"For educators and economy-minded users, the introduction of these new portable multimedia LCD projectors offers greater value than ever before with no compromise in picture quality."
The Canon LV-8225 delivers native WXGA resolution (1280x800) for widescreen 16:10 images. Rated at 2,500 lumens, it is designed for full-screen display of diagrams, spreadsheets, and video.
At 4,000 lumens of brightness, the new Canon LV-7490 offers XGA resolution (1024x768), making it suited for larger environments and those with higher levels of ambient light. The Canon LV-7390, LV-7295, and LV-7290 LCD projectors are versatile XGA-resolution models with brightness levels of 3,000, 2,600, and 2,200 lumens, respectively.

All models are expected to ship in early April and each is backed by Canon's Projector Protection Program, a free service program that provides a loaner projector of equal or greater value to the end user in the event their projector needs to be repaired.
