Sony’s Portable Ultra Short Throw Projector, first shown at the IFA show in 2015, is breaking the conventional law that states: all projectors need to be oversized. The LSPX-P1 projector is perfect for someone wanting to a portable space-saving alternative to the traditional wall hanging flat screen. If apartment/condo space is an issue, Sony’s little projector may be the solution.
Small enough to hold in one hand, viewers have the option of projection images that range from 22 to 80 inches. Since it’s a short-throw, you can position Sony’s LSPX-P1 right next to the projector surface – whether that be a nearby wall or a piece of paper on your desk. With a diplsay resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, you avoid the telltale sign of poor image quality: visible pixels. Instead, feedback has been positive around the image quality, especially in dimly lit settings.
With its compact design and its high quality, premium finished materials, Sony’s LSPX seamlessly integrates into the home. In other words, it’s not an eyesore. If you’ve ever had the pleasure of watching a movie on a traditional projector, you’ve experienced long start up times and loud cooling fans. Thankfully, Sony’s short-throw was designed specifically to reduce fan noise and at the same time, the proximity sensor turns the projector on when it senses your smartphone nearby. It also turns it off when you’re out of range.
From streaming shows on Netflix to watching new releases on Blue-ray, Sony’s portable projector is a wireless unit that connects to your home’s Wi-Fi. If you’re the Magellan-type that travels for either work or leisure, the LSPX is small enough to tuck into a suitcase. If your hotel or Airbnb has Wi-Fi and a wall, floor or ceiling – you instantly have a mini-home entertainment system.
With two 0.98” Bass Reflex built-in speakers powered by xLoud technology, you’re able to turn up the volume without compromising sound quality. Since Sony’s built-in speakers are designed to pick up powerful low frequencies, connecting to a receiver for sound quality is not really necessary.
Finally, the Sony LSPX-P1 comes with a companion app allowing users to preset hologram-like images, such as current time, latest weather, and image galleries onto a nearby projection surface. The app also lets the user manage the smart controller whether it’s adjusting volume or switching between streaming devices.
