Minneapolis-based electronics company Miroir has released the latest of its portable projector line, the Ultra Pro Projector M631, which has been designed for use with iPhone, iPad, MacBook and Apple TV. Priced at $650, the compact PJ comes in at under 2lbs in weight, includes motorized focus and auto keystone correction (+/- 30 degrees), and a “long-lasting” LED light source. Its lithium ion battery allows for up to two hours of unplugged projection time, and the connection panel boasts a USB port which can charge both iPhones and iPads.
As well as being promoted as a classroom device, Miroir says the M631 is ideal for watching movies on the go, and the maximum screen size possible from the small 9.5-inch wide beamer is claimed to be 120 inches. You can also input 4K sources via HDMI or USB-C.
The Miroir device is not going to blow anyone away with black levels or color accuracy, and the company even goes so far as to say that you can improve on gamer lag times in the lamp-based 1080p similarly-priced range, but the key message here is the unit’s ease of use, portability and maintenance-free operation. For example, the light source itself should even last out the life of the projector.
“Apple devices make up a significant portion of the market for portable business and entertainment peripherals like Miroir projectors,” said Richard Erickson, principal for Miroir USA. “With the Miroir Ultra Pro, HD video projection is possible anywhere, whether it’s a business setting or a slumber party.”
The Miroir Ultra Pro Projector M631 is available from Apple online or from some selected Apple stores.
