AXXA P2 Pico Projector 33 Lumen and Onboard VGA Connection
The Axxa P2 is a pocket size projector that works with the iPhone, the iPod, the Zune, the Sony PSP as well as many cell phones. It is similar to the Cinemin Pico Projector - however, I think that the big news here is that the Axxa P2 has a VGA connection that attaches directly to a laptop computer with a resolution as high as 1280 x 720.
Small and large business meetings alike often require bulky equipment. Files, laptop and projector – where is the bag with wheels? Carry extra cash to tip the doorman. This may have made sense in the past but not now. No longer does traveling to meetings have to be cumbersome. A case packed with the Axxa P2, all of the cables, a minature tripod and additional batteries could possibly weigh in at less than five or six pounds.
The Axxa P2 is really amazingly small. It measures about 4.3 x 2.3 x 1 inches. If you need more than 35 minutes of viewing time a choice of external batteries can be attached that boosts the viewing time to either 70 to 180 minutes. Of course the AC adapter can provide unlimited viewing power.
Meetings held in total darkness are not conducive to much interaction. The powerful 33 lumen LED lamp of the Axxa P2 has a SVGA resolution of 800 x 600 and is bright enough to see an image of at least 32 inches from a distance of nearly 5 feet in a moderately darkened room. Now if the room can be darkened further an image as large as 80 inches can be viewed from nearly 8 feet. Either way that is a huge step forward for a micro projector and makes it viable for business use.
An additional way to use the Axxa P2 is through its built-in 1GB memory and MicroSD card slot. Presentations can be given with no other display source other than its own 1GB of internal memory or a 4GB MicroSD card. The Axxa P2 – with its onboard speakers, memory and remote control can be a single gadget show.
