ViewSonic has launched a brand new ultraportable and energy efficient projector in the form of the PLED-W200 projector.

The manufacturer first unveiled and showcased its new PLED series of projectors at the recent ISE trade show in Netherlands, but the PLED-W200 is the first to become commercially available to consumers.

The small and convenient projector is an ideal solution for business people on the go who need to be able to pick up their projector in an instant and carry it with them to meetings and presentations. The PLED-W200 measures just 130 x 126 x 32 mm and weighs only 420 g, yet offers impressive brightness for its size, generating 250 lumens with brilliant colour quality.

The projector has all the handy connectivity options to cater for modern needs, including a built-in SD card reader and Microsoft Office/PDF viewer.

The wide format projector has a native 1280x800 WXGA resolution, a 16:9 aspect ratio and supports HD 720p to offer major flexibility. It also has instant power-on and power-off, which lets you start presenting immediately and then unplug the projector without waiting for it to cool down. The projector also has a 1.16:1 short throw ratio, which allows it to throw a 40-inch image from a distance of one metre.
