continued to grow in popularity, people’s screen choices keep getting smaller
– from the TV to the computer to the laptop to the tablet and even the
smartphone. Today, 3M, an innovative leader in mobile projection, and Roku®,
have partnered to create a truly unique and affordable entertainment
experience by bringing back big-screen viewing. 3M is introducing the
first-of-its kind Streaming Projector so users can finally untether from their
living room TVs, stop crowding around their tiny screens and create an instant
cinema big-screen viewing experience anywhere with a Wi-Fi connection can be

Small enough to fit in your hand, yet able to project an image up to 120
inches, the 3M Streaming Projector is perfect for family movie nights,
sleepovers and evening backyard parties. With up to a two hour 45 minute
battery life, the 3M Streaming Projector can project almost anywhere – on to a
basement wall, a bedroom ceiling or even a backyard fence.
Mark Colin, vice president and general manager of 3M Mobile Interactive
Solutions Division said “With the 3M Streaming Projector, parents can recreate
those epic movie memories from their childhoods that can be experienced
through the magic of projection.” Equipped with a Roku Streaming Stick™, the
projector has access to over 600 channels with both paid channels like
Netflix^®, Hulu Plus, and Amazon Instant Video and free channels like
Crackle^™, so there is content for everyone.
“We’ve worked very closely with the 3M projector team to ensure consumers get
the best streaming experience available from a projection device” says Chas
Smith, senior vice president and general manager of Roku’s platform OEM
business. “The 3M Streaming Projector creates a big-screen Roku experience for
people to enjoy content in any setting.”
The 3M Streaming Projector integrates the Roku Streaming Stick, a thumb-drive
size device that gives users access to the Roku platform, which features a mix
of videos, music and game channels.
“Thanks to our partnership with Roku, we are excited to introduce an
affordable streaming projector that delivers both a high-quality viewing
experience, as well as easy access to a wealth of entertainment” said Colin.
