Canon LV-8300


Canon ably demonstrates how a versatile portable projector doesn't have to be boring... or hideous

This is a very likeable projector. The connectors are spaced out nicely in the right place and all properly labelled, and everything is so easy to set up. The image is big and friendly. Even the look of the projector itself is big and friendly, like a...

Canon LV-8300 Multimedia Projector


The Canon LV-8300 is bright enough to stand up to ambient light and portable enough to bring with you.

Bright, high-quality image. Ample connection choices include analog and digital ports for PCs. WXGA (1,280 by 800).

Product Specifications

The native WXGA resolution of the LV-8300 is ideal for use with a widescreen computer. A 500:1 contrast ratio and 3000 lumens ensure crisp, clear presentations while auto features allow fast setup. The LV-8300 provides native WXGA resolution for users demanding high performance and images rich in clarity and detail. With the capacity to display in a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:10, this projector is fully compatible with widescreen PCs. LV-8300's ultra-bright 3000 lumens images can cut through even in well-lit conditions. The projector's 500:1 contrast ratio ensures that colors appear vivid and deep blacks are faithfully displayed. The versatility of the LV-8300 is demonstrated by the capability of its wide-angle 1.2x zoom lens, which can produce large images at relatively close distances to the projection screen. This ability to deliver over short throw distances means the projector can create a 100" diagonal image from just 2.9 meters.
