Portable LCD Projector High Performance

The ultimate portable LCD projector - one-third smaller and lighter than any competitive product - has been introduced by Lightware, the technology leader in ultra-portables. About the size of a laptop computer and available for around $3,000,* Scout is the ultimate business projector for anyone who delivers presentations or gives training.

With a volume of less than 300 cubic inches and 500 lumens, Lightware's new projector provides customers the luxury of having a high quality projected image without the weight, size or cost traditionally associated with high performance projectors. For the first time, traveling presenters can pack-up a projector and a hand-held computer together in a complete package for under eight pounds.

"Scout revolutionizes the meaning of portability," said Mark Reed, president and CEO, Lightware. "You can slip our projector and a laptop into a single travel bag that fits easily under an airplane seat or into an overhead compartment."

Reed predicts that Scout's combination of low price and light weight will encourage companies to arm their sales forces and marketing teams with personal projectors, and that companies and schools will find a wide variety of new applications for this product.

"We have created a product that could transform what has been a niche segment into a huge consumer market," explains Duane Benson, director of marketing, Lightware. "We knew that meant coming up with a lightweight, easy-to-use and affordable projector -- essentially a projector that anyone can afford and easily use. Lightware's objective is to make products that accommodate the needs of the largest customer set."

Scout projects high quality VGA through XGA images from PCs, Macs and hand-held computers. Scout also features dual built-in two-watt stereo speakers for multimedia applications.

Scout has a single panel, full-color, 1.6-inch polysilicon LCD engine and a 200-watt metal halide lamp, which offers the presenter more than 500 hours of life. In 1996, Lightware became the first company to offer a sub-10-pound high performance LCD projector. More recently, Lightware became the first to break the $3,000 price barrier. Now, with the introduction of Scout, Lightware acquires another industry benchmark and sets a new industry standard for portability.

Starting in February 1999, Scout will be available through Lightware and leading resellers of electronic presentation systems in the U.S., Canada and worldwide.

Lightware's LCD projectors are used for computer and video presentations in business, training and educational applications. The veteran management and product development teams have more than 50 years of projection industry experience and hold numerous patents.
