Best Uses

Pico projectors have simplified mobile presentation. Nowadays, you can stick a pico in your pocket and take it wherever you need to go, leaving everything else behind--laptop, cables, power adapter. However, pico projectors also introduce a new problem: what do you use for a screen? The new Pico Screen from Da-Lite solves the problem.

The Pico Screen is a portable screen designed for use with small projectors. It uses a high-gain material to boost brightness, which is a great way to make your pico projector's picture pop. The compact, collapsible design makes it small and easy to transport while maximizing available screen area. Selling for less than $100, the Pico Screen is a great accessory for any small presentation projector. Moreover, it is the perfect tool for intimate one-on-one presentations, which in this era of ever-bigger, ever-brighter projectors have become a lost art.

Applications / Best Uses

A presentation is not always a large group affair. Sometimes, you are talking to just one or two people. This used to be done with binders and flip-cards, but pico projectors are a smart, high-tech way to create the same effect. With a pico projector and the Da-Lite Pico Screen, you can create the perfect presentation on someone's desk, where they are most comfortable. From a meeting with the company president to a simple tutoring session with a student, the Pico Screen makes these small presentations more manageable.

From a technical standpoint, the value of the Pico Screen is guaranteed consistency. Let's say you arrive at a client's office only to find the meeting area has dark blue walls. Your little pico projector's ten lumen output leaves you in a pinch. The Pico Screen guarantees that you will always have a bright purpose-built presentation surface available, which is an absolute must if you are using a pico projector.

The Pico Screen weighs 4.5 pounds, about as much as a portable projector. The case is solidly built to prevent damage without adding too much bulk; the whole apparatus could likely be tucked into a large briefcase or laptop bag. The included shoulder bag is lightweight and functional, but some folks won't want to have the screen slung over their shoulder all the time.

The article is very informative and easy to understand. I think it should be a hit with our dealers that service college universities. We have a dealer that switched to Draper and this will be a good tool to get their business back.
