Canon has released a new multimedia classroom projector that can produce an 80-inch image at a distance of about a foot from the screen.

The new LV-8235 UST is an ultra-short-throw projector based on a single stereoscopic 3D-ready 0.65-inch DLP chip. With its 0.19:1 throw ratio (distance:image length), it can produce an image ranging from 60 inches to 110 inches (diagonal) from a distance of just 8 inches to 18 inches.

The LV-8235 UST offers a WXGA resolution (1,280 x 800), a brightness of 2,500 lumens, and a contrast ratio of 2,000:1.

Other features of the LV-8235 UST include:

  • Closed captioning support;
  • ±5 degree vertical keystone correction;
  • Integrated 10 watt mono speaker;
  • 3D sync for use with active-shutter 3D goggles;
  • Color correction for projecting on a variety of surfaces, including blackboards;
  • 28 dB operating in economy mode;
  • Wired LAN connectivity (for control and monitoring); and
  • Lamp life of up to 3,000 hours in economy mode.

The projector measures 12.6" (w) x 6.7" (h) x 15.2" (d) and weighs in at 13.7 pounds.

AV inputs on the LV-8235 UST include HDMI, RGB/component (mini D-sub 15-pin), S-video, composite video, stereo RCA, and stereo minijack. AV outputs include RGB monitor out (mini D-sub 15-pin) and a stereo minijack. Networking and control ports include LAN (RJ-45) and RS-232C.

Canon LV-8235 UST is available now for $1,799 with a three-year warranty and Canon's free Projector Protection Program, which provides a loaner unit when the original projector is in for repair. Further information can be found on Canon's site.
