Favi's New Small Bright Business Projector

Favi's New Products Include Small Business Projector

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.
