Canon - LV-S4


There was a time - not so long ago - when you'd have been hard-pressed to find a genuine 'budget projector', but the Canon LV-S4 fits the bill nicely as it sells for about £655 including ...

Canon has delivered a cheap, effective LCD projector that caters for a significant sector of the market. Unfortunately, like so many items at the lower reaches of a product range, you can see that corners have been cut to save cash.

Product Specifications

The LV-S4 micro-portable projector provides high quality performance at an affordable price. Ultra-lightweight and easy to use, it offers enhanced image quality and complete multimedia connectivity. Weighing just 2.3kg and with a footprint smaller than an A4 notepad, the ultra portable LV-S4 is as easy to carry as most laptops. Yet this tiny projector makes no compromise on quality - with 1500 lumens of brightness, your presentations are clear and easy to view, even in daylight. And with the crisp, vibrant SVGA quality resolution (800 x 600 pixels), you can be assured of bold, rich colors and sharp focus every time you turn it on. The projector's original Canon 1.2x zoom lens is specially designed to deliver superior image quality in a small lens, without any color bleeding or distortion. It also offers flexible placement of the projector, while the wide angle of the lens delivers a large image projection even when the LV-S4 is placed near the projection surface. If the projector is placed on a tilt, vertical Keystone Correction corrects the resulting image distortion. Quiet Mode ensures there's no unwanted noise when you're giving presentations or watching movies. Distracting flicker is no concern either, as the LV-S4 uses superior progressive scanning technology to create its images, resulting in smooth movement, clear diagonals and sharp text, without the flickering commonly found with conventional interlaced scanning technology. Even if the input signal is interlaced, the LV-S4 can up-convert to progressive scanning. Powerful presentations are a breeze with the easy-to-use LV-S4. The slim-line remote handset gives simple push button control, while the Automatic Multi-Scan System (AMSS) and Auto PC Adjust ensure the picture and resolution are automatically configured according to the type of input - so there's no need for complex adjustments. The RGB Output port provides connection to an external monitor for viewing presentations on-screen, allowing you to face your audience and view the images simultaneously. When using Audio-Visual equipment such as a DVD player or VCR with the LV-S4, just 'connect and project'. A high quality component video connection provides improved picture quality and supports a wide range of signals. There's also an optional SCART adaptor cable, ideal for connecting home cinema devices.
