Brookstone Big Shot Projector

720P Ultra Short Throw (UST) Projector
Calculate Throw Distance

From Brookstone —   Get rid of your TV, clear a space on the wall, and set up a Big Shot projector - you'll never want an old-school TV again! This ultra short-throw smart projector only needs to be 15 inches away from the wall to project a 42-inch image, and if you have the space to keep it 22 inches from the wall, you'll enjoy an incredible 100-inch image! With its built-in Android operating system, Big Shot lets you download your favorite apps and stream content directly from the projector... or you can connect it to your phone, tablet, or computer using Wi-Fi or the 3 HDMI compatible ports (we even included a cable for you to use). An integrated JBL speaker fills your room with awesomely powerful sound, and can even be used as a standalone Bluetooth speaker whenever you want to have a dance party (or just stream some music while you do chores).

ANSI LUMENS  is the most commonly accepted industry standard brightness measurement. The ANSI lumen rating measures the brightest white that a projector can produce by averaging nine light meter measurements taken across the projected image.
