has introduced two new Mac compatible, wide-angle LCD projectors: the LV-7355 and LV-7350, which the company claims will let you project a 100-inch image from 9.2 feet — about four feet closer than Canon’s previous model.
Featuring native XGA resolution, a 1.5X motorized ultra-wide zoom lens, a wireless option and a media card option, the LV-7355 and LV-7350 also boast the Canon-developed Turbo Bright System. The brightness of the LV-7355 can be adjusted to 2,200 ANSI lumens, and the LV-7350 to 1,800 ANSI lumens, without increasing power consumption or sacrificing lamp life, according to Canon. Both projectors also feature Horizontal and Vertical Keystone Correction, designed to keep images perfectly proportioned and offer flexible image adjustment with 12 customized settings.
The LV-7355 and LV-7350 are equipped with a DVI-I interface for digital or analog RGB input; both can hook up to two computers simultaneously. Component, S-Video and RCA terminals are also on-board. The LV-WI01 optional Wireless Imager makes possible wireless transfer of screen images from a laptop or desktop computer to the projector easy. The optional Media Card Imager, (LV-MC01) lets you undertake computer-free presentations. A remote control provides access to key functions like digital zoom, image freeze and more.
The LV-7355 and LV-7350 weigh 9.4 pounds. They’ll be available later this month at a suggested list price of US$4499 and $3499, respectively.
