Being able to watch TV shows or movies away from home is easily possible using a smartphone, tablet, or laptop. But using one of those devices means compromising on screen size, audio quality, and limits how many people can sit together and enjoy the show. Anker aims to fix that problem with a new range of portable projectors being offered under the Nebula brand.
The first of these projectors is called the Nebula Mars. Anker is touting it as the "world's first portable cinema with theater-grade picture and sound." It measures just 5-by-7-by-5 inches, weighs 4.2 pounds, and can project a screen size of between 40 and 300-inches with a 10,000:1 contrast ratio and automatic focus. Brightness is rated at up to 3,000 lumens.
The true resolution of the display is 1,280-by-800, but 4K is supported. Audio is provided by two internal JBL speakers, each of which is rated at 10 watts. As for power, it includes a 19,500mAh battery offering three hours of playback before a recharge is required.
