Incorporating multiple features for convenient installation and maintenance, the new REALiS WUX5000 and WUX5000 D Installation LCOS Projectors utilize Canon’s fourth-generation Aspectual Illumination System (AISYS) optical technology, the company says. The AISYS is designed “to maximize the display capabilities” of the projectors’ advanced liquid crystal on silicon (LCOS) imaging panels.

The combination of those technologies enable the projectors to deliver higher-than-HD-resolution (1920 x 1200) widescreen video and still images with an aspect ratio of 16:10 and a high brightness level of 5000 lumens, Canon says. The 5000 lumen brightness level improves display quality in long throw venues or rooms with relatively high ambient light levels, thereby increasing the versatility of the new projectors for a wider variety of viewing environments, the company adds.

The new Canon REALiS WUX5000 and REALiS WUX5000 D LCOS Projectors expand Canon’s line of high-performance products for the installation market. Additional Canon projectors in this category include the REALiS WUX4000, REALiS WUX4000 D, and the LV-7590.

“The REALiS WUX5000 series is ideal for end-users in such markets as education, business and government, as well as for professionals in photo studios, film and TV production facilities, theme parks and museums,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, Canon Imaging Technologies and Communications Group’s executive vice president and general manager.
