Canon Ultra-short Throw 3D Projector
Canon introduced the LV-8235 Ultra-Short Throw 3D Projector, capable of projecting a 2-meters (80") picture from a distance of only 32 cm (1 ft). the LV-8235 can sit on a table or be mounted horizontally or vertically on a wall, ceiling or floor and is available now for 1799 $ in the USA.
With a high brightness rating of 2500 lumens and a maximum display size of 110 inches, the LV-8235 UST delivers its crisp imagery in the WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution 16:10 aspect ratio, which eliminates cropping or distortion when presenting HD video or graphics created on widescreen laptops. This is Canon's first DLP projector using a 0.65" single DLP chip.
Utilizing a newly developed ultra-short focus mirror optical system, this new model directs the images it generates through the projection lens and onto a built-in reflection mirror for loop-back through a projection window. This configuration makes it possible to use a table or a floor as a projection screen. The ultra-short throw capability also allows users to install the projector in a wide range of compact positions, including -- through the use of approved brackets and attachments -- horizontal or vertical wall or ceiling mounts.
Examples of ultra-short throw applications include cost-effective 3D or 2D rear-projection in museums or arcades, or digital signage use in which store-front product promotions can be projected onto the sidewalk or the floor of a shopping mall to attract the attention of people walking by.
3D glasses would need to be purchased separately and are not sold through Canon U.S.A.
