Kickstand Portable Projector
The Kickstand is a portable LED DLP projector with a unique form factor.
The projector is 8.0 inches wide by 11.0 inches tall by 2.0 inches thick. The projector housing is captured within a molded plastic frame with an anodized aluminum band. An integrated support leg un-folds from the aluminum frame
to form the “Kickstand” feature.
The projector housing is injection molded plastic with a soft touch finish. The
projector housing pivots around a central axis that allows for both storage and angular adjustment. When closed all the connectors and controls are hidden by the surrounding frame. Once the body pivots into the use position, the integrated remote control/lens cover can be removed from its cradle. HDMI and USB connections are easily accessed along the back panel. The dual speakers and a focus control are located on the side panels.
The projector utilizes an LED DLP light engine that delivers a WXGA 1280 X 800 wide screen image at 720 p. The Kickstand can project a 9-inch image at 1 foot up to a 90-inch image at 10 feet. The benefits of LED are:
• Smaller Size
• Low Power Consumption
• 20,000 Hours of Use compared to 1000 Hours for a Halogen Bulb
• Shock Resistant
• Light Efficient
• Fast Start Up Time
• Less Heat
Anyone who wants to project a large, high quality image with a small, sleek projector can be amazed by the Kickstand. It's perfect for business travelers, tech enthusiasts, urban dwellers, presenters and gamers. Any business professional can easily fit the Kickstand in their briefcase to bring along to an important meeting or business trip.
