Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging, has expanded its notable line of LCD Multimedia Projectors with a native WXGA-resolution (1280 x 800) widescreen model, a 3,000 lumen XGA model and a 3,500 lumen XGA model. These projectors share a set of user-friendly features, improved ergonomic design and attractive pricing, making them ideal for both educational and business environments.
The new Canon LV-8300 Multimedia Projector provides a native WXG--resolution and aspect ratio of 16:10, which allows it to support data and imagery from widescreen notebooks and desktop computers. As a result of the projector's native widescreen format, this model supports popular WXGA-resolution computers in their native format, avoiding the need for compression and/or unsightly distortion.
All three new Canon LV-Series Multimedia Projectors share several key user-friendly features and benefits, including:
• 1.2x Zoom Lens
• High Brightness
• Compatibility (multiple inputs)
• Flexible Image Settings
• Whiteboard Mode
• Screen Color Correction
• Ergonomic Design
• Network Connectivity
• Simplified Maintenance
The 1.2x Zoom Lens offers flexibility by ensuring a wider range of throw distances, allowing these projectors to fit multiple screen sizes, whether in large or small rooms. In addition, the high brightness these projectors emit ensures they can be used in environments where excessive ambient light exists and cannot be controlled, and in classrooms/meeting rooms where notes need to be taken and turning out the lights to darken the room is not preferred.
The multiple inputs offered by these projectors add to their flexibility, as they support notebook/desktop computers, Blu-ray and DVD players, VCRs, digital cameras and camcorders. The DVI-I interface ensures a digital connection supports the HDCP and high-definition contents available today (HD signals supported include 1080i and 720p). The flexible image settings offer added versatility with five modes to select from (Standard, Presentation, Cinema, Video and sRGB), allowing the presenter to optimize their projected images and videos. Also included in the flexible image settings is a function that allows users to adjust the aspect ratio according to the type of projection desired.
With the rising popularity of whiteboards in the education market, these projectors offer a Whiteboard Mode to dramatically reduce reflective white spots when projecting on a whiteboard. For those projecting on to more traditional surfaces, the Screen Color Correction will automatically adjust and compensate for wall or screen colors.
The new Canon LV-8300 Multimedia Projector is scheduled to be available in mid-March at a manufacturer’s suggested list price of $1,399. The new Canon LV-7375 and LV-7370 Multimedia Projectors are scheduled to be available in mid-March at a manufacturer's suggested list price of $1,799 and $1,299, respectively. All three projectors are backed by Canon U.S.A.'s Three-Year Limited Warranty and Projector Protection Program ("Triple P").
