You want a portable LCD projector to be heavy on the lumens and
light on the ounces. The Lightware Viewpoint offers 270 ANSI-Lumen
brightness, so you can use it in a lighted room, and it weighs
only 9.4 pounds. The size of a notebook, the Viewpoint is easy
to tote around for presentations.
The Viewpoint's optics system condenses the light path and includes
a pop-up lens for what Lightware terms "Pop and Play"
setup. The lens folds down when not in use, making it easier to
carry. The projector provides full-screen NTSC, PAL and SECAM
video capabilities, and a 3-watt/channel stereo amplifier and
built-in speakers. It also features a foldaway carrying handle
and a 6.5-inch LCD panel with 640x480 resolution. The Viewpoint's
long-life 400-watt EVD halogen lamp allows it to fill an 80-inch
diagonal screen in a lighted room. It needs one cable for hookup.
The Viewpoint has zoom and pan features, and you can freeze a
frame when using TV input. It includes on-screen menu and help
functions, autosaves adjustments, and supports S-Video, VGA and
VESA video standards.
