MELVILLE, N.Y. —Canon U.S.A., a manufacturer of professional image acquisition and display products, announced the introduction of a projector that combines 1,920 x 1,200-pixel reolution witn 5,000 lumens of brightness and up to a 2000:1 contrast ratio. The WUX 500 Pro AV projector also features built-in HDBaseT (a first for Canon projectors)<, a flexible lens and optical system and Canon’s LCOS technology.
The REALiS WUX500 includes built-in edge blending, picture-by-picture display and 24p support, as well as an optical system that allows the projector to maintain virtually the same amount of brightness at different throw distances (constant F-stop) and a 0-60 percent vertical lens shift for wide keystone correction.
For those in the medical education and training fields, a separate model, the REALiS WUX500 D Pro AV projector, is available with all the same features plus a special Dicom simulation mode for displaying monochrome digital X-rays, CAT scans and MRIs with smooth grayscale gradation. This mode, which offers both clear and blue-base color temperature presets, simulates the results of devices compliant with the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine Part 14 standard. This mode can also be used in other specialized applications, such as black and white photography, where an expanded range of gamma adjustment is required.
Among the new features and benefits of the Canon REALiS WUX500, some notable ones are HDBaseT, network multi-projection over Wi-Fi and PC-Free multi-projection.
The REALiS WUX500 is equipped with a built-in HDBaseT receiver allowing HD video, audio and serial control signals to be transmitted over a single Ethernet cable with a maximum distance of 328 feet (100m). This helps reduce complex wiring schemes used for a typical setup as well as maximizing long cable runs with minimal image quality degradation.
