XGIMI CC Aurora, first Portable Android Wireless Projector with 180″ 720p HD Imaging

XGIMI CC Aurora, first Portable Android Wireless Projector with 180″ 720p HD Imaging

XGIMI CC Aurora is a wireless projector revolutionizes home entertainment by combining immersive audio and video performance in a compact size. Also, it features pair of active shutter glasses for the CC Aurora’s 3D support.

Features:

  • Square pixels and 720p resolution
  • Watch Netflix, HBO, Youtube etc. with JBL audio
  • 180-inch screen with 350 ANSI lumens
  • Wi-Fi, Airplay, Miracast, HDMI etc.
  • Autofocus and keystone correction (vertical & horizontal)

The one thing that cancels out the joys of watching stuff with a projector has always been the setup: The beamer needs to be far enough away from the wall, connected to a laptop, which in turn has to connect to speakers that are also close to the wall.

Like many newer electronics brands out of China, XGIMI crowdfunded the kickoff of three of their latest beamers, the latest one of which is the CC Aurora. The beamer is a compact cube, with sides measuring about 13 centimeters, but it packs everything you want from a beamer: A projector with a 720p output that’s easily visible during the day, a decent sounding set of stereo JBL speakers, autofocus, and a battery that easily outlasting the two-and-a-half-hour-long movie.

The quality of projection was pretty good though. The colors are vivid and clear, it outputs enough light to watch with the living room lights on, and doesn’t look fuzzy in the corners. But the most surprising is the sound quality of the speakers. For such a tiny box they put out an impressive amount of bass, and stay clear throughout. The beauty of it is also that the sound is projected at the wall, so it bounces back at you and tricks your brain into believing the sound is coming from the picture.

Promotional pics around the CC Aurora show it in pretty unrealistic outdoorsy situations; people out camping in a cave who just happened to bring along a portable projector screen. Setting up the beamer and keystoning it, is a piece of cake, and probably beats wrangling with projector setups in most meeting rooms. Its’ -based software is still full of flaws. XGIMI promises the possibility of installing apps, but that doesn’t seem to be working in Version 1.1.

The company also promises support for all kinds of over-the-air streaming (AirPlay, DLNA, Miracast) but none of those work yet.

The price $599 for XGIMI CC Aurora on Amazon is pretty steep but you can get one for $399 on Indiegogo. For those prices, you’d expect the device to work flawlessly out of the box.
