Ultralight Projector – Slim And Road-Ready
Lightware is raising the bar in the affordable
ultraportable projection category, expanding its breakthrough Scout
family to include a slim, road-ready presentation system at just
$2,495 -- $2,000 below the nearest competitor in its class. Weighing
in at only 4.9 pounds and taking up less space than a telephone
book, Scout 2000 slips neatly into a briefcase alongside a laptop
creating an inexpensive, self-contained unit designed for sales
and training forces, and other traveling professionals.
with virtually any laptop, the Lightware Scout 2000 provides road
warriors with high resolution, VGA through XGA, and plug-and-play
setup. Business people on the go can equip any board room for vivid
presentations in minutes.
reduced the weight and price of its new Scout 2000 system by designing
out duplicate features such as television adapters and stereo sound
since CD-ROM/DVD drives and speakers are becoming standard on most
laptops. The result is a high value unit geared for portability
for road warriors of all budgets.
found that a core segment of our audience - the traveling business
professional - doesn't require all the audio and video functionality
we packed into the original Scout, since the user's laptop is usually
multimedia-equipped. A lighter and less expensive alternative made
more sense," Al Patz, president, Lightware, said. "With Scout 2000,
companies can afford to equip entire sales and training staffs with
powerful presentation technology without breaking the bank."
1996, Lightware became the first company to offer a sub-10-pound
high performance LCD projector. In 1998, Lightware introduced Scout
- the world's first ever five pound projector at a mere $3,000.
initiated the move to bring ultraportable projection equipment from
a niche market to the mass consumer with the original multimedia
Scout," William Coggshall, President of the large-screen displays
market research firm of Pacific Media Associates (Mountain View,
CA) said. "This new offering dramatically broadens the appeal of
the Scout family to those buyers who want a sub-10 lb. projector
(which we estimate will soon comprise 80% of projector buyers),
offering the lowest price of any projector using state-of-the-art
2000 projects images from PCs, Macs and handheld CE devices. A single
panel, full-color, 1.6 inch polysilicon LCD engine and 200-watt
metal halide lamp pack 500 ANSI lumens of projection power. Color
coded cables make Scout 2000 as easy to set up as it is to carry.
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.
