Mitsibushi launches projector that stands alone
In a world where wireless is becoming more of a demand, Mitsibushi have launched the first ultra-short throw projector that doesn’t require a PC connection. Designed more specifically towards classrooms or small board rooms, the “cloud” projector connects to a network and then, with the help of a Bluetooth-enabled keyboard and mouse, call data can be accessed thanks to a built in, and very slim client device.
The WD390U-EST uses DLP technology alongside free apps SidePad and Wifi Doc (available on both Apple and Google Play), which helps continue the development of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) to present Powerpoint, Excel, Word and more from a tablet or smart phone.
Visually the projector is equally as impressive, as it can cover an 80in wide screen from less than 26in away. It has 3000 lumens of brightness and up to 6000 hours lamp life in low mode, proving it can pack a punch despite its small form. With the option of 3D and connection to third-party remote management such as Crestron or AMX, the “cloud” projector looks set to create a future-proof environment for education.
