Canon Introduces New Short-Throw Projectors

Canon has introduced two new short-throw projectors particularly suited for higher education, including one model designed for use in medical education and training.

The REALiS WUX450ST PRO AV LCOS projector has native WUXGA resolution of 1,920x1,200, 4,500 lumens of brightness and AISYS enhancement that projects bright, highly detailed and contrasted images.

Likewise, the REALiS WUX450ST D Pro AV Installation LCOS projector includes a special DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) Simulation Mode to display monochrome digital X-rays, CAT scans and MRIs with grayscale gradation.

Both models weigh less than 14 pounds and have 1.35x optical zoom, a short-throw ratio of 0.56-1 and 0-75-percent vertical lens shift.

The new projectors are equipped with:

  • A Canon lens that uses both dual-sided aspherical and ultra-low dispersion lens elements;
  • LCOS technology with AISYS-enhancement that delivers virtually seamless images and low-latency playback for improved display of video content; and
  • Advanced color management.

Options available include:

  • Dynamic Gamma that analyzes individual areas of an image for specific, independent contrast adjustment;
  • Memory color correction that enhances skin tones and other color features; and
  • 6-axis color adjust that allows fine-tuning of the hue and saturation of colors.

The REALiS WUX450ST PRO AV LCOS projector has a suggested retail price of $7,329 and the REALiS WUX450ST D Pro AV Installation LCOS Projector a suggested retail price of $7,959.
