Canon U.S.A. Introduces Ultra-Portable Three LED Projector for Business and Home Entertainment Use

MELVILLE, N.Y., May 29, 2013 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, has introduced its first ultra-portable projector ideal for both business and home entertainment use – the Canon LE-5W Multimedia Projector. Featuring high image quality and bright, vibrant color projection, the affordable and lightweight LE-5W can clearly display everything from spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations to video games and movies through its wide range of interconnectivity and multiple connection ports.

With HDMI input and five different projection modes, the Canon LE-5W projector can easily be used to project high-quality movies, video games, and still-or-streamed images from PC’s, Blu-ray players, game consoles, HD streaming players, and digital cameras onto nearly any surface. The perfect projector to bring along for off-site presentations and client visits, professional and home use, or even camping trips, the LE-5W also enables “PC-less” smart presentations directly from a USB thumb drive, SD card, or its own built-in 1.5GB memory. Featuring an energy-saving, long-life 3LED technology, the unit’s three LED’s (RGB) have a remarkable 20,000 hour lifespan with an ECO mode that consumes 30 percent less energy than while running in Normal Mode.

“The enormous growth in the use of tablet PC’s and mobile devices has created demand for a new kind of high-quality, affordable projector that easily integrates with tablet PC’s and AV equipment while also being ultra-portable and easy-to-use,” noted Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon U.S.A. “The new Canon LE-5W Multimedia Projector is the perfect traveling companion for small business users who need to quickly and vividly share presentations or other visual information with clients.”

Multiple Projection Scenarios
The LE-5W Multimedia Projector employs 3LED technology to project vibrant and accurate colors. Because the LED light source for each primary color (red, green, and blue) is used without splitting light through a color wheel, images and video with pure, highly vibrant colors can be projected. Five different projection modes suit a diverse array of user needs:
• Presentation mode – this default mode matches the colors generally displayed by the screens of PCs and notebook computers.
• Standard mode – designed for optimal projection in rooms with minimal ambient light.
• Movie mode – delivers saturated colors, and is perfect for presentation in darkened rooms.
• sRGB mode – optimized for the colors as seen in a calibrated sRGB color space. This mode is best used for displaying graphics, AutoCAD diagrams, and other computer-calibrated presentations involving critical colors.
• User mode – enables customized settings of brightness, contrast, color, tint, temperature, and even sharpness.

Weighing just 3.5 lbs. and delivering 500 lumens of brightness with WXGA (1280 x 800) native resolution, a contrast ratio of 3000:1 and superb color fidelity, the LE-5W features a throw ratio (1.2:1) that achieves large-screen projections even in tight spaces. The Canon LE-5W is equipped with two built-in 2.5-watt stereo speakers, and a five-color wall-projection mode that makes practically any flat surface a suitable display screen. Also excellent for point-of-purchase digital signage applications, the LE-5W features a ¼ 20 Tripod Mounting Socket on its base, helping to make projection in tight locations without a tabletop possible.

The Canon LE-5W Multimedia Projector’s built-in USB thumb drive and SD card slots, and its own built-in 1.5GB memory, enable it to play multimedia files without peripheral components. Supported formats include: MJPEG, MPEG1/2/4, H.264, WMV, and RMVB video; JPEG and BMP photos; MP3, OGG, WMA, AAC, and WAV music; and Adobe PDF 1.2-1.7 and Microsoft Office (PowerPoint, Excel, Word) documents.

The Canon LE-5W powers-up in four seconds and shuts down in less than one second, and measuring just 9.76” (w) x 7.60” (d) x 2.16” (h), the ultra-portable projector can easily fit in a carrying bag for on-the-go scenarios. The projector features an integrated lens cover and built-in power adaptor, and sports a clean design with a scratch-resistant finish. The LE-5W is available in black or white to match the décor of any location.

The Canon LE-5W Multimedia Projector will be available in the Summer of 2013, for an estimated retail price of $799.00. For more information about the Canon LE-5W Multimedia Projector, including a full list of product specifications, visit www.usa.canon.com/projectors.
