Projecting movie onto a wall

Project upto a 50" image/movie in your room!

The big problem with little gizmos is that their screens are titchy. In fact trying to enjoy a blockbuster on an iPod is only marginally more entertaining than trying to read the bottom line of an optician’s chart. So thank goodness for the utterly astounding Pocket Cinema.

This forehead-slappingly small device utilises breakthrough technology to project the pictures and movies trapped inside your gadgets (iPods, digital cameras, PSPs, memory cards, mobile phones and more), on to walls, screens and naked backsides. And despite its pocket-friendly dimensions, the image it chucks out is up to 50” wide. It’s even got a built-in stereo speaker.

Just think, travelling with a Pocket Cinema means you can enjoy big screen action wherever you may roam without having to lug around a ludicrously clunky projector (you know, the spool-chewing contraptions that sent entire families to sleep on rainy Sundays throughout the 70s and 80s). It’s brilliant for business presentations, parties and movie nights on the move.

Pocket Cinema

Pocket Cinema V10 explained

Powered by a rechargeable lithium battery, the Pocket Cinema uses a high powered LED to fling images wallwards (yes, we made that word up). We’re not talking plasma quality – and like all projectors image quality diminishes with distance – but dim the lights and it’s just like being at the flicks. Plus you won’t have to put up with any popcorn munching morons. Result.

As well as its ability to free the pics and vids in virtually any device, the Pocket Cinema V10 can also play directly from its 1GB internal memory or built-in card reader. Simply pop in a card and Barry Norman’s your uncle. We’ll even chuck in a remote control. And why not?

If you’re a lover of the big screen it’s time to stop squinting and get yourself a Pocket Cinema. It really is the ideal way to check out the bigger picture. Pass the chocolate raisins.

Customer Reviews

Does the apple av cable work with I pad2 ? cheers.
Jon - 3rd June 2011
Firebox says: No, it's for use with iPods and iPhones, but not iPads.
Would I be able to use the ArcSoft Media Converter Software with my Windows 7 PC.
Louis Escudie - 2nd June 2011
Firebox says: That shouldn't be a problem Louis.
Can you connect this to a Samsung Galaxy S2 and watch videos via the usb?
Richard - 19th May 2011
Will this work with a Froyo Android phone?
Noah - 7th April 2011
Firebox says: It surely will Noah.
Setting this up is not simple. It appears that it is not possible to play any video files via the usb connection. None of the 3 laptops does not have composite connection or s-video connection port (ie. No a/v connection ports). Being as it was a birthday present it was disappointing to say the least. Went to apple today to purchase the lead as which one is stated in description (Apple Composite AV cable). 4 different members of the Apple staff looked at the firebox website and the actual pocket cinema and said no way is this cable any good. Although it can work, due to having two connectors there will be lose of quality of the signal. Firebox, this may be coming straight back to you! would have been better off spending the dosh on a slap up meal!!!!
Dd - 28th January 2011
Firebox says: Sorry to hear that Dd, please by all means shoot us an email via and we can help you resolve this.
I got this for my christmas and it is really cool but I was wondering where I could get a replacement AV cable (3-in1 AV jack) as I think I must have twisted mine somehow because the videos I try to play are all black and white.
