This thing is a pig. Fat, unattrctive, has cooling vents and fan - looks like a 1960's Zenith TV remote control.
It is nothing more than a miniture business projector AND it means nothing to anyone unless they are willing to show its picture / image quality.
Nothing to worry about friends. Just another gizmo from the land of gizmos.
Jeez, this is a silly thing that only a Karl could love. Wonderful evidence of 1) the industry's realization that this is a phenomenal new product category, and 2) the SUPREMACY of Microvision's technology.
To all the poor bastards who want a piece of this market but must avoid Microvision's patents: 82BU.
I do not like the news.
These guys bypassed the patents and came up with something that works. Maybe it is an inferior product, something I wouldn't know at this point, but it certainly took the splash out of a USA roll out, if one actually takes place.
Hope mvis has something to distribute in march.
Here are some specs on the Aaxa L1, the world's first laser powered pico projector with an internal media player and storage:
1)With its ultra-efficient optical engine, the L1 can produce rich images even in less-than-dark environments.* When used in darker environments the L1 can produce color-rich images up to 50".
2)Battery life is rated at 90 minutes.
3)The RGB laser light source far exceeds the NTSC standards with a 140% gamut and 2000:1 contrast ratio.
4) Noise: < 20dB
5)Aspect Ratio Control: 4:3
A few points I picked up on.
1) RGB lasers. Corning stated that mvis is first in line so where are these guys getting the gl from?
2) 140% color gamut? I rember mvis being at about double of LCD with 92%, so what's with this 140% claim?
3) noise < 20db? Ahhaaaaa, 19db is pretty loud. This must be the chopper fans trying to cool the work-around microvision's patents.
All I have to say is, lol, one more wannabe competitor. Aaxa will soon be axed.
Repeated from another thread:
Both Laseno and Aaxa L1 have specified their projection diagonal to be 15-50(80) inches.
Could it be that their focus free claim is only true between 15-80 inches ?
I wonder why their max. screen size is limited while both projectors have decent 20 lumens output (fan cooled).
So more than 100 inch shouldn´t be a problem with regards to brightness.
Did anyone order the Aaxa L1 yet and can clarify on focus and fan noise ?
Fat and ugly.
How can it be laser and only project up to 50". That's weak. Even LED can do more than that. I think we can sue them for claiming to be first laser projector to market. Maybe we only sold 3 units in Spain but we're still first.
