Syndiant’s Technology Featured in Philips PicoPix Pocket Projectors by Sagemcom


DALLAS – (November 1, 2010) –Syndiant, a leader in high resolution microdisplays for pocket projectors, announces that its SYL2041 with patented all-digital smart panel VueG8™ technology was implemented in Philips’ PicoPix pocket projectors, which were recently unveiled at IFA 2010 in Berlin. This new range of three products has been created by Sagemcom, a French high-technology group which operates on an international scale and is Philips' licensee for this product category.

The three Philips’ PicoPix projectors are:
         Philips Notebook pocket projector PPX 1020, which offers up to 20 lumens of brightness, can be easily connected to a PC via USB port.

         Philips Pocket projector PPX 1230 offers up to 30 lumens of brightness and can easily be connected to a wide range of handheld devices, such as digital cameras, mobile and smart phones, iPod/ iPad/ iPhone, etc.

         Philips Pocket projector PPX 1430 offers up to 30 lumens of brightness, and in addition to easily connecting to a wide range of mobile devices includes an integrated MP4 player. This pocket projector can also be used as a standalone device which retrieves its content from the internal 2GB memory or one of various different types of memory cards.

“We are very pleased with the strong interest and the positive feedback for our PicoPix pocket projector range at IFA,” said Nicolas Denis, Vice President, Director of Consumer Terminals Department at Sagemcom. “The high resolution microdisplay panel from Syndiant is making a believer out of consumers who are looking for high quality images from their pocket projectors.”

“With Syndiant’s exceptional resolution, color saturation and low cost, we are confident that we are providing the market with the right price and performance to enable consumers to enjoy a mobile large screen viewing experience– and Philips’ PicoPix by Sagemcom is certainly an excellent example of this coming to market,” said Mark Harward, CEO of Syndiant.
