Canon Goes High End With 5500 Lumen Projector That Can Pull Presentations off a Server

Canon announced the LV-7575, an LCD projector specified at 5500 ANSI lumens, 8900:1 contrast ratio and XGA resolution. Canon also put its lens expertise to use with a standard 1.3X Canon Optics lens and four optional high quality interchangeable lenses including the Ultra Wide Angle, Wide Angle Zoom, Long Focus Zoom, and Ultra Long Focus Zoom.

This projector uses 10-bit digital video processing, 2-3/2-2 Pull-down, HDCP for HDTV and HD source viewing and playback, and 1:1 – 10.0 Power Lens Shift.

The LV-7575 projector features multiple projection modes: Standard (PC, Video), High Contrast (PC), Cinema (Video), Custom mode (PC/Video). 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.

And, hey, this is nice: Canon’s new optional LV-NI02 Network Imager allows users to control and transfer presentations to the projector through the network, basically pulling content from the server and delivering it to the projector.

The Canon LV-7575 LCD will be available late this month with MSRP of $8,999.
