Luminus’ LEDs power Aiptek PocketCinema V50 projector

At this week’s 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas (6–9 January), Luminus Devices Inc of Billerica, MA, USA, which develops and manufactures big-chip PhlatLight (photonic lattice) LEDs for illumination applications, announced that it is powering Aiptek Inc’s new PocketCinema V50 Projector (one of the world’s smallest projectors, enabling instant projection anywhere for business presentations, photo sharing with family and friends, and gaming).

The PocketCinema V50 Projector achieves sharp, rich image quality by combining DLP (Digital Light Projection) optical technology with Luminus’ SBT-16 LED pico-projection chipset, which is designed specifically for hand-held projectors that use micro-displays of 0.2–0.45” with individual red, green and blue LEDs.

The V50’s 848 x 480 (WVGA) resolution enables image projection up to 85 inches from iPods, digital cameras, camcorders, mobile phones, PCs or notebooks and gaming consoles. The built-in reader is compatible with an extensive list of business and multimedia file formats, including 720p high-definition video, allowing immediate projection of presentations or movies without having to convert files. The V50 also offers a battery life of up to 2 hours.

“The improved image resolution and built-in functionality to make the projector compatible with wireless devices improves the viewing experience because they are easy-to-use by consumers and affordable,” reckons Julie Lin, Aiptek's senior manager, marketing & sales.

“The V50 is one the world’s most versatile pocket projection systems, making it ideal for business presentations and on-the-go gaming and picture and video sharing,” says Stephane Bellosguardo, Luminus Devices’ director of product marketing, display business group. “Luminus’ SBT-16 LEDs are ideally suited for palm-size projectors such as Aiptek’s V50, providing a high brightness level as well as high efficiency to maximize battery life,” he claims.

Luminus is demonstrating the new Aiptek PocketCinema V50 at CES in the Central Tower, Suite #450 at the Las Vegas Hilton.
