|German term or phrase: Beamer|
|In a press release:|
"Bereits im nächsten Jahr soll diese leistungsfähige Energieversorgung für Notebooks, mobile Drucker oder **Beamer** zur Verfügung stehen."
Am I right in thinking this is some kind of projector?
Thanks in advance!
Apparently, technically, it's the sort of projector you can connect to a computer system, see definition below:
So you could leave it as a beamer. But they may also be using it in a more general context (because it sounds English and cool!) so you may be happier with projector.
A couple more links below for good measure!

|Thanks Mary! Because my text was otherwise very general, I've opted for projector as this will be more easily understood by the average reader.|
