Convenience and ease of use were the goal in the creation of the LV-7490, and its controls and features let you focus on making the best presentations possible.
Quick Start and Quick Power Off
Quick Start and Quick Power Off make it more convenient to operate the LV-7490 and help to lengthen lamp life. With the push of a button this projector will quickly spring into action for a spur-of-the-moment presentation, or shut down to be packed for use in another meeting room.
Auto Setup Function
Setting up the LV-7490 is both quick and easy with the Auto Setup function. Through a single button you can set Auto Input, Auto PC and Auto Keystone correction.
With the projector placed on a flat surface, the engagement of Auto Setup will employ sensors which will detect the tilt of the projector in relation to the screen, automatically correcting for any keystone distortion — up to +/- 20 degrees vertically. Of course, keystone correction can be adjusted manually as well up to +/- 30 degrees.
Easy to use and clear controls for volume and menu mean that the focus of a presenter will be on the presentation, not on running the projector. The LV-7490 makes it simple to switch between input sources at the touch of a button. Buttons which are familiar in look and feel to those of printers and copy machines fall easily to hand. For added convenience, the wireless IR remote control can be used.
The clear to read, white text on black background of the LV-7490’s on-screen menu is easy to navigate. For added convenience, choose from 21 languages for the menu display.
Multiple Image Modes
Users can select from multiple Image Modes to ensure content is optimally displayed.
Presentation – bright setting that emphasizes contrast overall - most suitable for presentations (PowerPoint, etc).
Standard – setting that provides standard easy-to-see images.
High Contrast – provides clear, easy-to-see images in brighter environments.
Cinema – setting best suited for movie projection (DVD and HDTV) as it excels at providing gradations of dark portions of images.
Blackboard (Greenboard) – reproduces close hues when projecting on classroom blackboards.
Colorboard – reproduces close hues when projecting on colored walls.
In addition, on the image quality adjustment menu users can manually perform more detailed settings such as contrast, hue and brightness and then save those settings to memory in one of 4 User Image Modes.
Even if you don't have an external sound system to use, the 10W high output speaker of the LV-7490 delivers clear, well produced sound for venues of varying sizes.
Love it but...
We just bought this projector and right out of the box I can tell you it is great. The only problem we have found is that we were spoiled by our previous Canon project because it had every connection I believe possible for the time I bought it, around 2003. I was use to having a DVI, and in this day and age every projector should have a HDMI as well, this projector has neither. Thank goodness for adapters. We use this projector as our home Theater projection and with 4000 lumens, in a room with the lights on, there is no problem except needing adapters to connect to your newer computers.
