Optoma has revealed its CES lineup, with two portable projectors: one that meet the needs of the big presentation in the ML300, and the quick show with the Pico pocket size PK320.

Throwing an image up to 160″, the ML300 boasts 300 lumens and a 3000:1 contrast ratio at just under a pound and a half, and 16:9, WXGA (1280×768) resolution. Powered by a green-friendly LED lamp that promises to last almost 4 times longer than traditional incandescents, this compact projector measures a mere 7.2” x 1.8” x 4.4”, making it easy to haul around on sales calls. With 2GB of internal memory (expandable to 32GB), no external media player or computer is required  for many common formats, including the Microsoft Office Suite, Adobe PDF files, and various flavors of MPEG-4 (H.264 [AVI, MOV, MP4, 3GP], MPEG4, Xvid, and MJPEG) for total convenience.

Smaller in stature still is the PK320, a  Pico projector that’s small enough to fit in your pocket. When  plugged in, the PK320 provides 100 lumens, and when unplugged from the wall, the PK320 transfers to low power mode that provides 25 lumens for up to an hour of continuous use at 852×480 (16:9 480p) resolution.

Both projectors feature miniHDMI, micro USB, VGA, a 3.5mm audio jack, and a combined composite/Stereo input for connecting pretty much any device to the projectors, including laptops, smartphones and tablets.

Standard accessories that come with the PK320 include an IR remote control, a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery(PK320 only), power adapter, carrying case, and the following cables: Universal to VGA cable, type A to microUSB and an RCA to 2.5 mm AV cable. The projector carries a 1-year limited warranty (90 days on the PK320 battery).
