Canon is set to release two two new high-resolution multimedia projectors for medical imaging, the REALiS WUX10 Mark II D (1920x1200) and REALiS SX80 Mark II D (1400x1050). They feature a DICOM Simulation mode for compliance with the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) Part 14 standardized display function for display of grayscale images, providing greater flexibility for medical training and conferences where a large display is needed (not for medical diagnosis).

"In the medical field, subtle grayscale differences on digital X-rays, MRIs and CAT scans can communicate highly significant information," said Yuichi Ishizuka, senior vice president and general manager of the Consumer Imaging Group at Canon U.S.A. "These new projectors offer professionals in the field of medical education and training the ability to display high-resolution images with required grayscale levels to larger audiences."
Both multimedia projectors will feature the LCOS technology found on all REALiS models.
Both will allow the user to calibrate directly on the projector rather than having to purchase additional equipment. Canon's DICOM Simulation mode offers 21 different levels of grayscale gradation for greater flexibility when calibrating in a classroom, conference room or any other venue where a large display is required and the ambient light can vary.
They're expected to be available in October.
