Canon brings two new installation LCOS projectors for the professional AV market, the REALiS WUX5000 and WUX5000 D. Both models utilizes Canon’s fourth-generation AISYS (Aspectual Illumination System) optical technology to maximize the display capabilities of their advanced LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) imaging panels. The projectors delivers 1920×1200 16:10 widescreen resolution, and a high brightness level of 5000 lumens.
The REALiS WUX5000 and WUX5000 D feature a built-in Canon Color-Correction IC (integrated circuit) and 3D color LUT (look-up table) for six-axis color management, amd includes the Memory Color Correction that enables users to save their preferred color settings. Their Lens-Shift feature allows installers to overcome moderate projector-placement obstacles by shifting the lens itself to adjust the vertical and horizontal position of the projected image. When used in multi-projector configurations, the REALiS WUX5000 and WUX5000 D can also be stacked or installed side by side. The WUX5000 D has all features of the WUX5000 model and adds a DICOM Simulation mode designed to reproduce medical images such as X-Rays, CAT scans and MRI images with superb 21-step grayscale gradation.
Canon’s new WUX5000 and WUX5000 D are equipped with built-in 5-watt speaker. They provide HDMI 1.3, DVI-D, PC inputs, two audio inputs and one audio output. There are also RJ-45 network port and RS-232 serial connection. Canon has three lenses, 1.5x Zoom, 0.8x Ultra Wide Angle single focal length, and 1.7x Long Focus Zoom, for use with the WUX5000 and WUX5000 D projectors.
Coming in March, the REALiS WUX5000 and REALiS WUX5000 D have suggested list prices of $8,999 and $9,999 respectively.
