The ViewSonic M1 Pro projector has been launched. The device can throw 720p HD images up to 100-in (~254 cm) wide. The portable device is compact and weighs 33.5 oz (~950 g). You can cast content to the gadget from your smartphone and control the projector using the ViewSonic app.

ViewSonic has unveiled the M1 Pro projector, capable of producing 720p HD images. The device has a LED light source with a maximum brightness of 600 lumens, which is expected to last up to 30,000 hours. The projector has a short throw ratio of 1.07, meaning it can deliver a 100-in (~254 cm) wide picture 8.2 ft (~2.5 m) from the wall. The ViewSonic projector produces true-to-life colors, with a 125% Rec.709 color gamut. 

You can perfect the image for an even projection using vertical and horizontal keystone and four corner adjustment tools. An integrated battery provides two hours of play time on a single charge; you can recharge the power pack via USB-C from a wall outlet or power station. Plus, two built-in 3W Harman Kardon speakers provide an immersive sound experience. You can connect to the device via various ports, Bluetooth, or wireless screen mirroring tools. You can control the projector remotely via the ViewSonic vCastSender app.

The M1 Pro has a patented 3-in-1 stand, allowing you to project anywhere within 360 degrees of the device. When you swivel the stand, the projector automatically turns on; by reversing the motion and replacing the lens cover, the gadget will power down. The flexible stand can also protect the projector when it is being transported. The palm-sized device measures 5.5 x 7.2 x 2.4-in (~140 x 182 x 62 mm) and weighs 33.5 oz (~950 g), making it highly portable. In the UK, the ViewSonic M1 Pro projector is available for £632 (~US$699); the US MSRP for the device is unclear.
