New Canon portable projector range

Canon LV-WU360 Portable Projector
Canon LV-WU360 Portable Projector
Canon announces the expansion of its portable projector range, with three new long-life, lamp-based projectors

United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, 25th June 2019 – Canon Europe today announces the expansion of its range of portable projectors, including three new high-brightness, low-maintenance lamp-based models - the LV-WU360, LV-WX370 and LV-X350. Equipped with an innovative lamp unit, these models have an exceptionally long lifespan for a portable projector and are designed to reduce the total cost of ownership for businesses and schools. Delivering faithful image reproduction at high brightness with enhanced connectivity options, these new projectors achieve powerful optical performance to bring a broad range of content to life.

The Canon LV-WU360, LV-WX370 and LV-X350

Compact, yet powerful

Weighing 3.3kg and under, Canon’s expanded line-up of projectors are highly portable to support the needs of education and sales professionals who regularly need to relocate devices. These lightweight, yet powerful, models produce between 3500 and 3700 lumen brightness for vivid images in any lighting. Employing three LCD panels, the LV-WU360, LV-WX370 and LV-X350 produce rich, true-to-life 10-bit colours and deep blacks to create detailed images and eliminate colour break up. Typically, LCD projectors are susceptible to gridlines, however both the LV-WU360 and LV-WX370 utilise a micro-lens to boost the brightness of the light and make the appearance of gridlines almost invisible.

Additionally, they have a projection range of 30” to 300”, capable of meeting the requirements for small-to-large meeting rooms. Despite the compact size of these devices, they have a range of image adjustment features that simplify set-up and ensure perfect geometry of projected images. With automatic keystone adjustment, users can quickly resolve the keystone effect; while the manual setting delivers four-corner keystone correction, offering even more refined adjustment especially when installed at an angle, or off axis, such as in confined spaces. Both the LV-WX370 and LV-X350 also make use of geometry correction to ensure the image retains its desired shape when projecting onto a concave or convex screen or surface.

Designed for versatility
The LV-WU360, LV-WX370 and LV-X350 all produce a range of resolutions from WUXGA at 1920 x 1200, WXGA at 1280 x 800 and XGA at 1024 x 768, respectively, providing a solution for all budgets and IT infrastructures. The LV-WU360 is Canon’s first portable model delivering WUXGA resolution for sharp images, with crisp text and smooth graphics for an unbeatable visual experience. Offering a broad range of connectivity options from the control terminal, including LAN, two different types of USB, and two HDMI ports, users can show a greater variety of content including presentations, images and video on these models. With the USB ports and helpful user interface, content can be easily projected if the laptop has no video output terminal or from a memory stick without the need for a laptop, for simplified set up. Audio output is now possible directly from the projector, thanks to the 10w speaker which means sound can be played without the need for additional equipment. For even greater portability, all three projectors have a standard, fast and instant cooling function – allowing the device to be instantly powered down and transported to the next location.

Long-life, low maintenance projector
These models are incredibly low maintenance thanks to the robust filter composition and long lamp life of 20,000 hours, affording users the same longevity as laser models at a fraction of the cost. Should replacements or repairs be required, the intuitive design allows for easy access to these elements even when the projector is ceiling mounted. Likewise, the LCD panels are now manufactured from inorganic materials to reduce maintenance requirements. The expanded range also uses a newly designed lamp unit, with an improved driving system to increase the power supply efficiency and reduce energy consumption. For peace of mind, the LV-WU360, LV-WX370 and LV-X350 all come with a three-year return-to-base warranty and a free lamp replacement promotion. This offers up to three free replacement lamps within a three-year period should a fault occur (registration required) to mitigate down time and reduce total cost of ownership1.

Pricing and availability
The Canon LV-WU360, LV-WX370 and LV-X350 are available from August 2019 with the following RSPs:
  • LV-WU360: £820.80/€960.00
  • LV-WX370: £547.20/€640.00
  • LV-X350: £513.00/€600.00

Canon UK & Ireland Headquarters moving to Stockley Park, Uxbridge

Canon UK & Ireland Headquarters to Stockley Park, Uxbridge
Canon UK & Ireland Headquarters (HQ) to move from Reigate and co-locate with Canon Europe, Middle East & Africa HQ based in Uxbridge

London, 6 June 2019 – Canon, a leader in imaging solutions, today announced that it will be relocating its UK & Ireland (UK&I) HQ currently based in Woodhatch, Reigate, to Stockley Park, Uxbridge where the company’s EMEA HQ has been based for the past 18 years.

Moves toward Business Process Outsource (BPO) model for some functions

The announcement follows a comprehensive review of the Canon UK&I business, resulting in a decision to address efficiency improvements by proposing an outsourced model (BPO) for selected departments in Finance, Business Operations and Customer Services. The outsourcing will mean that the Canon UK Reigate facility will have significant over capacity for future requirements. Co-locating the Canon UK&I HQ with the Canon EMEA HQ will give the company the opportunity to right size its UK & Ireland operational footprint and facilities to match the size of its workforce.

The BPO model will help the company focus on core business activities (sales & marketing) whilst ensuring a better focus on customer centricity, with operational standardisation and improved technology and processes leading to faster customer response times.

Yusuke Mizoguchi, Managing Director of Canon UK&I commented, “Canon UK&I is one of the most important National Sales Organisation’s (NSO) in the Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) region and will continue to retain its own identity, with a very clear focus on sales and marketing for the UK&I markets. Given that the EMEA HQ has been based in the UK for many years, it makes strategic sense to seek out opportunities to create a more streamlined operation whilst increasing our overall competitiveness.” He adds, “Having a joint location will enable us to look for opportunities to share resources and run a more efficient organisation which will also create some broader group opportunities for some of our UK employees.”

It is anticipated that the full transition to the Stockley Park premises could take up to 12 months and will be implemented using a carefully planned phased approach to ensure business continuity. The move underscores Canon’s full commitment to the UK as a base for its EMEA Headquarters and to having a strong and ongoing UK & Ireland sales presence.
