3M’s new MP7630 multimedia projector gives the district traveler an ultraportable projector with an above-average image, according to the company. Weighing in at just five pounds, the MP7630 is designed with digital light processing (DLP), a Texas Instruments technology that provides higher resolution and sharper contrast.
The MP7630’s projection of 700 (peak) ANSI lumens of on-screen brightness and SVGA (800 x 600 pixel) resolution ensure bright, clear color presentations. Its “intelligent image scaling” technology optimizes image quality, while its one-watt speaker adds auditory impact to presentations, 3M said. The projector has manual zoom and focus, and it also features seven different remote-controlled presentation tools: blank, laser pointer, freeze, timer, reveal, mouse emulation, and digital image magnification.
The MP7630 enables you to show presentations from your laptop’s DVD or CD-ROM drive. Additional multimedia adapters allow the projector to connect to camcorders, VCRs, DVDs, and a cable, antenna, or satellite connection. 3M also sells a variety of accessories for the projector, including a security cable to protect against theft, a carrying case, a hard shipping case, cable extension kits, replacement lamps, and a high-end display camera.
