Kodak Breaks Price-Performance Barrier for Digital ProjectorsNew Digital Projectors to Offer High Performance at Excellent Price
ANAHEIM, CA., June 15 -- Kodak today announces two new high performance digital projectors, the Kodak V600 Digital Projector and the Kodak V600 Zoom Digital Projector. Combining Kodak quality, reliability and ease of use at an affordable price, the new V600 Digital Projectors offer 1000 ANSI lumens and up to 4,000 hours lamp life making them perfect for use in the boardroom, conference room or classroom.
With an estimated U.S. street price of less than $2,300 and $2,600 for the zoom model, both projectors are suitable for even the most budget-conscious buyer, and will be shipping in the U.S. in early July.
"These new presentation products will set new standards in digital projectors at very affordable prices," said Salim Sunderji, General Manager, Kodak Presentation Technologies. "Both projectors offer very bright images for use in most rooms and lighting conditions, and will cost less than the laptop you connect them to. Either in a boardroom, classroom or conference room, presenters will get the added advantage of high confidence in the Kodak unit's performance."
The V600 projectors produce bright images in almost any room or lighting conditions. Weighing only 7.5 lbs. (3.4 kg), they are ideal as desktop projectors for presenters that are on the move. Setup is easy; almost anybody can present with confidence-just unpack, plug in and project.
The V600 Zoom model has all the features of the V600 with the added convenience of a built-in manual zoom. In addition to all this, the V600 projectors feature Kodak's exclusive Image Manager software which enables the projector settings to be adjusted so that the color, brightness and contrast of the images are perfect every time. At the touch of a button, settings can be optimized to show pictures, graphics, spreadsheets or rich true colors.
