So you’ve got this utterly brilliant application or multimedia routine, it runs excellently well on your notebook, your batteries are charged and you’re off to show the client just what your company can do. Trouble is, the screen on your notebook at 10.8 is not that big, and when you get there, you find that not only the client, but his wife, his secretary, the finance director, the sales director and the company secretary, not to mention the client’s dog, all want a look at the same time, and it is only then you remember the Proxima Corp ad you threw away. You see San Diego-based Proxima makes projection displays, and has just come out with a Super VGA model in its family of Lightbook ultra-portable notebook projectors. The company claims that the 11 lbs Lightbook Model LB20 features compact, rugged design with 800 by 600 pixel resolution as standard. It displays 200 ANSI lumens peak, projects 16.7m true colors, and supports an image size of four feet to 14 feet diagonal. Presentation and projector control are provided via a backlit projector keypad and two infra-red remote controls. The Cyclops Quick Remote supports the most frequently-used features in presentation control, and the Cyclops Remote Control provides complete projector control, presentation control, wireless mouse support and two user- definable keys to program more than 25 special effects and presentation tools, Proxima says. It claims its Cyclops F/X software enables users to add sound effects and other enhancements such as spotlights, zooms and custom title screens. The Lightbook LB20 projector is available now, at a challenging $6,000.
