Favi RIOLED-Q and RIOLED-V Pico Projectors

Favi RIOLED-QThe market for Pico Projectors appears to still be alive as manufacturer Favi has announced two new LED-based pico projectors for release sometime between late February and early March. The two projectors being released come to us under the names of the RIOLED-Q and the RIOLED-V.

The RIOLED-Q is a more business oriented pico projector. The RIOLED-Q is very bright with an 800x600 native resolution and a 50 lumens brightness, a first in the pico projector market (along with the Optoma PK301) to boast that output. The RIOLED-Q also has 2 built-in 3W speakers and digital keystone connection. As far as connectivity goes the RIOLED-Q has 1 A/V in, 1 VGA in and 1 USB connections. It has built-in memory as well as an SD/MMC card reader. The RIOLED-Q is powered via a battery or power adapter.

The RIOLED-V, counterpart to the RIOLED-Q, is a more consumer-based pico projector. The RIOLED-V has built-in WiFi and uses Linux to run multiple web applications like Video (YouTube), News (Yahoo News), Weather, Internet Radio, Photo (Flickr), e-mail and a web browser. Also included in the RIOLED-V is a built-in calendar and alarm clock. Connectivity wise the RIOLED-V has 1 USB, 1 A/V output and 1 headphone jack. This device is also powered via battery or power adapter and is controlled by either a remote control or by buttons on the unit. Already the RIOLED-V is being described as a hybrid netbook/media player/projector that fits in your pocket.

Favi isn't done there though as they have also announced a versatile portable projector entitled the RIOHD-LED2 which is aimed primarily at educational, business or home theater usage. The RIOHD-LED2 is 7"x6"x3" and weighs around 2.5 lbs. It has a rated 400 lumens output and is pretty bright for a small, portable projector. It has an LED lamp which has an expected life of around 20,000 hours and it ships with a remote control, power adapter and user manual. Input wise it has HDMI, YPbPr, S-Video, Composite A/V, headphone and VGA as well as 2 built-in speakers.

The RIOHD-LED2 is said to ship in early February under a $348 price tag which is early than the late February early march release date of the RIOLED-Q and RIOLED-V whose prices are still unknown.
