Pico projectors are projected to be all the rage this year and Favi Entertainment is jumping right in with the announcement of three new projectors: two LED-based pico projectors and another one that is said to be large than a pico but smaller than a standard projector.
The Favi RIOLED-Q is being called a "bright business projector" by PC Magazine. It has a native 800 x 600 resolution and is only the second pico projector (the Optoma PK301 is the first) to have a brightness of 50 lumens. It also includes a SM/MMC card reader and built-in memory. Other features include two built-in speakers, digital keystone correction, A/V in, VGA-in, USB connections and patter via both battery and adapter.
The other pico, aimed at consumers, is the Favi RIOLED-V. Favi describes it as pico projector/media player/netbook hybrid that "fits in your pocket." It uses Linux for web apps such as YouTube, Flickr, Picasas, Yahoo News RSS, weather, email, internet and web browser. It has a built-in calendar and alarm clock, as well as an SM/MMC card reader and built-in memory. It operates via remote control or by buttons and connections include USB, A/V output, and headphones.
The RIOHD-LED2 isn't a pico projector but it is fairly small and is said to be great for educational, business or home theater use. It is 7 x 6 x 3 inches and weighs about 2.5 pounds, making it bigger than a mini projector but smaller than a standard portable projector. It has a brightness of 400 lumens (pretty bright for its size) and the LED lamp is said to last around 20,000 hours. It comes with a remote control, power adapter and user guide, and inputs include HDMI, YPbPr, S-Video, Composite A/V, Heapone, and VGA. It also has built-in speakers.
The RIOHD-LED2 is due out in February and should cost around $348. Prices for both pico projectors have not been announced, but they are expected to ship in late February or March.
