Pico, Tiny, Micro. It all means the same thing but these terms are not
usually associated with digital video projectors. Well now that technology
has advanced so far we are seeing projectors not much bigger than a
cigarette packet producing stunning images up to 80 inches in size.The term
Pico is defined as ‘one trillionth’ of something which is pretty small. So
Tiny and Micro probably cover it. So too does very small and that is

of the conventional lamp that is found in most other digital projectors.
LED technology has come along in leaps and bounds in the last 2 years with
a number of television and projector manufacturers offering sets with this
technology inside. Some newer pico projector models are using a laser as their light source to project images. For most
devices, the lamp life is 10,000 to 30,000 hours which is a considerable

with power cords and a projector in it. Just whip one of these Pico
Projectors out of your pocket and start projecting in a matter of minutes.
It will be interesting to see how far technology can go with these devices.
Who knows, one day they may replace the larger home theatre projectors that
we use in our home cinemas now. Wouldn’t that be nice.
