Professional pocket projector features
Designed with professionals in mind, the 3M pocket projector includes 1 GB internal memory, a micro SD card slot and a USB input for transferring files from a laptop or netbook, eliminating the necessity of a pass-through device and allowing entire presentations to be pre-loaded onto the projector itself. The 3M MPro150 pocket projector supports Microsoft Office applications (Word, Power Point and Excel), as well as Adobe PDF, photos and video, allowing the user to project images up to 50-inches at 15 lumens brightness in either the boardroom or break room. En route to that important presentation, business professionals can relax with their favorite tunes, courtesy the 3M MPro150’s integrated MP3 player and headphone jack. And, when it’s time to share with colleagues, a pair of integrated stereo speakers turn the MPro150 into a theater-on-the-go.
Optional accessories for the 3M pocket projector
Additional features include an integrated flip stand, tripod and a variety of input cables, which make the pocket projector ready to use “out-of-the-box” with a wide range of today’s most popular video output gadgets. Available optional accessories include an adapter cable for Apple products, component video cable and car charger.
