Canon brings the best of LCD technology to the LV-7490 projector. This projector has been designed and specified to deliver the impressive image quality you expect from a Canon product. LCD technology allows the LV-7490 to be small, light and portable, while still giving it the capability to serve as a great installation unit.

Native XGA resolution (1024 x 768) means that you will have clear, sharp video, diagrams and text. The LV-7490 also supports WXGA resolution from a widescreen laptop or PC through high quality compression. It's the perfect pairing for both an XGA and WXGA computer.

The LV-7490s 4000 lumens gives you the ability to deliver your presentations in a wider variety of venues in a broader range of lighting conditions. From classrooms to offices and from medium sized boardrooms to hotel meeting rooms, this projector will step up to the job. Theres little to worry about if you cant have a completely dark environment as you will still see bright, clearly visible images, even in moderate levels of ambient light. One reason is that in addition to the 4000 Lumens brightness the LV-7490 has a 2000:1 contrast ratio, ensuring that your presentation shows deep blacks and bright whites.

Another major benefit of the LV-7490s AC lamp system is that it lasts up to 6,000 hours in Quiet Mode.

With the 1.2x optical zoom lens of the LV-7490, you will be able to locate the projector in just the right spot in the room and pick the best screen size for the classroom, office or meeting room in which you're working.

Taking full advantage of the LV-7490's wide projection distance coverage, from 4.59 feet to 41.66 feet (screen sizes 40" - 300"), is possible thanks to this versatile lens. It gives outstanding flexibility for use in small or moderately large spaces.

Simplified maintenance through enhanced durability is a hallmark of the LV-7490. In saving you both time and money, it offers added value long after the purchase.

Longer Lamp Life

With up to 4,000 hours lamp life in Normal Mode and 6,000 hours in ECO Mode possible, the extended lamp life of the LV-7490 lowers operating costs and reduces maintenance.

Longer Air Filter Life

The high-performance three-layer hybrid filter of the LV-7490 can last up to 5,500 hours in ECO Mode. Consisting of perforated metal, urethane and metal mesh, anti-dust performance is greatly improved and filter life is dramatically lengthened over that of single layer electrostatic filters, offering significantly reduced maintenance time.

Easy Access Lamp

To make replacing the lamp quick and easy, the LV-7490's lamp is located on the top of the projector. There is no need to move the projector, even if it is ceiling mounted.

To further aid in maintenance, a replacement counter indicates when the lamp and filter require changing.

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.

Control Panel

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.

Tab-Style Menu

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.

Built-in Speaker

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.

The LV-7490 connects to a variety of devices, including laptop and desktop computers, DVD players, and digital cameras and camcorders.

Network-ready RJ-45 Port

To maximize the usability of the LV-7490, the built-in RJ-45 port enables centralized control and monitoring from a networked PC. This makes it simple for an A/V team to operate ceiling mounted installed projectors from a remote PC, allowing fewer personnel to cover a larger service area.

RS-232 Serial Port

The LV-7490's RS-232 Serial Port allows for local control of the LV-7490 through a third-party control system.

Multiple Audio Inputs & Output

Two audio Mini-Jack stereo inputs and one output are found on the LV-7490 for relaying audio through external speakers. It provides the flexibility needed to play audio from a linked DVD or PC source.

Quiet Operation

The quietness of the LV-7490 in operation ensures that all your audience's attention will be on your presentation. In Normal mode the projector runs at 35dB, and that drops to only 29dB in Quiet mode.

Closed Captioning

For a presentation in a venue with a great deal of ambient noise, or for one given to an audience which is hearing impaired, the LV-7490 has a closed captioning option. It will make any difficult to understand dialogue clearly readable.
