Both models offer a 0.35:1 Throw Ratio, 3000 Lumens, WXGA resolution (1280 x 800) and a contrast ratio of up to 7500:1, allowing for the projection of large, bright, high-resolution images and HD video from very short throw distances (both can display 80-inch diagonal images from less than one-foot from the projector). The high-image quality and versatility of these models make them ideal for a range of applications including educational and corporate presentations, and both rear-projection advertising and digital signage.
“The LV-WX300UST and LV-WX300USTi Multimedia Projectors are engineered to meet the high-quality and budget-friendly AV requirements of several diverse and dynamic markets,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “Both models can project impressive images from extremely short distances, taking advantage of smaller meeting room and classroom environments, while our new interactive model adds an important new dimension to presentations and lectures.”
“i” is for Interactive
The interactive projector technology supplied with Canon’s new LV-WX300USTi offers users a number of important benefits to help provide an immersive, engaging experience for students, employees and viewers. From collaborative problem solving to participatory team-building, the interactive benefits allow for a user to enhance presentation and lecture experiences by involving their audiences, thus helping improve message impact and retention.
The interactive functionality of the LV-WX300USTi allows for up to four interactive pens* to simultaneously write text and diagrams on the projected screen. For added flexibility, an optional Finger Touch Module can be purchased and installed to allow for writing using other objects (fingers, pointers, etc.) without the need of an interactive pen.
