Incorporating XGA resolution at 1024 x 768 pixels, and high brightness at 2000 lumens, excellent image quality can be achieved in all types of environments.

Weighing just 2.9 kilos and with an A4 sized footprint, the LV-7230 is compact and highly mobile. The control panel is clear, and with easy to read LED indicators, the projector is simple to use. The LV-7230 incorporates a number of features that make images clearer and easier to view. Progressive Scanning of images reduces screen flicker, particularly when projecting a video image, and the LV-7230 can also be used in blackboard mode for those occasions when the user cannot access a white screen. With the ability to connect a prompt monitor, the LV-7230 is a high quality professional projector that offers superb value for money.

Superior Quality Projection Lens
To ensure that image quality does not suffer as a result of the projectors compact size, the LV-7230s Canon lens contains two dual-sided aspherical elements. With 1.6x zoom, and a wide angle, the projector can be placed close to the screen without image distortion. A 100 inch image can be produced from a throwing distance of only 100 inches. To avoid trapezium distortion, which occurs when a projector cannot be placed perpendicular to the screen, the LV-7230 uses vertical Keystone Correction, making it easier to set up.

Brightness and resolution
The XGA resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels ensures excellent image quality, whilst the high efficiency 200 watt SHP lamp has a brightness of 2000 lumens. The lamp brightness can also be adjusted to one of three modes. Normal mode provides maximum brightness and can be used when performance is most important; in quiet mode power is reduced, primarily to reduce fan noise, this mode also increases the lamps life expectancy. Automatic mode is a composite of normal and quiet mode where the lamps output is adjusted according to the scene being displayed.
The user may select from eight image modes, including Blackboard mode. If no white screen is available in the classroom, a natural colour scheme can be obtained by directly projecting the video onto a blackboard.

Connection to an external monitor

When the user is making a presentation before a large audience, it quite often means that they have their back to the presentation. The LV-7230 allows the addition of an external monitor through an RGB output. The added monitor may be used by the presenter as a prompt monitor.

Progressive scanning
Screen flicker is greatly reduced as the projector utilises progressive scanning of images. Each line of the frame is read in a single pass, meaning that the images are smoother and diagonal lines and titles are sharper. In addition, the LV-7230 is able to convert interlaced video signals (which are the cause of screen flicker) in composite, S-Video, 480i and 575i format into smooth, progressive scans. Progressive scanning is particularly useful for those who wish to use their projector in combination with HDTV and DVD.
