VALENCIA, Calif., June 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Wavien, Inc. announces today the introduction of a 1,000-lumen LED projector to be manufactured and sold by AAXA Technologies, Inc. (AAXA). This new projector, which uses Wavien’s proprietary DPR™ light engine, outperforms LED projectors by producing 1,000 lumens of brightness and a lifetime of 25,000 hours at the cost of a conventional desktop projector.
A production prototype unit will be shown at the Wavien booth, #5283, at the InfoComm in Orlando, Florida from June 15th to 17th. Performance, pricing, and delivery details for the new projector are now available from AAXA.
“Wavien’s DPR light engine provides a maintenance-free light source for projectors suitable for home theater/gaming applications, classrooms and small conference rooms. It outperforms LED projectors, providing a higher output, smaller footprint and longer lifetime, at a lower cost,” stated Dr. Kenneth Li, President and CEO of Wavien, Inc., who is also the inventor of the DPR technology. Dr. Li added: “This unique patented design enables a significant reduction in the cost of projector operation, which is especially important for use at home and classrooms where projector usage is very high and trouble-free operation is essential. We are very excited to work with AAXA, with its proven track record for manufacturing and marketing cutting-edge projectors on a worldwide scale.”
“The maintenance-free features of LED and hybrid projectors created expectations in consumers that all state-of-the-art projectors should use those technologies. We have identified a void in the market for affordable priced LED projectors with a screen brightness of about 1,000 lumens. LED projector outputs are too low, and hybrid projectors are costly,” stated Gary Huang, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at AAXA. “We are very fortunate to have identified Wavien’s DPR light engine technology, which allows us to fill this void in the market. We believe that there is a great opportunity in this area by combining Wavien’s technology with AAXA’s manufacturing, sales and marketing capabilities,” added Mr. Huang.
