The 4-inch thin Presenter is protected by hardened 3mm tempered glass and a vandal-proof metal housing."

The display features a Full HD resolution, flicker-free FPR 3D imaging that using an LED backlight rated for 50,000 hours, and is over 2.5 times larger than the Samsung SUR40 for Microsoft Surface 2, Ideum says.
