A group of five new projectors have been revealed by electronics manufacturer Canon.

The company announced that all of the new devices use its DLP BrilliantColor display technology, which the firm says enables them to deliver rich and realistic colour.

Canon also stated that the five new projectors will provide users with 3,000 lumens of brightness, as well as a 2,300:1 contrast ratio for crisp blacks with depth and dimension. The projectors also have filter-free operation and in their economy mode can last for up to 6,000 hours of lamp life.

The company added that all of the new projectors have been specifically designed for the education and corporate small office markets and they have been described by Canon as being "competitively priced" compared to rival products in the market.

Perhaps the most impressive of the five new Canon projectors is the LV-WX300 Multimedia Projector, which has a resolution of 1280x800, while the LV-X300ST Short Throw Multimedia Projector provides 1024x768 resolution.

Yuichi Ishizuka, president and chief operating officer of Canon USA, said: "The addition of these five new portable projectors enhances our ability to meet the needs of diverse and growing presentation markets and applications.

"Colour reproduction and image quality is paramount in all Canon technologies, and these new projectors offer our customers a high-quality, portable solution to support their presentation needs."

Other projectors sold by Canon include the REALiS SX6000 D Pro AV, which features Canon's AISYS-enhanced LCOS technology and interchangeable genuine Canon lenses.
