Sony Portable Ultra Short Throw Projector Unveiled


Sony Portable Ultra Short Throw Projector UnveiledA couple of years ago at CES 2014, Sony unveiled an ultra short throw projector for the home. It was able to output 4K resolution with a projected screen of 147-inches. If this setup seems a bit excessive and expensive, you might be pleased to learn that Sony has a cheaper solution for you in the form of the Portable Ultra Short Throw Projector.


As the name implies, this is a smaller version of the projector Sony unveiled a couple of years ago. It is also more portable, although the downside is that its resolution and projected screen size isn’t as big as its big brother. However if a screen size of anywhere between 22-80 inches and a resolution of 1366×768 is good enough for you, then this might be worth checking out.
The device is powered by a battery and can last as long as 2 hours on a single charge. It measures 3.19-inches by 5.16-inches by 5.16-inches and has 100 lumens. There is also HDMI input if you’d prefer a wired connection, but otherwise you could stream wirelessly via Bluetooth connectivity.
It also looks pretty stylish and minimalist, perfect for a discreet living room setup. It is expected to make its way to the US by the summer, although it will be launching in Japan first come 13th February for ¥93,000, which is about $800 converted. We’re not sure if it will share the same price in the US, but we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled.
