I have a couple little projectors and I’m not sure about them, they’re more of a novelty, at least they are for me. Sure I guess if you’re a business person and you’re doing presentations and such a portable projector might come in handy. I can see many circumstances where they would be very useful to the right person. I know my kids just think they’re great, they love to use mine and watch movies and such with it. So anyway, Genius has just introduced the BellaVision BV 200 which is a portable pico projector with a resolution of 800×600 and for the most part that’s not bad for presentation or business use. The price of the BV 200 is about $270 and that’s the MSRP so you can except to pay lower of course. It does come with a remote control and it has built-in stereo speakers and it even comes with a tripod and ceiling projection kit (whatever that is). You can play directly from memory or an SD card or your computer, camcorder or even smartphone.
Genius today announces its BellaVision portable pico projector – BV 200. This pocket-sized projector (150x 75x29mm) is the perfect choice for viewing movies, giving presentations or gaming when space is limited. BV 200 can display MS Office, PDF, audio and video files from its built-in memory/SD card as well as from a camcorder, PC or smartphone.
BV 200 is not only a useful tool for both business professionals making presentations but also for travellers wanting to enjoy movies while on-the-go and for those looking for a bigger screen for their home entertainment. This pico projector includes all the tools necessary to create a multimedia show or to project a presentation in 800×600 resolution with the option of stereo sound even in the smallest spaces such as small meeting rooms or hotel rooms.
The complementary tripod enables BV 200 to be effortlessly placed on any solid surface and optimized to project exactly at the preferred angle to a distance of up to 4 meters. Using the included ceiling projection kit, users can comfortably watch movies or play games while laying in bed. A remote control also comes included with BV 200.
