Samsung SP-H03: 30 lumens palm-sized Pico Projector
Samsung introduced their first pico-projector, the SP-H03. Just 170g and coming in 63.5mm x 38.1mm x 63.5mm of size, this little giant is capable of WVGA (854×480) videos, 30 lumens, image size ranging from 9 to 80 inches (0.228 mt to 2.032 mt) and has 1GB of internal memory which can be expandable up to 16GB with a microSD card. What’s more, it supports AVI, MP4, ASF, MPG, RM, FLV, WMV video files and MP3, MP2, WAV, WMA, FLAC, APE, RA audio files as well as JPEG, PNG, BMP, GIF image files. However, not without the cons of 1W only speaker and 2-hour battery life.
It will be available next month for $300.
“With portable design, high quality projection, and built-in multimedia playback features, the SP-H03 is an expansion of Samsung’s expertise in LED technology and mobile productivity,” said Tom Grau, senior manager of projector marketing at Samsung Electronics Information Technology Division. “The H03’s robust and intuitive features make it an easy, efficient and affordable choice for everyone from tech-savvy travelers to mobile presenters, professionals and educators.”
The new ultra-portable SP-H03 offers a small, well-balanced industrial design that weighs only 6 oz. ., allowing it to easily fit into a pocket, backpack, purse or briefcase. The solid-state LEDs and DLP® technology heighten performance with a picture output of up to 80 inches, ensuring everyone enjoys the show.
The use of an energy-efficient LED light source also highlights Samsung’s continued dedication to creating eco-sensitive products. Designed to last for the life of the product, solid-state LEDs maintain their brightness and eliminate traditional lamp replacement, contributing to a more-affordable total cost of ownership.
EXCLUSIVE SAMSUNG DESIGN INNOVATIONS
Not only does the SP-H03 boast a computer-free experience, but it also allows users to project their content on-the-go via external memory or entertainment devices like USB storage devices, microSD memory cards or MP3 players. For added versatility, users can enjoy audio playback through the SP-H03’s integrated 1W speaker or utilize the output connectors for personal headphones or external speakers.
For business and education applications, Samsung’s built-in Document & Media Viewers enable PC-free projection of Microsoft® Office Suite (PowerPoint, Excel, Word) documents, Adobe® PDF, movie, image, and audio files, in their native file formats.
The SP-H03 will be available through Samsung authorized retailers, including Best Buy, beginning in June 2010 for $299.99 MSRP.
