At work we regularly use Power point in order to deliver training presentations to staff and team members. In order to project the presentation to the room and put it on a big screen, we use a projector and a pull down screen. The projector emits the images on the computer or laptop screen on to the bigger white sheet or any background really, it is just that the white sheet is easier to read from, in order for the whole group to read from it.
==Price and availability==
This is an entry level projector and it has been around for a couple of years now so you can buy one for a small price of £199. The projector is a little bulkier than other models but it does a decent job for the money.
The projector measures 334mm x 101mm x 247mm and it has a weight of 2.98 KG so it is quite bulky as you can see from the dimensions. The projectors comes with all the various connections in order to use it with your computer or laptop. It has the brightness of 2500 lumens, it can project from 1.2 M to 11.1 M and this gives the screen size of 90 x 50cm - 646 x 404cm consecutively. The machine comes with a manual focus which I find very easy to operate. The projector comes with a built in speaker so if you have any sound in your presentation, this is played out loud.
The bulkiness of the machine is a pain when we have to cart it to different training centres, however it is very easy to hook up and use. The manual focus is easy to operate and it does not take much movement to get it back in focus. The lamp is bright and the bulb is designed to last for 6000 hours. In standby the machine uses only 1K but when it is in use it's eco friendly shell is shed and it is a bit of a juice drinker. The best thing about the projector though is that all images and presentations are projected to a high level. When it comes to moving images though, the clarity and the clearness is slightly compromised. We watched a video on youtube and it was fuzzy, you could not work out faces very well but you kind of got the idea of what was going on.
This is a decent little projector, although I bet Cannon are making some much more technologically advanced projectors now. The projector has much more plus points than negative ones and the fact it is so easy to use makes it definitely a winner for those who work with the computer illiterate.
The LV-8225 combines high performance with low running costs. WXGA resolution, 2500 lumens and up to 6000 hours lamp life make this projector ideal for today's business and educational environments.
Whatever your need, the LV-8225's 1.2x zoom projection lens assures you of great results in almost any circumstances - thanks to Canon's world class lens technologies. The LV-8225 delivers clear, distortion-free images even when projecting large images over short throw distances - with no loss of quality.
