Pico projectors are pretty nifty little objects, but most of them end up being too dim or too weak to be practical under most conditions. Things are about to light up, though, thanks to the newly released P4 Pico Projector from AAXA Technologies. That’s because they claim it is the world’s brightest battery-powered pico projector.
There may be other pico projectors that are brighter, but they’d require an external power source. With the P4 from AAXA, you can do it off a battery and have your PowerPoint presentation ready to go anywhere you are. Just bring along the laptop.
The AAXA P4 Pico Projector is powered by a 750MHz Windows CE mobile processor, but how bright is bright? Well, it gets an 80 lumen high-contrast optical engine by way of Texas Instruments’ DLP. This works in tandem with AAXA’s Vibrant Color tech, utilizing 15,000 hour LEDs and an image of up to 80-inches (but only in low light conditions).
Rounding out the specs are 2GB memory, included tripod, 1280×800 VGA input, microSD slot, composite video input, 1-watt speaker, 3.5mm headphone jack, 720p video support, and support for 3rd party apps like Office Mobile, Adobe PDF viewer, and other Windows CE apps. The rechargeable lithium-ion battery is good for 75+ minutes. MSRP is set at $399, but that’s been reduced to $339 for current pre-orders.
