With so many projectors on the market, what makes the UltraProjector Model 100 unique?

The UltraProjector Model 100 is the first video projector designed from the ground up as a weather-proof, stand-alone projector. It was NOT designed for the board room or for watching high-def movies... It IS perfect for use in indoor or outdoor situations where an inexpensive, low power, silent projector is needed with no user interaction and no PC required.  The UltraProjector Model 100 is simple - Just connect via USB to a PC, drag and drop your videos in the order you want them played, unplug and your ready to go.  To project, simply plug in to the nearest AC power outlet.  Your videos start playing in the order you copied them and continuously repeat until powered off.  No interaction is needed - there are no buttons on the projector!

How is the UltraProjector Model 100 so inexpensive? Is it low quality?

The UltraProjector Model 100 is inexpensive because it is simple.  There are no complex interfaces, no buttons, no keystone correction, no fan, no remote control, no complicated lens assemblies.  It was designed that way - to fill a need for an inexpensive, low power, silent, stand-alone projector.  We sourced the latest components that were already being massed produced and put them together in a unique way.  In fact, we use all glass lenses instead of the cheap plastic lenses used in other low budget projectors!

Does the ultraProjector Model 100 only work with Windows? What about Mac?

The UltraProjector Model 100 was designed and tested for use on Windows PCs running XP and/or Vista.  Many customers have purchased them and used with Macs, but they have run into and overcome small issues with Mac hidden files being left on the UltraProjector Model 100 causing it to hang - in some cases, special tools were needed to remove the files and get the projector to work.  In addition, the conversion software we provide on our downloads page will only run on Windows, therefore a different Xvid encoder will be needed. We cannot support use on Mac, but will do our best.

What are common uses for the UltraProjector Model 100?

Party/Night Club visual projections such as shadow dancers, dazzling light patterns, etc.
Advertising on floors, sidewalks, walls & ceilings indoors or outdoors.
Real Estate Marketing of homes, apartments, storefronts, buildings, etc - Own the night!
Holiday themed projections for Christmas, Halloween, etc.
Sensory therapy for special needs - A silent, stand-alone video projector for a fraction of the cost!
Stage Lighting effects
Trade Show displays - Durable, inexpensive, self-contained display for product demonstration.

How do I load video content?

Content is loaded simply by plugging in the included USB cable between the UltraProjector Model 100 and your PC.  Your PC will recognize the UltraProjector Model 100 as a flash drive and map to an available drive letter.  You can then simply delete, cut, and copy content between the UltraProjector Model 100 and your PC.  The order video files are copied to the UltraProjector Model 100 determines the playback order.

What file format does the UltraProjector Model 100 accept?

The UltraProjector Model 100 accepts a specially encoded video file (Xvid encoded MPEG) with an .avi extension.  We provide you with easy to use software for converting standard videos of .mpg, .avi formats into the appropriately encoded .avi format required.

Is the UltraProjector Model 100 water-proof?

The UltraProjector Model 100 is NOT water-proof - it cannot be immersed in water, it is weather-resistant so it can be used outdoors in the rain and sunshine and will continue to operate.

Does the UltraProjector Model 100 play audio?

Yes - While there are no internal speakers, the UltraProjector Model 100 includes an audio output (standard 3.5mm stereo jack).  There is no built-in amplifier.

When will the UltraProjector Model 100 be available?

We began shipping in October 2009 - We try to keep them in stock, but at times there may be up to a few weeks wait for shipment (See "Buy Now" Page).

What type of light source does the UltraProjector Model 100 use?

The UltraProjector Model 100 uses a 12 Watt LED light source rated at about 900 Lumens with a life expectancy of 50,000 Hours.

Is there any boot logo or menu displayed during power-up?

No - There is no boot logo displayed during power-up.  When powered up, a full white screen is displayed for about 1 second followed by about 6 second of darkness, then loaded videos will begin playing and loop continuously until powered off.
