San Diego, CA-June 7, 1999-Proxima Corporation, a world leader in the multimedia projection industry, today introduced the Proxima UltraLight SV1, a feature-rich, 700 ANSI lumen, native SVGA (800 x 600) projector for the mobile presenter. Designed with a variety of unique features that help presenters deliver clear, effective messages, the UltraLight SV1 is ideal for use in training classes, sales seminars, collaborative presentations, and many others. With an anticipated street price of $2,999 and an industry-leading lamp life, the UltraLight SV1 sets the new industry standard for price, performance and cost of ownership in a lightweight, LCD ultraportable projector.
Features make it a premium projector; low cost of ownership makes it affordable
Weighing just 8.1 pounds, the UltraLight SV1 makes it easy for mobile professionals to take their high-impact presentations with them. Equally important for the value-conscious presenter, its low total cost of ownership puts it within easy reach of all mobile presenters. Not only is its anticipated street price extremely low, but its 4,000-lamp life gives it approximately 10 years of worry-free presentations.*
"We are excited to offer this truly performance-oriented communications tool at a price point that makes it accessible to virtually all mobile presenters," said Stuart Schaffer, Proxima's vice president of marketing. "Its features truly set it apart from other projectors in this price category. Proxima doesn't sacrifice performance for price: the UltraLight SV1 proves this."
The UltraLight SV1's manual zoom, five inputs (1 computer, 1 video, 1 s-video, 2 audio), and broad range of video compatibility make this a premium projector at a break-through price. The UltraLight SV1 is a native SVGA (800 x 600) resolution projector that seamlessly supports VGA, SVGA and XGA images, so the user does not have to be concerned with resolution compatibility between the projector and the PC. The UltraLight SV1 fits perfectly in any presentation environment of the mobile presenter.
