High Image QualityNative Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080) produces a 16:9 aspect ratio picture for a 320-inch display area – larger than XGA, with a higher pixel density for a sharper, clearer picture. The projector’s single-chip Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology achieves a high brightness of 4200 lumens and contrast ratio of 8000:1* so clarity, detail and color are strong, whether projecting graphics, pictures, text or video – even in challenging lighting conditions.
Compact and LightweightAt just 7.5 pounds, the LV-HD420 is both light and compact in design so it can be easily moved from one room to the next. A built-in 10W speaker removes the need to bring separate sound equipment.
Versatile ConnectivityThe LV-HD420 features two HDMI ports, enabling 1080p, high-definition transmission of video and audio. MHL** is supported for convenient, immediate projection from handheld devices like smartphones and tablets, providing opportunities for added collaboration, interaction and sharing during presentations. Comprehensive connections also cover inputs for RS-232 and RJ-45 control, a USB type A port for power supply and USB Mini B for service, as well as standard RCA video and audio input and output.
For additional network management control and integration into existing systems, the LV-HD420 is also compatible with PJLink™ and Crestron RoomView, allowing monitoring of lamp hours and usage to reduce maintenance and downtime. It also supports e-Control for remote connection via internet browser using the projector’s IP address to power on or off, adjust settings and much more.
Peace of MindThe LV-HD420 is backed by Canon’s Lamp Based Projector Warranty and Lamp Limited Warranty. The projector is guaranteed to be free from defects for 3 years and the Lamp for 120 days. In addition, Canon USA’s Advanced Warranty Exchange Service Program*** provides you with enhanced warranty service in addition to traditional "mail-in" repair service.
** Only one HDMI port is equipped with MHL. The maximum upward shift and the maximum horizontal shift cannot be used simultaneously. When standing the projector straight up or down, lamp life may be shortened. When motion blur reduction is activated, brightness will be affected.

Up to 4200 Lumens and 8000:1 Contrast Ratio*1 Delivers Bright, Engaging Images
This projector projects bright 4200 lumen images with up to an 8000:1 contrast ratio*1 that helps ensure deep blacks, bright whites and outstanding color. The results are images with crisp depth and dimension, and great color accuracy, which is critical to those with discerning needs.
Native Full HD Resolution (1920 x 1080)
Canon’s Full HD resolution brings bright, true widescreen display of intricately detailed HD video content and still images with outstanding color richness to midsize room installations in high resolution Full HD (1920 x 1080) at a competitive price. Content is projected without compression. Widescreen graphics, text and other visual content from laptops and desktop computers are shown in accurate proportions, just as it appears on most monitor screens. Widely used and highly popular, Full HD resolution makes this projector especially suited to applications where native content being shown is already in Full HD resolution.
This projector utilizes Single-chip Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology which is a widely utilized projection technology that creates natural and lifelike images. The DLP technology utilizes a 6-segment color wheel along with a reflective Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) to produce video and images with high brightness. The resulting high-resolution video and images maintain the details inherent in what you are showing.
Flexible Image Quality Adjustments
Multiple Image Modes
Image Modes provide different variations of color reproduction characteristics suitable for the image type and projection environment. They include:
Standard: Ideal for bright rooms, and when using content from computer screens or motion picture content.
sRGB: Complies with the sRGB standards and is intended to optimize the projection of photographs from sRGB compatible digital cameras.
Movie/Cinema: Intended for richly colorful videos or images.
User1/User2: Two user-defined modes that make it simple for users to customize and store up to two unique image modes. This allows multiple presenters to share the projector while keeping the image settings optimized for diverse subject matters or sources. In this mode, you may also make advanced color adjustments through the management of the six colors (R/G/B/C/M/Y) on the color wheel.
Screen Color Correction Mode
When projecting to a non‐white, colored surface, colors of the projected image may appear different from the original image. The Screen Color feature helps to correctly match the colors of projected images to the color of many projected surfaces.
Versatile Connectivity – HDMI, MHL*2, USB Type A, USB Mini B, RJ-45, RS-232, RCA and Audio Input/Output
Connections include: HDMI and an HDMI/MHL*2 connection that simplifies connecting portable devices for high-definition playback.
Industry-standard control and networking inputs include a USB mini B port for service, a network-ready RJ-45 port that enables authorized users to manage and control multiple projectors from any PC on a network (Gigabit data transfer speeds are supported), an RS-232 serial connection for monitoring the projector locally through a third-party control system, a USB Type A port to be used as a power supply terminal and a mini-jack that provides a trigger for screen operation.
Network Management including PJLink™, Crestron Connectivity and e-Control supported
Compatibility with Crestron helps ensure seamless integration into many systems or infrastructures and smooth network management. Support for PJLink™ also makes it possible to control and monitor the projector over a network – this feature is ideal for observing lamp hours, usage and much more.
This projector is also equipped with e-Control, which allows the user to connect with the projector when using HTML via an internet browser. By typing the IP address of the projector into browser, users can connect and access information such as On/Off functions, Source settings, Blank, Inputs and more.
Compact Size and Flexible Placement Options
