The Cinemin Swivel is more specifically a mid-grade budget projector designed to be fully portable for users always on the go; but doesn't necessarily sacrifice quality to attain the portability. It features a WVGA 480 x 360 native resolution displayed in a 4:3 native aspect ratio. The device includes support for a front projection mode in the aforementioned DLP display format; the lens is an LED projection lens with a 10 ANSI lumen brightness rating. The Cinemin Swivel also offers support for portable media accessed on USB drives through the built in slot; the device can also be connected to a PC through the USB. Additional features include a built-in AV jack, a 3 hour battery life, a hinge that bends at a full 90 degree angle, and a body design similar to the size of a candy bar.

Unfortunately at this time there is no additional information on the device besides what is noted above. Further updates on this particular product will come as they are announced.
