The term â€œpocket projectorâ€ is relatively new. It applies to a class of extra-small projectors that can hypothetically fit in your pocket.
While this is technically true of some trendy projectors, itâ€™s never been convenient or practical to keep a projector in your pocket. Theyâ€™re too fragile. Their battery life is dismal. And, you canâ€™t use them without wires, speakers, and other external devices.
In practice, pocket projectors are not very portable at all.
But that might all change with the new pocket projector by Prima.
Prima Projector is a pocket projector that you can actually keep in your pocket and use on a daily basis. Whether itâ€™s a GIF on Reddit, a game of Fortnite, or a full-length movie, Prima can project it anywhere instantly and without wires, speakers, or any other devices.
The implication of true portable projection is enough to pique our interest. Imagine being liberated from the small screen and enjoying all of your content in 1080 HD at up to 200 cinematic inches?
Thatâ€™s the promise of Prima. But does it deliver? Letâ€™s find out.
Prima: Key Features
At first glance, Prima appears to be much more than your average portable projector. Fitted with a DLP projection engine from Texas Instruments, a quad-core CPU, a hard drive, and Android 7.1 OS, this gadget seems more like a smartphone/smart TV hybrid than a pocket media projector.
Take a look at some of its key features:
- 200-inch projection at 1080p
- Texas Instruments DLP projection engine
- 3D and 4K video support
- 200 ANSI lumens
- 3-hour battery life
- Built-in speakers
- Quad-core CPU
- 8 GB internal storage (download apps directly to Prima from Google Play)
- Android 7.1 OS
- Touchscreen controls
- Instant mirroring and casting
- Connect via WiFi, Bluetooth, Airplay, HDMI, USB, headphone jack, DC
Primaâ€™s list of specs is impressive, and many of its features are new. For example, the battery is stronger than most other projectors. And, 5G compatibility backed by a powerful processor all but eliminates the possibility of lag and delays.
But how does Prima perform?
Prima projects clear images and some of the most striking colors of any portable projector. This is attributed to unique DLP tech by Texas Instruments which allows Prima to project bigger and brighter than the competition.
Most pocket projectors larger than Prima max out at about 120 inches. Prima improves on that by a huge 80 inches and maintains 1080p the whole way. Thatâ€™s an extra 7 feet of screen size, leap-frogging the â€œbig screenâ€ distinction and landing firmly into the â€œcinematic.â€ Thereâ€™s nothing like taking a smartphone-sized gadget out of your pocket and turning the side of your house into a massive HD cinema. And for gaming? Talk about new levels of immersion.
One of the secrets to Primaâ€™s projection quality is its increased brightness. Prima is brighter than other projectors by as much as 5x, and this gives its colors and blacks more intensity. This is how Prima is able to maintain such a clear and vibrant image on such a large scale. Another perk is being able to project during the day and in well-lit rooms without a loss in quality.
Tired of having to boot up your projector and toggle a bunch of menus just to access a PowerPoint file or a movie? Prima is equipped with a next-gen RK3128 quad-core CPU and 5G WiFi connectivity for faster boot-ups and instant access to your apps and media.
Logging into Netflix, pulling up a video on YouTube, or accessing your presentation is as easy and fast as it would be on your smartphone. And navigation is easy too, thanks to the Android 7.1 operating system.
With power like this (plus 8 GB of internal storage), Prima is a lot more than a media player. Itâ€™s more like a smartphone with a built-in projector. You can download apps directly to the device, upload files, make calls, surf the web, and share content with friends and colleagues. You can do all of this with Prima aloneâ€”no need for a phone, computer, wires, or speakers.
It also works fast. If you want to show your friend a funny video, you can swipe Primaâ€™s touchscreen and it will instantly appear on the wall, floor, or the back of a bus seat. Why huddle around a tiny phone screen when itâ€™s just as easy to use Prima?
Itâ€™s also great for collaborating, as you can mirror and cast instantly. Switch devices and share screens all from Prima. Now, instead of viewing your projects from separate small screens, you can work together on a bigger one.
Primaâ€™s smartphone-esque feel and durable design may be the best features of this projector.
Prima looks and works just like your phone. In fact, itâ€™s the same size and weight as iPhone 8.
Once youâ€™ve opened the box, youâ€™re already comfortable putting it into your pocket. Itâ€™s like muscle memory. You wonâ€™t have to worry about damage, either (at least, not more than you would a smartphone). Prima is equipped with shock-resistant barriers and a sliding lens door to protect its sensitive parts. It also comes with a carrying pouch to protect the screen.
This level of portability and intuitive UX has never been seen in a pocket projector. Primaâ€™s design opens the doors to using projection in daily life. Itâ€™s not a stretch to imagine gamers casting mobile games on Prima instead of playing on a 4-inch screen. Or, showing a file to the boss by swiping Prima and projecting the image onto the office wall. With Primaâ€™s point-and-click projection, the possibilities are endless.
A Better Battery
Projection engines consumer battery power fast. Unfortunately, Prima hasnâ€™t been able to develop a battery that powers Prima as long as a smartphone. But, it has developed a better battery compared to other projectors.
Most projectors fizzle out after about 2 hours of playback. Prima can reliably deliver 3 hours. Breaking the 3-hour threshold is a big deal, too, as most movies are over 2 hours long. With other projectors, you wonâ€™t be able to finish a Star Wars movie before the lights go out. Prima can get you to the end of most movies.
Luckily, Prima works indefinitely when plugged in. If youâ€™re projecting on the go, 3 hours per day should be plenty for scrolling on the bus, sharing videos with friends, and catching an episode of The Office during your lunch break.
Prima combines a smartphone-style touch screen with a familiar Android interface to make it one of the most accessible devices in terms of controls. There are no vintage blue menus, knobs, or dials on Prima. You can access all of your content without looking at the device. Using the touchscreen is just like swiping and scrolling on your phone.
This makes it easy to project videos, memes, and presentations without skipping a beat.
All of your apps and files are displayed on a dashboard that resembles an Android smart TV. You can organize your content in any way you like and select it with the touchscreen.
If youâ€™re kicking back at home or presenting at work, Prima also includes a remote control for navigating from up to 10 feet away.
Connecting, casting, mirroring, and sharing is incredibly easy with Prima. It is compatible with any device, and most devices can be paired instantly and wirelessly.
Primaâ€™s WiFi, Bluetooth, and Airplay connectivity make for effortless mirroring and casting. It even has built-in software to facilitate mirroring on Android and Apple devices. This ensures you wonâ€™t have to deal with screen size distortion or discoloration when mirroring.
Prima isnâ€™t limited to wireless connectivity. You can connect to TVs, cameras, gaming consoles, and much more with a wireless or wired connection. Prima has an impressive amount of ports given its size. They include:
- 2x USB
- Headphone jack
- Micro SD
No matter where life brings you, youâ€™ll be able to connect to nearly any device without adapters and project in seconds.
