ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Everyone loves that big-screen movie experience, yet as streaming
content has 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,

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®,

Instant Video and free channels like Crackle™,
so there is content for everyone.

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.”

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
