Canon launches its brightest-ever REALiS Installation LCOS Projectors
Canon U.S.A., has introduced its brightest-ever REALiS Installation LCOS Projectors, which are designed to provide exceptional display performance for a wide range of professional AV markets. Incorporating multiple features for convenient installation and maintenance, the new REALiS WUX5000 and WUX5000 D Installation LCOS Projectors utilize Canon’s unique fourth-generation AISYS (Aspectual Illumination System) optical technology to maximize the display capabilities of their advanced LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) imaging panels. This combination enables the projectors to deliver higher-than-HD-resolution (1920 x 1200) widescreen video and still images with an aspect ratio of 16:10 and a high brightness level of 5000 lumens.
The 5000 lumen brightness level improves display quality in long throw venues or rooms with relatively high ambient light levels, thereby increasing the versatility of the new projectors for a wider variety of viewing environments. The new Canon REALiS WUX5000 and REALiS WUX5000 D LCOS Projectors expand Canon’s line of high-performance products for the installation market. Additional Canon projectors in this category include the REALiS WUX4000, REALiS WUX4000 D, and the LV-7590. The Canon REALiS WUX5000 and WUX5000 D Installation LCOS Projector have suggested list prices of $8,999 and $9,999 respectively. The new products are scheduled to be available through authorized Canon dealers in March, 2012.
