Through years of R&D, our patent granted Splay material science technology is the only display (projection or otherwise) that can fully fold without permanent wrinkles. We have also received patents for the only one-step (and extremely durable) expand and collapse display. You can check out some of our granted U.S. patents here.
Will the screen wrinkle or crease when folded?
We developed (and patented!) the first type of projection screen that significantly mitigates wrinkles when collapsed. Combined with the tension applied by the arms, this ensures a flat screen surface that does not interfere with the image!
How do I connect to Splay?
You can easily connect your phone, tablet, laptop, gaming console, etc. to Splay via HDMI or wireless adapters like Chromecast. If your device does not output HDMI, adapters are readily available, like the Apple Lightning to HDMI adapter for iPhone. A USB-C to HDMI adapter, included in your Splay box, can be used to connect to Android Phones, latest iPhones, and the latest MacBooks and iPad Pro. Moving forward, every box will include a tripod and USB-C to HDMI.
Can I use Splay outside?
We only recommend using Splay outside in shaded areas and/or close to dusk/dawn and at night. Splay works great in most indoor environments! Like all projectors, you just want to avoid direct light, like direct sunlight and very direct bright lights.
What can I do if I want to change the display angle?
There’s a kickstand at the back of Splay that you can use to adjust the angle.
Can I use a powerbank to charge Splay?
Yes, you can use a powerbank. Just make sure it supports 15 V PD like this one.
Can I use Splay in portrait mode?
Yes, Splay can be used in portrait mode. Windows and Mac have ways to adjust orientation to portrait. With iOS and Android, you need to use 3rd party dongles.
How does projector mode work?
You can easily (less than 1 minute) remove our patented display technology and, with the press of a button, flip the image and project on a wall. Projector mode also features vertical auto-keystone correction, so if the projector is tilted, it will automatically flatten the image on the wall. When you need to use Splay in display mode, it is just as easy to put the display back.
