Lightware Introduces Two 3-Pound Projectors

Pricing Starts at $1,795 By Denise Harrison
Lightware introduced two low-priced 3-pound microportable projectors. Based on Texas Instruments' Digital Light Processing technology, the XGA Legend LX-8 and SVGA Legend LS-8 are $2,695 and $1,795 respectively. Both come equipped with full multimedia capabilities.

With a footprint the size of a hardback novel and a depth of only 2.3 inches, the 800-lumen Legend series projectors slip into a bag with a laptop with room to spare. For further mobility, Lightware's laptop-free presentation solutions allow users to connect the Legend to a Handspring Visor PDA or AverEPack digital slide presenter to lighten the load.

Both the Legend LX-8 and LS-8 feature digital zoom, digital keystone correction and one 1-watt speaker. Full multimedia compatibility allows the Legend series to project from nearly any video source.

Additional features include video freeze-frame and HyperZoom, which allows presenters to enlarge tiny images on the presentation screen, making key messages and data points more memorable and impactful.

Both the Legend LX-8 and LS-8 include a wireless remote control, PS/2 and USB mouse cables, all standard video, audio and power cables and a soft carrying case.

Founded in 1995, Lightware Inc. delivers affordable, portable projection technology for large and small businesses, mobile professionals and the education and government markets. In December 2000, Lightware was acquired by Plus Corp. of America. Both organizations are owned by the $1.5 billion PLUS Group of Japan.

The Lightware Scout family of projectors is powered by the company's patented Optimum Projection Technology single-panel polysilicon LCD light engine. The Traveler and Legend families feature DLP technology. For more information, visit Lightware at
