Pico Projector

Definition - What does Pico Projector mean?

A pico projector is a handheld device that has all the characteristics of a projector, capable of displaying an image of up to 100 inches (254 cm). They are an excellent choice for mobility, low energy consumption and resolution as compared to large projectors. Pico projectors are quickly replacing older, immobile projectors and the market for pico projectors is rapidly growing. Types of pico projectors include standalone and media player pico projectors.

Pico projectors are also known as handheld projectors, pocket projectors or mobile projectors.

Techopedia explains Pico Projector

Pico projectors offer a small package and efficient design solution for content sharing and entertainment. They may come with or without a battery, in which case they must be connected to an external power source, such as a computer. A USB or A/V cable can provide pico projectors with power. Batteries can be chargeable or replaceable, depending on the model. Standalone pico projectors need an external source for data, as they do not have built-in memory and cannot display an image until another device is connected to stream a signal. Media player projectors are pico projectors that include a memory slot or have built-in memory.

Pico projectors are sometimes included as embedded hardware in mobile devices, such as cell phones, cameras or laptops.
