-free viewing, while its 2-hour battery life means you can watch most films or a football match on it without worrying about where the plug socket is. You can even wirelessly hook it up to your sound system to create that big-screen cinema feel at home in your living room.
The M550 Plus is a little more at £599.99 inc VAT, but for that extra money you get a world leader in portable projectors that is the ultimate in flexibility, ease of use and is future-proofed and able to work with any device, anytime, anywhere. Never worry about having enough space in your living room again with its shorter throw projection, allowing you to get a huge screen just a couple of feet away from your screen. It's bright enough for almost anywhere at 650 Lumens, has 8GB of storage which you can use to store files (and get to them quicker than before using the keyboard) and its 3-hour battery life means you can even watch Lord Of The Rings on it without hooking it up to the power (well, almost!). It offers an amazing range of features which makes it fit for any purpose, including a great wireless keyboard& mouse for easy browsing, and it comes with wireless mirroring for iOS and Android as standard, so there's no need to download any mirroring apps to use it with your smart devices.
Take a look at the video below to see all the great features of both projectors in action!
