Pico Genie M400 featured on Gadget Show TV: Outdoor Projection & Camping
- 06 Oct, 2014
In the show, Jason Bradbury and Jon Bentley showed off their talents by creating a cinema in a forest while camping using the tiny Pico Genie M400 LED Projector with a huge 10ft x 5.6ft inflatable screen.
The beauty of the Pico Genie M400 mini ultra-portable projector is its the only projector on the market capable of projecting for long periods on full brightness, as despite its small size and weight, it has a very powerful lightweight battery inside meaning it provides 300 lumens of brightness and can project up to 2 hours on eco mode (1 hour on full brightness 300 lumens).
The Pico Genie M400 is a very versatile portable device and is used from everything from business, personal use, travel, home cinema and gaming.
Jon Bentley who regularly reviews big home cinema screens said he was "pleased with the picture quality."
Jason Bradbury went on to say "it is a stunning picture and its also battery powered which is a really great feature, especially for the outdoors. You can load your stuff onto an SD card or USB so its quite versatile." One thing that took the team by surprise was despite what seemed like relatively low lumens the picture quality punched well above its weight, Jason commented that, "it looks splendid even when its not dark on a 10ft by 5.6 ft screen".
The inflatable air screen will actually go up to 40 foot and can be pumped up with an electric pump inside 15 mins and strapped to anything nearyby like a tree.
Jason said "The Airscreen is fantastic. I put it up in about 15 minutes and ratcheted it up to the trees. Im not beyond one of these in my back garden for the kids."
