CANON INTRODUCES ITS BRIGHTEST-EVER LARGE VENUE LCD PROJECTOR WITH A WIDE ARRAY OF IMPRESSIVE ADVANTAGESNew LV-7575 Multimedia Projector Features 5500 ANSI Lumens, Interchangeable Lenses, Enhanced Video Presentation Technology, and Versatile Installation
Boasting a Canon-best 5500 ANSI Lumens, the LV-7575 LCD projector features a standard 1.3X Canon Optics lens enhanced by four optional high quality interchangeable lenses including the Ultra Wide Angle, Wide Angle Zoom, Long Focus Zoom, and Ultra Long Focus Zoom that greatly expand versatility and value.
"The Canon LV-7575 model is our brightest LCD projector in more ways than one," said Yukiaki Hashimoto, senior vice president and general manager of the Consumer Imaging Group at Canon U.S.A., Inc. "With an ANSI Lumen ratio that's higher than our previous large venue model in standard mode, the LV-7575 projector is ideal for large and demanding environments where brightness and optical flexibility is essential."
In addition to its brightness, the LV-7575 projector also features native XGA resolution for crisp display of video and text, and will also support SXGA resolution through high-quality compression. Images can be projected from 3l"- 400" (diagonally), while an 800:1 contrast ratio provides deep, rich tones.
This brilliant new projector features:
• 2-3/2-2 Pulldown for minimizing motion artifacts on DVDs that were transferred from film;
• 10 bit digital video processing for smooth gradations/accurate color reproduction with 1.07 billion possible colors
• HDCP for HDTV and HD source viewing and playback
• A 1:1 – 10.0 Power Lens Shift
• A High Output 318W UHP Lamp
• Digital Keystone Adjustment: +/-35 Degrees Vertical and +/-15 Degrees Horizontal
• Customizable Logo Display with Lock Function
• Color Management, Auto Picture Control, Intelligent Image Sharpness
• Progressive Scan Converter for converting all interlaced signals, including 1080i / 1035i / 575i / 480i
The LV-7575 projector features Multiple Projection Modes: Standard (PC, Video), High Contrast (PC), Cinema (Video), Custom mode (PC/Video), while incorporating new video modes for the increasing number of presenters who rely of video content. The projector handles 24-frame progressive-scan video (24p) and regular-style video (60i). It can automatically identify the type of video that users input according to the number of frames being scanned.
Exceptionally quiet, the Canon LV-7575 projector's Silent Mode reduces fan noise to 36dB, while sensors inside the projector slow the fan even more in cooler temperatures. Presenters can achieve maximum connectivity via S-Video, Component, Composite, five BNC Terminals, DVI (Supports HDCP), and VGA Terminals, as well as inputs for a wide range of devices including DVD, HDTV, VCR, digital camcorder, and digital cameras.
Unique installation methods include Standard, Vertical (up/down), and Ceiling mount with optional LV-CL07 for projection onto a standard screen, ceiling, or floor. The LV-7575 projector weighs 19.2 lbs., which is less than Canon's previous comparable model.
Canon's new optional LV-NI02 Network Imager allows users to control and transfer presentations to the projector through the network; in effect pulling content from the server and delivering it to the projector.
The Canon LV-7575 LCD multimedia projector will be available late August at authorized Canon USA dealers, for a suggested list price of $8,999*.
