Available now from Canon Australia , the XEED X700 portable multimedia projector from Canon combines unique technologies that not only project quality images, but also make this projector highly compact and very affordable.

To get the best quality and picture resolution, the XEED X700 portable multimedia projector uses liquid crystal on silicon (LCOS) panels to project smooth, faithful images without the unwanted ‘lattice effect’, while the native XGA resolution (1024 x 768 pixels) provides the definition required for clear, crisp text and moving images.

The ultra bright 4000 lumen projection of the XEED X700 portable multimedia projector ensures projected images remain clearly visible in bright light and large venues. The new AC lamp offers increased efficiency and longer lamp life, while Canon’s advanced Aspectual Illumnination System (AISYS) optical system optimises the projector’s light path to achieve powerful output from a compact, lightweight unit.

This AISYS optical system also eliminates the contrast limitations of traditional LCOS projectors - the result being a 1000:1 contrast ratio which gives lifelike colour tones and deep blacks that faithfully reproduce the source image.

The XEED X700 portable multimedia projector's outstanding picture is complemented by the unit's near silent fan operation, which in Quiet Mode is reduced to just 31dBA to keep the room free from distraction. Furthermore, progressive scan display is supported for flicker-free moving images to also lessen distraction.

The motorised Canon 1.7x wide-angle zoom lens in the XEED X700 portable multimedia projector projects large images from short throwing distances, enabling flexible projector placement. The powered lens can be operated from both the control panel and remote control handset and a coating prevents ghosting and flare.

Set up of teh XEED X700 is as simple as its operation. The auto focus detects the projector’s distance from the screen and focuses the image accordingly, while the auto screen colour correction function detects the colour of the projection surface and optimises settings accordingly. Furthermore, vertical keystone correction is automatic, thus eliminating trapezium distortion of the image.
