If you have an iPhone or other iOS device, you have probably wanted on more than on occasion to shoot some of the content you have on that smartphone onto a much larger screen. You can put the content onto the TV in your home with an AV cable or a speaker dock, but it you want a really big image, a projector is what you need.
Epson unveiled two low-end new projectors today – the MegaPlex MG-850HD and the MG-50 each offer an integrated iPhone and iPad dock on the back. Both of the new projectors share very similar features. The only real difference is that the MG-850HD has 720p resolution and the MG-50 only offers 540p. Both of the projectors are bright, with the 850HD offering 2,800 lumens of brightness and the MG-50 with 2,200 lumens, projecting a 100-inch image without a problem. Both of the new projectors use 3-chip LCD technology, dual 10W speaker and have HDMI and VGA ports in addition to handling video direct from docked iOS devices.
The MG-850HD will sell for $799 (USD) and the MG-50 will sell for $699 starting later this month.
