AAXA LED Showtime 3D Micro Projector Prepares to Shine in Three Dimensions   aaxa showtime1

You may have seen some of AAXA’s other products before, like the AAXA P300 pico projector, but the new AAXA LED Showtime 3D micro projector brings an extra trick up its sleeve. As you can probably figure out, this micro projector is capable of showing 3D via its onboard decoder. That’s great for compatible 3D movies and video games.

The idea with the Showtime is that it was designed as a full entertainment projector, but in a micro projector size. It has a native 720p HD resolution and is able to project an image of up to 160 inches across the diagonal. They’ve picked the best possible LEDs to increase color reproduction quality and, since they’re super bright LEDs, they should do well under a variety of lighting conditions. It takes on HDMI or VGA for input and has a powerful ARM processor to natively handle MP4, MP3, AVI, JPG and text files. The LED engine has been rated for a 20,000 hour life.

It’s certainly debatable whether you’d want to replace a regular LED HDTV with something like this, but the AAXA Showtime is showing that you don’t need a giant projector to get a real 3D home theater experience. Of course, you can use this for presentations too, as well as movies and games.

Tustin, CA December 14, 2012

AAXA Technologies is pleased to release the AAXA LED Showtime 3D Projector. The AAXA LED Showtime Micro Projector employs next generation Light-Emitting-Diodes (LEDs) projection technology coupled with a high resolution 1280×800 DLP imager. LEDs are superior to lamp based projectors by directly injecting red, green, and blue light into the projection engine instead of relying on filtered white light. The result is more vivid, colorful image and a 20,000 hour life-span – tens times longer than a traditional lamp projector.

Mobile Game & Movie Platform

The AAXA LED Showtime 3D features native 720P (WXGA) resolution powered by a Texas Instruments DLP imager, 20,000 hour LEDs, 3D ready graphics processor, and an onboard Movie, Slideshow, and Music player. All this is housed in a micro form-factor, measuring just 5.9” x 5.2” x 1.4”. The LED Showtime 3D is a true mini projector capable of producing giant, deep, immersive video and game-play of up to 160”.

A Big Projector in a Micro Projector Size

The AAXA LED Showtime 3D is a full-featured entertainment projector in a micro projector size. A variety of input sources include HDMI and VGA connections, a Composite Video input cable, and a USB memory stick slot for media playback. Outputs include a 3.5mm headphone jack and onboard 2 watt speakers.

Processing power is provided by a robust 880mhz ARM chipset able to render high resolution full-length movies and high megapixel digital pictures. 3D capability is made possible by a “DLP-3D” processor able to display 3D movies, games, and education content (requires 3D glasses and Quad Buffered 3d Graphics card). The AAXA LED Showtime 3D is a true miniature powerhouse able to perform like a full sized projector and able to double as a stand-alone entertainment system without the need to connect to a video source or game console.
