It’s that time of year again with AFL and NRL Grand Finals coming up to round out great seasons of the two sports. Die-hard fans around the country will be flocking to the eastern states to support their teams, and we are proud to see our mighty Fremantle Dockers will be fighting for semifinals glory at the MCG this weekend. For those that like to watch the finals at home or with friends, the Philips PicoPix Max TV is an awesome option to consider for your entertainment needs.
Based on Android TV, the Philips PicoPix Max TV projects images up to 120” in True Full HD 1080p, and the best thing is that it’s portable. My home theatre project has cables hidden in the roof, hooked up to a surround sound system with all other devices like my Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 plugged into it. I absolutely love my theatre room, but it quickly piles up with my daughters toys. Having a portable solution that can be set up in any room, and even the back yard, is a no brainer. With its auto focus, 4 corner correction, digital zoom and auto-keystone, you can enjoy a pixel perfect, crystal clear video wherever you’re projecting.
The PicoPix Max TV comes with an incredible built-in 2×12 watts stereo speakers for an immersive cinematic experience with a strong, precise sound. You can even use it as a Bluetooth speaker to listen your favourite tunes even if the projector is off! You may be asking about the battery life? Well this unit lasts up to 4 hours in projection mode or 10 hours in Bluetooth Speaker mode. The Powerbank function will also charge all your devices via the USB-C or USB-A port. You can also use Google Cast to wirelessly cast your screen directly from any Android, iOS, Windows or MacOS device or hook up a PlayStation, Xbox or Nintendo Switch console via HDMI.
The projector features auto keystone and four corner correction help to eliminate crooked and distorted images for a perfectly proportioned picture, even if the device is not straight in front of the wall. I wish I had this function with my current projector as mine hangs from the roof and over time has an ever-so-slight lean to it. I need to adjust the keystone once every year or two. The high-resolution camera and AI driven autofocus, will always ensure you get the clearest image, automatically.
Whatever your Grand Final plans are, I hope your favourite team gets a win and if you’re looking for a portable projector solution, the Philips PicoPix Max TV looks to be an awesome option. These are available from JB Hi-Fi and valued at AUD1495.
