The new LV models are described by Canon as being compact, reliable and easy to use, bringing bright, high-performance projection with longer lamp life at good value to
corporate and educational environments.

The models in Canon’s new LV range – LV-WX300, LV-X300, LV-S300, LV-WX300ST and LV-X300ST – offer high brightness, with each model featuring 3000 lumens as standard. The brightness makes it possible to clearly see images in a variety of meeting room and classroom environments, even when the lights are left on.

Canon has chosen to feature a high-quality digital light projection (DLP) engine in the LV series. The DLP engine features BrilliantColor technology, meaning that rich colours are made possible by the inclusion of a six-segment colour wheel. Cyan and yellow segments are included, which boost the saturation level. At the same time, the all-new DLP engine delivers contrast with ratios of 2300:1 across the range.

Each of the new models is ‘filter free’, while running costs are further reduced by the new long-life projection lamp, which can deliver up to 6,000 hours of run-time with consistent use of the ECO mode.

Four models within the range are equipped with an HDMI port, allowing reproduction of images from digital sources such as Blu-Ray disc players and modern notebook computers. When attached to a suitable source, the projector is capable of displaying 3D content via the DLP Link system.

The new models in Canon’s LV portable range are:

LV-WX300 – offering reliable, bright widescreen protection with a HDMI and Network port. Ideal for university or college lecture use;

LV-X300 – offering XGA resolution, bright projections and extremely reliable images. Especially suited to corporate presentations;

LV-S300 –offering SVGA resolution with low running costs, this entry-level model is suitable for classroom environments or small business use;

LV-WX300ST – projects clear widescreen images with good brightness from a short throw distance. This model is built for portability and flexibility for meeting room and classroom use;

LV-X300ST – provides bright, clear XGA images from a short-throw distance, suitable for both corporate and education environments.

Julian Rutland, planning and strategy director, Canon Europe, says: “We continue to work closely with system integrators and partners to ensure that our projectors answer the needs of their customers and the market. Offering brightness at an affordable price point, while ensuring the high quality that is synonymous with Canon, will ensure that the new models in the LV range will be compelling for our customers.”
