Consumer electronics brand, Canon, has issued a number of updated models to its LV range of ultra-portable projectors, offering XGA resolutions that create sharper image details and bright clear projections.

The models being added to the range include the LV-7290, LV-7295, LV-7390, LV-7490 and LV-8225 projectors, all of which offer XGA resolutions, except for the 8225, which projects WXGA widescreen resolutions.

Upon the release of the projectors, Canon's visual communication product and solutions director, Julian Rutland, said, "The energy efficient devices have an extended lamp life of up to 6,000 hours, filters that boast a service life of up to 5,500 hours and a power consumption of less than 1W in standby mode."

The most affordable model - the LV-7290 - provides brightness of up to 2,200 lumens, while the LV-7390 has a 3,000 lumens output and networking capabilities. The brightest projector in the range is the LV-7490, which is capable of generating 4,000 lumens, making it ideally suited for larger venues or where there are greater levels of ambient light. The WXGA-capable LV-8225 has a resolution of 1280x800 pixels.

All models come equipped with a wide-angle 1.2x zoom projection lens and a 10W speaker and will be available in the UK from April.
