Canon brings the best of LCD technology to the LV-8320 projector. It has been designed to deliver the brilliant image quality you expect from a Canon product. LCD technology allows the LV-8320 to be small, light and portable, while still giving it the capability to serve as a great installed unit.

The LV-8320 offers native WXGA widescreen resolution (1280 x 800) delivering clear, sharp video, diagrams and text in a 16:10 aspect ratio, meeting the increasing demand for wide screen displays. Compared to standard XGA resolution projectors, the LV-8320 offers a larger display range capable of projecting data produced on many widescreen laptops.

The LV-8320's 3000 lumens gives you the ability to deliver your presentations in a wider variety of venues in a broad range of lighting conditions. This projector will do the job in a classroom, office, boardroom or meeting room, in total darkness or through a range of moderate ambient light levels. A truly impressive 2000:1 contrast ratio results in deep blacks with depth and dimension. Another benefit of the LV-8320's AC lamp system is that it lasts up to 5,000 hours in Quiet Mode.

The 1.6x Optical Zoom lens of the LV-8320 gives you more options in where you can place the projector, based on the needs of your venue. You can also feel secure in selecting the right size screen for your room, knowing that the LV-8320's lens will give you the freedom to do so.

With the wide projection distance coverage of the LV-8320's lens, from 2.29 feet to 40.67 feet (screen sizes 30" to 300"), you will have outstanding flexibility in using this projector in small to moderately large spaces.

The LV-8320 is well equipped to make working with networks and other external sources possible, with a number of useful inputs and output terminals.

HDMI Input

The HDMI input on the LV-8230 allows you to connect the projector directly to a High Definition input source, including satellite or digital cable boxes, and Blu-Ray players, to project uncompressed video images, delivering true 1080p high definition. You also have the use of a MiniDIN4 input for the transfer of material from an S-video source.

Network-ready RJ-45 Port

To maximize the usability of the LV-8320, 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

Control the LV-8320 through a third-party system with the built-in RS-232 Serial Port.

Video Input & Output

The LV-8320 has a composite video input and analog RGB output for high-definition video projection and composite video monitoring.

Multiple Audio Inputs & Output

Two audio Mini-Jack stereo inputs and one output are found on the LV-8320 for relaying audio through external speakers. It provides the flexibility needed to play audio from a linked DVD or PC source. A mic input also gives the user the ability to narrate a presentation making use of the LV-8320's built-in speaker.

The high performance of the LV-8320 is matched with impressive durability in use and simplified maintenance. While delivering more, it costs you less in time and maintenance.

Longer Lamp Life

With up to 3,000 hours lamp life in Normal Mode and 5,000 hours in ECO Mode possible, the extended lamp life of the LV-8320 lowers operating costs and reduces maintenance.

Longer Air Filter Life

The high-performance three layer hybrid filters of the LV-8320 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. It offers significantly reduced maintenance time.

Easy Access Lamp

To make replacing the lamp quick and easy the LV-8320's 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 lamps and filters require changing.

Making the LV-8320 more convenient and easier to use were the goals of the Canon designers. You'll find controls and features made to let you concentrate on making better presentations.

Intelligent Lamp Dimming

When this feature is selected, the LV-8320 automatically adjusts the output of the lamp to match the brightness of the image being projected. Together with Color Shift Correction, which automatically adjusts the shift of color balance based on the projected image, power consumption is reduced, enhancing economy.

Quick Start and Quick Power Off

Quick Start and Quick Power Off makes it more convenient to operate the LV-8320 and helps 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-8320 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-8320 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-8320's on-screen menu is easy to navigate. For added convenience, choose from 21 languages for the menu display.

Built-in Speaker

Even if you don't have an external sound system to use, the 10W high output speaker of the LV-8320 delivers clear, well produced sound for venues of varying sizes.

Quiet Operation

Give your audience the silent treatment with the quietness of the LV-8320. In Normal mode the projector runs at 34dB and that drops to 29dB in Quiet mode, allowing all ears to be on the presentation.

Closed Captioning

If you are presenting to a hearing impaired audience or in a venue with a high level of ambient noise, the LV-8320 can deliver closed captioning to make any difficult to understand dialogue perfectly clear.
