The projectors measure 3.08" (h) x 11" (w) x 9.06" (d) and weigh 4.9 pounds.

AV inputs include HDMI, two analog RGB/component (mini D-sub 15-pin), composite video, and a stereo minijack. AV outputs include analog RGB/component (mini D-sub 15-pin) and a stereo minijack. Communication ports and peripherals include RJ-45, RS-232, and USB.
