Canon has debuted five new midrange and entry-level LCD classroom projectors, including four for $800 or less.

The new LV-7490 features the highest brightness of the five projectors, at 4,000 lumens, and offers an XGA resolution (1,024 x 768 pixels). The LV-8225, with a brightness of 2,500 lumens, is the highest-resolution model of the new batch at 1,280 x 800 pixels (WXGA).

The remaining three models--the LV-7390, LV-7295, and LV-7290--are XGA-resolution projectors. The LV-7390 has a brightness of 3,000 lumens, the LV-7295 2,600 lumens, and the LV-7290 2,200 lumens.

Other features common to all of the models include:

  • WIred network connectivity via RJ-45;
  • Automatic setup;
  • Automatic vertical keystone correction;
  • 1.2x manual zoom lens; and
  • Up to 5,500-hour filter life.

The LV-7490 has an estimated lamp life of 5,000 hours in "quiet mode," while the rest offer a lamp life of up to 6,000 hours.

All of the new models are expected to ship in April. The high-brightness LV-7490 will sell for $1,099. The WXGA LV-8225 will be available for $799. The rest--the LV-7390, LV-7295, and LV-7290--will sell for $799, $699, and $599, respectively. Further information can be found here.
