SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., 9 April 2009. The market for picoprojector display technology will exceed $1.1 billion within the next five years, led by applications in cell phones, accessory projectors, and computing devices, predict market researchers at In-Stat in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Picoprojectors project large display images and video from hand-held and mobile devices similar to conventional projectors

Projector module economies of scale will expand the market for embedded picoprojectors to lower-priced cell phones and media players in the near future, In-Stat analysts say in the report "Embedded Picoprojectors Ready To Break Out Worldwide."

"As mobile devices add more multimedia capabilities, embedded picoprojectors can add a big-screen experience to a very small device," says David Chamberlain, In-Stat analyst. "Technological advances in miniaturization, signal processing, and light sources-including green laser-are making picoprojectors a realistic feature for small battery powered devices like cell phones, media players, computing devices, and other consumer electronics."
