Many businesses find digital projectors useful presentation tools, but the market has been held back because of high prices.
This is why Kodak is giving itself a pat on the back for coming up with the V600, which threatens a wallet dent of £1549.
Being a Kodak product it also comes with a good imaging pedigree. Kodak digital cameras and scanners have regularly performed admirably in when reviewed in our labs tests.
The specifications of this model compare well to products currently in our top ten table. The brightness, measured in ANSI lumens, is 800 - higher than some of the models in our Top 10 www.pcadvisor.co.uk/reviews/hardware/projectors/topten.cfm.
The higher the ANSI lumens rating, the better the picture quality. The lamp included will last an average of 4000 hours, according to Kodak.
The maximum screen resolution is 1024x768. It can only accept inputs of up to 800x600 and uses interpolation to boost the image up to the higher resolution.
The next model up, the V600 Zoom offers a manual 1.3x zoom. It also comes with a remote control. The V600 Zoom retails for a similarly modest £1699.
Both models come with built in stereo audio. They can take inputs from PCs, Macs, DVD players, VCRs and even digital cameras. Finally, both are a lot lighter than most projectors at a mere 3.4Kg. Website: www.kodak.co.uk
