Lens cover option

Dear PPM owners, and owners to be, do you have a decent option for a lens cover? In the past 2 days I’m trying to find something suitable. It’s a pity they haven’t included something right from the start, but I don’t even remember what was the reason back in October when this was discussed in the Telegram group…maybe because of the form factor…but anyhow.

For a portable projector, which will be moved a lot, it’s essential to add a lens cover.

Anyone has some good suggestions?



To be honest I personally don’t have a need for one, yes it is a portable projector but it is still a fragile piece of kit and that means not just the lens, so I would recommend Any case / bag is recommended for the PPM?
I my self got a safe case


Hi Vin,

Yes, suprising oversight how exposed the lens is, not even a slide cover.

In my feedback to Philips/Screeneo I’ve already suggested a possible design change.

The remote is the width of the face of the projector, and almost same height. If the front of the projector was changed to offer a recess, with a lip. Then the remote could be clipped buttons facing in, acting as both a cover and somewhere to locate the remote for a more compact package.

Appreciate that doesn’t solve all our problem with a lack of lens cover protection!

best wishes


It would be actually be possible to 3D-Print one.
Reliably covering only the lens would be probably difficult, but covering the entire front part of the device is doable.

If I’d have a 3D Printer I’d start playing around/test, refine the design and then start an indiegogo project for it :rofl:

I can design it, and 3d print from flexible plastic. I guess you are from RU? Btw only lens cover seems not possible, it will involve front panel cover.

I’m from BG. It can be 3.8x3.8mm with something adhesive so it can stick to the surface and best to have a slider maybe…

I think it’s a shame the remote isn’t used as a lens cover. The dimensions are near perfect fit.

3 birds 1 stone: given that a silicone case is being designed/proposed to protect the Max. Why not double as remote control storage on front (ledge/lip on 3 sides locates the RC, just slide button facing inwards from open side). And which would then also triple as lens cover. Hey presto.

Given that its impractical/expensive to retool the projector/main body or RC housings to have such a discrete lip/ledge, I would humbly suggest tweaking the 3rd party silicone case instead prior to commissioning a batch of them!


Could you do a drawing of how this would look / work?
In pencil if you have to.

1st - the remote (RC) is very fortunately slightly smaller than the face/front/lens side of the projector. In fact it fits into the entire front profile of the Max by just 1-1.5mm.
2nd - the bottom of the RC is gently curved, while the top is flat except for slight raise because of the button controls
3rd - there is about 1-1.5mm of a flat continuous ledge along the whole top/flat side of the RC
4th - the RC top/flat side at the bottom half is without any buttons/protrusions. Perfectly smooth, flat and if you look in the first photo the area is about what one needs to protect and cover the lens without risk of debris/dust on rubber buttons
So excuse the very poor sketch drawing, but the suggestion is for the new Silicon/TPU case to have an area for the RC to slide in from the right side front (furthest away from the lens). The RC locator would be closed from 3 sides. You would slide the flat/button face along the guides until it reaches the end.
I mention the 1-1.5mm flat ledge along the whole length of the RC because it means one can create a ledge that then helps slide the RC along, but also raises the RC slightly from the face of the projector.
Its a very simple dea, and I would expect case mould solution that I’ve wasted too many words describing, but hopefully btwn the sketch, photos and text make sense.


Otherwise some suggested Software fixes include:
Keystone Memory correction, for when you have more than 1 location to use your max and want to avoid dealing with keystone each time (which lets face it isn’t much fun).
Bluetooth - OMG need to be able to pair two devices OR use headphone socket AND BT output at same time
Sound controls - at least treble+bass, but also environments (hall, room, open space)
Netflix - OMG that needs to be updateable!
Android certification - PLEASE get official Play store clearance

If there will be a lens protector then it needs som protection for accidently turn on
Easy fix that whit a small promixity sensor

@Innov a solid effort that mate, top marks!
