Canon announces REALiS SX6000 and REALiS WX6000 High-Brightness Pro AV Series Multimedia LCOS Projectors
Canon U.S.A continues its strong commitment to the installation projector market with two new competitively priced additions to its high-brightness, high-resolution REALiS line of Pro AV Series multimedia LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) projectors, the SX6000 and the WX6000. The Canon REALiS SX6000 and REALiS WX6000 projectors integrate new, advanced LCOS display panels with an improved pixel-spacing aperture ratio of 96 percent. The REALiS SX6000 will deliver 6000 lumens of brightness at SXGA+ (1400 x 1050) resolution and an aspect ratio of 4:3 while the REALiS WX6000 delivers 5700 lumens of brightness at WXGA+ (1440 x 900) resolution and an aspect ratio of 16:10. In addition, both projectors feature a built-in Six-Axis Color-Correction IC and 3D Color LUT (look-up table) to provide superb color reproduction accuracy. Both of these new installation projectors are designed to provide exceptional display performance for large conference rooms, small theaters, and other long-throw venues with relatively high ambient light levels in a wide range of professional AV markets.
The new REALiS models are capable of displaying high-resolution video and computer signals with exceptional rendition of movement, crisp contrast, and sharper blacks. Canon’s REALiS SX6000 and REALiS WX6000 projectors also include greater burn-in resistance which is ideal for applications that require long periods of continuous projection. While providing high luminance, the new LCOS display panels also deliver higher energy efficiency, as compared with other manufacturers’ display technologies with similar luminance ratings. The Canon REALiS SX6000 and REALiS WX6000 Pro AV Series multimedia LCOS projectors have suggested list prices of $6,799 and $4,999, respectively. Both are expected to be available through authorized Canon dealers by October for the REALiS SX6000 and September for the REALiS WX6000.
