AAXA LED Showtime 3D Projector brings portable to a new level
AAXA Technologies has just announced that they have a spanking new projector for the masses, and that would be the AAXA LED Showtime 3D Projector. AAXA Technologies themselves are old hat when it comes to delivering portable projectors to the market, but this time around, they seem to have hit new heights with the AAXA LED Showtime Micro Projector as it makes use of next generation Light-Emitting-Diodes (LEDs) projection technology, and when that is merged with a high resolution 1280 x 800 DLP imager, you know for sure that your eyes are in for a spanking good time. After all, LEDs have been proven to be superior to lamp based projectors, and this is made possible by directly injecting red, green, and blue light into the projection engine, rather than taking the old school route of relying on filtered white light. As a result, you end up with images that are far more vivid and colorful in nature.
Advertised to sport a 20,000 hour life-span, which is tens times longer compared to a traditional lamp projector, the AAXA LED Showtime 3D Projector will feature native 720P (WXGA) resolution that is powered by a Texas Instruments DLP imager, and apart from the 20,000 hour LEDs, there is also a 3D ready graphics processor inside, in addition to an onboard Movie, Slideshow, and Music player. All of these might sound as though it needs plenty of space to fit in, but in reality, they are all housed within a micro form-factor that measures a mere 5.9” x 5.2” x 1.4”, making it able to fit in the palm of your hand. This can be said to be a true mini projector that can deliver giant, deep, immersive video and game-play of up to 160”.
There is a wide range of input sources, where among them are HDMI and VGA connections, a Composite Video input cable, and a USB memory stick slot that paves the way for media playback. As for outputs, you get a 3.5mm headphone jack and integrated 2-watt speakers – not much, but functional for a small viewing crowd. A rather robust 880MHz ARM chipset will keep the AAXA LED Showtime 3D Projector going, rendering high resolution full-length movies and high megapixel digital pictures without missing a beat.
Want 3D? Not a problem with the “DLP-3D” processor that displays 3D movies, games, and education content (although you will need a pair of 3D glasses and Quad Buffered 3d Graphics card to have it work). The asking price for the AAXA LED Showtime 3D projector is $499.99 a pop.
