MELVILLE, NY, January 7, 2019 – It’s easy to love going to the office when your office is wherever you want it to be. Road warrior, traveling sales person, start-up founders – whatever the title, work doesn’t have to take place within the confines of a traditional office. Using lightweight, portable and versatile office equipment – work can happen anywhere. That’s why Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced a portable mini projector, the new Canon Rayo S11, allowing business professionals and consumers to mirror their smartphones, project photos, videos and documents, and play audio files wherever the job takes them.
With the ability to run for up to two hours completely wirelessly and share presentations from a USB drive or internal storage, the art of business pitches and presentations can now be refashioned thanks to the Rayo S1 and its variety of features. Users can showcase PDFs, word-processing documents and slide presentations, as well as host conference calls where office space is limited.
