Royaltek launches a pico-projector, will develop a digital-TV enabled one soon
Taiwan's RoyalTek has released their first pico-projector, the RPJ-2000. It's a stand-alone projector (with no internal memory) that uses 3M's 2nd-generation LCoS engine. It's available now in Taiwan and in Europe (219 euro for the basic version). It got approval from Apple - being compatible with the iPhone and iPod (the connectivity kit costs 30 euro extra). It's also very quiet, as it uses Quanta's no-fan cooling tech. RoyalTek hopes to ship around 60,000 units next year - through their own brand, and through ODMs.
RoyalTek wants to develop 5 new pico-projectors in 2010. One of them will be a equipped with digital TV - just in time for the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup. They hope that football fans will buy it and be able to view the games anywhere, and on any surface.
