New LV-7355 and LV-7350 ultra-compact projectors from Canon U.S.A., Inc., a subsidiary of Canon Inc. (NYSE: CAJ), allow users to project a 100-inch image from 9.2 feet, which is about 4-feet closer than Canon’s previous model. This advantage enhances the versatility of these projectors, making it easier for users to display bigger, brighter presentations in more compact environments, such as offices, classrooms and even home theaters.

Featuring native XGA resolution, a Canon exclusive and industry first 1.5X motorized ultra-wide zoom lens, a wireless option and a media card option, the LV-7355 and LV-7350 are additions to the Canon presentation product line of cameras and projectors.

The LV-7355 and LV-7350 can add extra brightness in any situation with the Turbo Bright System, developed by Canon. At the touch of a button, the system boosts the brightness of the LV-7355 to 2,200 ANSI lumens, and the LV-7350 to 1,800 ANSI lumens, without increasing power consumption or sacrificing lamp life. Optical quality and performance is ensured, even under the most demanding conditions.

Both projectors also feature Horizontal and Vertical Keystone Correction, which keeps images perfectly proportioned, flexible image adjustment with 12 customized settings, as well as Canon’s world-renowned optics to ensure outstanding clarity, contrast, and color reproduction.

Advanced connectivity makes the LV-7355 and LV-7350 even more convenient. Equipped with a DVI-I interface for either digital or analog RGB input, both models can hook up to two computers simultaneously. Component, S-Video and RCA terminals allow users the freedom to connect to virtually any input device. The Canon-exclusive LV-WI01 optional Wireless Imager makes wireless transfer of screen images from laptop or PC to projector easy, while the optional Media Card Imager, (LV-MC01) lets users present PC-free. Remote control provides access to key functions like digital zoom, image freeze, and more.

The ultra-portable Canon LV-7355 and LV-7350 weighs just 9.4 pounds, and runs at a relatively quiet 36dB. An optional ceiling mount (LV-CL05)is also available.

The Canon LV-7355 and LV-7350 display images in a variety of resolution modes to ensure a suitable match to the input source. They include Native XGA resolution (1,024 x 768 pixels) in addition to SXGA (Compression), SVGA and VGA.

Additional Features include the first multimedia projectors to offer a 1.5X motorized zoom. Image Select feature with 12 customized settings for selecting a display that best suits the source image. Sharpness, contrast, gamma and other variables are easily adjusted and saved using on-screen menus. Digital Keystone Correction gives a square undistorted image for angles up to +/- 20 degrees vertical and +/- 10 degrees horizontal. Optional Wireless Imager for wireless data transfer, and optional Media Card Imager for presentations without a PC.

The Canon LV-7355 and LV-7350 will be available in September at authorized Canon dealers, with a suggested list price of $4499.00 and $3499.00 respectively.
