With today’s modern short-throw projectors, expensive, bulky devices, mounted from the ceiling, with assorted switches and wires for connecting devices are now obsolete. But, when Philips released their Screeneo 2.0 it was the size of a bulky picnic basket and cost over $2,000. The new Philips Screeneo U4 projector boasts a “huge screen without the hassle of a huge TV“ and a small-form, sleek design… plus for the next few days, consumers can purchase one for a not-so-huge price ($665), thanks to a special Philips Projection Indiegogo campaign.
Releasing in September, the Philips Screeneo U4 features 1080p full HD resolution, automatic image customization, automatic focus, dual Bluetooth 5.0 functionality, HDR10, cinema-tuned colors, and a 35” to 120” projection size. Ideal for small spaces, the short-throw technology has evolved to allow an 80” projected screen with just a 12” throw distance.
Most notable is the vast array of devices the projector interfaces with, including HDMI devices such as gaming consoles, Amazon FireTV, Roku, AppleTV, and Chromecast, USB-connected memory sticks and hard drives, Bluetooth devices, computer screencasting, and more. For such a small device, the Screeneo U4 includes an impressive sound system with two 15-watt speakers. This is the second multi-million dollar campaign Philips Projection has launched on the Indiegogo crowdfunding platform with a 45% discount perk available to customers, reducing the regular price of $1,230 to $665.
