AAXA Technologies Unveils L1 v2 Pico Projector; Features 800×600 Resolution, Focus-free Projection of Images

Written By Sam on 29 November 2010

It is nice to see that AAXA Technologies is making an effort to offer more and more sophisticated pico projectors. Their first model, the L1, met with a good reception prompting them to introduce a revised and improved version, the L1 v2 Pico Projector. This one’s one of the smallest pico projectors at 4.2-inch x 2.1-inch x 1.2-inch, weighing a mere 170 grams, including the battery. True portability redefined.

This projector features 800×600 resolution using an LCoS imager and 20 lumen output from three color lasers resulting in sharp, deeply saturated images even in bright ambient light conditions.

The improved V2 employs focus-free projection of images up to 50 inches in size onto any surface, even curved surfaces, from any angle and simultaneous far and near surface projection. The onboard battery is expected to run the projector for at least 1.5 hours. This projector features a built in media player which can playback AVI, ASF, MPG, WMV streams, audio streams in the MP3, AAC and WAV formats and images in .jpg, .png and .bmp formats. It can also handle documents in .doc, .xls, .ppt and .pdf extensions. Such source files can be fed to the projector through a USB drive.

Accessories are available to connect the device to Microsoft Zune, Sony Playstation portable, iPhone/iPad and a number of cellphones like Nokia, Samsung, HTC and LG.

This amazing pocket sized device can be ordered from www.aaxatech.com for a pre-release price of $399, after which the retail price is fixed at USD 449. Availability commences December 1, 2010.

Of course, true HD and 1080i functionality may be available in future releases, hopefully.
