    TLDR: The Prima 1080p HD Pocket Projector can cast a bright HD quality image at up to 200 inches across for all your viewing needs. It’s also now under $200.

    The word projector used to mean something very different. If you grew up in the 20th century, projectors were either almost room-sized beasts that dominated moviehouses — or they were those reel-to-reel 16mm dinosaurs that AV kids scooted from classroom to classroom on rickety old carts.

    Either way, they were extremely big and unwieldy. Thanks to technology, film is practically a thing of the past, and so are most of those giant projectors. Now, they’re so small that you can mistake them for your smartphone at a glance.

    Like the Prima 1080p HD Pocket Projector ($199 after code PRIMA from TNW Deals). It’s literally about the size and weight of an iPhone, but when connected via Bluetooth or WiFi, it’s got enough power to put those old-school projectors to shame.

    In fact, the Prima’s main calling card is that bulb, a 200 lumen lightsource that’s about four times the brightness of most comparable portable projectors. Set it up, point it at a clear wall or screen and you can cast a cinema-quality image up to an impressive 200 inches across, all while serving up a crisp, sharp, detailed picture. That 1080p HD picture doesn’t require a black room either, presenting a stellar image in virtually any lighting conditions. It’s also sport automatic keystone angle adjustment abilities, allowing the Prima to present straight, clear images on almost any surface.

    At the heart of this projector is an Android-powered, 64-bit quad core processor, which offers more than enough computing power to sync to your phone, tablet, laptop or other device to stream content. Of course, it’s also powerful enough to access streaming services on its own and stream right from the projector too.

    Meanwhile, the formidable battery inside has enough oomph to cast up to 3 hours of video playback or even play music for up to 30 hours on a single charge.

    Regularly $799, the Prima 1080p HD Pocket Projector is already discounted by 50 percent, but when you also use the code word PRIMA when you place your order, you can save an additional $200 off your cost. That brings the final price for this mobile entertainment centerpiece to only $199 with this offer.
