Canon has announced the release of new portable projectors. The line was supplemented with three lamp models LV-WU360, LV-WX370 and LV-X350. They are characterized by a long service life and high brightness of the projected image. And thanks to the wide connectivity they are suitable for playing a variety of content.
Each of the new models weighs no more than 3.3 kg and is suitable for the needs of educational institutions and sales professionals who often have to carry the device. The devices have a brightness of 3500 and 3700 lumens, providing visibility in any light. LV-WU360, LV-WX370 and LV-X350 projectors support 10-bit signal for realistic colors and deep black, eliminating picture flicker. Typically, the LCD projectors show grid lines, but the LV-WU360 and LV-WX370 use microlens to enhance the brightness and make the grid lines almost invisible.
Due to the projection distance from 76 to 760 mm, they are suitable for both small meeting rooms and large conference rooms. Automatic correction of trapezoidal distortions and precise manual correction at four angles are available to the user. These features allow you to fine-tune the geometry of the image, even if the projector is angled or off-axis when used in confined space. Models LV-WX370 and LV-X350 also provide adjustment of geometric distortions, so that the image retains the desired shape when displayed on concave or convex screens, or surfaces.
The new models support a wide range of resolutions: WUXGA (1920x1200), WXGA (1280x800) and XGA (1024x768). Several options for connecting to the control console, including LAN, two types of USB and two HDMI ports, allow you to show a variety of content, including presentations, images and video. USB ports and an interface with prompts allow you to connect the projector even if the laptop has no video output. In addition, the content can be shown from the memory card — even without a laptop. Built-in 10W speaker allows you to play audio without additional hardware. For greater portability, all three models have standard, fast, or instant cooling features so that the device can be unplugged immediately and moved to a different location.
Thanks to the robust design of the filter and the lamp with a life of 20,000 hours, the new products are comparable in durability with more expensive laser projectors. If you need replacement or repair, the key components are easily accessible even when the projector is mounted on the ceiling.
