Home / Computers/technology / Gadgets / Video: Xgimi Takes On The Big Boys With A Portable Projector



Portable projectors have come a long way over the past decade. Chinese projector manufacturer Xgimi has now launched the latest in portable projector technology, the CC Aurora, a wireless, bright projector powered by Android. Xgimi is no stranger to the projector game after making over $1 million (US) last year crowdfunding its previous design. The CC Aurora dives into the portable projector market with some pretty impressive specs for a portable device at a very competitive price point – especially if you get in on the early bird offers. The CC Aurora offers a resolution of 720p, but it is the brightness and scale that really make it stand apart. It hits 350 ANSI lumens and can project an image of up to 180 inches in size. 

The battery's single charge reportedly offers four hours playtime and the built-in JBL speakers should deliver a decent sound. On the sound front, the unit can also be used as a Bluetooth speaker. 

Ultimately, the CC Aurora sits in an interesting middle ground in the world of portable projectors. It's a bit bulkier than some others, but it makes up for its size in fantastic battery life and picture quality.

Xgimi is currently launching the product through an Indiegogo campaign and its planned retail price is set for US$569. But it's the early bird offers than making it a real bargain with the first tier going for $389. Xgimi estimates shipping in January 2018 if all goes to plan, and while it's an ambitious target for an unproduced product, the company does have a history of successfully manufacturing projectors so this is probably a relatively safe crowdfunding gamble.

Take a look at the CC Aurora in the video below.
