Optoma has introduced an ultra-portable ML750ST short throw WXGA (1280×800) one-chip DLP projector with LED lighting — aiming it for both home and commercial use — but it’s limited to 700 lumens. It’s priced at $550.
Weighing in at under one pound, the ML750ST offers all of the same features as its miniscule ML750 predecessor — plus short throw capabilities projecting a 100-inch diagonal image from only 68 inches away. The 3D-compatible ML750ST has the ability to display 3D content from any MHL-enabled mobile phone or tablet, as well as HDMI input to connect to laptops, PCs, games consoles or Blu-ray players. Microsoft Office, PDF, photo, video, audio and other files can also be accessed directly from built-in memory, a microSD card slot or USB connection. In addition, wireless connectivity can be leveraged via a WUSB Wi-Fi adapter, available for purchase separately.
