New generations of projectors bring improved capabilities beyond just brighter output and flexible connectivity, although that''s on tap too. Canon recently expanded its line of lower-cost LCD multimedia projectors by adding the ability to better work with whiteboards. The new projectors—LV-8300, LV-7375, and LV-7370—offer a Whiteboard mode that is said to dramatically reduce reflective white spots when projecting on a whiteboard. The 3000-lumen-output LV-8300 is claimed as the first-ever native WXGA-resolution (1280x800) widescreen, which means that it can output at that resolution without the need for any distorting compression. The LV-7370 has 3000 lumens, and the LV-7375 has 3500.
