HOUSTON, October 5, 2021 / PRNewswire-PRWeb / – Today, Arovia launched Splay, an expandable screen and ultra-short throw pico projector in one, on Kickstarter. The 24.5-inch FHD portable display expands and folds in seconds and converts into a projector. Splay is available for the super early bird price of $ 649 (MSRP: $ 1299).
Splay quickly goes from the largest portable screen on the market to ultra short throw projector mode, while folding to the size of a book, weighing just 2.5 pounds. It’s made from patented technology and is the perfect companion for office workers, moviegoers, gamers, photographers and videographers, travelers, medical workers, disaster relief workers, and more Again.
“We’re excited to launch the world’s largest portable display and the world’s only 2-in-1 display and projector,” said CEO and co-founder Alexander wesley. “We have worked extremely hard to bring something unique to the market and to our funders. With our patented technology and multiple features, we think this is something people will love.”
In display mode, Splay has a battery life of four hours on a single charge and can also double as a power bank. It has a 24.5 “FHD screen size with a bright 800 nits screen with 1920 x 1080 FHD quality. Splay easily connects to phone, tablet or laptop via HDMI or wireless adapter. (eg Chromecast, Apple TV) The space-saving screen and projector also includes powerful and loud speakers for an immersive experience.
In less than a minute, users can remove display technology, press a button to flip the image, and start projecting on a wall to project an 80 “FHD image from within two feet of distance. Projector mode offers Full HD resolution, with a brightness of 1920 x 1080 high resolution screen, screen size up to 80 “and throw ratio of 0.39, which makes it perfect for use in small spaces. It is the shortest throw ratio (focal length) projection screen of all similar portable projectors weighing less than five pounds.
While traditional projection screens are made from vinyl or plasticizer that wrinkle when folded, Splay is the only screen that can bend and extend in all directions without permanently wrinkling. While the rollable or foldable OLED can only roll or fold in one direction. Splay is the only fully flexible and high quality patented projection screen on the market.
Splay is a significantly improved version of SPUD, released by Arovia in 2016. Splay offers higher resolution, significantly increased brightness, is 0.5 pounds lighter, has a redesigned industrial design, and is 30% smaller when is enlarged and folded. Best of all, it has the new projector mode, making it a 2-in-1 device.
“We built Splay from the ground up using the lessons we learned from building SPUD to create the ultimate portable display,” said CTO and co-founder George zhu. “We have made revolutionary advancements in our patented technology and look forward to our funders experiencing Splay for themselves.”
