Melville, N.Y. – Canon U.S.A. introduced Thursday the REALiS WUX6000 WUXGA LCoS projector.
Designed for professional markets, the projector uses LCoS microdisplay technology with Canon’s Aspectual Illumination System (AISYS) to produce up to a 2,000:1 contrast ratio.
The new projector includes multiple image-mode settings and adjustments, a choice of optional Canon projection lenses to match a variety of screen sizes and installation environments, motorized lens shift for placement at multiple angles and flexible connectivity solutions including: HDMI, DVI-I, and RJ-45.
“The REALiS WUX6000 is ideal for users in multiple markets such as education and business, or professionals in security monitoring and government,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, Canon U.S.A. president and COO. “This projector combines bright, high-resolution image quality, advanced picture adjustments, installation versatility, and low-cost per lumen to deliver an excellent combination of price and performance value and quality.”
The REALiS WUX6000 D Pro AV installation LCOS projector is also available with all of the same features as the REALiS WUX6000 plus a special DICOM Simulation Mode for displaying monochrome digital X-rays, CAT scans, and MRIs. The mode is said to offer both clear and blue base color temperature presets, and simulates results of devices compliant with the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) Part 14 standard.
A new image processing engine in the projectors is said to be able to produce multiple types of video and computer signals with accurate colors, deep blacks, and blur-free movement.
A motorized lens-shift feature can be operated by remote control, and a new Lens Position Memory function stores up to four lens position settings, for easy switching between projector set-ups.
The Canon REALiS WUX6000 and REALiS WUX6000 D installation LCoS projectors go sale through auorthized Canon dealers in November at suggested retail prices of $5,499 and $6,149, respectively.
