New Canon LCD projectors
While not they're not coming to PMA, Canon has also used the day to debut three new compact projectors. Native resolution on the line is limited to XGA (1024x768), but SXGA and UXGA (1280x1024 and 1600x1200) are supported in compressed format, and the high-end LV-7265 supports DVI-I input in addition to the component, VGA, composite and S-Video options of the LV-X7 and the LV-7260. The projectors are otherwise fairly similar, the main differences being brightness and contrast: the X7 has 1,500 lumens and 500:1 contrast, whereas the 7260 has 2,000 lumens and 600:1 contrast, and the 7265 pushes to 2,500 lumens. The products will be out in early March, at prices of $999, $1,199 and $1,499.
