The Aaxa Technologies L1v2 is the upgraded version of the L1, Laser Pico Projector, and the only second generation laser powered projector on the market. The thermal efficiency of the PCOS laser light engine was improved to produce images with better color saturation. It uses a unique three color laser light source that changes quickly in projection size on curved or flat surfaces with focus free operation for angled projections from close and far distances. It is a little bigger than the first generation Aaxa Tech L1, but remains about the size of an iPhone, and provides 800×600 resolution at 20 lumens.
The L1v2 includes a USB Port for you to plug into a flash drive so you do not have to bring your notebook to display a presentation or watch a movie. The accessories included with the projector are: 2GB USB memory stick, AC adapter, A/V cable, and VGA cable and tripod clip. It has a built in mono speaker and stereo/headphone mini-jack to create for an all inclusive presentation machine. It is an extremely portable pocket projector which weighs just 170g and just consumes roughly 7.5W of power. Supported formats for video output include: AVI, MPEG, WMV, ASF, and MPG. Document support includes: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and PDF Image: JPEG, GIF, BMP, and PNG. Music service comprises: MP3, MP2, OGG, and WAV. The L1v2 also has an internal storage pico laser capable of storing files up to 160MB and life span of battery which would reach around 1.5 hours.
The best part about The Aaxa technology L1v2 is that it delivers a wonderful quantity of features for a inexpensive price. The L1, first creation, was almost double the cost and not quite as great oasis spa. The terrible thing about the L1v2 is that, due to the small business size of Aaxa, the inventory is extremely low- It is very tough to get your hands on one. The company does not have the type of funds available to keep up with demand. The lasers are also 100% free of mercury and no bulbs to get a need to substitute. The new Kind of LCOS (liquid-crystal-on-silicon) technology based projectors fall into two classes of Eye-safety, where class-1 will restrict projectors to 20 lumens and class-2 will have the capability to reach several hundred lumens so that it optimizes the laser and the heat dissipated from it which makes it much safer to observe.
